Superbooth 2019: Gotharman’s Tiny LD could be the smallest granular synth workstation out there

Superbooth 2019: Gotharman’s Musical Instruments has announced the Tiny LD, a shrunken down edition of its Little deFormer 3 granular synth workstation.

The Tiny LD runs the same full firmware from the Little deFormer 3 but minus a few features, with fewer buttons and rotaries, as well as a reduction in sample memory to 43 minutes.

The new model will also feature just the one filter board connector and does away with CV I/O altogether. However, don't let that discourage you, as the Tiny LD is still rammed with features.

Tiny LD specs

  • Granular workstation with 16 parts / 8 stereo voices
  • Each part can be synth, sampler or noise
  • 43 minutes of sampling time
  • 2 filters per part
  • 8 insert effects and 2 output effects
  • Polyphonic sequencer with 16 note tracks and 32 CC tracks
  • 64 random generators, 16 LFO's, 24 envelope generators
  • Stereo in and out
  • Morphing
  • Optional analogue filter board

The diminutive synth is available for pre-order now at €809, with the optional filter board priced at €105 and it looks as though the first units will start shipping in June 2019.

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
