Understanding Granular Synthesis (Symbolic Sound Kyma GrainCloud & SampleCloud) | Simon Hutchinson

video upload by Simon Hutchinson

"Explaining granular synthesis and giving demonstrations with the Kyma GrainCloud and SampleCloud sound objects.

Granular synthesis is a synthesis technique where we can assemble new sounds from very short "grains" of sound. We can do this with wavetables or longer samples, breaking them down into these short grains before reconstituting them back together in unique ways. Because we can change all of these tiny parts that make up our new sounds, there are exciting opportunities for real time control and performance.
