Arturia has introduced Efx FRAGMENTS, a plugin that they say takes “the complex concept of granular synthesis and turns it into a flexible, accessible, and musical tool for the intrepid sound explorer.”

Efx FRAGMENTS is a software effect that allows you to divide, transform, and rebuild any sound using granular processing. They say that it lets create glitchy stutters, grainy stereo ambience, experimental textures, and more.
