Granular Symphonies

Granular Symphonies is the second expansion pack for Steinberg’s Padshop and Padshop Pro VST granular synthesizers. Epic in its musical vision and meticulously detailed in its execution, Granular Symphonies represents a fascinating new world of symphonic soundscapes and instruments. This unique collection offers ominously dark pads and ethereally fragile instruments, fantastical textures and expressive leads, thunderously heavy drones and sparkling, crisp percussive sounds, to name but a few. Created by Simon Stockhausen, the comprehensive 2 GB sound set combines real-world samples and recordings with granular synthesis technology to offer a range of sounds of intriguing depth, rich in sonic detail. Granular Symphonies is a powerfully evocative sound set with an almost cinematic power to conjure impressions, moods and emotions.

  • 260 new presets with outstanding sounds designed by sound designer, composer and multi-instrumentalist Simon Stockhausen
  • 2 GB of exclusively recorded samples including strings, brass, mallets, vocals and experimental content
  • Available as download only
  • Windows and Mac installer included

About Simon Stockhausen

Simon Stockhausen began his stellar musical career at the age of five. His multi-faceted and wide-ranging oeuvre has since embraced all manner of projects and styles, including jazz and improvisational collaborations, countless compositions for ensembles and chamber groups as well as work for major European theatre companies and orchestras including the Hamburg and Berlin Philharmonic Orchestras. In 2009 he further extended the range of his musical endeavors with the creation of a sound design company through which he produces sounds, patches and libraries for software synths and plug-ins, serving sound designers, musicians and post production professionals.
