Inertia Sound Systems GRANULIZER 2 is a granular Synthesizer plugin for PC & Mac and is a major upgrade with a new sound engine, interface & more!

As a fan of granular Synthesizers, I’m happy to report that Inertia Sound Systems has released an major upgrade for their GRANULIZER granular Synthesizer plugin. GRANULIZER 2 features a brand-new developed sound engine with more controls over the granular engine, comes with a new interface, sync options & more.

Also nice to see is that the plugin is now available also for Windows systems. In total, a nice granular Synthesizer plugin with a good sound engine and a clear GUI design in my opinion.


Our greatest update yet. This has been in the making for over a year. It was created from the bottom up, to be used by musicians, sound designers and artists. We want you to be as free as possible when you’re in your creative zone. We implemented a newly designed, high quality granular engine with controls over grain size, density, speed, grain envelope shape, pitch, and timing randomization. You are now able to sync to host option for the delay time parameter and the grain speed. The Interactive waveform viewer has zoom in/out and loop selection capabilities.

GRANULIZER 2 boasts a grain warping module, featuring a feedback modulation scheme, with controls for smear, smooth and depth, that provides with atonal variations or perceptually acts as a second oscillator. The Grain FX module has spectral processing per grain, manipulating grain sharpness / shape, spread, and frequency shift. The HIVE section of GRANULIZER 2 is a high quality diffusion delay featuring zero delay feedback analog modeled filters with subtle soft saturation, infinite feedback, control over diffusion amount, size, and more.

GRANULIZER 2 comes with custom built presets, with sounds ranging from ambience, drones, glitches and synths. You can create your own from scratch or build upon the ones that already included. The possibilities are endless.
