Reaktor 6


FOLDS is an extreme wavefolder which folds the input along a sawtooth or pulse shape.

Despite being a really aggressive shaper, aliasing is maintained to an acceptable level using the anti-aliasing method I recently co-authored :

The GUI makes use of new GUI widgets taking advantage of latest Reaktor update and using only multipdisplays with antialised lines for the indicators in order to reduce the memory footprint and get infinitely fine knob resolution.

is an input level control.

allows to curve the input before the fold in order to compress or expand the folding cylces.

let you clip the input before the clip in order to limit the number of olds. The limit will make the folding end on the min/max or at 0 depeding on setting.

morphs between a Sawtooth and a Pulse wave.

shifts the phase of the main sawtooth shaper which acts as pulse width when Shape is set to the maximum (squarewave).

allows to round the edges of the wavefolder.


1.02 :
- improved output level compensation for the smooth parameter
- fixed level never reaching exactly to 0.
- cleaned up some code

1.01 :
- fixed name label overlap with AB buttons
- updated info panels for each knob

1.0 : initial release

best distortion in the library by far

Might want to put a hp /dc blocker at the end ( 4HZ HP is enough ). The pulse width outputs a dc signal . Really not so healthy when patched into other blocks /speakers

This is a beautiful sounding effect! Thank you so much for sharing. I am so glad to see your continued contributions to the Reaktor library :).

This sounds incredible! I have two minor nits to pick though--the text box of the heading overlaps the A/B buttons (I just reduced the width to 108), and I noticed the info pane for each of the controls actually refers to the level control from the LPG block. Nevertheless, excellent, excellent work!

Thanks Efflam, it's good to have examples to the new functions of R6.03!
