This is a pure gem here! I encourage ev' who likes sound design & more, to dive into. Worth the money!


Thanks! Glad you like it.


When I'm in Live 10 (under the settings button) in the audio section, I only have Audio setup Mixer interpolation as an option. In Max I have the option to record sample, but I bought it for use in as a Max for Live as a plugin. Any ideas? I can't even see a record button on the main GUI in Ableton. I tried emailing from your main site last night, but couldn't find an option to upload a photo.



Hello again,

Although the creator of this plugin has been in touch with me and explained that the Max4Live version of this plugin cannot accept incoming audio and only the Max version functions as in the videos, I did not purchase the plugin for Max. I bought it as a plugin for Ableton. This may be a great plugin that can produce amazing sounds, but I'm not interested in using Max alone to make this. I want to use it in Ableton.

Hopefully I can get my refund considering the advertising on this site as a Max4Live plugin and the failures as a Max4Live plugin

Hi Arthur,

As explained, this is a limitation because this is an M4l instrument and not an audio effect. Anyway, you can still record your samples directly into the GranuRise granular buffer.

I have made a tutorial which explains how the recording of live input works in the M4L version. Here is the link

Basically, the functionality of the M4L is the same as in the Max version; only the procedure is different.
But as a plus with this system, you get some extra creative options with the Ableton Live Clips (more here

Hope that helps.


i might get this soon, look's way more exciting than a Tasty Chips GR1 Granular Synthesizer Blowing Raspberries =D

Can we drag samples into it in the M4L version? Are their any other differences with the m4l version?


Yes, you can drag the samples. There is also a unique way to use Live clips as sample sources for GranuRise and switch them on the fly. See here the example -

Another important difference is that GranuRise is this. I'm attaching the text from the readme here: "Ableton Live allocates only 1 CPU core for M4L plugin instances. This means that GranuRise cannot utilize all the available CPU resources of your machine." So currently, the GranuRise performance is better in the Standalone Max version of GranuRise. Hopefully, this will change in the future, and Live will allow more CPU cores for M4L devices. Please note that if you purchase GranuRise, you will get both versions, the standalone and the M4L. Hope that helps.
