drum synth machine

(35 Votes)
1.6 (Updated 7 years ago)
June 24, 2013
Reaktor 5 or lower
Instrument Sequencer


The idea is to have a synth engine hidden behind a simple front panel, to make presets and use them like a regular drum machine.
Panel B opens the complete synth of each part.

The sequencer is a modified version of martin brinkmanns dsq32-3, with some custom knobs and a simple humanize function.
You can set the velocity for each step in 4 steps.

V 1.6: changed the FX-send routing, now everything is in stereo and you can pan between original and wet signal to easily mix in FX in row without changing the overall amplitude... and fixed the step meter, which wasn't displaying correctly

thanks for the comments! a better solution for the step meter is to add 1 to the value it's receiving. the values it receives range from 0-31, if you add 1 it's displaying correctly. didn't pay attention to this, aybe i will make another update soon :)

Like the sounds this makes,the purple step meter at the bottom doesn't do the last beat,If you change your meter max/min to 0-30 that seams to make it work,not sure why as that doesn't make sence . thanks mike

sorry, uploaded it now with embedded sample. The samples are for the wavetable of oscillator 3. It is my AKWF-oscillator, but i left only 400 waveforms in it to not slow reaktor down, so only the first for banks work. You can replace it with the Sample Loop from my AKWF upload to get all 3500+ waveforms, but it will slow reaktor down, I was told that this will be fied with the next update though.

...and the controls on panel A are mapped to a bcr2000 standard preset 1

The first four modules are triggered by C1, D1, E1, F1 and the sequencer, the MeloDy module can be played from G1 and upwards and is not triggered by the sequencer.
