an r4-ized version of tickTock, a sonic toy you can use to create the sounds of intricate alien clock mechanisms.

i use it to lay down drum tracks for my webernian pop tunes, but that's just me ... ;-)

Very nice,... i was looking for that sound wich reminds me on TokTok#2 from AcidOrange. The Cover was a chinese smiley,... I always wanted to make a song like that 15 min long Masterwork, with that vietnamese sound world. Now i have a tool for it . TY!

Brilliant! Laying awake in the night for 12 years until finding this to be the solution for an unfinished song without lyrics. Thanks. :-)

Mr Hopper, can I interest you in a gold plated tickTock? If you buy it right now, I'll throw in a kazoo, a Paraguayan kettle drum and a used wah-wah pedal. Seriously, though, I know what you mean... this is another great rachMielian contraption!

Just a short word to say that it was this thing that first really attracted me to the Reaktor programme. I remember thinking ‘ what is it?’. One doesn’t have to give it a name, obviously, but if I asked myself again, I would say it’s a highly individual creation from a very talented artist that doesn’t really fit into any bracket at all. All I can hear is what it ISN’T ` anything to do with: ie, ’flexible’ synths, brand synth simulatations or drum machines that many builders aspire to,. It’s not from that culture at all, more the non-commercial contemporary music tradition (if you know what I mean) than anything else. That why I love it. No monkey in a music shop would ever try to sell you Tick Tock.

That's right, Phil, this is one of the all time classic Rachmiel compositions in my humble, and up there with the greatest Reaktor ensembles! Such a simple idea yields bizarre of kilter rhythms, charming and chiming their way into your jolly-fray like a spokereena. Created in a happier time before the dreaded FM ID reared to the surface, tempest-like. :-)
