Reaktor User Library - GRIP by Uwe Hoenig
In this video, I showcase GRIP, a relatively new ensemble from the Reaktor User Library, by Uwe Hoenig (the author of Travelizer, an ensemble that comes with Reaktor).
GRIP is based around Grain Cloud modules and can be a little complex for those who are used to subtractive synthesis. You can load in your own samples (or even entire sample maps), and have a ton of control over how they are played back.
By layering “grains” (small snippets of audio) on top of each other, you can transform sounds into lush soundscapes or create very glitchy effects and drums.
GRIP has a huge modulation network that allows every important parameter to be controlled by multiple sources. This allows you to create dynamic and exciting sounds very easily.
