Soundiron releases Granada 49, Vintage Italian analog suitcase synth from back in the day

GRANADA 49 faithfully captures a rare 1970’s-era portable analog synthesizer by now defunct Italian synth-maker Fesma. The instrument’s classic wood-accented body echoes the popular aesthetics of the 1970s and its fat, warm analog sound cuts through the mix. We’ve captured its old-school creamy tone in 9 classic waveform shapes, with sustains and staccatos. We’ve also created 20 unique sound-designed custom presets, as well as 40 ambient leads and pads that can be played chromatically as atmospheric synth patches or used directly in your DAW for underscoring and texture.

It comes packed with sound-shaping controls to give you tons off flexibility with Volume, Attack, Release, Transient Offset, Vibrato and Octave layering controls. The “Glide” slider allows you to play legato and portamento leads. Our adaptable LFO system offers selectable shape, modulation target parameter, speed, intensity, tempo-syncing and fade-in time. You can also apply your choice of 13 low-pass, high-pass and FX filter types, with assignable modulation options, including velocity, modwheel, expression, after-touch, key position and step-sequencer table control. You can also use our customizable arpeggiator, with a built-in velocity sequencer table and control over arp direction, note timing, swing, randomization and duration. The GUI is rounded out by our modular FX rack tab, with 18 different DSP effect modules that you can assign in any of 10 slots, in any order you wish.
