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:
