A drag and drop granular sample player that can create surprising sounds with a few tweaks.

Long interesting samples (evolving pads for example) result in far better variations than short dull ones (kicks and snares for example).

There is a set of 36 bundled samples and presets to demonstrate some possibilities with this instrument. Double click “Embedded” in the presets side-pane to get to the snapshots.

NOTE: the Playhead position can be mouse -controlled as well as using the relevant dial.

NOTE: On loading, if a pop-up says “Such and such a sample is missing, please locate.” It will be found in the Samples folder that came in the HORNFISH zip. Although the Flintpope elves went to great lengths to prevent this…

An important note on saving presets!

When working with HORNFISH in REAKTOR standalone, save any new Presets (File > Save Preset As …… ) as well as saving the Ensemble.

Otherwise HORNFISH will ask for “missing” samples when reloading the saved ensemble. This is an inherent feature of the way Reaktor handles samples and not a Flintpope quirk.

A further note: it is good practice to add user samples to the samples folder that comes with HORNFISH when creating new presets with new material.
