Reaktor User Library - Colorstrip by Igor Shilov
In this video, I show how to use Colorstrip, an ensemble that excels at chopping and rearranging loops by Igor Shilov, better known as Sonictwist of Twisted Tools.
Colorstrip is a loop mangler that allows you to create several different modes of playback on a single loop. These modes include pitchshifting the loop, grain size, starting position and more. You can then sequence the playback modes to create a very glitchy effect.
Although not as advanced, in many ways the interface and design of Colorstrip is similar to the commercial ensembles released by Twisted Tools. Many of the controls exist in an updated form in ensembles such as Ultraloop. The interface is designed to allow for copy/pasting of elements, a rare feature in Reaktor ensembles, and one that is very useful here since there are many controls.
