Twisted Tools S-LAYER

Twisted Tools has released version 1.1 of its S-LAYER for Native Instruments Reaktor.

S-LAYER is a sound creation tool that allows you to create, edit and play new sound combinations by taking samples and layering them together using an eight part sampler and an intuitive cell layout.

By combining sounds from the included sample map or your existing sample library, S-LAYER facilitates the discovery of new oneshots, sound effects and loops from your pre- existing sample content.

Changes in S-LAYER v1.1

  • Improved Sound Quality – Transients are sharper and the overall sound is crisper and closer to the original unprocessed sound.
  • Delay Cell – Start time delay per layer.
  • Phase Invert Mini-Cell – Phase invert per layer.
  • Mono Mode Mini-Cell – Mono mode per layer.
  • Pitchbend – MIDI in pitchbend messages now supported.
  • Output Limiter/Clipper – Added simple one-button output limiter/clipper to prevent overs.
  • New and improved mouse behavior for cell sliders – Clicking sliders displays value and double-clicking slider anywhere will lock slider into place.
  • Safe Scene Switching Mode – Optional mode to improve Scene switching in DAWs using older CPUs, preventing clicks that might occur.
  • Soloed Layer Highlighter – Highlights the soloed layer row.
  • MIDI capable GUI display switching (optional) – User can now assign MIDI CC’s to GUI page switching for Main Pages, Sequencer/Wrapper Pages and Strt | Delay cells.

S-LAYER for Reaktor is available to purchase for $69 USD.

Twisted Tools S-LAYER for NI Reaktor: Create playable and unique sound combinations by layering samples

Twisted Tools has announced the release of S-LAYER, a sound creation tool for Native Instruments Reaktor 5.

Twisted Tools S-LAYER

S-LAYER is a sound creation tool that allows you to create, edit and play new sound combinations by taking samples and layering them together using an eight part sampler and an intuitive cell layout. By combining sounds from the included sample map or your existing sample library, S-LAYER facilitates the discovery of new oneshots, sound effects and loops using pre-existing sample content. Whether you’re looking for a new way to create thick drum samples for hip-hop or a massive impact sound effect for game, S-LAYER delivers.

With S-LAYER, up to eight parts are played back and manipulated simultaneously using an advanced layered sampler engine, where each layer remains independent and can be surgically edited. Time-tested sound design techniques such as reversing, pitching, modulating and mixing sounds together can be quickly achieved by randomizing and fine-tuning with sliders and knobs. In addition to the on-board granular, filter and time-based effects, you can also connect your own effects using the insert/send system or by using the direct outputs. Once you’ve found a sound combination that you like, you can store it on-the-fly in one of eight ‘Scenes’ which can be dynamically played backed and controlled using MIDI.

In addition to the included sample library featuring sounds from many renowned sound designers, S-LAYER comes bundled with an iPad Lemur MIDI template by Antonio Blanca and a MIDI template for Native Instruments’ Maschine.

  • Transpose Mode to play layered sound combinations chromatically.
  • Direct Outs per voice for Multi-Out Instrument support using DAWs or hardware effects.
