The results of a very interesting discussion in the puredata fb group. I basically hacked a granular synth from an example in the book Designing Sound by Andy Farnell and, with a bit of help from the puredata group, removed the artefacts I was getting when changing pitch.

In other news, the usual hilarity-tinged horror loomed when I happened to glimpse the groping scrotus on video this weekend.

This is great!  I'd be interested to hear what the artifacts were.  But your result sounds really nice.

"groping scrotus" - woo!

Thanks! The artifacts were clicks basically wink Due to resetting the phase when changing frequency...

So how did you fix that? Just simply not resetting the phase?

Well, the granulator in question uses a simple ramp to play through the object, so it would have been necessary to swap that out for a ramp oscillator - [phasor] - which would then need windowing to the first period. Instead, I scheduled the pitch change to the next grain, which sounds great and is much simpler...

Dream of a dream of a dream of a song.

I'm showing in an "Outrage" art show; after a couple of week's worth of submissions, the gallery directory had to institute a "no-Trump" policy.
