This slider sets how often the grains will be transposed in pitch. The PITCH GRAINS parameter and the ones below it, INTERVAL, GLIDING, and DIRECTION menu, are interdependent. When the PITCH GRAINS parameter is set to 0, the INTERVAL, GLIDING, and DIRECTION parameters will have no effect. In the Granular display, PITCH GRAINS determines the percentage of different color lines, based on the INTERVAL setting.
The PITCH GRAINS parameter is modulatable.
The INTERVAL can be set from one to twelve semitones. This parameter will have no effect if the PITCH GRAINS slider is set to zero, or if the INTENSITY slider is set to zero. In the Granular Display, INTERVAL selects an alternate color for a percentage of lines determined by PITCH GRAINS.
Range 1 to 12 semitones
GLIDING determines how often the grains will glide between the note that is played and the transposed interval of a pitch grain. This parameter will have no effect if the PITCH GRAINS slider is set to zero. In the Granular Display, an increase in GLIDING is represented by an increase in the number of different colored lines.
Range 0.000 to 1.000
DIRECTIONThe items in the DIRECTION menu determine which direction the PITCH GRAINS are transposed.
There are four PITCH GRAIN DIRECTIONS available:
The PITCH GRAINS will be transposed up only.
The PITCH GRAINS will be transposed down only.
The PITCH GRAINS will be transposed up or down only – they will never be transposed up and down on the same note.
The PITCH GRAINS will be transposed randomly up and down on the same note.
The MODE menu lets you choose between NORMAL and WILD modes. WILD mode creates more dramatic results when the DETUNING or PITCH GRAINS sliders are above zero.
NOTE: WILD mode does not function in LEGACY Mode.
