💫 Short Summary

Vector Grain is a granular looper and polyphonic sampler with a unique modulation system controlled by a 2D particle simulation. Users can adjust sample playback parameters and manipulate particle attributes to control sound elements. Each particle represents an independent playback of the sample, with MIDI Mode creating new particles per note played. The system can create evolving pads and textures, with controls for adjusting particle behaviors and forces. The sound possibilities depend on the source material used, and exploring presets showcases the achievable range.

Users can adjust sample playback parameters like start, size, and fade, as well as manipulate particle attributes to control sound elements.
Each particle in the system represents an independent playback of the sample, with MIDI Mode creating new particles per note played.
The particle attributes can be mapped to affect panning, filter, pitch, size, and gain.
Additional controls in the Particle System tab allow for adjusting particle behaviors and forces affecting movement.
