Available for download, Delta Sound Labs Stream is a granular sampler plug-in intended for sound design, though it presents a latency low enough for dependable live use. Granular synthesis is noted for its ability to take an aspect of a sample and stretch it in all sorts of strange glitchy ways. What distinguishes this granular synthesizer, however, is its cleaner sound when compared to others in the granular space. Because of this clean, relatively artifact-free sound, the plug-in works great for layering effects.
Stream is very easy to use; Drag and drop a sample into the GUI, and select a section of the sample to focus on. Then, you can manipulate the section's grains, which are essentially small slices of the audio that make up the larger sound. You can control how many grains you use with the Voice control, increase or decrease the size of each Grain with the Grain Size knob, or adjust how the grains overlap with the Spread control. Adjust how the grains are triggered with the Reverse control, control randomization with the linear-to-jitter fader, and more.
Stream can operate in Mac and Windows systems. It will work in AU, VST, VST3, and AAX formats.
