Device Overview

Name/Version: GrainClouder 2.0
Author: andreicucucucu  
Description: GrainClouder is a granular synthesiser meant as a performance tool. The granular process is kept pretty basic offering only access to the main controls of the synthesis process - like grain size, density, grain position - but it also incorporates a visual aspect which works almost in the same way as the sound production. A video or image sample is being smeared from all 4 sides according to the sound parameters and how they are manipulated. The more clear and recognisable the sound, the more recognisable the picture as well.

Pretty cool granular device! It definitely has some great potential, especially for strange textures and weird experimental stuff. But I think what really hurts it though is that its output is mono. Make the whole thing sound low quality and cheap. I really thing that if the output was full stereo, it would make it sound much better. Could it be possible to have a stereo spread of the grains?

You're right, I don't know why I forgot about the panning aspect. It now has that function too :)

Fantastic! That was fast. Thanks alot for updating it with the stereo output. I will re-download it as soon as I have some time today. Really like this little grain mangler, sounds and feels unique! Thanks again for sharing.

Can this be run in Max 7 without ableton. Would love to try


Hi there! your device seems amazing, i was looking for something like this for ages! sadly i do not get any sound out of it... could it be because i use live 10 / max 8.1? thank you!
