Let's Play with Tardigrain

humbleTUNE has been developing humble little apps for years, but Tardigrain eschews humbleness to be epic! This granular synth is soaring and, unlike many previous granular apps, can be quite smooth. I had a lot of fun exploring some wild tones in here for this Let's Play!

I joked on Monday that I'd have to increase the end credits by 5 seconds to thank all of the new patrons, but I actually had to extend it by 10 seconds to fit everyone in! Thank you once again to each and every one of you!

Video Description:

This year iOS got three great new granular synths! I'm going to explore them all starting with Tardigrain from humbleTUNE. This one is extremely smooth with a lot of modulation available in a simple, performance-oriented, interface.
