Imaginando Releases '˜FRMS - Granular Synthesizer', for Windows, Mac OS, iOS & Android

FRMS (pronounced frames) gives granular synthesis a musical edge by mixing it with subtractive and FM synthesis to produce a wide variety of possible timbres.  

Portuguese based Imaginando announced today the launch of a brand new virtual instrument, with the worldwide release of FRMS for Windows, Mac, iOS and Android. The second software synth from Imaginando, FRMS combines granular, subtractive and FM synthesis, with a flexible layering system.

How does the layering system work?

Each sound consists of up to 4 layers, each of which can be either granulator or oscillator, but can also work as an FM operator. This allows for a wide range of creative possibilities, with deep modulation options available for each layer.

What kind of sounds can be granulated?

FRMS comes with it’s own built-in library of more than 100 high-quality samples, it can load audio files, record audio to use as a sample, and even granulate live audio. FRMS comes loaded with a bank of 150 preset patches to spark your inspiration too.

Is FRMS Cloud Sync compatible?

FRMS comes with Imaginando’s Cloud Sync technology built in across all versions - it's as simple as signing in to your Imaginando account inside the app/plugin.

What platforms/versions of FRMS are available?

FRMS is available as a standalone 64 bit app for Windows and Mac OS from the Imaginando website, on iOS from the App Store and on Android from Google Play. It is also available in the following plugin formats: VST, AU, AAX, AUv3.
