arbhar heralds a new generation of granular processing in eurorack. Sampled audio can be chopped into tiny grains, scattered, shaped, re-pitched, reversed and layered for an endless range of audio manipulation from seamless frozen tones to mutated acousmatic madness.
Featuring a condenser microphone set into the front panel, built in audio analysis for automatic sampling and internal modulation over various parameters; this is truly a granulator like no other.
• Granular processor (Lexer method)
• Two granular engines available simultaneously:
1. controlled by intensity and grain length settings (up to 24 grains)
2. externally triggered grains (up to 20 grains)
• Manual and automatic playhead control for granular textures and time stretched
audio playback (Scan/Follow mode)
• Sampling wavetable oscillator
• 6 sample buffers (10 second record time each)
• Built in condenser microphone
