Making a Step Sequencer with Reaktor Part 1 of 2
In this video tutorial, salamanderanagram walks us through the process if creating a useful step sequencer in Reaktor!
Though Reaktor comes with several ensembles you can use to sequence sounds, there may be times when you just want something simple to set your sounds in motion. This cool little step sequencer is handy, lightweight and not too difficult to make. Once you’ve finished recreating yourself, you can experiment with adding more features. And in the next installment of this short series, we will look at what it takes to add the ability to glide to a pattern in this step sequencer. But before we head down that road, let’s check out how this ensemble is made!
If you have been keeping up with all of our tutorials, you probably remember a recent lesson on how to make an arpeggiator. This tutorial starts out with using the same clock source that was built for that lesson. It also helps to gain a better understanding how the clock source is actually working. The event table is set up to handle 16 steps, but you can certainly modify this for your own personal needs. The steps are assigned to modulate the pitch of an oscillator, but again you can set yours up to control whatever parameter you like. One of the best things about this cool little ensemble is the ability to quickly draw in your steps. A very easy way to bring your sounds to life!
