Kitten Gate

Sequencer Driven Gate & Filter

Reaktor 5 or lower
Effect Other


This one's a simple one. Two pattern generators modulate rhythm, gate time and accent of two envelope generators that operate on 2 channels at once, with a stereo tempo delay.

As usual, feed it clocks, or use as an insert effect, and finally stop drawing in controller 7 in your sequencer or triggering gates off your 909\'s rimshot!

Update (v2.0)

I didn't want to do this update, because I feel it detracts from the simplicity of Kitten Gate, but here it is because a couple of people asked for it. I haven't put any time into new snapshots.


New pattern generators let you edit patterns using buttons after using the matrix interface.

Multimode filter section with LFO (inc stereo phase), seperate envelope (and trigger).

v2.1 changed signal path from amp --> filter to filter -->amp, fixed lfo phase circuit.

This processor is to be used as an inline effect.

Have used this live with a noisy input. The shaped sounds that emerge are very useful. Thank you.

This is really good. I use quite a lot of gating effects in my stuff , but have always found their construction quite a fearsome challenge - especially avoiding irritating clicks and getting the envelopes to work effectively. Your ensemble seems to get over both of those problems with some really clever programming. Brilliant! The filter section is also terrific.

I made a second post last night but must have goofed somehow. I'm running XP.

congratulations: you win the grand prize in uncovering deep reaktor 4 bugs ... when i open your ensemble, not only does reaktor crash, my entire system crashes (win 98) and must be rebooted! ;-) rachMiel
