Peter Dines has released Loupe 2, a sample manipulation instrument for Native Instruments Reaktor.

Peter Dines Loupe 2

Loupe is a Reaktor ensemble that assigns freeform sections of a sample to different MIDI notes and allows them to be pitched, reversed, resized, filtered and enveloped individually. The incoming MIDI notes do not repitch the sample directly , but you can manually adjust each slice / key’s tuning to create more complex melodic variation out of your source sample.

Changes in Loupe 2

  • Autoslicing function – set base note, number of slices, and hit the slice button to automatically map sample segments across the keyboard. Works great on beatloops as well as melodic material.
  • New GUI with color coded per-slice parameters and polyphonic slice markers mapped across the waveform display.
  • Visual feedback showing the effect of position LFO.
  • Improved slice reverse function.
  • Delay mode: slice parameters, repitching, slice areas, filter, reverse and envelope can be mapped to live audio, with buffer freeze features.
  • A one-knob “clarify” control rolls off the bass and boosts treble so your samples sit better in the mix.
  • MIDI mappable per-slice fine start and length controls allow you to fine tune slice position from a MIDI controller without reaching for the mouse.
  • A new Hold control sustains struck notes, freeing your hands to perform with the global controls.
  • TouchOSC iPad template is included in the archive.
  • Improved slice position LFO and other small tweaks and bugfixes.

Loupe 2 is available to purchase for $15 USD.

    This was already an incredibly useful and inspirational tool, with this upgrade it has really opened up some creative new avenues for me…highly recommended for Reaktor 5.8 users who strive to make sampling into a personal musical expression :D
