The GRM Tools Complete Collection is an un-compared set of 18 amazing plug-ins that have been used by most renowned composers and sound designers around the world. Each GRM Tools plug-ins offers powerful and unique sound transformation and audio processing features. Conceived and crafted by the GRM Group (Groupe de Recherches Musicales) of the famous National Audiovisual Institute of Paris (France), GRM Tools Complete is the result of numerous years of research, experimentation and development.
The GRM Tools Collection contains 18 AAX, RTAS, VST and Audio Unit Plug-ins and can also be used as Stand-Alone applications.
– Evolution Bundle
– Spectral Transform Bundle
– Classic Bundle
– Spaces Bundle
The GRM Tools Evolution Bundle contains : – Evolution
Evolution is used to obtain continuous evolution of timbre by frequential sampling of the input signal. – Fusion
Fusion modifies a sound by playing on delays, filters offset and frequential sliding. – Grinder
Grinder is used to degrade a sound by freezing its frequential or time changes, and by modifying its spectral resolution. It also enables incredible vocoder effects.
GRM Tools ST contains:
Contrast : independant modification of three groups of frequency components, according to the strength of their amplitudes.
Equalize : 31-band graphic equalizer.
FreqWarp : transform a sound by rearranging its frequency components in a completely free and creative way.
FreqShift : transform a sound by any combination of frequency scaling or frequency shifting.
GRM Tools Classic contains:
Comb Filters: five high-Q in-parallel comb filters
Delays: Up to 128 delays with modulation
Doppler: Move sounds with changes in pitch that correspond to their movement
Band Pass: Band pass or band reject filter with exceptionally steep slopes
Freeze: Temporal freeze made of loops
Shuffling: Temporal shuffling of sound fragments
Pitch Accum: Two independent transposers, with delays and modulation
Reson: up to 128 resonating high-pass, low-pass or band-pass filters
GRM Tools Spaces is a powerful tool that enables the positioning and movement of a multichannel source (from 1 to 32 channels) in a multichannel space (from 2 (stereo) to 32 channels). It has a user friendly graphic interface showing the location and intensity of the sources as they move through the multichannel project.
Spaces also includes three other exciting modules that expand the possibilities of the positioning of your sources in a sound field, SpaceGrain, SpaceFilter and Spaces3D.
Spaces3D enables you to move around a source of multichannel sound (from 1 to 64 channels) in a multichannel space (from 1 to 64 channels) in three dimensions. The movement can be free, random, or can follow trajectories predetermined by the user.
SpaceGrain enables the generation of up to 100 ‘grains’ and their placing in a multi-channel sound space.. This gives you 100 points where your sounds are randomly assigned from point to point. Each grain provides a mono site for the sources to be heard. The input channels (up to 8) are randomly allocated to the grains. You can add delay and feedback to create extremely creative effects.
SpaceFilter is used to spatialize the signal by using 4 independent frequency bands that you can set. The input signal spectrum is split into 4 independent bands where you choose the center frequency and the bandwidth to which you can apply delay and feedback. The output of each filter can be positioned individually in a multi-channel space (up to 32 channels can be used). You can separate different frequency elements of your source and make different resonances fly between speakers according to the tempo if you want. Your imagination is the only limit as to what you can make happen with Spacefilter.
