At Musikmesse 2014, Bastl Instruments introduced the microGranny 2.0 – a monophonic granular sampler.
The microGranny 2.0 reads wav samples from microSD card and applies granular algorithms to them. You can also adjust start, end, sample rate (tuned or free run), crush and envelope (attack release).
MIDI Input allows external control of all parameters as well as transposition of the samples, or playing individual grains by different keys.
Here’s a video demo of the microGranny 2 in action: Continue reading

Each of the sixteen tiles is a playback machine in its own right with it’s own set of assignable playback parameters and Fx settings, which can be mixed and adjusted within each of the Tiles’ Pad mode. Patterns of tiles can be recorded and played back using the tile sequencer panel. Continue reading
