Pulsar

PULSAR is an effect processor that enables you to apply complex rhythmic and FX/Lo-fi textures to any kind of audio source.
Combining two “Slicers” (independent Step-Sequencers – one per audio channel – with variable gate repeats per step), you can “slice up” your sound and modulate the
parameters of the main FX and VCF/VCA sections.
  • Create your “sliced” signal with the variable number of gate triggers per step
  • Adjust the sync factor to the host clock, sequence length, step On/Off state and gate width for both    sequencers
  • Shape the overall sound with the analog sounding multimode filter in the VCF section
  • Insert an effect in the FX section choosing from four different algorithms (Tape Echo, Pitch Shifter, Modulator and Lo-Fi)
  • Make the final adjustment in the VCA section with controls over stereo widening and distortion level
  • Modulate the main parameters with the CV control from the two step sequencers
  • Use the CV smooth to glide between values
  • Mix the dry/wet signals of either the two “slicers” and the main FX
  • See how parameters are being modulated by the sequencer with the LED blinking inside each main knob
The PULSAR interface was built with focus on instant usability, easy access to all parameters and with a creative approach in making new sounds.

Flesh – new Reaktor instrument developed by electronic musician and inventor Tim Exile

November 18, 2015 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comments Off on Flesh – new Reaktor instrument developed by electronic musician and inventor Tim Exile 

Native-Instruments-Flesh-700x385

Native Instruments has announced the release of Flesh, a new Reaktor instrument developed by electronic musician, producer, and inventor Tim Exile.

FLESH uses a set of advanced algorithms to turn rhythmic source material into all the elements of a complete production, including basslines, melodies, chords, harmonies, and more. The instrument is aimed at creative producers looking to enhance their live sets or find fresh inspiration for their original productions through a fun, improvisational approach.

“The concept for FLESH came to me when touring with my custom looping, beatmaking, and improvising instrument that I built in REAKTOR,” says Tim Exile. “I was missing a way to make harmonic and melodic material in a live, improvised scenario. I wanted something that would empower me to create expressive and dynamic sounds which fit in perfectly with whatever was going on at the time.”

FLESH was designed to be a fun and easy-to-use performance instrument.
Its advanced algorithms analyze the transients and spectral profile of sampled source material in the background. This information is then sent to four audio engines as curves and triggers for re-synthesizing the source material. The result is dynamic riffs, grooves, and chords that retain the feel of the original sample. This advanced processing is made possible by the REAKTOR 6 engine.

FLESH comprises four audio engines, plus effects and modulation sections. Each engine has a specific function, from changing the sonic character of the sample itself to transforming it into a monophonic sequence or lead, chords, or sub-bass frequencies. Additionally, the sound generated can be further modified by the effects section and modulation page. The effects section re-creates a highly-modified dub delay while the modulation page allows producers to add subtle to radical motion to their sound.

FLESH features a streamlined control set allowing for radical changes to the rhythmic and tonal output of the instrument. Producers can play rich harmonic progressions, trigger and switch source samples and sound snapshots, then tweak parameters across all engines at once in real time. A clever system of global macro controls allows for consistent and tactile live tweaking on just four main controls – Spectrum, Character, Length, Mod.

FLESH is the first REAKTOR Instrument designed from the ground up to get the most out of the KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series keyboards. FLESH uses the Light Guide to provide tight visual feedback, highlighting sounds and samples, and sequenced harmonies. Native Map® automaps parameters to the eight control knobs on the KOMPLETE KONTROL keyboards. Users can also save presets – including samples – and recall them in real time.

Tim Exile has seen his career move from performing in small clubs, to big stages around the world and releasing albums on the Planet Mu and Warp imprints. For the last years, Tim has worked closely with Native Instruments to design his own set of ‘audio instruments’ including THE MOUTH and THE FINGER.

Flesh for Reaktor 6 and Reaktor 6 Player is available for purchase for $99 USD / 99 EUR / £89 GBP.

C-Tools – trinity of retro synth sounds for Native Instruments Reaktor

July 23, 2015 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comments Off on C-Tools – trinity of retro synth sounds for Native Instruments Reaktor 

Heavyocity-C-Tools-700x700

Heavyocity has announced it has partnered with Icebreaker Audio to release C-Tools, a trinity of retro synth sounds for Native Instruments Reaktor.

Inspired by the future aesthetic of the 70’s and 80’s, C-Tools is three distinct instruments: Capsule (drums), Coil (bass) & Clique (keys). From nostalgic strings to archetypical pulsing rhythms, C-Tools is the framework for building the vintage synth sound of yesterday, today.

“C-Tools was really built out of necessity,” says Icebreaker Audio Founder Adam Hanley. “Personally, I wanted an all-in-one tool that I could use, right out of the box, to produce the kind of retro synth sounds I use most often, without being restricted to a single piece of vintage hardware. And C-Tools does just that.”

C-Tools features

  • Capsule: the C-Tools Drum Machine, featuring eight drum channels and a built-in sequencer. Complete with thumping kicks and kitschy hand claps, Capsule takes a mostly analogue approach to its synthesis engines. Also with an additional effects chain crafted specifically for drums, including a gated reverb.
  • Coil: a hybrid monosynth designed especially for bass sounds. It uses digital FM and analogue subtractive synthesis techniques to produce a rich sound palette – from biting and percussive, to deep and throbbing, and all spaces in between.
  • Clique: a combination of string machine and combo organ – two instruments that used similar frequency division techniques to produce their polyphonic sounds. Added is a split keyboard routing mechanism, which allows you to assign different parts of the synthesizer to the upper, lower, or both halves of the keyboard.

C-Tools is available for purchase for the introductory price of $29 USD until July 28th, 2015 (regular $59 USD). Requires Reaktor 5.9.2 full version. A one week bundle offer of $59 USD is available for purchasers of C-Tools and BitRate II & MonoBoy.

Reaktion-Vokaloid-700x374

 

Reaktion has released Vokaloid, a format filter ensemble for Native Instruments Reaktor.

Vokaloid is basically a Formant Filter – a special kind of filter with fixed frequencies in the spectrum (formants) that simulate the sound of vowels of the human vocal tract.

In each circular box you can select a different vowel sound and smoothly scan through them with the “Scan” parameter.
You can vary the timbre with the “Age” parameter and control the stereo widening with the “Spread” parameter.
You can use an LFO or an Envelope Follower as a modulation source for all these parameters.

Vokaloid is available for purchase for 9 EUR.
