A Simple Reaktor Modulation Network Build
This tutorial comes from our member-only video archive. In it, Salamanderanagram shares how to set up a basic Reaktor modulation network that will make applying modulation to your sound a bit easier.
The idea here is to create a macro that will manage some basic functions and values for us, so that whatever kind of modulator we use with it, the experience will be pretty much the same. Having a module like this already built can save you a lot of time, effort and frustration when it comes to modulation assignments for your Reaktor sessions. You should be able to use this little tool for just about any kind of project that requires the use of modulation!
Of course, to test this new tool out we need to first build a simple modulator. In this example, a basic LFO running a sine wave is created, which can then be used to test out the functionality of the modulation system. If everything works properly, you should be able to modulate the pitch of a basic sine wave and control the rate at which it happens with the simple turn of a knob. But that isn’t really worth all this effort, it it? So let’s take it one step further and use the new modulation network to modulate the frequency of the LFO, which is in turn modulating the pitch of the sine wave oscillator! Want it to be more impressive? Just duplicate that LFO and now you can modulate the LFO modulating the LFO which is modulating the pitch of that sine wave!
