The article describes an implementation of a synthesis module capable of performing all known types of time based granular synthesis. The term particle synthesis is used to cover granular synthesis and all its variations. An important motivation for this all-inclusive implementation is to facilitate interpolation between the known varieties of particle synthesis. The requirements, design and implementation of the synthesis generator is presented and discussed. Examples of individual varieties are implemented along with a longer interpolated sequence morphing between them. Finally an application, the Hadron Particle Synthesizer, is briefly presented.
