Reaktor Snap Isolate Tutorial
Reaktor is so incredible open to tweaking that sometimes you find a cool setting for one parameter that you really want to use, but the rest of the snapshot isn’t really working for you. Other times you may find yourself wanting to keep one or more settings the same everything you load an instance of a certain instrument or effect. Either way, this tutorial should help you out by showing you how to set this solution up in just a few seconds!
As you probably already know there are several places to go looking if you want to make changes to the settings that make an instrument work in Reaktor. The shortest route, or the quickest way rather, to this particular feature is by simply right-clicking in the knob or slider you want to isolate. You should now see a small pop-up menu, you want to click on the Properties option at the bottom of that window. This will open the right-hand sidebar, showing you the Properties panel. Under the Snapshots section you will want to now check the box that reads Snap Isolate. Now, even if you load a different snapshot, this particular parameter will remain at the same setting.
Making menu options and on/off toggle options stay on the same setting is a bit more complicated. You will actually need to work in Structure view to get it done. Luckily, you can use a right-click shortcut again to find what you’re looking for. Right-click on the parameter and then select the Show in Structure in Second Pane option. This will open up a split screen view, showing you both the default instrument panel view and the structure view so you can easily navigate this task. Since this structure view is relevant to the parameter you already selected, you simply need to find the module(s) labeled Snap Value, click on it and then check the Snap Isolate box on the Properties panel in the left-hand sidebar, as shown in the previous example. This should keep these settings in place for you now!
