Argotlunar is a
realtime delay-line granulator. It breaks up an
incoming audio stream into short samples (Grains).
Each grain can have random settings of amplitude,
panning, duration, delay, pitch, glissando, filter
and envelope. The output of all grains is mixed and
sent to the main output. The main output can be fed
back into the main input.
parameters can be synced to the host tempo, for
rhythmic or pulsing textures. Pitch-related
parameters can be quantized for harmonic or melodic
effects. Feedback can create chaotic and distorted
Most of the
parameters can be
filter cutoff for grains with higher pitch, and vice
versa. Grains with shorter duration can be panned to
the center, and conversely the grains with longer
duration can be panned wide in the stereo field. )
Argotlunar 2 is available to
download as free (GPLv2) VST effect plug-in for
Windows and Linux. The source code (C++) is
available as well.
