Very cool, simple and elegant granulator! I like it. Right off the bat, as a point to fix I'd say the parameter recall when re-opening the Live session. Right now when re-opening, parameters are back to default, which can be quite furstrating. Another feature that would be fantastic is filtering per grain with a random function to have organic filtering for each grains . This is quite a rare feature not often see in granular synthesis. A random function for the frequency of the grains could be pretty nice too. Keep on updating it, it's already really great! :)

So, what do you think about the comments and change, especially the setting recall when reopening a session, that's the one that hurts the most... Doable? :)

Hey! Thank you so much for the feedback! Regarding the parameter recall, I wonder which version of live are you using? Does it never recall the parameters? Trying to understand what can be happening, as when I still didn't encounter that problem in my testing. The filtering per grain is a great suggestion, although I think I'll have to redo the core engine for that (I'm using the cm.indexcloud~ external from the petra package in order to handle the granulation, so I can't modify it's inner functioning.

Thanks a lot again, I'll try to update it soon!

Thanks for getting back in touch.

I re-tested again to make sure, and the parameters are not saved in the Session and are back to default when re-opening. The sample stored in the buffer remains in place though. My setup is OSX Catalina 0.15.7, Ableton Live Suite 10.1.30 (the latest official built from Ableton)

I really like Nuvens, great grain potential so let me know if I can help you testing and checking stuff when you have a version to try, would be happy to help :)
