[spindrift~] is the mother of all granular synthesis externals for Max.

It not only features the standard granular synthesis parameters, but also boasts a slew of powerful per-grain spatialization parameters, designed for equidistant multichannel loudspeaker arrays. Spatialization can be controlled manually or set on automatic ‘spinning’ or ‘drifting’ trajectories.

SoundMagic Spectral is a freeware suite of 23 Audio Unit plug-ins that implement real-time spectral processing of sound. This set of effects give you unprecedented control and creativity in the processing of audio, whether from static audio files or live audio streams.


v1.1 ©2018 Michael Norris

A standalone Max/MSP application that lets you load in an audio file, play with some of the simple parameters of spindrift~, and record the output to a new soundfile.


v1.1 ©2021 Michael Norris

An app that lets you load in an audio file, then using the onscreen keyboard or a MIDI keyboard, you can play polyphonic layers of granular synthesis and record the output to a new soundfile.


v1.6 ©2018 Michael Norris

A standalone Max/MSP application that creates stochastic massed textures from multiple independent, desynchronized versions of a single soundfile.

A Max/MSP external that allows you to process a stereo audio stream using Audio Units.


b1.0 ©2018 Michael Norris

A Max/MSP external that allows you to copy the audio track of a Quicktime movie to a buffer~ object.


v1.0 ©2014 Michael Norris

A standalone Max/MSP application that demonstrates the ability of the auditory perception system of humans to fuse harmonically-related sine waves into a single tone, and to distinguish changes in harmonic gains as timbral quality signifiers.
