4-tap delay w/ pitch shifting v1.1
By greg o'grady


  pitch shifting delay effect
my first contribution to the library.
a simple 4-tap delay with pitch shifting, pan, and feedback controls.
requires some audio input to get it started.
good for making drones. knobs by Bernd Keil.


resoton 2 v1.0
By Dieter Zobel


  simple resonator effect,
playable by midi.
please activate masterclock
by using stand alone.
best results by feeding with percussive


spaceMaestro v1.0
By rick scott


  space master deluxe reverb
randomizable reverb built around NI's wunderbar Space Master Deluxe core cell.

SMD didn't need much improvement; all i did was change some of the parameter ranges and repackage it with a smaller footprint (view B).

1. choose a snap template.
2. click raNd (or press Q).
3. fine-tune manually.

  Another sound mangler / lo-fi vinyl chopper
Nothing too original, just another machine from my live sets updated slightly for the UL.
Just replace the loop or input a live feed (recommended) with the clock started and away you go.
Big thanks to all those who put the little parts of this machine together
(Dieter Zobel, Rick Scott, J. Styles, Joe Orgren, jopyjopyjopy, and many others).
I can only take credit for some light construction and a need to fulfill.

monoliner fixed v1.0
By gergely suto


Monoliner,the monophonic sequencer that comes with the Reaktor package,
has two malfunctions, one concerning velocity settings:
often 0 values still trigger notes;
the other concerning gate settings:
often notes overlap, which does not make much sense in case of a monophonic sequencer.
The fixes used are extremely simple core cells, nevertheless,
at least concerning the second case, I would not have known how to find a solution on primary level.
I did not do any other changes on purpose, sorry for the dissapointment:)



orgaNism eLeven v1.3
By rick scott


  self-playing organism - added some snaps
space-brassy-sounding sit-back-and-watch/listen-as-i-play-myself orgaNism.



AutoWave pata v1.0
By Bernd Keil


  a good ol' Martin Brinkmann piece
4x2 cycles trigger 4 oscillators.
the oscillators are sent through a filter, delay, flanger
and another delay. MIDI tranposable.
for 'predictable' results you should restart the clock after changing cycles
(or snapshots) 19.5.2000 martin brinkmann

incl. pata pitch & gate, fx, wave and ubiPan
fader by Jonathan Style
pan macro based on Dieter Zobel's development

bank 2 is mirrored by 1 with little changes but effectfully
bank 3 is partly randomed by Donovan Stringers 'Set Random'

start the clock and enjoy it


Digitek v5.5
By tim lamb


  Chiptune wave buffer based synth
Digitek is a chip music synthesizer with modern limitations.
It's based on some concepts from my old "Oki Computer" ensemble only
now with core a lot more can be accomplished.

There is waveform table with 9 oscillator shapes (last 2 are drawable on the right side)
as well as randomization mixing and classic LFSR for noise.

The filter can "sit" before the shapes are written into the wave oscillator,
and or after the output. (Internal, External & I&E)

3 Envelopes and 2 Tables can be assigned to any of the parameters.

This is a pretty heavy update featuring 5 independent synths.
Each synth has its own selectable MIDI Channel with 8 scenes of settings
which can be sequenced using key switches assigned on the lowest octave.
Making it ideal for drum sequencing or split key voice sharing.

You might like this if your into interesting & bizarre digital synthesis,
or like the sounds of Gameboy, NES, C64 & Mods, chiptunes & chip music.


FlexSynth v1.1
By huddie klein


  Synth with flexible routing.
For both oscillators, both filters and a distorion unit the next unit in the signal chain can be set freely.
This allows the filters to be used in series or paralel, the oscillators can be sent to filter 1 or filter 2 independently,
and the distorion unit can put anywhere in the signal chain.

This way a wide variety of sounds can be created with both oscillators,
and they can be mixed in various ways.
This allows for sounds not easily created by synths with a fixed signal path.

For most modulation destinations one or two sources and positive or negative modulation amount can be set.

In the ensemble I added two instruments I created from effects in Jonathan Styles excellent Slacker synth:
a chorus and a delay. Furthermore I used his graphics from Reaktor Ready set 1.
So thanks to Jonathan for the much needed uni-directional knobs!


multiSM v1.3
By John Bleech


  a crossfade synthesizer
"multiSM" is a crossfade synthesizer consisting of two independent oscillators.
For each oscillator you can select a sawtooth, pulse, triangle or sine waveform
and then use some controls to shape the wave further, if so desired.
A multi-breakpoint envelope can modulate (crossfade)
the sound between a simple sine wave and the shaped wave.
The same multi-BP envelope can also be used to modulate the pitch and filter cutoff.

The synth was designed to reduce crackling noise when using the switches or changing snapshots.
The on/off switch for each oscillator comes in handy while creating snapshots
and can also save some CPU, which is already fairly low for an 8-voice synth.
I modified the multi-BP envelope so that it auto-zooms (just like double-clicking)
whenever a snapshot is changed. It has no built-in effects.
You can add your own, if you want.

note: I've included two ensembles in the download.
One of the ensembles is a single instance of multiSM.
The other ensemble has two instances of "multiSM" and a master instrument
with controls that should be self-explanatory.
There aren't many snapshots but in the existing snaps
I've tried to visit all of the features of the synth.
