Husserl Sapphire Metasequencer

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.

Nietzsche Spectral Delay

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.

Godel 5 Arpeggiator

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.

Hobbes 5

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.

youtube

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.
