Twisted Tools Vortex

Twisted Tools has released version 1.1 of Vortex, a six track polyphonic sampler and sequencer for Native Instruments Reaktor 5.

It comes pre-configured for Kore 2 and Maschine and features an original 200mb+ sample map with samples by artists such as Antonio Blanca, c2, Richard Devine, Josh Hinden, Noklip,, Mike Huckaby, Sonictwist, Timonkey, Tipper and Vinja.

Changes in Vortex v1.1

  • Double-click to reset parameter knobs to default value — Double-clicking on a parameter knob on the A-view resets the knob to the default value.
  • Bipolar Swing with scene memory — Click and drag the swing button in either direction to add alternate shuffle/swing to your rhythms. The swing and swing is stored with the scene you’re working on.
  • Zero-Modulation Sequencing — Turn on zero-modulation sequencing by clicking the necessary ‘z’ buttons on the sequencer tabs. When on for a given sequencer, that sequencer will send zero-values for steps that are set to zero.
  • Randomization Exclude Buttons — The B-View now features randomization exclude buttons. This way you can choose which parameters/modulators you would like to be randomized. When cyan colored, that parameter will be randomized. When grey, it won’t be randomized. This is especially useful if you’d like to exclude parameters like volume and pan from being randomized.
  • Various small fixes.

Vortex for Reaktor 5 is available to purchase for $29 USD.
