Boscomac releases Bouncing Ball for Reaktor

Boscomac has announced the release of Bouncing Ball, a delay effect ensemble for Native Instruments Reaktor.

Boscomac Bouncing Ball

BOUNCING BALL is a stereo delay that bounces like a ball. One can act on the bounce in different ways: by choosing the number of rebound, gravity which will influence their behavior, their decay like a fade in / out, their color by applying a filter (lowpass / highpass) and the time between bounces (synchronized to the tempo or not). To better visualize the action of the delay, the central display shows real time all changes.

The ensemble is a free download, donations are welcome.
