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.”

Rounik Sethi, Ask.Audio

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.

ONE for REAKTOR 6: a free synth

A warm analog-sounding eight-note polyphonic synth that uses just ONE oscillator and various FX to create smooth warm synths and basses. It also includes a SECRET WEAPON to create experimental sounds that will feed your inner experimentalist. Didn’t know you had one? Read on!

OSC 1 is in itself a 4-waveform oscillator featuring Sine, Triangle, Sawtooth and Pulse (with variable pulse-width). So far so standard. However…

THE SECRET WEAPON

OSC 1 also includes a deliberately incorrectly wired patch that creates a feedback loop distortion effect called “Wire”. This simulates the crackling and erratic jumps in volume caused by a dodgy jack-plug in a guitar amp. On a sine wave it produces gargle and on high value pulse waves it goes mad. This is perhaps the USP of this instrument. Use it responsibly!

GLOBAL FX & Controls

VCF with cutoff (also routed via midi CC1 to your keyboard controller strip/wheel) etc…

Envelope ( inc. velocity sensitivity).

Echo  (delay) with various parameters inc.tempo sync button.

Glide and Chorus

WHITE NOISE generator

Master Tune

Reverb and overall Master Output Level.

MIDI CC 14-29 inclusive are routed to various useful controls.

There are 23 presets in 3 banks accessible from the drop-down menu at the top of the instrument or by double-clicking “Embedded” in the presets side-pane.

NOTE. If error message received on loading please update your copy of Reaktor to the latest version via your Native Access and ensure this is the one in use next time.

FOUR. A synth for Reaktor

A warm analog-sounding synth that uses four different types of oscillator to create rich sounds from warm basses and pads to metallic leads and LOFI soundscapes… all via eighties style synth keyboards.

This synth has just received an update to V1.5 to include a step sequencer, a pitch sequencer/arpeggiator, a vinyl crackle effect, a noise gen and ten more presets using these new add-ons, bringing the snapshot total to 70.

Hear the new demos below. The drums are from a new pack called MORE DIRT on sounds.com

OSC 1 is in itself a 4-waveform oscillator that also includes a feedback loop distortion effect called “Wire” that simulates the crackling and erratic jumps in volume caused by a dodgy jack-plug in a guitar amp.

OSC 2 is a sine wave formant. This has its own simple LFO (tempo synced) that creates various warped vinyl simulations. It also features a “Mash” effect that creates various audio mess-ups between sample and hold simulation and distortion.

OSC 3 is a combo of one 8-step and two 4-step oscillators that create saw-wave/string sounds.

OSC 4 is a powerful bass (mainly) oscillator that morphs between a triangle and a sine wave.

GLOBAL FX & Controls

An LFO with three different sync options and four waveforms, phase, quantise, rate and cut-off.

VCF with cutoff (also routed via midi CC1 to your keyboard controller strip/wheel) etc…

Envelope (inc. velocity sensitivity).

Echo (delay) with various parameters inc.tempo sync button.

Glide and Chorus

Vinyl Effect

Noise Generator

Step Sequencer and Pitch Arp activated by Clock On in Reaktor or Host DAW.

Master-tune

Reverb and Master Output Level.

MIDI CC 14-29 inclusive are routed to various useful controls.

There are 70 presets in 7 banks accessible from the drop-down menu at the top of the instrument or by double-clicking “Embedded” in the presets side-pane.

View A is a dark metallic skin, view B is lighter.

SONGLINES

SONGLINES AMBIENT PACK, a REAKTOR LOOPER with live input.

 

This is a Reaktor 6 instrument consisting of 3 layers of 24 hypnotic ambient musical loops that play against each other to create complex, textured, atmospheric moods. Just hit the space bar to set the loops off and improvise along with the included mono-synth for hours of ENO-esque fun! SONGLINES is a great tool for creating unusual pads too: use Reaktor’s inbuilt recorder function to create fat, textural samples of your arrangements.

72 LOOPS

You get 72 loops in WAV format at 120 bpm.

You can happily downtempo to 105 and up to 140 before artefacts, and there are various FX (see LOOP DIALS below) to further randomise your mix.

The total possible combinations of loops is 72 x 72 (5184 variations) and that’s not factoring-in mute or solo into the possible arrangements. You don’t need to worry that your mixes will sound like anyone else’s.

You also get a live-play 4-wave mono-synth which features the same controls as below (see LOOP DIALS) plus fine-tune, attack, release and envelope dials. This can be a gritty bass-line or an ethereal 80’s style lead. Waveforms are SINE, TRIANGLE, SAW and PULSE. Pitch-wheel function (triggered by your keyboard) is routed to +-12 semitones so a lot of noodling is possible.

SONGLINES suits live performance or can be used in your DAW.

If multiple instances are used in the latter please re-load a fresh copy separately (don’t just copy track) to avoid a Reaktor loop meltdown.

All sounds and tune-snippets are Flintpope originals and completely royalty-free: if it sounds like someone else’s riff it isn’t. Care has been taken to ensure at least 99 percent of the loops all play nicely with each other and are mainly rooted in the key of C (can be re-tuned… see PITCH dial below).

LOOP DIALS

Each loop, or LINE (you can see the waveform playback on each) has a set of twelve controls.

SELECTOR (LOOP*1 etc) chooses the loop number from 1-24. Playback is instant as you change it. If playback-sync glitches simply press RETRIG (see below).

PITCH Up or down an octave.

SHIMMER A switch effect (on or off). Randomly stutters between different loops in this song-line. This is the secret weapon of this ensemble (used also in FLINTPOPE’S ATMOS, DRUMLINES and DRUMBOX). Used against other loops it can create an interesting texture and delightfully broken feel.

JUMP Another quirky effect dial that acts Like a vinyl record when the needle jumps. Experiment with settings to get repetitive Steve Reich rhythms or modern stutter effects, especially when combined with SHIMMER.

MID is a simple mid-range cut or boost dial that helps clarify the mix in a busy set of loops.

CUT(off) and RESO(nance) control the VCF of each line (and mono-synth) individually to provide a wide range of tonal variation, especially when combined with the MID dial.

(Re)VERB and CHORUS do what it says on the tin.

VOLUME dial needs no further explanation, neither do S(OLO), M(UTE) or PAN L & R

The Master FX

COMP DIAL. Can be turned up full for maximum brute compression.

MASTER The master volume output dial.

PAN L & R

RETRIG. Hit this to restart all the loops in sync if you want.

You also get seven presets as a taster.

Requires Reaktor 6 full version. FREE REAKTOR PLAYER NOT SUPPORTED

Haven’t got Reaktor 6? Why not consider purchasing this for the set of 72 soundloops? They are in a separate folder for easy access.

Reaktor power-users who are familiar with the Sample-map also get a folder with the three sample-maps so they can be used in other Reaktor samplers that use this function.

Again, Reaktor power-users should have no problem inserting their own loops or other sounds into this ensemble. Just ensure each sample is ROOT 60.

A Memory of Light

 

Winter drags on: do you remember summer? This synth certainly doesn’t. All presets are reminiscent of a Gothic cathedral in the deeps of a Nordic snowfall. Listen to the demo to get chilly.

A Memory of Light is a Flintpope Reaktor Blocks instrument featuring 40 sounds that bypass the usual waveform synthesis. Instead it combines a wind-synth oscillator with a noise generator through a pair of reverbs and a tape delay to create a mix of ethereal, powerful and lonely textures.

The package requires Reaktor 6 and Reaktor Blocks to play the presets. These are of course completely TWEAKABLE.
