Reaktor 5 or lower


This is a another oddity from 1978, I didn't have much to go by so im sure it doesn't work exactly as it should - but still produces suitably ear splitting sound effects. I will probably update this again when i've found out the proper operation of the LFO and the mixer once i've modelled the Texas Instrument SN76477 sound chip more accurately.

My first hardware ever. My favorite ENS. Thank you.

Yes that would be a good idea to try and recreate the sound of the speaker, but first i'd be more interested in better emulating the TI sound chip. I know the switches are not the easiest to read but they look original - thats more important for me when trying to recreate something. The knobs are not like the original though. And yes indeed a nasty macro frame still lurks there - yuck!

The speaker could be simulated with EQ and distortion. Convolution might be easier, but this way is possible. I like the idea of this machine. The buttons are difficult to read and there is an unhidden macro to the top left that shouldn't be there. A nice start though, but I see room for improvement that I hope you take.

This is one of those things that would be extremely improved if Reaktor had a convolution processor. I am thinking 2 inch speaker, something crunchy.
