Narrativas Sonoras is a very simple audio sequencer that uses granular synthesis at it’s core engine. Its original design dates back to end of 2006. The ﬁrst implementation of the software employed a Processing user interface controlling a hidden Max/MSP sound engine. The second generation ran entirely on Max/MSP, with the graphical user interface, still developed using Processing, running on the java layer available within Max/MSP.
This is third generation and it relies on Processing alone, thanks to the beads audio library, thus being truly multi-platform and providing easier access to the source. The essential element of Narrativas Sonoras’ user interface was based on an example one can ﬁnd in Processing’s Examples folder – Storing Input. The second generation of Narrativas Sonoras was awarded with an honorable mention at Lomus 2008 – International Music Software Contest.
