How to Build a Stutter Glitch Effect in Reaktor
In this original tutorial, Salamandaranagram shares how to build a cool stutter glitch effect using Reaktor!
This Stutter Glitch effect is based upon a simple design of a Crossfade module receiving audio which is then routed directly into a Single Delay unit. This, in turn, is routed back into the Crossfade unit before hitting the main output. This set up is then duplicated so there is audio for both right and left channels. Now that the core of the stutter glitch effect is built, tempo information is introduced so we can control the delay properly within Reaktor. Once the Selector module is in place, the different tempo sync options can be added. A Multi-text tool is used to display the different tempo sync options on the main interface.
Now comes the process of making it all look nice! When you add multi-text options to the interface it can quickly become a mess. Follow the tips shared in the lesson to achieve the same clean look that Salamanderanagram ended up with. This will give you an interface with a knob that twists to change the tempo sync settings. If you prefer that MIDI actually triggers changes in the tempo sync setting, simply apply the same changes that are made in the second half of this video. It’s a simple effect to build, once you wrap your mind around how it all works, but it delivers a very complex sounding result. A perfect choice to help you on your path to learning how to create things from scratch in Reaktor!
