In this video we see what some of the new Reaktor 6 Blocks modules can do when combined with your Eurorack modular synth.
The patch consists of several Bento Box 8 Steps sequencers controlling an Eurorack synth. All sequencing and modulation is coming from Reaktor Blocks, except for a littble bit of human interaction.
Maschine also gets in on the action with bass drum, hi-hats, and rim shot. Echo and reverb added in Ableton Live.
The interface between the modular and Reaktor is the Expert Sleepers ES-3 module which we reviewed way back as one of the first eurorack videos we did!
In Reaktor, five Bento Box 8 Steps sequencers send their pitch, gate, and velocity signals out to the Eurorack synth via the ES-3, and additionally disturb each other in interesting ways by cross-modulation of the the global sequencer parameters (DIRECTION, STEPS, OFFSET).
The sequencers are clocked and reset from three Util Note In Blocks (we didn't have the clock divider ready when I shot this video).
A Bento Box Env is providing additional modulation via the ES-3.
Voice 1: e350 going into an Optodist and a Toppobrillo Multifilter, with some broken echo added by a Phonogene. Pitch and wavetable position controlled by 8 Steps sequencers. The Bento Box Env is controlling the Gain on the Optodist.
Voice 2: Res-4 pinged directly from 8 Steps sequencer (its variable gate length is handy for this). Pitch and glide are provided by another sequencer.
Voice 3: Cyclebox II in mode 0000, going into two chained channels on the QMMG, struck by an 8 Steps sequencer (again, its variable gate length comes in handy). Pitch and IFM index controlled by 8 Steps sequencers.
