Anyone use this granular synth? I'm loving it so far. So far it's one of my two favorite soft synths. (This and Aalto).

We used it at the Fejld album as well as Aalto:

It is a nice synth indeed, though a bit hard to work with sometimes. I recommend you Xils-labs VCS3-clone too. Great sounding thingy!

Weird website for New Sonic Arts...no screenshots, nothing but some demos to listen to and a download link :?: :?:
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

Even if it ain't stable yet and it is quite boring in its looks I really like Automat

??? I've been using Automat for about 3-4 years, it's been stable for me in that time.

I concur with this; Automat is free, and I have yet to have it freak out on me.

I am interested in the New Sonic Arts plug, though. Looks interesting enough to give it a go.

Loves me some granular synthesis.

Been using it within Maschine lately and after a while it just starts to scream in noise. And I have to reload the synth.

Weird, what version are you using? I've got the old black and green beta version, but I've seen there's a white version too which is newer.

the osx version has an annoying glitch that renders it unusable for me. 9 times out of 10 it has this annoying three note arpeggio when i load my own sample into it even when all the settings are reset to null. weird because it worked fine when i was using the pre release beta

anybody else experience this?

Admittedly it did use to be a bit on the sparse side :)

We did recently completely redesign our website kinda curious to hear what you think now...!
