Zero Kelvin v2.0
By Tom Randle

Effect based on the Electro Harmonix Freeze Pedal
The Zero Kelvin ensemble was inspired by the Electro-Harmonix Freeze pedal. It’s not an exact replica as I added a few customizations of my own.

The primary purpose of this effects ensemble is to generate drones and sustaining notes/chords from live input by "freezing" audio passing through. Kind of like a seamless looper with a really short memory.

There are two identical freezing instruments in parallel: ICE1 and ICE2. The captured frozen signals can be shaped via a 10-band EQ and multimode 4-pole filter and finally crossfaded manually or via modulation (aka churn).

The ensemble was built with live performance in mind which accounts for the large displays and huge LEDs. I also kept true switches to a minimum to allow for parameter and modulation changes without losing the current buffer.

If you’re a guitarist and cursed with only two hands, I recommend using a foot controller to map the hold buttons.

Credits to:
-Chet Singer for his excellent EQ macro (part of the awesome Ampere Modular collection) and associated art
-Bernd Keil for some knobs ("031 tlm" in the Reaktor user library)
-Dieter Zobel's DigiSchmutz ensemble for bit and sample reduction macros

All other custom artwork, switches, knobs and sliders were made by me. Feel free to use them in your own ensembles!

****Version 2 Updates****
1.REDUCED CPU: Each ICE instrument now converts stereo input to mono reducing cpu use by roughly 50%

2.NEW MODE: “Auto.” In this mode the freeze function is automatically triggered by audio input. When both ICE1 and ICE2 are set to Auto they alternate freezing. Depressing the hold button allows for soloing on top of drone without auto trigger.

3.NEW FEATURE: “Destroy” toggle switch on each ICE instrument for bit and sample rate reduction with a saturation circuit.

4.Various tweaks and added fine tuning options in view B.



Frame 3 v1.0
By Peter Dines

A simple sampler for creative sampling
Frame is a simple Reaktor sampler I created to implement a type of freeform looping and creative sampling I felt was missing from most other software samplers on the market. Frame allows you to define a window of sound and sweep it across the sample as it plays without glitching or popping.

Wake v3.0
By Jason Jochems

A fine tooth comb of a granular instrument gets even finer
So this is yet another granular instrument. But its a bit of a different layout to other ones ive seen. Its designed to have extremely fine control over whatever grain controls there are. Whether its modulated by its Lfo or its different concept of envelopes which are shaped using 32 step event tables. Good for drones and for real in depth control of the progession of the sample. Whether you're speeding up and slowing down entire vocal passages are whatever pace you want or freezing one particular noun and warping it over a long drawn out span. Its the controls that make this boy different. Suggestions and criticisms are very welcome!

*New in 2.0. Panel B now has much more in depth intuitive editing for the Position Envelope. All the envelopes have allow you to adjust thier resolution between 4 steps to 64 steps. It includes a beat counter to adjust the envelope lengths to whatever tempo you have. The new editing features open up some new possibilities for it. Despite the new features, this one is still a bit less Cpu intensive than the first thanks to some of Sowaris suggestions. Plus i have to thank Shane Higgins for suggestions that inspired the new direction of this ensemble.

*A warning for the easily offended, theres a bit of swearing in some of the presets.

**updated 05/28/13 I've made it a little more cpu friendly and more flexible controls. I also gave it a facelift with nicer looking knobs and panel. I also included my effect "Pulse" which can be downloaded separately.



Step Seq v1.5 + Nano Wave II v2.0
By michael lancaster

updated monoliner
This is my first attempt at modifying monoliner, I have added some controler channels and a v basic panel set.I'm learning as i go.
hope this is of use to someone else
I have updated this . I have made gate amounts finer and fiddled with the lay out, which should be a bit clearer and easier to use.
I have now fixed the step mute bug and the controllers now only display 0-1)
V1.3 added 96 clock out for sync.Sorted out velocity displays so they mean what it says.messed around with panel,(again!)
add massive to show sync connection 96 to 96 also as demo controller lane 2 controls overall pitch for massive(just assign a midi control number to what you need to control on massive) had to erase most of massive samples just to fit in the upload here.
v1.4 - Added 2 x LFO's and 2 x Trigger lanes
V1.5 - Fixed a double note off which occasionally glitched things! made the lfo's more controlable,They now have a max min for better usage



Blue Odyssey v1.4
By Antonio Antetomaso

My porting of the Arp Odyssey inside Reaktor
This is a porting of the legendary synthesizer "Arp Odyssey". Any comments are appreciated. Feel free to make your improvements or to create your own sound set.
For this first version I created only an INIT sound.
The biphonic mode can be switched off.

-- V. 1.1 --
Some minor graphic fixes

-- V.1.3 --
ADSR/AR connected to the Noise
Graphics improvement
Other minor bugs fixed

-- V 1.4 --
Changed the modeling of S&H Mix sliders
Other minor bugs fixed


Juno-106 v1.2
By Stephan Becker

Juno-106 emulation
The Juno-106 by Roland was the first (and so far only) real analog synthesizer I owned. I really loved that instrument. The one I owned had a silent third voice which wasn't critical for me, but then also the first voice broke and I wasn't able to get spare parts anywhere, so I sold it for a ridiculous amount of money.
This emulation features the same controls and features as the original one. The sound is as far as I remember very close.

The main synthesizer part and the first 28 presets are taken from an old NI-ensemble with some minor changes. Some presets above number 64 are taken from the Junatik-ensemble in the current Reaktor 5 library.

There are some differences to the real Juno:
1. The "MANUAL"-button enables/disables memory protection.
2. By pressing the "WRITE"-button a preset is stored to the current bank and patch number
3. You can't connect a tape recorder to store or load presets. Therefore I decided to use these buttons as unison detune control. Pressing "SAVE" gives zero detuning like on the original, pressing "VERIFY" gives slight detuning and "LOAD" gives strong detuning.
4. The bender can't be pushed upwards, to trigger LFO pitch modulation there's an extra button.
5. The envelope generator that controls LFO delay is polyphonic.

Almost all panel controls respond to MIDI control change messages. The Info Hints show the CC-number.

The instrument has monophonic Pitch-, Gate- and CV- inputs to connect sequencers. Although the inputs recieve only monophonic data, the instrument plays polyphonic if poly-mode 1 is selected. So it can play overlapping notes without cutting the previous note.

Comes with 128 snaps.

There's one bug with preset selection: If you select a snapshot via the instrument header from group B and then press one of the bank or patch buttons, it jumps back to group A.
