Some of the parameters of granulation:

> - grain envelope (the envelope of each single grain, e.g. triangle,

> - grain density (can be measured or described in different ways but it's
> the number of grains played in a certain amount of time, the more the grains
> the 'denser' the sound)

Sorry I should have phrased that differently. If your grains are less than
20ms in length,
then the ear will not detect a pitch, but hear a sonic "event". Hence grains
can be as big as
you want, but if you need to be entirely sure that there's no original audio
left percievable, > 20ms.

Thanks for  the clarification though..! -Harry
