The Mangle

There is a very pretty new VST/AU granular synth plug-in called The Mangle. Over the past few years there have been a bunch of nice iOS granular apps so I am glad to see something new on the desktop. Watch the video above and you can see how useful this plug-in can be. I’ve been playing with the beta for the past few days and keep reaching for it. On the second video above I just quickly recorded myself saying one, two, three and set up a few parameters.

“I’ve been fascinated by granular synthesis for years but I never found a satisfactory plugin to explore it – I wanted full automation in my DAW, preset recall, and tools to ‘play’ the stream of grains expressively. So I built it myself.” – Tom Maisey
