Free Granular Effects Processor For Windows, HourGlass

HourGlass free granular synth for windows & mac

Xenakios has released a free granular effects processor for Windows, HourGlass:

HourGlass is a standalone application intended for radical sound processing by taking fragments (more commonly referred to as “grains” in other similar software) from sound recordings, to create sound textures. It is not intended for minor transparent corrections of playback speed or pitch, but is rather placed firmly in the sound mangling/glitch territory.

A Mac version is also in the works. Download HourGlass at the Xenakios blog.

    • It says right on this page : “A Mac version is also in the works.”, do you guys read before commenting or giving +1? It doesn’t take a genius to understand that this screenshot was taken from the Mac version which is still in developpment.
