A simple drone machine, with two parallel granulators and serial filters with numerous controls for variation.
The signal path is: uno & dos (granulators) > Filter 1 > Filter 2 > Amp.
Scan controls add periodic variation (sine wave LFO). Jitter controls add random variation (random LFO). Note: the position.scan and rate controls affect the position slider in a not-always-predictable way.

These recordings and snapshots demonstrate a small range of possible tone colors and textures. Import your own recordings and waveforms to explore a wider range of granular and pulsar synthesis (for the latter, I recommend Jovica’s basic waveform packs).
These are still works-in-progress, so please share your snapshots and any feedback with me. Here’s the CC license:
