granulizing

i’m interested in granulized sampling.
problem is i’m still quite a max noob and i can’t find a tutorial about this. i looked at the ‘granulized’ max example but this is a little bit too much for me. i don’t get it.

is there an easier way to learn about this? could anybody help me along?

Hi,

For starters…

Take a look at The Computer Music Tutorial by Curtis Roads. This book is a little dated but remains an excellent resource for all things digital audio and includes a comprehensive explanation of various granular synthesis techniques.

Also, explore the attached Granular synthesis patch. This is a great patch made by Nobuyasu Sakonda. (Unfortunately I don’t have max on this computer so I haven’t been able to check that this file works. If you have problems just look for his Granular 2.5 patch on Google).

I have recently been using Nathan Wolek’s Granular Toolkit (Search in the forums or go to Maxobjects.com and take a look there). This is a set of useful objects for creating your own granular apps in Max.

I am no expert but found each of these resources very helpful when I started learning about Granular Synthesis.

Bests,

Nick

sure, I’d love to help! How far along in the max and msp tutorials are you?

Reading about granulation on Curtis Roads’ Computer Music Tutorial /
Microsound books may be useful.

perhaps just keep working with max till the granular example patch makes sense to you. it will eventually. i was once in your shoes but just the other week i took another look at that patch and could actually follow the patchcords and what it all meant. just takes time to be able to read the max language.
