Toolset for advanced serialization and iteration
I'm excited to announce the release of a long and carefully developed project from one of our most talented Reaktor builders, Max Zagler. I would like to share a new set of tools with all of you that was designed to allow the management of complex arrays of data, like the data you need to control the new Modal Bank and Sine Bank modules.
We call this tool set the "Partials Framework", but besides Additive and Modal Synthesis it can be used for many more applications to handle a large number of similar objects, e.g.: arrays of display or control elements, FFT, complex filters, multi-segment waveforms or shapes, multi-breakpoint envelopes.
The main purpose of the framework is the serialization and serial processing of data. It supports multiplexing, a way for a single wire in Reaktor to carry the event signals for many sources and destinations. This largely simplifies the building of complex structures.
The framework also opens a simple way to program loops (iterations) in Reaktor Core. Serialization and iterations are the basis for efficient streaming of large numbers of events in Reaktor. In addition you will find macros for correct initialization, thread-safeness and tools for debugging.
This framework is not for beginners. However everything is well documented by Max with fun and colorful illustrations. Please don't be afraid to put in the effort to learn this tool set.
