Reaktor 5 or lower
Instrument Sampler


Frame is a simple Reaktor sampler I created to implement a type of freeform looping and creative sampling I felt was missing from most other software samplers on the market. Frame allows you to define a window of sound and sweep it across the sample as it plays without glitching or popping.

The Beauty of this ensemble is its simplicity, load into Ableton and use the max LFO device to move both the sample size and position and with the right loop loaded you can get stunning results. Thanks Peter

This is more than amazing, so many products in the market can not do that, or maybe can but surely not in this simply and effective way. I thank you a lot. Please keep em coming

Wonderful ensemble. So many of the granular instruments sound good, but are massively complicated. This produces excellent, usable sounds from a place of simplicity. Thanks!

Mr. Dines this is E X A C T L Y what I have wanted out of a sampler! From the EXS24 to Skanner, nothing has come close to this. Thank you sir!

Super update Peter! Got lost exploring the possibilities for an entire day and only felt like grazed the surface of this fantastic tool ;-) Certainly has me looking forward also to my next session with it's bigger brother 'Loupe 2'.

Thanks you, Peter! A very useful, clean, simple to understand interface, easy to use and a good starting point to think about gettin' loupe2 for some really enhanced mangling and slicing. ;) But Frame3 already is for sure a perfect bred&butter-tool you can always have a use for.
