Free Granulator Effect Available For Mac, PC & Linux

free granulator synth

Argotlunar 2, a realtime granulator effect for Mac, PC & Linux, is available now as a free download.

Argotlunar breaks up an incoming audio stream into short samples (Grains). Each grain can have random settings of amplitude, panning, duration, delay, pitch, glissando, filter and envelope. The output of all grains is mixed and sent to the main output. The main output can be fed back into the main input.

Time-related parameters can be synced to the host tempo, for rhythmic or pulsing textures. Pitch-related parameters can be quantized for harmonic or melodic effects. Feedback can create chaotic and distorted sounds.

If you give Argotlunar a try, leave a comment and let us know what you think of it!

  1. i made this with argotlunar 2.0.2 awhile ago:

    that was an earlier, rather unstable version, with a tendency to crash every now and then, or just not compile at all. recent versions seem to have fixed these issues. it really does yield some very pleasing textures. the only instrument in this piece is my piano, but argotlunar’s processing created some gritty padlike harmonics.

  2. Actually a really nice granulator. I like the control that it gives over the envelope shapes of the grains, you wouldn’t expect that in a freebie; same thing with the glissando for each grain, each something you end up having to program–nice touch.
