Tasty Chips Electronics has introduced the GR-1 Hardware Polyphonic Granular Synthesizer.
The company says that the GR-1 ‘is great for drones, sound design, film scoring, beat making and composing.’
- Hardware, polyphonic synthesizer with high quality (32 bit, 44.1kHz) audio
- Internal and external memory (USB) offers huge storage capacity.
- Intuitive interface.
- The GR-1 can be controlled via MIDI (USB/DIN) or be used standalone.
- Update firmware, load samples or save (and load) patches/performances to your USB disk or internal memory.
- CV and gate options to connect easily with your (eurorack) modular setup.
- 4 banks of 8 overwritable preset buttons, within a performance. This means you can save 32 presets, each with different samples, in a single performance. You can save as many performances as your USB disk can store.
