Peter Dines releases ParamDrum 3 Konkreet Performer Edition for Reaktor

Peter Dines ParamDrum 3 Konkreet Performer Edition

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 releases Arcturan UltraTheremin for Reaktor and Konkreet Performer

Peter Dines Arcturan UltraTheremin

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.

Peter Dines releases ParamDrum 3 beat machine for Reaktor

Peter Dines ParamDrum 3

Peter Dines has released v3 of ParamDrum, a beat machine for Native Instruments Reaktor 5.5.

ParamDrum is a fun and fast way to create unique sounding beats in Reaktor. It’s based on three granular samplers with built in parameter automation and variable length and speed step sequencers. The value of a step gives the probability that the step will trigger as the sequence plays, creating endless variations.

Changes in ParamDrum 3

  • All recordable parameters are now mouse-automatable by clicking and dragging on the indicator, perfect for when you’re stuck with a laptop but no MIDI controller.
  • The GUI now matches Frame, Loupe and Mirage with a clearer layout that is easier on the eyes.
  • Smooth and swing are now static parameters, making room for envelope decay and sample start as recordable parameters. Try modulating sample start with a melodic sample to build the foundation of a track right in ParamDrum.
  • A “Max Vel” switch for each sampler allows full velocity for each step, so step value affects only probability.
  • A virtual analogue “sub” kick unit has been added for layering a little extra earthquake with your sampled kicks.

ParamDrum 3 is available to purchase for $15 USD. The upgrade is free for current users.

Peter Dines releases Frame 2, Loupe and Mirage, granular sampling instruments for Reaktor

Reaktor Tips Mirage for Reaktor

Peter Dines of Reaktor Tips has released the Reaktor Sampler Pack, a collection three granular sampling instruments for Native Instruments Reaktor.

Reaktor Sampler Pack

  • Frame 2, a simple looping sampler designed for live control of loop points and other parameters.
  • Loupe, a polyphonic looping slicer for quickly mapping arbitrary (that is, non-beatsliced) sections of a sample to different MIDI keys.
  • Mirage, a granular sampler inspired by the music of Tim Hecker, Peter’s laziness, and his disorganization (those are Peter’s words…).

Frame 2 is available as a free download, Loupe and Mirage are $15 USD each. A bundle of Loupe and Mirage is available for $22.50 USD until the end of February, 2011.

James Blake @ 3VOOR12

Some interesting things I found recently:

James Blake: James Blake

Stream of James Blake's new album is available from the Dutch 3VOOR12 website.

British dubstep-pop up-and-comer James Blake’s self-titled debut album is out digitally next Tuesday, February 8, via Universal Republic in the U.S. (it’ll drop a day before in the UK via Atlas/A&M). Right now, the whole album is streaming over at 3VOOR12; you can head here to take a listen.

Furthermore, Listen Before You Buy points out that a bonus track from the LP, the haunting, sparse “Tep and the Logic”, is making the rounds.

Improved Reaktor voice panning and a little digital archaeology

Peter Dines:

I was reading through the Reaktor application manual which is greatly improved in recent times, and came across this structure to pan voices in the stereo field

din: create sound with Bezier curves in free instrument for Linux

Make music with just your mouse and keyboard. 143 drones are created in the video below.

Peter Kirn writes:

“din is noise” is a newly-updated “tone board,” making the rectangular plane of its screen into a field of sound you can transform. The video above just begins to show some of what it can do. Pixels can be tones, transformed onscreen. A resonator editor uses Bezier curves to edit sounds across octaves. Each resonator, in turn, can be edited with yet more Bezier curves. Put them together into the drone editor (the bit you see in the video), and you can create vast, sculpted soundscapes from series of rectangles dragged around between octaves.

It’s all free, and it’s all doable for your mouse – a Linux exclusive that might convince you to dual boot, or take a second look at that netbook.
