Instrument Sequencer

DESCRIPTION

Would have just posted a description of the idea if I hadn’t wound up doing so much tweaking and snap-saving in all three instruments here: Nanowave, including adjusted versions of my earlier posted snap banks, new patterns in the Monoliner sequencer, and new settings in the draw-your-own Automated LFO. But you could of course just do this yourself, as shown, and tweak up your own settings, saving yourself a 4Mb download; hadn’t realized Nano was so hefty!

Not only are there no wires here, all I did was insert these two new instruments into the Nanowave structure and close it. In the panel, I set the sequencer to INT MIDI/Nanowave, and chose Wave (the wave number in the set) and/or wave (the position slider) for the oscillators in the LFO’s drop-down Nanowave menu; too easy! No doubt you’ll think of other interesting connections that could be made...like adding another sequencer for the Pitch knob in Monoliner...etc.

Nonetheless, seems a good demonstration of how powerful and dramatic these effortless new wireless features of R5 can be. Nothing ground-breaking here, to be sure, but it feels to this ultra-naive user as if I just built my own new device from Reaktor Lego parts: just what I was hoping for!

Hope some others find the SOUNDS from this simple patch job as surprising, endless and apparently non-repeating (unless desired) as I have.

Note: Updated file resaved with panel on primary monitor, so it shouldn’t cause any further “where’s the panels?” problems.

it sounds like a screeching granny that smoked too much crack going down a road with too many speed bumps on it

First of all, this seemingly trivial ensemble is truly fantastic. With a bazillion presets, it generates more galooping rodent dance music than any standalone galooping rodent dance machine on the Lithuanian or Canadian markets. Second - BEWARE: The ens. file may have been saved with windows spread around on two monitors. If you can't find the panels (as I couldn't), then use the View / Cascade command to bring them back to the main monitor. If R5 just crashes when you load this ens., you need to temporarily disable the Option for "Restore Panels" etc. when loading an ensemble. (There is obviously a minor bug involved in this situation, which hopefully NI will take note of.) Anyway, great job, David. Thanks!

BTW, in case it isn’t immediately obvious, I suggest running this ensemble entirely from the snap panels for the 3 instruments for a while before you start adjusting panel controls; there are a LOT of permutations possible without touching a knob.
