This is a tutorial on using a few simple LFOs and a clock oscillator to gate an audio stream, creating semi-random and interesting percussive effects. Have fun with it - it won't compose classical music for you but I hope it will liven up your music and teach you a few things about Reaktor. Remember, you have to noodle before you can fugue.

Ensemble and PDF included in zip.

I guess documents like this are just the best to be found in the userlibrary for all those people like me who like many ensembles here but never get something convincing done themselves. Thank you so much!
