Yofiel's family of premiere ensembles are designed for professionals and hobbyists seeking the most powerful and flexible instruments available.
The most powerful step sequencer ever made, Husserl includes 16 polyphonic 32-step sequencers that can intermodulate and trigger each other in multiple ways. Each of the 16 32-step sequencer channels can output notes, triggers, and meta-modulation values. Each channel has bar sequencers that can change the pitch, velocity, note duration, and tempo in different patterns too. The channels can all be triggered by clock, MIDI notes, and/or other sequencers to play at different clock rates, or to step through sequences upon each trigger, or to layer over each other in fugue mode. Each channel can receive MIDI control from separate MIDI channels and output MIDI notes and/or MIDI controller values to any combination of the 16 output channels. Basic features include different clock rates, multiple trigger modes, sequencing modes, pitch maps, note filters, and trigger sequencers for each of the 16 channels. Channel components can be copied and pasted between different channels. Advanced features include custom pitch remapping, I/O crossbar, and jitter, for unique and more realistic play. A song mode allows sequence chains to be built up by sequencing snapshots after any number of bars.
Here is a rough video demo, but I do intend to provide something better. The audio latency is over 1 second, so its more just a guideline. And I haven't touched the Reaktor version of Husserl since 2009, so please excuse my frequent hesitations. This demo shows the ensemble starting up, the various panels, clicking and dragging on the tables to set up a new sequence, changing the keymap, setting one sequence to modulate another, modifies various other things, runs some songs (sequences of snapshots that auto-advance to the next snapshot after the set number of bars), shows some demo snaps, shows how Midi input can trigger fugues, layers, transpositions, etc. (you can't see the keyboard input here), and ends with a demo song.

This unusual audio effect has been growing in popularity over the last decade, It splits incoming audio into any number of frequency bands, then applies a filtered stereo delay to each band. Between 2 and 32 frequency band splits can be set and stored with a snapshot. The level, delay time, and output pan can be set and modulated separately for each band. A compact user interface permits easy and rapid setting of all band and modulation parameters. The instrument includes an equalizer, additional feedback delay, and limiter for the two output channels.
Again, this is a rough demo, as I need to get a new screen video recorder. My current one introduces over a second audio latency, so the audio sync is off by several bars. That aside, this video starts by opening the ensemble with Hume synth as source and demonstrates spectral flanging first. You will notice the flanging fading in and out after changing the effect's MIX slider on the on the instrument's right side. Then this video shows a few other effects, including spectral pan with LFO modulation, which is really striking. Then it opens spectral delay with a drum synth. You'll see lots of strange and amazing possibilities, especially with synced LFO. It concludes by showing the spectral delay instrument in an otherwise empty ensemble, ready for you to play with. Due to online bandwidth limitations, some of the subtleties are lost, but I overdid the effect in places to make it more obvious.

The Godel super arpeggiator excels at creating beautiful melodies because it is not just a one simple arpeggiator, but a fully polyphonic multi-arpeggiator with automatic chord generation and pitch remapping. The following diagram summarizes the main signal flow for clocks and pitch/gate events.
This video shows a few of Godel 5's capabilities

4. Electric Analog
The Electric metamusic ensemble is a multifunction, polyphonic analog emulation synthesizer providing professional-quality presets and comprehensive functionality in a clean, simple, and compact design.
Electric was developed in conjunction with Pascal Santoni, and for this reason, reductions in its cost cannot be offered via software bundles. For more information, see:
This is an initial port of the Synthcore 5D filter to Reaktor 6, in preparation for the update to Hobbes Premiere. Cutoff, resonance, filter poles, and saturation variations are adjusted into unity-gain range by table compensation. The display so far shows the variations in the first three dimensions. The display of all five dimensions, and adding filter drive, will take a little more time.
Hobbes will feature zoomable 2D touch panels for extra-fine control of oscillator and filter mixes. The original version of Hobbes 'Leviathan,' was designed in Reaktor 3, and for a long time was in the top 10 most popular ensembles for Reaktor. Hobbes is being redesigned for Reaktor 6.

Reaktor 5 Legacy Bundles
These files were gathered in response to user request.
5.1. Legacy Bundle 1
these designs have been verified to work in Reaktor 6.
5.1.1. Hegel 2 Modular WorkbenchFirst published in 2002 and completed in February 2005, this ensemble is a production-quality modular workbench for real-time performance, complex sequences, and audio exploration. It contains dozens of full-featured units, essentially cramming three complete polyphonic synthesizers into one instrument. An extremely flexible design provides access to virtually every audio and event modulation possible. Even so, the control panel is small enough to display completely, even on small 1024x768 monitors.A manual is available inside the download, in PDF, and a full description is availableIn this topic.
5.1.2. HumeHume provides a completely unique system for generating gorgeous note sweeps and subtly shifting tones. It can play notes or sequences. The sequencer is an early form of Godel. Medusa V2 1.2 by Jukka Kääriäinen impleemnts the vecotr mixer, and is available in theReaktor User Library.
5.1.3. Lenin MetamodularFor more information and a demonstration video, seethe Hume documentation.
Completed in 2004, Lenin is a superset of all the functionality of the free metamusic modular ensembles providing a complete modular system that you can played both via MIDI and by its internal sequencers (or both at the same time, if desired). Essentially it contains three complete multitimbral synths in one instrument, all the components of which can linked in pretty well any way imaginable.
For the online manual, please see:
Legacy Bundle 2
Contains kafka, kant, keyboard, marx, wittgenstein, and zeno. These designs have not yet been verified for R6 operation, but if you need these designs for your music and find any problems, I will fix them. As they are old designs, debugging them for the current version of Reaktor is extensive, so this explains the rather high price.

I prefer to see problems myself on your machine, for which I use Skype, because it is on all platforms and supports screen sharing, audio, video, and text messages.For all support inquiries, please make sure you haveregistered on my site first, thenContact Us with your Skype username.
Obtaining Skype: If you do not have Skype, please install it before contacting me. It is available for all devices on theSkype download page.
Thank you for your interest in Yofiel's metamusic. I hope you enjoy our software.
