1. Hi everyone,

    Apple just released Logic Pro 10.5 for MacOS 10.15. We found out that Massive X, Crush Pack, Mod Pack, Replika, and Replika XT will crash.

    Our teams are currently working on a fix, and we hope to have this out to you as soon as we can!

    Best wishes, 
    The NI Team

    I guess it's the same or similar thing as in maschine, but it would be interesting to know how it behaves, are wrong notes not shown in piano roll or are they forced to next right notes if I painted a sequence before with, after turning scale knob, then wrong notes
    Really important for people like me who have no real clue about notes and scales

    Yes, selecting a specific scale and key with the SCALE and KEY knobs will cause any existing notes to move to the nearest notes contained in that scale and you will see that happening in real-time in the piano roll area. The knobs can be modulated in real-time and of course are non-destructive so you can experiment with different keys and scales and all notes will stay within the selected scale no matter how much you twist and flip the sequence with modulation.

    If a scale is selected and you enter or edit notes then the notes will snap to the closest note of the scale as expected.

    In this example the scale knob is set to a major scale and so all the notes snap to that scale as they are being modulated by the LFO in real-time —>



    I’ll try to post a video demonstrating the scale function ASAP..

    Wow...
    I am not really a modular guy but this alone might get me to buy the bundle just to experiment with the Piano Roll module. Maschine's PR is stuck in 80's...

    We are running a 25% OFF sale on all packs and bundles on the toybox site for the next 2 weeks. Just enter SPRING2020 when purchasing -->

    toyboxaudio.com

    We have been busy finishing off the V1.1 update for the Synth Bundle (free for existing users). The update will include fixes, some new blocks, plus a new GUI for the brilliant Piano Roll block (teaser below).

    Email me via the website if you have the pack and would like to try the V1.1 beta.

    I built a simple guitar-synth rack, the rack uses only blocks from the toybox Free Pack, download it here:

    https://www.native-instruments.com/en/reaktor-community/reaktor-user-library/entry/show/13429/

    I'm running a competition: first three people to post a video of themselves jamming through the rack (on guitar, bass, violin or whatever instrument you can get to work with it) will get a free copy of the toybox Synth Bundle. Use the tag #toyboxguitarsynth

    (Also a reminder that the toybox spring sale is still running! For 25% discount on packs and bundles enter SPRING2020 at the checkout.)

    Plus check out this short demo showing how to build a basic synth:

    Just to let you know we have just released a major update to the toybox Synth Bundle for Reaktor Blocks.

    New features include a completely revamped GUI for the Piano Roll, Improved polyphonic connections and 20 New Blocks.

    Here's a basic demonstration of the new Piano Roll block:



    We are also running a 25% sale with the code SPRING2020 at https://www.toyboxaudio.com

    Stay well! :)

    David

    The toybox Synth Bundle V1.1 update available now!

    GUI improvements - including a completely revamped GUI for the Piano Roll blocks with new features and improved workflow. Plus GUI improvements to many of the other blocks in the bundle.

    Improved polyphonic connections - any type of output, polyphonic or monophonic can now be connected to any type of input. A polyphonic output can even be connected to combinations of polyphonic and monophonic inputs simultaneously.

    20 New Blocks, including:
    • Real Verb - A high quality, realistic reverb effect with a choice of early reflection patterns. The 'DIFF' (diffusion) control sets the smoothness and density of the tail. There are also controls to reduce sample rate, bit depth and increase saturation for gritty, vintage digital reverb effects.
    • Box Verb - A reverb effect used to simulate boxes, containers and small spaces.
    • Wavetable (Polyphonic) - A polyphonic wavetable based oscillator. The wavetables can be scanned in 2 dimensions across a 16 by 16 grid with many unique ways of twisting and warping the waveforms.
    • Chord Bank (Polyphonic) - A block that stores a bank of 120 chords (each with up to 6 notes). The chords can be selected using the PITCH input or triggered using the PITCH and GATE inputs together.
    • Clock Multiplier - A 4 channel clock multiplier. The block automatically inserts a number of clocks in between each clock arriving at the inputs, for each channel. Perfect for creating complex polyrhythmic patterns from a simple clock input.
    • Gate Probability - Thins out gates arriving at the gate inputs. The probability of gates being passed by each channel is set by value of the PROBABILITY knobs in %. The block operates in 4 modes:
      • MODE 1 = Each channel operates independently.
      • MODE 2 = Channel 1 is sent to either output 1 or 2, channel 3 is sent to either output 3 or 4.
      • MODE 3 = Channels 1, 2 & 3 are cascaded (channel 1 is sent to either output 1 or feeds channel 2, channel 2 is sent to either output 2 or feeds channel 3), channel 4 is independent.
      • MODE 4 = Channels 1, 2, 3 & 4 are cascaded.
    • Quantize - Quantizes the input signal by the value of the STEPS knob.
    • Sequential Switch - An 8 input, 8 output switch. The connections between input 1 and the 8 outputs or between the 8 inputs and output 1 are switched using a sequencer. The position of the sequencer is incremented by gates received by the GATE input. (Note: this block will also be added to the upcoming V1.2 Free Pack update.) This is an extremely versatile and powerful block that can be used in may ways to combine, split and splice gate and audio signals.
    • Split - Splits incoming notes between 3 sets of pitch and gate outputs using 3 different modes: NOTE, VELOCITY & MIX.
    • Split (Polyphonic) - Splits incoming polyphonic notes between 3 sets of pitch and gate outputs.
    • Transpose (Polyphonic) - Transposes polyphonic pitch signals. A scale button applies 'autotune' style pitch snapping to the output.
    • Voice Split - Each voice of the polyphonic input is sent to a different monophonic output.
    • Keyboard - A dual keyboard display that can also be used to trigger or perform notes with the mouse.
    • MIDI Out (Polyphonic) - Converts polyphonic pitch and gate signals to MIDI notes and also offers four channels of MIDI CC output.
    • Mono Note Merge (Polyphonic) - Merges mono pitch and gate signals together and outputs the merged notes to a pair of polyphonic pitch and gate ports. Click on the LEDs to mute each channel.
    • Mutes X8 - A bank of 8 mute buttons.
    • Note Delay (Polyphonic) - Delays the polyphonic signals arriving at the 'Pitch' and 'Gate' inputs. The block has controls for transposing the pitch of the delayed notes and snapping the pitches to a scale.
    • Note In (Polyphonic) - A polyphonic MIDI input block.
    • Gate Merge - Merges gate signals together. If a gate signal is already positive at one port when a new gate arrives at another port then the output will momentarily drop to zero triggering a fresh gate at the output. Includes a new SUM mode, when enabled the gates are added together rather than merged resulting in a higher output when multiple gates arrive at the same time.
    + Many small improvements and bug fixes

    If anyone is interested I'll be doing a livestream tomorrow, 15th April at 5pm GMT (6pm London, 7pm Europe, 1pm New York. I will probably be building a Reaktor Block from scratch and then maybe show some Blocks patching ideas.

    Tune in here: http://youtube.com/c/toyboxaudio
