DESCRIPTION

-made possible by Salamanderanagram and his wonderful front panel patching library https://www.reaktortutorials.com/media/front-panel-patching-in-blocks/62012

-contains Noise and Ring Modulator Blocks from Sandy Small's Infinite Phi collection
-contains Bitcrusher Block from Michael Hettrick's Euro Reakt collection
-contains synced LFO Block by Mete Adam, with delay modification by someone else I can't find now
-velocity sensitivity from Bento Box ADSR has been added to Monark ADS Blocks

-has 4 external inputs to hook up sequencers, modulators or external audio
-has some internal default connections as shown in snapshot 002

-is now redone with the bugfixed version of FPP and should thus be cross platform compatible

-has still no snapshots

Hi. You need the FPP from salamanderanagram, which you can download for free with the link in the description. I recommend getting 1 month of the paid Reaktor Tutorials subscription and watching the tutorial. The FPP is free and quite easy to handle, but also well worth the 9$ for the tutorial. If you don't want to do that you can dig around in the forum, but the tutorial is the best and easiest option.

@Timo Hohnholz: or rather select the entire ensemble and then run it like gentleclockdivider says... I have not tried to automate it yet so I can not really tell... hope you succeed

hm... I thought I did use the function "sort and compress ID's" @Timo Hohnholz: Try going to the "connect" tab, select the instrument and run "ID actions - sort and compress" at the bottom... if thats not enough to get all knobs to show up you might have to give them ID's manually per knob... other than that you could give each knob a midi CC to listen to

I really want to Control this great Instrument with my Novation Bass Station II. Any chances that we will get a Version with automatable knobs (i mean all of them)? Thanks for that great effort!

Really awesome. i hope you make more of these. They feel much more modular than the Wired Blocks from NI

SOme knobs (most of them ) are not automatable because you didn't sort and compress id's . Sort and compress i'd's ( entire ensemble ) in order to automate the knobs .

@Stephen Wey: Paule is already using the bugfixed version of Salamanderanagram's Front Panel Patching library. Maybe I will redo this ensemble, but for now it's windows only, sorry.

Can't get this to patch either, I can drag out a cable but it doesn't connect when I release the mouse, even if I wait till the tooltip telling me to release it appears. Patching is working perfectly in Paule's MS20 clone so it can't just be my system.

I hope this gets implemented and cleaned up one day. When you really think about it, the shift to front panel patching for reaktor blocks would be the big change toward eurorack playability. Unfortunately this might get buried with everyone fawning over the new Kodiak update. The community should come together on this, improve the graphics, and integrate the new technology.

The current version of the FPP library can be downloaded here: https://www.reaktortutorials.com/media/front-panel-patching-in-blocks/62012 (I think this is the new version and cross platform compatible)

Thanks for the nice comments and thanks again to salamander for fixing the connection issue! For now I don't want to fix the ensemble, so it's probably only working right on windows... sorry. @paule You have to select a send or receive macro and then switch over to panel view and position it using the keyboard arrow keys. It will then automatically work correct at that position.

Matthias, in which way you set the coordinates for the sends an receives?

okay, there appears to be a problem (bug) in reaktor where mouse areas are implemented inconsistently across platforms, working on a fix.

Thanks! I created a thread in the forum, with some new observations. Just let me know if I can help in any way. https://www.native-instruments.com/forum/threads/front-panel-patching-issue-debugging-observations.316642/

having tested this and the original FPP quite thorougly, i've never run into these issues. in this ensemble, a failure to disconnect can occur in a few places because there are panel elements slightly on top of the receive modules (particularly, for example, in the mixer). however, i've never seen a failure to make a connection, after hundreds of tries. so i'm not sure what issue you guys are having, but i'd be happy to discuss it with you further. the UL is a bad place for that, so if you want to start a discussion in the forum i can try to troubleshoot the issue with you. i think to start you could place an eventwatcher inside the receive module that you're having trouble with, and watch the events coming in.

Great work! As much as I like keeping patching separate from knobs & switches, there's just something fascinatingly intuitive about this approach. I also seem to have a problem with making the cables "stick". When I drag a cable from output to input, usually it just disappears when I release the mouse button, even if I wait for the "release to create a new connection" -tooltip to appear. This happens maybe 9 times out of 10, and then it suddenly works. It seems pretty random, rather than related to the exact position where I let go of the button (for example). Deleting a cable is just as random: the cable highlights, and the tooltip says "right click to disconnect", but right clicking does nothing... until I repeat it 10-20 times while slightly moving the mouse. I had this same issue already with the simple FrontPanelPatchLibrary ensemble, so it seems to be related to the basic front panel patching framework. Other than that, works great! Can't wait to see what people come up with this! (MacBook Pro, OS X 10.12.15, Reaktor 6.1.1)

Yeah, seems obvious. Running a Mac Pro, Reaktor 6.1.1. What gives?

I love this. It's like "Hey NI gave us a framework to make Modular style modules but I'm going to go my own way". :-) Can't wait to give this a shot after work today. The UI is really nice and I look forward to hearing it in action! Thanks for all your hard work, Matthias. Keep it up!

First point on orange output circle. Hold left mouse button and drag to a white input circle. To delete a cable right mouse button on a white input circle, the cable hight-lighten, left the button. The cable is deleted.

So what's the secret to getting the wires to snap into the inputs when you drag them over?
