Peter Dines has released ParamDrum 3 Konkreet Edition, a Reaktor drum machine for Konkreet Performer.
This time the big deal is Konkreet Performer mappings. Performer is an iPad app that gives you tactile control over anything that can receive OSC, such as Reaktor. Free utiities also let you translate it to MIDI for software and hardware that can’t receive OSC. How good is Konkreet Performer? It’s the reason I went out and bought an iPad in the first place.
ParamDrum 3 (including KP Edition) for Reaktor is available to purchase for $15 USD. The ParamDrum 3 Konkreet Performer Edition is free for owners of previous versions of ParamDrum.
For a limited time ParamDrum is available in a bundle with the Sampler Pack (Frame 2, Loupe and Mirage) for $22.50 USD (regular $45 USD).

Peter Dines has released the Arcturan UltraTheremin, a free download for Reaktor and Konkreet Performer.
I built this as a learning project to figure out how to map Konkreet Performer’s nodes to voices in Reaktor. If you’re interested, you can download here – you’ll need an iPad and Konkreet Performer to really make use of it. (It also works with TouchOSC – layout included in download – if you don’t mind a slightly less freakish playing experience)
Here’s how it works – set Konkreet up with three nodes and a ribbon. The three nodes control pitch and intensity. Angle from left to right is mapped to pitch, and proximity to the center node controls vibrato depth, rate and filter resonance. As pitch increases, the filter cutoff and pulsewidth also change.
Arcturan UltraTheremin is available to download at no cost.

Konkreet Labs has released Konkreet Performer, an OSC music control and performance instrument for iOS.
PERFORMER is a music control and performance instrument, made for multitouch iOS-based devices, designed with two aims: one, a controller that utilises multitouch technology to the full; no faders and knobs, instead an intuitive control of software instruments on your computer, via manipulation of abstract objects on your multitouch device. And two, an instrument for electronic music performance that aims to be visually shared with the audience, to create a live show that is indeed alive!
Konkreet Performer is available to purchase for $24.99 USD.
