Overview of the Akkord Reaktor Ensemble - Part 1 - Sequencer
In this overview we will take a look at the Akkord Reaktor Ensemble that came bundled with the Electronic Instruments Volume 2 Collection!
In this video tutorial we’re taking a look at the Akkord Reaktor Ensemble. Bundled with the Electronic Instruments Volume 2 Collection for Reaktor, the Akkord is an extremely powerful chord sequencer that should not be overlooked. Not only can it be used as a solo instrument, but you can use the sequencer to trigger other Reaktor synths or even external instruments via MIDI. In this first tutorial, YouTube user Greg B covers the Akkord’s step sequencer and keyboard module.
The Akkord has some pretty nice features that are unusual in your typical step sequencer. For example, the ability to play chords! But that’s not all… You can easily transpose the sequence by selecting a new pitch or octave. Other nifty tools include the ability to change the gate time, simple copying of patterns, easily configurable loop lengths, and forward or reverse functions.
In the next tutorial, we will continue our overview of the Akkord Reaktor Ensemble by analyzing the built-in effects. If you have any work you have done using this instrument, feel free to post links to your track or any feedback in the forums or comment section below!
