Introducing Chroma, a unique sequenced monosynth for Reaktor featuring sound and sequence morphing and multiple control methods – use your mouse, a MIDI controller, Konkreet Performer, TouchOSC or Lemur.
Chroma is a performance oriented monosequencer and VA carefully tuned for ergonomic ease of use and glitch free operation in standalone and plugin mode. Slur features in Chroma match up with legato and glide features in the Gris-Gris synth to create a slinky sinuous note articulation.
Sequences can be created and controlled via mouse, MIDI, Konkreet Performer, TouchOSC and Lemur. Since there is now full OSC support in the Reaktor plugin version, you can do everything with Chroma in your preferred DAW that you can do stand-alone. A dream come true!
TouchOSC and Lemur templates are included in the package but there’s something special about Konkreet Performer that sets things on fire when it’s paired with Chroma and Gris Gris, a certain magic in the way it morphs and distorts sound. It is my firmly held opinion that not nearly enough people use KP and if you want something really special and unusual on your iPad you should rush right over to Konkreet Labs or head straight for the App Store and buy a license.
Chroma is 24.99 USD and can be purchased and downloaded immediately. Remember, Chroma is a Reaktor ensemble and requires a full installation of Reaktor 5.8.0, not just Reaktor player.
Background description below:
This is the first patch I made with XAOC Devices ‘Moskwa Bipolar Rotosequencer’.
This patch features The Moskwa’s CV out to Anti & Uncle OSC, OSC’s outs to Optomix top and bottom section.
Moskwa’s Gate out pinging the Optomix, Optomix out to mixer.
Oh yeah uLFO square out to 8NU8R, 8NU8R out to Moskwa’s direction in.
More features of upcoming metropolis sequencer demonstrated including:
quantizer scale selection
skip stage (blinking leds via double click)
current step note display
tb-303 style slide
This is a proto module (hence some of the crazy wires and lack of panel). Code is %95 done and this is set to be released very soon.
The knobs of a home-made synth are tweaked while it plays a sequence of notes (Syncuino DIY 16-step sequencer, see link below).
Arpie is the novel musical composition system. Put balls as many as you like, and watch as they make nice music. Higher balls hit the keys with long pauses, as opposed to lower balls which hit fast and repeatedly. By combining them you can easily make a wide variety of musical sequences.

BRUNO ENDER LEE – “ARP Odyssey – spiral sequence” – November 2. 2012
Every sound was created with ARP Odyssey MK III, recorded on 4 stereo-tracks (sequence with Doepfer MAQ 16/3, bass, effects & leads) with stereo-panning-delay. Filmed during recording of the bass
composed, arranged & produced by Bruno Ender Lee; 2012 Velvet Voyage Productions
A little song made possible by the new Brick Shaft accessories!
SoundMachine is a 4 track 8-step drum sequencer that uses the LEGO Mindstorms NXT to scan a set of drum “notes” which are then played using Ableton Live. The NXT uses four colour sensors to detect the colour of 2×2 LEGO bricks as the plate is scanned in. A controller written in Processing interprets the colour pattern and sequences MIDI note messages to send to Ableton Live, which in turn plays the sounds you hear.
The music on the video was created by SoundMachine itself – music you can build!
