DESCRIPTION

Description for Reaktor/Session Users:
jambientRkt Light is a Reaktor ensemble designed for live jamming with samples, geared to ambient-style sound making and nonrythmical audio collage. It's designed to be played inside the Reaktor interface (rather than to be played through MIDI input).

It consists of three instruments: jamLoop, a sample player and manipulator; jamPaneer, for dynamic panning and spatial effects (lets you 'throw' sounds so they bounce back and force in the stereo image); jamFadulator, for fading channels up and down (including 'motorized' fade up/ fade down, crossfaders, and a two dimensional cross fader that lets you control four sets of channels simulateneously).

Try playing by building up patterns, then dropping new samples into the jamLoops--for gradual layering. Works nicely with both musical samples and nature sounds, sound fx, etc.

Please look at the tutorial in the ensemble, or the pdf or rtf documents included.

Description for Reaktor Designers:
A lot of effort in coding jambientRkt Light is in the user interface: using a gestural, 'reactive' graphical interface, rather than a lot of knobs or tables.

The ensemble demonstrates various sorts of motorized faders, and using 'throwing' in XY pads to make dynamic modulators/pattern generators.

v 0.1 - initial release (v5.1.63 in my numbering)
