Grain Proc: a Real-Time Granular Synthesis Interface for Live Performance

Kurt James Werner, Mayank Sanganeria

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


GrainProc is a touchscreen interface for real-time granular synthesis designed for live performance. The user provides a real-time audio input (electric guitar, for example) as a granularization source and controls various synthesis parameters with their fingers or toes. The control parameters are designed to give the user access to intuitive and expressive live granular manipulations.
