Flintpope has announced the release of Pulsar, a different kind of sample player for Native Instruments Reaktor.
Pulsar is a monophonic dual layer sample player that comes loaded with two banks of 127 samples each.
Any two samples in banks A and B are overlaid; this gives a possibility of over 16000 possible combinations of sounds. They are then routed via an LFO (LFO 1) and various FX. LFO 1 can modulate a set of the FX parameters to make the sounds move and develop, and to richen things further the samples can also modulate each other if required.
So far so good, but then it gets more interesting as a second LFO (LFO 2) can then modulate LFO 1 for even more movement. And why stop there? LFO 1 can also modulate LFO 2 for a new level of sound morphing that can create unpredictable results.
PULSAR lends itself to soundscapes and experimental atmospheres and the embedded banks reflect this.
Pulsar is available for £17.99 GBP. Requires the full version of Reaktor 6.3.1 (R6) or higher.
