Reaktor 6
Instrument Sequencer

DESCRIPTION

V2.8.2 (R6.2.2)
fixes
Retrigring random on start CV seq’s now behaves
CVb2 now has v1-48 mod out
CV seq’s clock mod resets fixed
Fixed cv’seq not catching first beat.
fixed repeated note offs from seq dub
structural pruning
Fixed P1+2’s note display
fixed P1+P2’s gate setting, now works as expected
Adds
Added a Transpose switch to the seq’s to isolate from master transpose
added a follow on to next button on snap seq(for jamming)
Added counters for reRandomize, now counts how many times seq plays before randomise or if in clock reset mode how many clock resets till rnd
Added a Follow setting on the main seq Dub section,this allows per step probability,when off it just cycles 16 beats.
Redone the midi thru

Adds/changes - R6.1.1(R35)
Fixed broken dub mod on main seq
fixed broken odd pitch settings
replaced more old lables and the odd control for better ledgability + graphic tweaks
Some internal cpu saves
redone random clocks- more useful settings
Step variation is now contained with in start+length settings.
Switch seq triggering of master random now behaves properly
modulating dub%, fixed odd glitches + mod lfo has sync/free setting + inverse switch
Added a freeze flasher
fixed cv control of clock-all values now available.
added an master on/off for the 16 controllers
Some more panel sets

Additions/changes in V2.8
added a master reset that counts clock pulses(ala metropolis) also can be sent to other sections(lfo/cvSeq)
Added performance controls(master midi view B) the control both step length and step ratchets with a mode control to set the relationship between step length and no of ratchets- recommend setting up a midi controller for these.(there is now a midi in channel selector for this section)
Expanded control of random ranges,and a quantize setting that makes all randoms odd or even(step length and ratchets only)
Added a master randomise button that randomizes all the random settings for main seq,
Added a freeze button that isolates all random controls,leaving them at there last setting.
Midi chan out now has a no send over midi setting(Red cross)
a few graphics tweaks.
sub lfo for lfos now resets properly
V1—6 step variation expanded to V1-48
Set up a few panel sets.
Added a View A/B strip at the side for accessing A/B menu
A few bug fixes here and there.
Included a clean version- just vss2 no synths etc, no snapshots and no controller assignments.
Please report any problems

Just discovered a change in R6.1(R31).When trying to access the Rh mouse button menu to get view B,It now gives a macro menu.A quick fix is to select Inst - Vss2.7.4. View, make sure its set for view a and b, then change the Right border to 15 or larger.this will give you a blank bit on the right side,clicking here will give the correct menu(thanks paule)I will do this in the next update(metropolis style resets and performance controls)

Thanks! I've just discovered step-patterns can be actually sequenced with CVa1/CVb1/... :) I got the the retrigger idea after watching the Intellijel Metropolis demo on YB. Thanks again, I will try putting your recipe into action.
michael lancaster
2 years ago
Great to hear your delving into the functions.I think this will do what your after : Set length to 1,then assign a cv seq to start .Set the cv's clock to the same as main seq(remember to resart/resync reaktors clock after manual clock changes). Then set the step number you want on the cv sea's knobs and the step length setting will give you repeats of that step (1-32).You can sequence the main seq by using the snapseq. Hope this is what you are looking for.

Great stuff; a truly amazing sequencer! One question though: how can I retrigger a step of the main Sequencer (other than via P1/P2 modifier or Sequencer drawing table)? Apart from Ratchet, I would love to add "retrigger 1-32) modifier at a step 1-16 of the main Sequencer (view A). Also, is it possible to sequence P0 (main Sequencer) sequences via CV1a/CV1b.. ? Many thanks Michael!

Yes,it is a rewrite as to take ssv4.5 further was getting harder. the things you've learnt in ss will be directly transferable as it follows the same "logic" of operation and a touch easier on the eye!

Hi Michael, I have Reaktor 5.9.2, not 6 yet. I get an error when trying to open Vss2. Is 2.6.3 still available for download anywhere? Looks like that is the newest that still runs on the prior version of Reaktor.

This has breathed new life into my analog synths ! Thank you for your excellent work. The instructional videos are also very informative. Best Sequencer I have ever come across. I have been using Reaktor since V1 and this the most useful yet. A Block version would be remarkable. Can't even begin to keep up with all of the inspired work everyone is contributing right now. A deep thank you to everyone.

I found what what was wrong, the note in block needs to be set to ch intern and thats it working(thanks Sowari). I will still make block compatable outputs for connecting blocks directly.

The problems downloading the manual have now been fixed.Thanks neil your the first.
michael lancaster

I've just done a test.I had "assumed" that a note in block would do it,but it doesn't due to the way it treats note on and note offs. I have started a block version of vss monolite( a cut down version) A very basic but functioning block is available in this thread.I'm working on making the full vss. block compatable. https://www.native-instruments.com/forum/threads/6-step-version-of-seq-8.262737/ For a quick fix use the P+G outs,the gate will work patched direct, the pitch needs to be multiplied by 1/120, which will convert midi pitch to block pitch.

