Device Overview

Name/Version: lk.grainnodes 1.1
Author: lewiskeller  
Description: Mac OSX only. Save 9 presets of granular synth parameters and interpolate between them using a 2D node space. Makes it possible to manipulate many parameters simultaneously using simple intuitive mouse gestures. Comes with a glitchy sample and 9 presets loaded, so after installing just click in the node space to start making crazy sounds right away!
*** update mar 7, 2021 - v.1.1: presets are now stored with the live set without having to save or load a .json file. you will still be prompted to save the .json before quitting the set but it's not necessary. however doing so will allow you to reuse the presets in other sets or swap different presets in the same set.

Hi, seems like a great tool. However, I've loaded it up and cannot get any sound when using the mouse over the grid nodes. Am I missing something here ?

Hi Photik, thanks for checking it out! I tried it on a different computer than the one I developed it on to make sure all was well and it worked fine so I'm not sure what could be wrong. When you click and drag on the nodes to you see the granulation parameters change? Do you see a sound file loaded into the waveform display window? Have you tried dropping your own samples onto the waveform display? Is the sustain knob turned up? If you right+click in the title bar of the device you can choose "Open Max Window". Does that show any errors? Let me know and if you're still having troubles I'll see what I can figure out. What version of Live and Max are you using and what specs are your computer? I'm not sure but I think that the granulation external I used is for OSX only and won't work on Windows. If that's it - sorry about that! I'll double check and if that's the case update the device description.

Hi Lewis. I've updated both Ableton and Max, same story. Error notes are newobj - jg.granulate#: No Such Object
buffer~ - non: can't open

Setup is more than capable, 2600x, 32gb ram@3200,

Could actually be that I'm on Win :(

Hi Photik, thanks for writing back. I did confirm that the granulation external I used does not have a Windows version. That's the jg.granulate object which you got the error about. Sorry about that! I'll try to do another version (or change this one) to be compatible with Windows.

Hi Lewis, have the same problem than Photik, i work with windows, the "jg.granulate~" not excist on my m4l patch. Have you a another windows compatible version since ? Thks very much
