Beat LFO + Auto XF (for Blocks and Bitwig 2.x)
Pattern controlled synced LFO/EG Hybrid
NOTE: this doesn`t produce any Audio (tough it does, but you would recognize it as DC-Offset and see your Speakers poppin out). it is a rhythmical swiss knife modulation-source for a lot of different jobs.
-deactivated the envelope follower in bitwigs audiomod for full quality
- Added a Audio Selector for routing all (CV)-Outputs to the Audio Out of Reaktor. So you can use it in Bitwig as Modulator
- Bitwig 2.0 Project file included with example
Major Update 1.0 with lots of new features.
make shure to visit the new Panel B features.
more infos: see below
This is not an official Block, but it fits nice between blocks, can modulate blocks in audioquality and important parameters can be modulated by Blocks and Bitwig Modulators. There is no typical Block-smoothing going on.
you can find some help and how to use it in Bitwig in the comments!
This device generates a curve (touch the curve display!) which is temposynced to the gate-sequencer.
The patterns of the gate sequencer can be sequenced by the pattern-sequencer just below (link-option). The gate is modulating the output-"Volume" of the curve.
In the second window you can find the curve and another sequencer called "swing-sequencer" which is modulating the phase of the curve (which results in a swing-like behaviour, up to reverse sounding effects. depends on use).
-the swing sequencer can be linked to the gate sequencer.
-everything is saved in snapshots.
-a remix function for the sequencer
-smoothing knobs for seq-patterns and main-output
-extra "CV-Out" for the Sequencers, so you can use them for Blocks too
-as long as the swing sequencer resolution is linked to the gate-seq it follows the tempi-jumps and should not produce any glitches. But a hard attack, if the Phase is at 0°.
-raise some swing sequencer steps completely for reverse envelope effects
-It works really good as percussive envelope, connect the main out of BeatLFO to a VCA and apply some gating to simple noise. Please do this while antoher drumloop is running.
-unlinking the swing-patterns resolution will cause glitches, stair effects etc
-dotted mode is way more stable to the curve than the triplet mode. the triplet is cutting/jumping sometimes. maybe a bug, but i like it.
-try modulating Acid Filters Cutoff and everything else
- take 2 Drumloops, or 2 Synth, or 2 even complete songs and crossfade / remix them live in a rhythmical consese
Thanks to Andre Goc and everybody else, who worked on the "Silverbird Live" Ensemble and previous Versions. The Sequencer was taken from there and slightly modified.
Thanks to Jan Gabler, the Curve was taken from his Ensemble "Beat Controlled Shaper".
Thanks to Josh Hinden, the beautiful Scope was taken from his Ensemble "Wave Scope".
And Thanks to Herwig Krass for his Song Position Module and Help
This is my first Instrument/Ensemble. i am completly new to reaktor (some weeks) and had a lot to lern. i will try to manage the things better next time...
Thanks to everybody who is helping in the Forum. YOU ARE AWESOME.
to the users: would be nice to see some snapshot banks for this :)
-added lots of tooltips
-some new Snapshots
-added a picture for Instrument Browser
New Major Featrue in 1.0: Live Remix Crossfader
-added a Autocrossfade Mix-Matrix on Panel B:
-manual Crossfading, can be treated in several ways with the outputs of Gate-pattern, Swing-pattern and BeatLFO
-Invert and mode switches are quantised to the next step and shouldn`t produce any glitches in live situations!
-added 3 extra CV outputs: XF Main Out (optimised for Crossfaders, or just another modsource for everything), XF Left VCA and XF Right VCA (for selfbuilding crossfaders, Sidechaining, or more modsources)
-Linear/Parabolic mode for VCA outputs
-added a new input to modulate the crossfader externally (with optical feedback)
-the main crossfade got it`s own scope
-deactivating the XF modulations doesn`t save any CPU (no clicks on switching -> Live use)
