The main inspiration for this
ensemble were those awesome demos of modular synths
you often find on the internet. When watching those
videos I'm often thinking "Don't ever turn a knob
again! That's the best sound ever!" *Guy in the
video turns a knob* "Wait! That's even better! Now
definitely never turn a knob again!".
I tried to capture this feeling with
It comes with a bunch of presets,
but it's really meant to be tweeked and explored.
The whole thing can be a bit
unpredictable, as there is a lot of feedback going
on, but that's part of the fun!
Many of the controls are somewhat
cryptic, but you'll eventually get a feeling for
each of them.
I tried to include as few controls
as possible, each control really does something. I
also didn't add a whole bunch of effects, to keep
the ensemble focused.
The "Chaos" control is something
special, as it feeds back signals from certain
points back into other points. When turned up, it
uses a part of the output from the third shifter to
calculate the sub oscillator for example. I suggest
to keep this control down while exploring, and
turning it up once you found a cool sound to get all
kinds of cool effects.
I'll add audio and video demos to
this page later and I'll upload the ensemble to the
user library in a few days.
I hope some of you will have some
fun with this ensemble!
This ensemble was made using Reaktor
5.8 by the way, so you don't need the latest update
