Explore a whole new microcosmos of sound

At the heart of this synth are two co-existing sound engines — granular and spectral oscillator — which could not be more different, but united in allowing you to work with samples at a new microcosmic level. You can edit the smallest bits, grains and building blocks, morphing them into completely new, previously unheard synth sounds. They will change how you work with samples forever.
