Granular synthesis

Amber-X is a granular synthesis application, based upon Amber by Matt McCabe and Jennifer Bernard. Granular synthesis is a process by which sounds are broken into tiny grains or sub-sounds measured in miliseconds.

Amber-X allows users to use WAV or AIFF files to generate granular results. Users can define grain size and density, grain envelope, and several different types of grain generation algorithms among other things. Grain size and density can be defined with initial and final values, or with graphs.
Mac OS X 10.2.8 or later
Amber-X Amber-X v 1.1 Oct 4, 2012 MacOS X UB
New this version:
  • Compiled amber and libsndfile under MacOS 10.6.8 on Intel architecture.
  • Waveform Software Amber-X Amber-X v 1.0 Nov 11, 2006 MacOS X PPC
  • Includes numerous fixes to the audio code to lessen distortion and clicks and fix morphing among other things. Fixes are thanks to Jennifer Bernard.

  • Fixed a problem with WAV format output in which Amber-X wasn't finding the file to convert.

  • Fixed a problem in which Amber-X could attempt to save WAVs as AIFFs or vice-versa. If you try to save a file with a .wav suffix when WAV conversion is disabled in the preferences, Amber-X will automatically substitute .aiff, and similarly with using .aiff when WAV conversion is enabled.
  • Waveform Software Amber-X v 0.9b Apr 27, 2005 MacOS X PPC

    Not too bad if you want to make your own "graintable" samples, especially since it can build samples by morphing between several audio files. Very slow rendering though... recommend the "KTGranulator" AU, which creates grains in real time through a delay line, if you're not making a sample library.
