Tasty Chips Electronics GR-1 Granular Synthesizer

   (0 reviews)

The GR-1 is a hardware polyphonic granular synthesizer in a class of its own. The GR-1 is capable of creating textures, characteristic sounds, drones, soundscapes, pads etc. with the help of your creativity! A sample and a few knob tweaks are enough to create something beautiful!

Unique & Powerful

The GR-1 is a unique granular synthesizer. Why? It is a hardware, polyphonic synthesizer with high quality (32 bit, 44.1kHz) audio. Internal and external memory (USB) offers huge storage capacity. We used high quality components in a sturdy aluminum casing

Easy to use

The GR-1 has an intuitive interface and not only usable in the studio, but also very usable for live performances. It is great for drones, sound design, film scoring, beat making and composing.


The GR-1 can be controlled via MIDI (USB/DIN) or be used standalone. Update firmware, load samples or save (and load) patches/performances to your USB disk or internal memory. The GR-1 has CV and gate options to connect easily with your (eurorack) modular setup.


Performances and patches can easily and directly be saved, loaded and copied.
There are 4 banks of 8 overwritable preset buttons, within a performance. This means you can save 32 presets, each with different samples in a single performance. You can save as many performances as your USB disk can store! Samples cost almost no time to load or save.
