New effects processor for Windows – HourGlass

April 28, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Xenakios has released a free granular effects processor for Windows, HourGlass:

HourGlass is a standalone application intended for radical sound processing by taking fragments (more commonly referred to as “grains” in other similar software) from sound recordings, to create sound textures. It is not intended for minor transparent corrections of playback speed or pitch, but is rather placed firmly in the sound mangling/glitch territory.

A Mac version is also in the works. Download HourGlass at the Xenakios blog.

    Hello! Thanks for your blog post about HourGlass. However, if you don’t mind, could you please use a screenshot out of the Windows version, as the OS-X version isn’t really yet ready even for a public beta release? Here’s a screenshot you could use : http://i.imgur.com/CJdBa.png
