Nick Dwyer aka Flintpope has dug deep into his virtual crates over at sounds.com to create a Reaktor instrument that combines four sound banks in a set-up that allows real flexibility. With thousands of possible combinations of drum loops, ambient sounds, percussive weirdness and minute-long sound-fields coupled with easy mouse-drag on the fly live remixability you’ll be creating original grooves and musical textures in seconds.

LOFI MELODIC HIP HOP Sample Layer Player for Reaktor 6.2.2 (full version)
LOFI MELODIC HIP HOP is essentially a 4 x sample-loop playback instrument with realtime remixing capability to get interestingly varied results.
With a LOFI HIP HOP flavour.
This player is designed to create an infinite variety of LOFI drum loops (or even just atmospheres) with a melodic feel.
FOUR samplers each loaded with Flintpope sound designs can be triggered by your keyboard and scanned with a mouse drag while playing to remix the final result on the fly. Record as you go along with Reaktor’s built in facility or use a DAW.
SAMPLE Bank 1 is the 12 MINUTES sound bank taken from Flintpope’s pack of the same name on sounds.com
SAMPLE Bank 2 the LOOPER sound bank taken from Flintpope’s STRANGELOOPS pack on sounds.com
SAMPLE Bank 3 is the DRUMS section taken from Flintpope’s Reaktor instrument DRUMBOX
SAMPLE Bank 4 is the AMBIENT sound bank taken from Flintpope’s Reaktor instrument SONGLINES
There are 16 presets to give a flavour of these possibilities. Double click “Embedded” in the presets side-pane or use the drop-down menu in the device header.
The instrument also features Master Envelope and Velocity Sensitivity, Master Level and Pan.
The most useful dial is OVERLAP. The most useful control is the OUTPUT SCANNER.
Each sampler also has its own unique controls for Sample Choice, Pitch, Level and playback Start-point.
The value of this set-up is the ability to easily replace the samples with your own*
*(Need advice? Go to the Reaktor 6 Diving Deeper manual and open Chapter 8, page 69 (The Sample Map Editor) for a detailed guide.
Ensure all samples are set to midi note 60 and the keyboard range is for the correct midi note range inclusive for each sampler so the selector dials to operate correctly).
