Basically (and I accept it's no genius move) it is a library module volume control that has a mute button on it already. All I did was assign the mute button to respond to a C1 midi note.

How I use it:

1. I have a pre-saved Mixer Group with an instance of this on every slot and every pad already set on C1.
2. Anything I want to mute then gets routed to a slot on this group (be it single, multiple tracks or entire groups).
3. Create a new pattern on this group that is the length of how long you want to record for (or just create a clip in Arranger view).
4. Hit record and press the corresponding pads to mute the signal and again to unmute - this records as MIDI data which can then quantized, edited, deleted, moved etc).

That's it. Works on both software and M+. You can also use the volume on the module as a bonus to record fades. Both the Mute and Volume controls appear as Maschine control knobs as well.

tbh, I've no idea. It was made in a full version but I'm not sure of what makes something a "player" or "full" license only. I would have expected it it to work in Player as it is very basic. I'm afraid I can't say :(

so does this work with Reaktor Player or only with the full version of Reaktor. Loading the Reaktor Effect from my User Library I get the warning that Reaktor is in DEMO MODE and only available for 30 mins. I checked the comparison chart for Reaktor on the NI website and feature 'Save and recall snapshots and Ensembles' is only available for the full version of Reakor, but not the Reaktor Player. So it means it doesnt work for a pleb like me?

Forgot to say, it works best if you have the velocity FIXED on the hardware otherwise it may not always seem to respond depending upon how hard you hit the pad.
