Peter Dines releases Loupe 2 for Reaktor

1

Peter Dines has released Loupe 2, a sample manipulation instrument for Native Instruments Reaktor.

Peter Dines Loupe 2

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.

Loupe 2 is available to purchase for $15 USD.
