An Arduino compatible granular sound player / multi purpose digital sound module.
GRAINS is a development of ginkosynthese.com, Jan-Willem from Ginkosynthese gave me the permission to adapt his module for the AE format.
It's based on an Atmega 328 micro controller, well known as the core of the Arduino Uno, Nano and other boards, and can act as a granular sound player as well as different other functions depending on the firmware. It can be programmed directly by the Arduino IDE via the integrated USB socket on the front side of the module (USB cable is included!)
A lot of different codes are available on the Ginkosynthese website; they are are a perfect starting pointfor your own experiments and exploring how digital sound processing works.
Starting in June 2020, the module contains of an additional switch which configures the module for two basic modes: G is for the original Grains mode; M makes the module directly useable for the Mozzi Library, an excellent audio/synth library for Arduino compatible devices.

More detailed information about this module is available on the AE Modular Wiki.
