An FM Drum Machine

Reaktor 6


Four part FM drum synth and sequencer. Each sequencer has one gate track plus a velocity track and two assignable tracks. The synth engine is a simple dual operator FM synth with noise but can be brought to life with the sequences and two LFOs. I reckon some of the techno heads could get some bangers out of this.

Wish I could trigger this on/off with a midi note.

Great news Colin, adding random functions to this beast would be awesome.

@Ticco Ross Had a look and the randomisation IS working. It's just that it turns out there's a bunch of parameters that can be set so the synth makes no noise or the sequencer doesn't send gates, or sends them infrequently........ I will have to look at taking certain things out of the randomisation to solve this

@Ticco Ross Not entirely sure, its not something I use often so didn't think to check. Will have a look into it. Maybe it's to do with using stacked macros?

Great drumbox Colin, do you know why randomize snapshot is not working?
