Creating a Custom Reaktor Filter with Modulation
Whether you know him as Astrolith or as Evan Sutton of Dubspot fame, his sounds and insights into the world of music and audio production are always relavent, timely and accessible. In this video tutorial he shares how to make a custom Realtor filter with modulation in a way that allows just about anyone to follow along with him and successfully recreate the same results.
This one starts out with a simple sawtooth instrument already made in the Structure view of Reaktor. The end result we want is a custom Reaktor filter with modulation capabilities. So a Filter module is inserted between the sawtooth instrument and the mixer, which is routed to the main output. He chooses to use the Pro-52 filter option. This particular filter is a throwback module that is originally from the Pro-53 synth that Native Instruments released several years ago and is recognized as being a solid lowpass filter.
After some basic synth building math is explained, and a few more modulation controls are added, we end up with a synth that is rather basic that happens to have a fairly robust lowpass filter. This type of custom Reaktor filter with modulation is easy to set up and can add creative options that can change the way you use your instruments. Just how many modulation options you have, and how they function and affect the sound, is completely up to you. This is one of the greatest advantages of programming your own effects in Reaktor. The power of control and manipulation is nearly limitless once you get started!
