Experimental delay bank
Superformula Dispersion 7
This is a very strange, experimental delay line. It is multi-band and multi-
voiced. The audio spectrum is split into 11 octave bands which are delayed
based on a 'superformula' delay time. The 11 bands are each handled by
11 voices, which get combined into a new audio stream and fed into the
next set of 11 voices. These 11 voices form a stage and there are 5 stages,
meaning that this is a 55 voice instrument.
It is hard to describe how to use it because it is so sensitive to parameter
Best results occur using slow modulations of very small values.
Warning, this will require a CPU capable of sustaining very high clock rates to
use effectively. I recommend a CPU that will maintain a constant base clock of
5 Ghz or better (constant and sustained, not a temporary boost clock
If you study it and experiment carefully you will be rewarded with an extremely
unusual sound effects generator.
The Block is included with a test ensemble to show some interesting types of
sounds that may be achieved.
Although these ideas are my own, I had a lot of help making this into a multi-
voiced instrument. The various Reaktor Builders who helped out are all
mentioned in the instrument properties and info tips.
