Constructing a Simple Trill Effect with Reaktor - Part 1
Welcome to this installment of our members only video tutorial series. This time salamanderanagram walks us through the steps of making a simple trill effect in Reaktor.
The trill has been a point of discussion in the music and audio world for many years. Called shake, vibration, quavering, quivering, alternations, warbling, etc and can either be desired or undesired depending upon the situation and sound(s) in question. One thing that is not up for debate is the fact that this term and the associated auditory effect have a place in music and can actually provide a naturally desired movement, that is often described as ‘life’, in a sound. A trill can be applied to just about any sound via an effect or plugin of some sort, or it can be achieved naturally through either synthesis or naturally delivered notes. This helpful tutorial video shares how to make your own trill effect from scratch in Reaktor.
Many trill effects of this kind also have a legato voice handling systen, but this will be covered in a future tutorial rather than being implemented now. There is just only so much time in the day! But as it stands at the end of this lesson, this trill effect is on its way to being something really great and will bring added interest and character to your sounds. A glide effect will also be added in the next installment of this series, so you will definitely want to tune in and see how it all comes together!
