Bundle of stuff
Bundle of FM/AM, Auralis engine thingie, Loop tool, Noise FX
Here is a little bundle of stuff (I always use the word "stuff" when I'm lazy and tired). I often feel I need to document the stuff I release, but this really stops me from releasing anything at all, as I'm just too damned lazy at the time to write such documentation. The stuff in this bundle has just been on my HD for a while, because when something is 99% finished, I start on something else. Important controls are (probably) documentet with tooltips, but there is no other documentation. The ensembles are released, as they say, "as is." Let's get to the stuff:
Effemm - That's right: FM, with a bit of AM thrown in. Nothing fancy, just a synth. Oh, it's got a little dust thing in there, and some cheap stereo thingie. I release it because I'm happy with some of the presets. There is a tuning thingie in there, but...err... I don't know what to say :o) Oh, it may be completely out of tune for the first few notes you play after you open it. It's a...feature.
Loopster - This is a very CPU friendly (drum or other) loop messing machine. Amongst other things, it can probably be used to create some squarepusherian drumloop, er, stuff. A little building hint: If you want to do event feedback in a sequencer, use a Frequency Divider - the N input is audio, so maybe that's why it works (see the Sequencer macro). NOTE! Select presets from the ensemble, creatively named "Ensemble". The presets are there to show some of what you can do. It's a pretty flexible little thingie. Thingie, thingie, thingie, thingie...thingie.
Ahrendees - This is one of Auralis' offsprings. I have spent a long time trying to use the Auralis engine to create an ens that is sufficiently better, but it has been a royal pain in the ass. None of the versions I made was good enough for me, but this one is a bit different, is useable, and has some potential. Again, I'm happy with some of the presets, so it's a go for release. Amongst other things, it can be used to create ambient-stuff-in-the-background type of sounds.
Noisetoy - Warning! WARNING! This is a very experimental ensemble which may or may not contain mines that could reveal themselves only to blow your head off! Well, at least give you a jolt of audio unpleasantries and crash Reaktor. I THINK I have done a thorough mine sweep, but you never know... There is, however, a very unpleasant noise when switching between a few of the presets. This ens is a result of random messing about, I guess. It can generate different types of noise effects, like vinyl crackle(!), wind, rain, and more weird stuff. It does not use any samples. You can also process audio through all the snaps, but please try the snaps named "Input" first. Nomber of voices must be at least 2 for this ens to work. I won't be held responsible if the world ends or some other bad stuff happens when you use this ensemble :-)
Long live the lovely Reaktor community!
