has anybody seen this: a polyphonic polyphonic granulator

I was searching but not finding.

So I wonder how to approach this. I am imagining a granulator that gives several instances of control [for time, speed, duration, pitch, voices ...] to the same buffer. That is: to have several ‘playheads’ each one with its own parameters …

And before taking a deep look into [poly~], something I am being afraid of since the beginnings of my Max path, I just wanna make sure that this could be a way to go … as granulation is using already a [poly~].
Or what are you suggestions on this?

do you mean like this:


This is an old experiment of mine, a simplification of a generative granular playback engine by “MachineSleet”:


I think I no longer have this patch – I’ll have a look – but the concept is pretty much as you describe: build a simple polyphonic granulator with a few voices, then just duplicate it with independent controls. MachineSleet’s version is *way* more sophisticated, And sexier too.


…and don’t you be ascared of poly~. He easy :)
