Reaktor 5 or lower
Effect Multi-Effect


Processed is designed for real-time use, to transform and beautify a live audio input (or pre-recorded samples) via processing, looping, pitch shifting and layering.

I created this ensemble to process my harp playing; to build thick, fluid, glitched and evolving walls of sound from a single, pure sound source. It sounds glitchy, due to the granular pitch shifting. I love it like that, if you cringe at the sound of digital artifacts, this ensemble might not be for you...

You just play a dry signal into it and out comes (hopefully) thick, lush sound. For me, it sounds best with slow melodic/harmonic sound sources, rather than rhythmic source material. That said, do whatever you want, this is the whole point of sharing this ensemble.

Has a switchable Stereo-Out mode for live use or 16-Outs mode for multitracking to your DAW.

Fully documented, 15-page PDF manual included.

v1.1 update - smoothing added to loopers to reduce clicks, tremolo made less woozy, 1.5 beat option added to loop lengths

10 years of on/off Reaktor tinkering has gone into this ensemble, plus my new album was created entirely with this ensemble.

I'd love to hear things you make with it, enjoy!

We should establish a design-prize for all the ens/isms presented in this club. I bet this contribution would be the award winning no. 1 for a long long time...:D I also listened to snippets of your music, Kris. Hats off! And concerning the vast possibilities of "processed": It will be a default installation in all the templates I use for my work. Thank you so much! And keep it harping down under...

@Nick > Sweet idea to put it on an FX send. That never even crossed my mind, I always use it as the sole instrument in my setup. This is exactly why the Reaktor User Library is so good. Sharing rules!

A thing of beauty. I just used this in Ableton (@Ryan Collings: replace the reverb on SEND A with Reaktor, via Plug-ins/VST/Reaktor 5/6 Effects then load Processed.ens) using a marimba sample. WOW. Trippy and hypnotic and very like a Steve Reich piece. Lovely work @Kris Keogh! Thank you.
