It would be great if propellerheads brought out some kind of recylce software that allowed you to use your own samples in the maelstrom. Apparently it would be 'too complicated' at this stage, as the average sample in the maelstrom has 20k grains!The other alternative is the Maelstrom synth in Reason which can do some great granular lead noises etc, but of course you don't get the option to load in your own samples.
Well the FL gran is shweat as!!!! the buffer over ride is awsome as well, I have used it in a few of my tracks in break downs. I kept the of timeness from the BO and it worked a treat but you can get the Buffer Override sounding just the way you want it....Once you have recorded your automation with the BO just in your index bar on the left habd side and go to "channel project" and then slect "automation" and all the automation on all your synths will be there....find buffer override and you can fine tune you X and Y axis and get the buffer stuttering exactly how you want it, it fuggin awsome!!!!!!! for an example right at the end of this track is a buffer over ride break down and it sound alot more spontaniouse than slicing up your beats in time..I think its a much more psychedeli c effect.....so go the FL gran and learn the art of the buffer, its awsome...cameron-nagualsound said:as well as Absynth 2 and 3 Reakor 4/5 has a number of Garnular toys..Traveliser and Grainstates being the two can remember...also Kontakt 2 has some granular stuff too
