Re: Reaktor Loopers, anyone?

Donít hesitate to ask about this at the NI reaktor forum; theyíre  
very open to beginner queries and generally more than helpful. Just  
be clear about how youíre defining ďlooping;Ē they use the term in a  
variety of ways over there, mostly using prerecorded sample maps, and  
not referring to live looping of instrumental input. Iíve searched  
myself for pre-built ensembles that act as live-input looping devices  
and there are some, definitely, but since Iíve always had hardware  
loopers since I started messing with Reaktor, I was never motivated  
to pursue any of them very hard. (Itís been a long while, which is  
why Iím not able to be more specific...) I found it more interesting  
to try to build my own delay-centric toys, scavenging from otherís  
work, mostly, and to use Reaktor FX for post-loop mangling, at which  
it is unparalleled. I put together a tutorial on FX in Reaktor based  
on what I learned and thereís some simple examples of long-delay  
devices in there. Itís one of the links below:
