Using NOD-E By Antonio Blanca
In this video, I show how to use NOD-E by Antonio Blanca. Antonio is a very talented builder who just joined the team over at Twisted Tools.
NOD-E is a fantastic little tool that began life as a Lemur template. Unfortunately, the documentation is a little slim, as Antonio is not a native English speaker, leaving us to figure out exactly what is going on. Fortunately, the design is well thought out and mostly very easy to understand with a little effort.
Using a variety of parameters, the user controls the movement of 8 boxes in an XY grid. The boxes trigger MIDI notes depending on the parameters you set. Since NOD-E does not make any sound itself, you must connect a synth to receive these MIDI notes (by default the NOD-E.ens file loads up a copy of Steampipe 2 to do the honors). At the end of the video, I show how you can replace Steampipe with any Reaktor instrument. You could also use a DAW to route the MIDI to a synth outside of Reaktor.
