Peter Dines has introduced Ghost Shift, a free multitap filtered delay effect for Native Instruments Reaktor.
Ghost Shift is a delay effect based on an earlier version of mine called Pumpkin. I’ve reskinned it, added functionality and fine tuned the filter and feedback parameters for easier sound tweaking.
The major thing you have to know about Ghost Shift is that each delay line works as a separate voice in Reaktor. Adding more voices in the instrument parameters is gonna give you more delay taps, and magically, the number of controls in the delay time, pan etc. graphs will auto-adjust to the number of voices / delay taps.
Ghost Delay is a free download for Reaktor Tips Facebook fans.
Peter Dines of Reaktor Tips has announced a Plug-it-in sale, offering his instruments at a discount for a limited time.

Peter Dines has announced the release of Frame 3, a free creative sampler ensemble for Native Instruments Reaktor.
Frame is a simple Reaktor sampler I built 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. Depending on the size of the sample, the smoothness, the spacing, and whether or not you’ve turned up the position / length LFO, you can get results that are reminiscent of some of the great creative sampling musicians – well alright, this also requires skill and taste; all I’m doing here is removing one of the technical hurdles. ;-)
The Frame 3 ensemble is a free download for Reaktor 5.8 (full version).
Peter Dines has released Loupe 2, a sample manipulation instrument for Native Instruments Reaktor.
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.
Peter Dines has announced version 1.03 of the Chroma and Gris Gris sequencer and synthesizer for Native Instruments Reaktor, which adds a few features and fixes a couple of minor bugs.
The Gris-Gris synth now has two additional filter types, bandpass and high pass, and a ring mod control for metallic and bell tones. It comes with a much expanded and refined Lemur template that allows full editing of sequences.
To celebrate the release of this new version, the Chroma and Gris-Gris sequenced synth ensemble is temporarily reduced in price from $24.99 to $19.99
Chroma can be purchased and downloaded right now. Remember, Chroma is a Reaktor ensemble and requires a full installation of Reaktor 5.8.0, not just Reaktor player.
I’ve also added further support for Lemur. The new template has three pages – the original quickpage, plus a sequence edit page and a full synth edit page that offers control of every parameter in the Gris-Gris synth. The quickpage now has controls for sequence speed, key and scale type.
