Puremagnetik has released Grainstation-C, a new free open-source, granular performance software made with Csound. Micah Frank developed and used this software mainly for his new album Quetico.
That software and hardware harmonize well to show the interface of Grainstation-C. The developer did not use a classic visual interface but only a Novation LaunchControl XL Mark 2. It seamlessly integrates into this MIDI controller and the user can process 4 disk tracks and 3 live input streams with it.
You can also save any state as a snapshot and morph to that snapshot at any point in a performance. It features 6 independent pitch delay lines, 6 switchable low pass and high pass filters, live audio looping and multiple granular processing controls including granular time-stretching, frame animation and granular pitch shifting.
It is available through Bandcamp as a free (name your price) digital download and limited edition cassette. Grainstation-C requires Csound.
