Reaktor User Library - Optimus Prime
In this video, I show how to use Optimus Prime, an ensemble I made a few years ago and recently added to the Reaktor User Library. Optimus Prime is a dynamic glitch ensemble that allows you to turn FX on and off using MIDI notes.
There are 16 ‘slots’ that contain FX and can be triggered via MIDI. Each slot has 4 controls – FX type, MIDI trigger, a depth knob, and a knob that’s function is determined by the FX type. In addition, the knobs can be automated by means of a modulation network.
This allows you to set up effects and turn them on and off dynamically. Up to 4 effects can be active at one time – each new effect added to the chain takes audio the previous effect.
I hope you all enjoy this ensemble – please let me know if you have any suggestions!
