Check out what people are making with PULSAR
“Pulsar is designed to create interesting soundscapes and experimental atmospheres and much more. It’s also cheap as chips for what it can do.”
PULSAR is a monophonic DUAL sample player for Reaktor 6 loaded with two banks of 127 samples each. The samples are chosen for atmosphere.
How Pulsar works.
Any two samples in banks A and B are overlaid; this gives a possibility of over 16000 possible combinations of sounds.They are then routed via an LFO (LFO 1) and various FX. LFO 1 can modulate a set of the FX parameters to make the sounds move and develop, and to richen things further the samples can also modulate each other if required.
So far so good, but then it gets more interesting as a second LFO (LFO 2) can then modulate LFO 1 for even more movement. And why stop there? LFO 1 can also modulate LFO 2 for a new level of sound morphing that can create unpredictable results.
PULSAR lends itself to soundscapes and experimental atmospheres and the embedded banks reflect this.
“…keep it weird! It’s not a synth. It’s a miniature, easy to use SPACESHIP.”

12 MINUTES VST/AU
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).
