Using and Creating Reaktor Sample Maps
Many of the things people use Reaktor for require a bit of experimentation and research before getting the most out of the feature or function in question. Using and creating Reaktor sample maps definitely falls under this umbrella. For those who are accustomed to producing sample packs for retail situations are probably more capable than most when it comes to this particular topic. But for the majority of those interested, it needs to be explained. Luckily we found this great little video tutorial sharing how to get through this step-by-step!
This begins with a brief explanation of how the Reaktor sample maps are used and can be accessed within an ensemble. It quickly moves into how to add a sample of your own. Once added, it is possible to assign the sound to either a specific note or across a region of notes. To view the waveform of the sample you have just added, it’s as simple as clicking on the waveform button. This is where you can adjust start and end points, etc. To return to the default view click the Map button.
Next, how to save your Reaktor sample maps is covered. You can, of course, use the Save As feature and it will save everything within the ensemble as you have just arranged it. But, if you prefer to have your sample maps saved externally with the sample embedded in them, then there is a very easy advanced option you can use. There are several ways to save and export your data and sounds, and one of them is Export Including Audio Data. This is a great option for when you plan on revisiting specific sounds and sample map in other projects.
