Tasty Chips Electronics has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund production of the GR-1 Granular Synthesizer.

The GR-1 is a hardware polyphonic granular synthesizer, capable of creating textures, characteristic sounds, drones, soundscapes and pads.


  • The GR-1 is massively polyphonic: 128 grains per voice, times 16 voices = 2048 grains in parallel.
  • 32 bit mixing and a HIFI stereo DAC for rendition.
  • 7″ full-color display.
  • It can use (USB or DIN) MIDI keyboards, USB sticks/disks, USB audio interfaces, and even PC keyboards.
  • CV interfaces for integration with Modular (Eurorack) systems.
  • On-board controls and MIDI connectivity make it easy to manipulate sound.
  • Knobs and sliders allow all granular parameters to be changed in seconds.
  • The GR-1 also allows stand-alone operation: No MIDI keyboard required! The GR-1 has buttons and sliders to create 4 note chords or drones.
  • Built-in headphone amp.
