Free Dronebox ensemble for Native Instruments Reaktor  13th November 2013

Bronto Scorpio has released Dronebox, a free ensemble for Native Instruments Reaktor.

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 this ensemble.

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 for it.
