These are some of my Reaktor Blocks, grab them, free, from the User Library now. I know I'm not the most objective reviewer, but they're basically the entire future of all electronic music, and you'd be crazy not to have them in every Rack you ever build from today on.... Complex Modulator
is a dual LFO with reciprocal FM and multiple logical trigger outputs. Get the West Coast feel of the DWG Oscillator, but instead of crazy timbres, get crazy modulation patterns. Trigger events from zero crossings and waveform crossings, and use Minimum or Maximum outputs from oscillators, Absolute distances between the waves, Average wave level, or just the frequency modulated Left and Right wave outputs. You'll be amazed at how much control can come out of two oscillators, FM, and a few comparators! Probability Sequencer
is an eight step sequencer with probabilistic control of the On/Off state for each step. For each step, the next or previous step can be the subject of a weighted coin toss which may flip the state of that step. A step can be addressed by either the next, previous, or no steps, and the likelihood of a state flip can be set globally. Gates are output for any steps that are On when read, with a Gate length independent of the step duration. The Block also outputs the Flip control as a slewed CV. Controlled Explosion
gives you a LOT of gates in a very short time. You set the duration of the gate-explosion, the peak point during that time, and the density of the gate cloud. The gates can be regular or jittered, and appear at random weighted by the level of an AR envelope over the total explosion time. The envelope can be shaped, and the gates weighted further to the upper or lower levels of the envelope. The Envelope is output as a CV, and so is the phase driver of the whole Block, for syncing to other events! Just hook this to a kick drum or a low pass gate, and go crazy. Vector CV
is a neat little CV processor that modifies two CV inputs by a vector, set by the Block controls and the AB Mod bus. It then outputs the modified CV for X and Y dimensions, and also the angle and magnitude of the vector itself. This allows two modulators to be turned into four, synced and mathematically related, but with the Magnitude and Angle relations being much more subtle and interesting than simple multipliers or absolute offsets. Magnitude is always positive, and can be scaled to 1 or clipped at 1, Angle is bipolar with positive slopes giving positive CV, and negative negative. This is an extremely subtle, deceptively elegant processor.
