An interactive granular synthesizer.

By Chris Carlson

https://ccrma.stanford.edu/~carlsonc/256a/Borderlands/#Guide

Installed on Mac OS 10.9.2.

Modified the makefile to point to the Macports version of /opt/local/lib/libsndfile.dylib and /opt/local/include/sndfile.h

Using some of the Max/MSP example sound files.

The app seg faults on load, randomly. If you keep trying, it eventually comes up.
