Tutorial 19 about granular synthesis with CrusherX is available now.
It deals with the question: how to extract new exciting future sounds for our sample players from all kinds of sound sources (including field recordings) using granular processes. After a bit more than 98 hours of work this video has got the longest one I´ve ever made: 3 hours and 12 minutes (I´ve split the video in two parts to make downloading easier). And it´s packed with approaches, rules, facts, tricks and hints and a lot of practical examples including a complete case study.
