1. Reaktor Rhythm 2

 
Reaktor Rhythm 2
 

Cycles & Spots present the follow up to Rhythm, a percussion instrument for Native Instruments’ Reaktor.

800 fresh new loops are integrated in this version which also offers extended functionality. 8 sample players can be separately manipulated in loop range (so polyrhythms can be made), start, frequency, playback modes & speeds.

Rhythm 2 also let’s you now use a 4 band equalizer and apply 4 effects for each player separately.

These effects are:

  • Reverb
  • Delay
  • Tremolo (panner)
  • Phaser

Simple inspirations and complex percussive structures can be easily made from experimental material up to full House Music based beats.

MAIN FEATURES

  • 1 Instrument For NI Reaktor
  • 800 Wav Loops Integrated
  • 50 Presets / Snapshots

Snapshots (presets) can be triggered via MIDI input and like this bigger structures (song mode) can be crafted.

50 snapshots are integrated. Samples vary from top loops, kicks, traditional percussion, 808s, kitchen recordings to even full beats.

The instrument features also separate mono outputs for each sampler for those who prefer this over the in-built effects.


2. Reaktor BeatLab

3. Hexcel

By: ADSR
 
Hexcel
 
Hexcel is a generative MIDI sequencer based upon the harmonic table, specifically designed for creating semi-random patterns based upon user input.

The user has direct control of the amount of randomness in any given sequence. Hexcel can work with any synth that accepts MIDI input.

The main part of Hexcel’s interface consists of a hexagonal grid, using the harmonic table. Each cell within the grid can be set to one of several functionalities.

The function of a cell is determined by it’s color:

Green cells generate ‘active nodes’ in one of several ways – either upon starting the MIDI clock, or at a user-specified tempo, or triggered directly by the user pressing a button. Active nodes are generated with a direction, and they travel across the hexagonal grid in that direction.

Yellow cells are used to trigger MIDI notes. Each cell has a MIDI note that it is associated with, and that note will play whenever an active node comes into contact with a cell that has been set to yellow.

Orange cells are used to reverse the direction of any active node that crosses it.

Red cells delete any active node that comes into contact with it.

Grey nodes can be used to re-direct active nodes in a randomized fashion. Each cell has 6 buttons surrounding it – these can be turned on or off by clicking on the outer region of the hexagon. A grey cell with all of it’s buttons turned off will do nothing. However, if one or more buttons is turned on, any active node will choose one of those buttons at random and move in that direction. These are therefore quite versatile as they can be used to automatically re-direct any active node into a desired direction (by only turning on one of the buttons) or into a completely randomized direction (by turning on all 6 buttons).

Finally, there are some controls on the right-hand side of the screen that allows the user to control the speed that the sequencer runs at, how often new active nodes are generated from Green cells, and so on. The ‘CLEAR’ button at the bottom allows the user to delete all active nodes if things get too chaotic.

As a MIDI generator, Hexcel does not create sound on it’s own – the MIDI data needs to be sent to an appropriate synth. This can be achieved either directly in Reaktor or using Reaktor in a DAW such as Ableton Live.

10. MIDI Grid

By: ADSR
 
MIDI Grid
 

MIDI Grid is a generative MIDI sequencer that can create evolving patterns in a chosen key and scale. MIDI Grid will work with any synth that accepts MIDI input. Requires Reaktor 6.3.

The bulk of MIDI Grid’s interface is a simple 8×8 grid.

Each square in the grid can have one of three basic types: dead, alive, or buffer.

Click on any square to change it’s type.

Dead squares don’t do anything, and they appear as an empty square on the interface. These should make up the majority of the grid.

Alive squares move in a direction, and they appear as an arrow pointing in that direction on the interface. Whenever they run into the edge of the grid, another alive square, or a buffer square, they change direction. Alive squares also trigger MIDI notes whenever they hit the edge of the grid. There are controls to the left of and above the grid that select which notes are triggered when this happens.

Buffer squares simply sit still and wait for alive squares to bump into them. They appear purple on the interface.

The key to creating a nice, evolving, patch in MIDI Grid is to set things up so that you have a few alive squares and buffer squares that will bump into each other as sequencer advances.

The collisions will cause the squares to change direction, which will cause the MIDI output to morph over time.

It is this that will add an element of randomness to your system (if you set your grid up so that no collisions occur between squares, it will never evolve at all).

To the right of the grid, there are controls for the key and scale, the speed of the sequencer, the length of the generated notes, and velocity. When changing key and scale, the changes made will be harmonically informed – you will always change to a key or scale that is harmonically adjacent to the one you just left.

As a MIDI generator, MIDI Grid does not create any sound on it’s own. You must route the MIDI data to the synth of your choice.

In the video provided, an example is shown using Ableton Live. While the exact method may differ slightly from DAW to DAW, it should be very similar in your program of choice.
