Abstract: Since Barry Truax’s early pioneering work, the increasing availability of powerful and inexpensive desktop computers has led many composers, researchers and artists to experiment and work with granular synthesis and/or granulation processes. During the last two decades a stream of granulation software has appeared, but despite this spread, all these applications have important limitations in terms of efficiency, usability, flexibility and control. This paper describes an abstraction of an efficient and flexible granular processing system built into the Max/MSP environment.
