Granular Sampler

We have been asked by people to bring microGranny into the modular and we decided to rethink the whole granular sampler idea to fit it best into small size eurorack module. Grandpa is the result! It has 2 trigger inputs to trigger 2 different samples. CV input which is assignable to any sound parameter and signal OUTPUT. The CV input can be also used to trigger grain shift. Grandpa reads microSD card accessible from the front panel and runs the same sound core as microGranny 2. For each sample you can adjust: sample rate, crush, grain size, shift speed, attack, release (full release is hold), start and end position.
