Using Grain Science to turn just about anything into a synth patch
Canis at Wooji Juice shared an interesting demo, embedded above, showing how you can use Grain Science to turn just about anything into a synth patch
“So, a parcel arrived in the post the other day from IK Multimedia, with some of their gear inside to try out. I spent some time yesterday running around with the iMic plugged in, recording things I find around the office, and then turning them into instruments
I’m not a professional when it comes to miking stuff up, and this wasn’t in a studio or anything like that. But I like the results a lot better than the built-in mic, and Grain Science has always stood out for the ways it allows you to synthesise based on captured audio. So it was fun putting that side of it to use with higher-quality sound.
These aren’t designed to be presets, they’re just me experimenting with different effects and seeing what variety of stuff I can make from a given recording. I’ve marked the original recordings on the timeline — every sound, no matter how weird it sounds, is based on the same recording (until you reach the next marker).”
