6 band threshold EQ
by Jedinhopy Xelon

Pasted Graphic

This equalizer allows you to boost and cut parts of the spectrum without making the frequency response changes static like a traditional classic equalizer.

This equalizer on the other hand does allow you to set thresholds for all bands separately.
The thresholds responds differently depending on the filter-bank spectrum analysis dynamics.

It can for example be used on high mid transients to increase or decrease their volume when it falls above the set threshold for that specific band.

It can even boost or cut parts of the spectrum that is not true to the analysis frequencies by simply using the (EQ bands) fader/slider.

It is not only made for processing things like percussive drums or similar.

It can even be used creatively to make transients appear on audio material that previously had none. It's because once one of the resonances crosses the threshold back and forth.
A transient is created. Just set the (Attack) and (Decay) parameters for the envelope followers to be low and don't forget to set this one low as well:
(Parameter smoothing) to make sure that the fake transients really becomes apparent. Short lived temporary resonant peaks = fake transients.


Freq Split Delay
by Balasz Fejes

Pasted Graphic 1

This one is a simple four tap delay where three delay line have different filter type and freqency band each, and there's a clean one without filter. Stereo spread, tempo synced delay time, delay level, feedback are adjustable in each delay line, as well as the filter resonance except the clean one.

The A and B panel have different layout.

4 Euclidean sequencers found lurking in the reaktor user library (Martin Wood-Mitrovski, normalised, Nadine @NI, Santiago Vilanova et al), stripped down a bit and pressed into ratcheting each other....
This is an update of earlier instrument - Polybiff
The output stage has been rebuilt by Brett Lavallee who also did the GUI, Presets and FX section....

A few performance tweeks
the auto reset on lfos now counts active steps rather than all steps

pulse display now behaves properly
Random clocks now match master seq settings(not twice as fast)
random clocks when in resync mode(greater than 0) will trigger a new random setting only on reset(by passing lfo clock settings)
all Reset lights now flash irrespective of being switched on- just like all the other reset flashes( except when in resync mode then it resets on play)
the odd initialisation error that stopped lfo’s fixed
fixed the odd reset on play.
Added a seq Velocity out (0-1)
Included 2 macros : Bipolar2Unipolar and Unipolar2Bipolar
and a general pruning of structure

Fixed lfo’s not running sometimes at first load.
fixed hanging notes when a switch was switched while playing.
Added Shuffle for main seq
Fixed input pitch being remembered if key control switched off.
Redone the Random setting on the lfo’s
switching off lfo;s stops them dead, no sneaky last min outputs.
1/3,1/6,1/12 clock settings now behave properly.
Replaced clocks with new master clock.
added a glide function for the block output
and midi output
lfo’s-aftertouch-fixed duplicate values being sent
I've made quite a lot of changes,so if you come across something that doesn't work,please let me know and i'll try and fix it.

“It disgusts me … and I can’t stop thinking about it.”
—Nancy Wheeler

“Macabre and spellbinding. Appearing as if out of nowhere.”
—Mr. Clarke

A demonic organ drone machine full of horrifying ambiences and ethereal detuned pads. Inspired heavily by its namesake—as well as a fairly popular recent series on Netflix—this ensemble can get unruly. Be safe with your volumes.

Built with some pieces of a mystery synth from the user library that I once downloaded and tore apart. For the life of me I can not seem to locate that ensemble to give proper credit to the user. My apologies.

Also used in this ensemble:

SRI_SYNT (1.7)
by David Coffin

Pasted Graphic 7

The other day I was searching the UL for LFOs, and stumbled upon this, here:, and loved it. It comes with no snaps and not even an ensemble, just two versions as .ism files, and a bunch of comments about how it ought to have snaps and more envelops, too. So I slapped it into a new Ens, and started tinkering, aimlessly at first, then with more purpose as it's really interesting… Soon I defaulted most everything, then later started messing with the Randomize function in the snap panel, and before long, noticed that with the factor set at 50 or below, the mod matrix doesn't change, but above 50 it does…! But it's quite amazing what you can find without changing the matrix. I added the factory Effect Anima at one point, thinking it would be a good match, liked that quite a bit, but I was still at the no-distractions stage, so ditched that eventually. But this thing is surely ready to explore with the right FX…Molekular?

Anyway, here's my snaps, along with the ens I'd made, simply because, after another while I noticed that I was unable to save snaps to the instrument level, only at the Master level, which I'd been doing sort of unconsciously from the start. Tried exporting my snaps into the instrument, but they did nothing. Tried saving a new snap to it, noticing that there actually IS a snap in there on the instrument header, just greyed out, and could get it to appear in the bank with Append, etc., but it always DIS-appeared when I'd hit that button the second time. So, I've no idea about why that's all happening, but decided to put up my ens with the snaps where they'd started to reduce confusion. So, you have to either set the snap panel to only see the master Ens -SRI Synt bank, or click the background to re-target that if you have the panel set to follow clicks, which is my default pref.


Werkbank 1.5

Werkbank Reaktor Ensemble [made in v6.0.3]
Additive Sine Bank Synthesizer with lin. Interpolation between Partial Data Sets

While reading some tutorials by salamanderanagram (Donald Phillips), I came up with the idea of using the event table and its Y-interpolation to morph linearly between different partial data sets. Although the basic concept is working, the overall experience (at least for me) isn't as inspiring as I expected it to be.

Werkbank can be pretty CPU demanding: the more voices / partials, the higher the CPU usage. If you experience audio dropouts, reduce the voice count in the instrument settings and/or the number of partials.

Initial inspiration and basic structure by salamanderanagram (Donald Phillips):
Thank you!

Version history:
1.5 (2016-09-21)
- Reaktor 6 GUI-update [re-combined the two stacked macros into one, nice that the size is freely selectable now, mostly replaced the images with the new controls, changed colors,..]
- Added random partial source (next step will be to bind the randomization to the existing data) - mostly useful to set a random phase per partial
To do: more and newer FX, make new and better snapshots..
