Grey Matter is a collection of 3 instruments adapted from Red Matter, ‘TS’ a time-stretch based loop Re-sequencer for 4/4 WAVs, ‘WT’ uses Wavetables and ‘SMP’ is used for non melodic samples without time-stretch. Sounds are loaded via 8 Drag & Drop slots for samples or wavetables.
There are 12 patterns which can be switched in real-time using whichever Octave the triggers are assigned to via the Triggers setting. Each Pattern uses 13 independent sequencers each with their own Length to affect different parameters such as wave, Slice length etc… which provides an endless world of combinations. Whilst capable of complex re sequencing, you could just use it to simply re-sequence the slices of a single WAV.
Each synth has different Modes and a couple of different sequencer lanes which reflects their sample type, for example ‘TS’ has Slice & Formant whereas ‘WS’ has Wavetable Position & sync. The Modes provide different sound characteristics such as rhythmic LFO pulses.
To load the Samples/Wavetables just drop onto a slot, multiple files can also be dropped to automatically fill up the following slots. Which sample is used is determined by the WAVE Sequencer and the indicator below the slots shows which Sample is used in real-time.
