Tasty Chips GR-1

Instruments Category: 

The GR-1 is a hardware polyphonic granular synthesizer in a class of its own. The GR-1 is capable of creating textures, characteristic sounds, drones, soundscapes, pads etc. with the help of your creativity! A sample and a few knob tweaks are enough to create something beautiful!

The GR-1 is a unique granular synthesizer. Why? It is a hardware, polyphonic synthesizer with high quality (32 bit (internal), 44.1kHz) audio. Internal and external memory (USB) offers huge storage capacity. We used high quality components in a sturdy aluminum casing.

The GR-1 has a intuitive interface and is not only usable in the studio, but also for live performances. The GR-1 is great for drones, sound design, film scoring, beat making and composing!

Performances and patches can easily and directly be saved, loaded and copied.
There are 4 banks of 8 overwritable preset buttons, within a performance. This means you can save 32 presets, each with different samples in a single performance. You can save as many performances as your USB disk can store! Samples cost almost no time to load or save.
