EmissionControl2 (EC2) is a new standalone interactive real-time application for granular synthesis and sound file granulation. It is available for OSX, Linux, and Windows.

Features include:

  • Granulation of multiple sound files simultaneously
  • Multiple simultaneous grain streams
  • Synchronous and asynchronous grain emission
  • Intermittency control
  • Per-grain signal processing (envelope, waveform, amplitude, frequency, spatial position, filter center frequency and resonance)
  • Unique filter design optimized for per-grain synthesis
  • Matrix modulation control of all granulation parameters with six LFOs
  • Real-time display of peak amplitude, grain counter, waveform, and scan range
  • Scalable GUI and font size
  • MIDI Learn enables mapping to any MIDI continuous controller.
  • Code is open source and available at GitHub
  • Maximal "Grain Integrity" (tm)
