Liine Lemur for iPad

I’ve spent the past week learning the lemur workflow and working on templates, and made a template to control Numerology, Audiomulch, and Reaktor.  I replaced two midi controllers with Lemur, and now control everything with my iPad and Novation Launchpad, which i’ve found to be an elegant and flexible solution.  I can do all my read more »

Vector R’ector Reaktor Modding

Edit: ensemble updated as of 12-14-13.  Same file, overwritten, same link, found below. Ah, sweet memories of my TG-33 and the vector control joystick that brought me so much PCM bliss.  This week I found a reaktor ensemble by John Bleech called R’ector, which gave me the warm fuzzies.  So first of all, Thanks Mr. read more »

Reaktor Selections: Noise Toys, Sequencers, Samplers

Here’s part two of my list: everything but effects and synths.  Here you’ll find more of the strange sound generators and tweaked noisemakers, and also some useful samplers and drum machines and loop sequencers. For MIDI/control sequencers ensembles for Reaktor, see my post about it here. Noise Toys, Drone Makers, Grooves: Asonis by Donovan Stringer: read more »

Reaktor Selections: Synths and Effects

A first look at the Reaktor User Library is a baffling proliferation of sounds and tools that are visually incongruent and hard to understand.  Even the factory content that comes with Reaktor, alone, is a massive pile of ensembles that are hard to figure out and get through–I think this is one of the main read more »

Michael’s VOSIM Noise Generator for Reaktor

An old friend of mine, Michael, got back in touch with me lately, and shared some great VOSIM work he’d done in Reaktor.  I especially liked his VOSIM remix of a Lazyfish Ensemble called “StereoDigitalRandomNoiseSource.”  The original ensemble was pretty brilliant, but the use of VOSIM for the sound engine creates a crusty organic quality read more »

Granular Primer part 2: Control Data, Statistics, Reaktor Ensembles

When there are hundreds of grain events happening every second, generating enough control data for all the grains is an interesting challenge.  Most software approaches this problem in a straightforward, but somewhat boring way.  For instance, a common approach with all grain software is the “jitter” or randomization of parameters between certain values–randomly selecting a read more »

Golden BPF-FM for Reaktor (bandpass Filtered FM)

Hello all, I’m back!  Here is a new Reaktor patch that Iv’e been using lately.  It is a 4 oscillator FM synth, with bandpass-filtered modulators (with noise), a comprehensive modulation section, and a filter after the four oscillators.  That may sound fairly simple or boring, but there are a lot of options in this one. read more »

Processing, Visuals, Ratios

I’m working on an audio visual piece for a gallery show that is coming up in a couple months, where I am doing visuals and algorithmic melody generation in processing, and using Reaktor as the sound engine. If you haven’t heard of processing, it’s a free visual and multimedia programming language that is based on read more »

Golden REAKTOR VOSIM!!

Well, for all you poor bastards who don’t own a G2 modular, and can’t use the VOSIM patch I made for mine, I have put together a VOSIM patch in Reaktor.  Actually, part of the reason I made it was just to implement some features I couldn’t get in the G2, and because I thought read more »

Reaktor Modular Sequencing, Pt. 2

Well, looks like my weekend project has been working on my modular sequencing application for Reaktor.  I’ve detailed what this is all about in my previous blog.  I’ve updated the sequencer and added some detailed comments on all the GUI elements to help people get up to speed with using it. some sequencer objects, including read more »
