DESCRIPTION

feed it an audio file or map (set up as described in the info popup), click on randoMize, sit back, listen ... you know the drill. ;-)

here are a few maps set up correctly for rachToy 3 (too large to upload here):

Interesting, though the control freak in me wants, well, control...

Just a few suggestions for this great synth... Instead of an assignable BPM can it detect from the host/reaktor bpm? This'd sort of allow it to sync up to a host at least... Could it detect the loaded sample bpm and pitch accordingly? Thanks though, this beast rocks!

Rick, this one's a peanut-butter/bannanna Smoothie :D Thanks again, dig the 'B' side!

After playing with some more maps and now that I know about the B view, I'm loving this even more. Thanks again, Rick!

I guess I don't see too well on my 1200 X 1600. Now I can see where you're supposed to load the map files outside of the structure. I must've been distracted by the XY control.

You got me! I wrote before checking out the ensemble. You did just that! Very nice, and thanks. There were a few ... rachToy1, Cloud chamber, The Phantom without many controls, but as I go back to most of your older ensembles, there are lots of control. More than I remembered. Thanks again for all your great work.

Rick, I view these wonderful ensembles you make [the ones with mostly random controls] as little compositions. I've taken to just listening them instead of actual songs from time to time. It's very mesmerizing and relaxing. But sometimes, I'd like to use them as instruments, as opposed to random-play music boxes. Any chance of having a "B" view with some more user controls?

Thanks, Rick! What a swell guy! As an added benefit, it's now also easier to see where to load your additional maps.

>> Thomas Weber: I find this creation interesting and very musical. I appreciate and enjoy your work, Rick. I question the practice of deliberately obscuring the structure layouts, though. I wonder if this is contrary to the spirit of this library. I think the practice might be more appropriate if this were a for-fee download site. If the intent is to keep people from ripping off your ideas, it really isn\'t going to stop someone intent on doing so. For the rest of us who simply want to learn, it\'s irritating to have to unscramble the layout. I get the feeling that you consider viewing the structure as an invasion of your privacy or intellectual property. However, I believe that the nature of Reaktor users is to be interested in construction of the innards. You have to expect Reaktor people to want to know the structure. My opinions could be in the minority and I am interested in what others think. Thanks in any case for the download, Rick. > THOMAS, ET AL: THE ONLY ENSEMBLES I OBSCURE MY SOURCE CODE IN ARE THE RACHTOYS. I DECIDED TO DO IT BECAUSE I WANTED TO EMPHASIZE THE MUSIC OVER THE PROGRAMMING. BUT I SEE YOUR POINT; EVERYONE WANTS TO LEARN FROM EVERYONE ELSE, WHICH IS ONE OF THE GREAT THINGS ABOUT REAKTOR AND THIS USER LIBRARY. I TOOK YOUR COMMENT TO HEART AND REPOSTED RACHTOY 3 WITH ITS SOURCE CODE UNSCRAMBLED. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS (ABOUT HOW I HANDLE VOICES, FOR EXAMPLE), I'LL HAPPILY ANSWER. RICK
