Sonicware introduces Liven Texture Lab Granular Synthesizer

Sonicware – makers of the Liven Bass & Beats Groovebox, the Liven 8bit Synth and the SmplTrek Portable Production Sampler – has introduced the LIVEN Texture Lab, a granular synthesizer and effects processor.

The LIVEN Texture Lab offers a wide variety of sound textures, ranging from lush ambient pads to aggressive experimental noise.

The Texture Lab uses a granular processor that slices sounds into grains, ranging from 2 ms to 1 second in length, then transforms and reconstructs them in a variety of ways, including manipulating grain shape, density, time warp, spatial position, and playback method to create entirely new sounds.


  • Sample, slice, transform and reconstruct audio to synthesize completely new sounds
  • Granular synthesizer with granular effects processor mode
  • Shimmer reverb for fantastical and majestic sounding spaces
  • 128-step sequencer with parameter locking

Texture Lab is available now to pre-order for $239.00, with shipping expected in June.
