Sound Designers throughout the world have been relying on GRM products to give them innovative effects and a creative advantage. Many of the unusual sound effects heard in the films you have been watching over the years are created by these tools. Remixers also love them for their potential to get ethereal, strange, and definitely attention-catching new sounds.
Recently GRM put together a new bundle, The “Creative Bundle”, aimed at musicians but equally attractive for others too, for you to add new colours to your mixing palette. Great news for those of you who would like have the possibility of using the creative power of GRM plug-ins to explore transforming any of your sounds into mind-warping soundscapes.
The GRM Creative Bundle Includes:
This plug-in lets you create and control any type of delay line from echo to reverberation to phase shift, soften instrumental attacks, create a wide variety of special effects…
Delays consist of a set of delays which are variable from 0 to 6 seconds. Depending on the power of the processor, it is possible to have up to 128 simultaneous delays, whose amplitude and position are controlled. In the stereo version, the delays are assigned alternately to the left hand and right hand channels.
Evolution is used to obtain continuous evolution of timbre by frequential sampling of the input signal.
The timbre of the input signal is sampled at more or less regular intervals. The output signal is obtained by interpolation between the sampled timbres.
Evolution can turn any audio signal into astonishing textures or subtle smoothing effects. Just experiment by yourself using the downloadable demo version and get surprising results!
SpaceGrain enables the generation of up to 100 ‘ grains’ and their placing in a multi-channel sound space.. This gives you 100 points where your sounds are randomly assigned from point to point. Each grain provides a mono site for the sources to be heard. The input channels (up to 8) are randomly allocated to the grains. You can add delay and feedback to create extremely creative effects.
To give you an idea of what is possible with just one part of the bundle, here is an example of the unearthly transformations produced by our friend Simon Stockhausen, using Evolution.
