Husserl Manual

Husserl is a multifunction, polyphonic step sequencer that provides more possibilities in a single, integrated instrument than available anywhere else. Built as a Reaktor 5.0 ensemble, Husserl provides the same power as a modular system in a unified instrument. Sequences have many different trigger modes, can modulates each other in every way possible, and can respond to user interaction in any way possible.

For a complete introduction, seeHusserl Sapphire for Reaktor.

Each sequencer channel has its own pattern panel with 16 steps, each of which can have separate pitch, velocity, and note duration. The controls to the left of the tables set the base values for all steps. The pitch table transposes pitch by semitones, and the other tables scale the default value.

Each channel has an additional bar sequencer. When enabled, the bar sequencer advances each time the pattern cycles past its last step. This allows the pattern (or 'phrase') to modify itself on each cycle.

The bar sequencer can change the pitch, velocity, duration, and tempo for each cycle of the pattern sequencer. Each step in the bar sequencer can also repeat.

Each sequencer channel has its own step filter (also called a beat filter). In normal operation, the step filter stops notes from being played when triggers are received from the trigger section. When so configured, the step filter can instead control which notes are passed through the note filter.

Each sequencer channel has its own note filter panel. Pitch and velocity filters can thin dense trigger clusters, or restrict the range of notes that trigger a particular sequencer channel (for example, to implement keyboard splits).

The actual controls change depending on whether the channel is set to filter, clip, wrap, mirror, translate, or shape pitch and velocity data. The following picture shows a filter which has been selected to translate pitch output.

In the A panels, each sequencer channel has its own matrix panel. The matrix provides pitch (P), Velocity (Vel) and Duration (Dur) modulation from other sequencers, as well as triggers (TRG) if the sequencer channel trigger TYPE is MATRIX (see the Trigger help for information on trigger TYPE).

The following picture shows the matrix for sequencer channel 1; the first row is empty, because the sequencer channel modulates itself via the bar sequencer, not the modulation matrix. In this example, channels 2, 3, 5, and 7 are triggers for sequencer 1. Of the trigger channels, only channel 3 modulates channel 1's pitch; channel 6 also modulates channel 1's pitch, but does not trigger it.

Each sequencer channel has its own record panel. You can use the step recorder to input a sequence into a channel from the instrument's own mouse keyboard, from the computer QWERTY keyboard, or from an external MIDI keyboard (the channel must be configured to receive the note input, via the setup panel).

Each sequencer channel has its own controller panel. The panel lets each channel send MIDI controller messages, MIDI pitch bend, MIDI channel aftertouch, or Reaktor SEND values to other instruments. In most cases, you would mute the note output from the channels, although you can also send a note and a controller value from the same channel simultaneously. The controller modulatoins may optionally be smoothed.

In the A panel set, each sequencer channel has a strip of output pins at its lowest left. These are copies of the full MIDI output matrix pins for the currently displayed sequencer channel. Changes to a sequencer channel in the A panelset appear immediately in the big output matrix in the B panelset, and vice versa.

The B panelset lets you view and edit settings for all channels at once. It also includes preferences and configuration panels. On the left side of all panels in the B Panelset are some shared controls, available in all B panels. At the top left, there is the selection list to choose which B panel to show in the right-hand area.

This is a simpler early version of the Husserl architecture, with the table display rendered entirely in core logic.It is freely available as a component in the Lenin design. If you've got Reaktor, have a look inside. It's much, much simpler than Husserl, but you're probably in for quite a bit of a shock if you believe this is a straightforward thing to build...
