"Digital Audio Variant Explorer" A granular dual sample player that can create mad, surprising sounds with a few tweaks. Excellent for soundscape and drone creation in Reaktor 6 (full version). Onboard is a set of 200 embedded samples taken from a selection of Flintpope's online libraries at sounds.com. LAYERED, ARPS, AUTOBAHN, MIKROPRISM, PHOTONE, PALETTE, PULSING, SUGAR, TANGLED and TEXTURAL SPACE. 85 snapshots act as a starting point for experimentation. Double click "Embedded" in the presets side-pane to get to the banks of snapshots. These are grouped under Rhythm Fields (24 Snapshots) Atmospheres (24 Snapshots) Pads & Stabs (24 Snapshots) Noise Spaces (13 Snapshots) Essentially, two samples are overlaid and manipulated individually by various controls. These are then passed through a set of global FX and if required noise (choose from 13 types) can be added to the signal too. As a further variable, Sample A can be pushed into the Sample B slot to double up. This is useful for octave splits or thickening/experimenting etc. Each bank has 12 included B variants. During live playback the sounds can be manipulated from within the GUI with the pitchbend dials, mirrored on your midi keyboard's Pitchwheel. Similarly, your midi keyboard's Modwheel is linked to Reverb mix amount and Filter Gap. Hear a creative tune made with DAVE here soundcloud.com/flintpope/dave-dark Reaktor 6 Full version required.
