Generative uses granular synthesis to transform audio from a file or external input in to an evolving soundscape. The synthesis parameters continually change, and also alter the playback position, volume, and panning. Generative now allows you to change the pitch and filter settings for each device, and the internal synthesis engine can be suspended to allow direct control of the granular parameters, for more flexible sound design and compositional applications.
Before testing the demo version, please make sure you have read the System Requirements found in the opening pages of the Quickstart and Manual pdf documents included in the demo folder. Generative needs Java installed on Windows and Mac, and a link to the specific packages of Java for both platforms can be found on the System Requirements page.
