Emergence granular vst plugin released

Emergence granular vst plugin released

Jul 14, 2021

I released my first plugin, a granular delay as an entry for the KVR Audio Developer Challenge 2021. You can download it (for free) here:

About the plugin:
Emergence occurs when an entity is observed to have properties its parts do not have on their own, properties or behaviors which emerge only when the partsinteract in a wider whole.
This plugin is a real-time granulator. It continuosly records the input signal into a buffer. The content of the buffer is played back as many short pieces of sound called grains. Up to 600 grains can be generated in 4 streams, each having it's own set of parameters that control grain generation.
A single grain is not that interesting. The most exciting things happen when hundreds of overlapping grains play together, creating anything from complex delay patterns to strange noises to beautiful layered soundscapes.


  • up to 600 grains (depending on your CPU).

  • 4 grain generation streams with independent parameters.

  • parameter randomization.

  • high quality grain pitch transposition (+/- 24 semitones).

  • freeze buffer contents.

  • built-in help (hover over controls and see text at the bottom).

I had this idea for a while and decided to turn it into a plugin for KVRDC21 to share it with others. Hopefully it is already a useful plugin with many possibilities, but there are still some features I want to add before releasing it as 1.0. These include: macOS support, a smoother resizable ui, macros and LFOs for modulating parameters, factory and user presets, and many other ideas.

With your support I will be able to dedicate more time and effort to create awsome new features and more plugins.