Further investigation has shown up some oddities when midi thru is on,I would advise that the Instrument Vss2.6.1 has nothing routed to it in the midi in internal menu.I will fix this in the next upload/update.
michael lancaster

ooh the forum has "corrected " my exact naming it should read i.e. Vss2.6.1 self. I had used the greater than symbol as in the menu,but thats not allowed seaminly.??!
michael lancaster
3 years ago
I've had a look into your problem,and the inst Vss2.6.1 is only connected to Ens-master-midi,It sounds like you've also got it connected to itself i.e.Vss2.6.1 this will give you the results you were experiencing,You should disconnect it from its self. Note this is for the midi internal settings for inst Vss2.6.1. If your still having problems let me know. ps the manuals getting there,keep getting sidetracked.
Rasmus Hoeberg

Nevermind i found out what the problem was! I might as well write my answer here so anyone as noobish as me can benefit if they run into the same problem. Pr. default the ensemble was setup to send midi internally back to seq1 which meant that while change the pitch of the step it also seemed to send a general pitch change message to itself. The problem was solved by changing the internal midi channel of seq1. Hope it makes sense.
Rasmus Hoeberg
3 years ago
This sequencer truly seems inspiring. I have one weird problem though. When i change the pitch on seq1 it seems to keep on transposing everything, which means the sequence keeps getting higher and higher or lower and lower pitched. Its a very cool feature but i would like to be able to switch it off. I would appreciate some help with it. It's probably just some silly button i haven't found yet.

Thank you for the positive remarks.I've just updated to R6 and initial tests don't show any new problems,There are some initial start oddities(when you first load up) but changing snapshot will sort them out.I continue to track em and fix em.I have made a good start to a full and comprehensive manual(got sidetracked by updates).not sure how long it will take as theres a lot to explain!

Wow, this is an absolute game changer of an ensemble, there are a lot of very capable sequencers in the User Library here, but this one is on a whole other level, the glide feature alone on the cv modulations I have been searching for for ages. This thing is just fantastic when hooked up internally to a synth like Monark or just routing cc's all over the place externally. I don't think you could ever exhaust all the possibilities on offer here, truly grateful for Michael sharing this masterpiece with us all for free!

Big thanx as usual, Sir Mike, for your nice new update :) In fact, I managed to catch main additions & changes without viewing your explicit youtube tutorials, but, sure, those videos also helped to understand some "hidden tricks" :) I just want to ask you for a little help/shortlist concerning the usage of all your numerous modulation routings/sends: I understand most of them for sure, but still there are some of them which don't look so obvious :)

@glyn - yes i missed the ratchet feature that i had in my previous seq(SS) just the ease of use rather than use the sub seqs to do the job(which is what they originally evolved from). @ALLAN WALKER-(sorry couldn't resist), I know what you mean, the screen is now jam packed with info.I like to see whats going on,with out using the mouse(trying to get away from that)thats why there are monitors for the hidden cv channels.I have thought about a graphics over haul-creating more space for the controls, Its horses for courses,some folk like the minimalist view. me i want to see at a glance and intend to start mapping things to more controllers,less mousing . -Anyway glad you are enjoying Vss and happy experiments mike

Hi Michael I'm afraid I don't use ableton live,so i can't test out your problem,I believe that ableton transmits internal midi on omni channel only,i saw some threads about it and possible work rounds some where on the reactor forum,although a live forum is perhaps a better bet. The VSS 2 does output on different midi channels.In logic i have set up a routing that assigns each chan out to a different inst.(full details available on req),you can also use bidule and rout the different midi ch to different plug ins. Even Reaktor itself makes internal midi chans omni.It's really restricting.
Michael Millerman
4 years ago
How do I route the various midi channels (say, p1 repeats to channel 3) to various distinct synths in ableton? Setting the channel in VSS to 3 doesn't seem to do anything, as I can only send everything at once through "midi from - reaktor" ableton routing, and it makes no difference what the midi channels are set to in VSS. Any help here would be appreciated. Thanks and thanks for the great work.

I've sussed how to make tutorial videos,so when I've got the latest version back in one piece I'll be doing those which should help. as to the program change, the blue dot next to snap switches that on and off,it will also switch off the internal as well.perhaps a switch for int. and Ext. is needed ? any other questions please ask or any mod ideas.

Very powerful! Not too intuitive, but given the flexibility, you did a good job. Some kind of manual would be nice. One problem I had: When I change a preset, it sends a midi program change which (sometimes) changes the program of the synth which is receiving the midi from Vss2.
