Feed your inner sound-designer


Feed your inner sound designer with this set of twelve one-minute atmospheric pieces of musical abstraction by Flintpope. Twelve Minutes was originally created as a set of sound designs for Native Instruments sample download site sounds.com. Flintpope put them all (yes, twelve one-minute soundscapes) into one free rompler to plug-in to your DAW as a VST or Audio Unit.

Why not experiment with these audio backdrops to make some unusual spaces between the beats, or maybe just layer them into quirky pads for filmic effect?


This VST/AU is polyphonic. A short Release is pre-set to stop chaos but can be increased to create chaos if required. Playing a new note re-triggers the chosen sample from the start. To stop all sound if chaos is too chaotic just hit the Kill button.

Presets can be changed on the fly for interesting overdubs, and experimenting with the Release on the fly (and any of the controls e.g. Verb)) can create interesting and responsive textures. HOWEVER, see LIMITATIONS below for what changes actually get recorded in your DAW. This is a get it onto tape kind of instrument so get your cassette or external recorder fired up and improvise.


Release, Filter C/O, Reverb, Pan and Pitch Shift. Gain, LFO Amount and Rate. Preset Selector (12 options). Kill (stop all notes).

NOTE: LFO Waveform is set to Square and destination is set to Pan. The other options are, well, stupid. And they clutter up the GUI.

This VST/AU responds to pitchbend from a midi/usb keyboard and the mod wheel controls LFO Amount, over-riding the on-screen dial.


This box is made with Maizesoft which allows assignable sliders within your DAW for ADSR and Filter C/O but nothing else. This is not a Flintpope issue so don’t get in touch thanks! The Release and CUT settings are also somewhat insensitive and only make a useful difference near the zero end of the dial (extreme left).

Virtual Crate Digging



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).
