That reminds me, for a similar program for the Mac why not check out my
Real-Time Granular Synthesizer? It's a little rough still, and needs a
rather fast machine (233 G3 recommended, if you want 44.1 audio, otherwise
take the sampling rate down and it will work on anything faster than 160
Mhz). This summer (if the weather isn't too nice ;) ) I'll be doing a major
upgrade, so I'd love to hear some comments from users.

It's on the web at And of course, it's
freeware too.
