Using Reaktor's Send and Receive Modules
Welcome to this weeks original tutorial for Native Instrument’s Reaktor. In this video, Salamanderanagram designs and creates a simple modulation system using the send and receive modules that come with Reaktor.
Using the send and receive modules you can create extremely flexible signal paths and/or modulation networks. This allows you to become more creative with the way you work, thus, opening up new way in which you can work with your synths and Reaktor ensembles.
This ensemble is a fairly quick build. There are only a few modules that are needed. Most of the time is spent adjusting the values of the given parameters, and rearranging the design of the interface.
Make sure that you set the IC Send to always active. That way the numeric read out will work! However, to make it work properly there is a little bit of math involved. In order to have the input knob properly display the receive channel we must set up a little equation that takes the input value and subtracts 1, then divides by the max value, and then subtracts from one. If you’re confused, don’t worry. Just watch the video and you can clearly see what is happening!
In next weeks video, Salamanderanagram will demonstrate how we can use this method to create an FM synth with several different routing matrixes to choose from.
We hope that you found this tutorial useful. Let us know if you have any questions or feedback. We are always looking for tutorials ideas. Until next time, cheers!
