Flintpope Pulsar Is A Fun, Sample-Layer Synth For NI Reaktor 6

Pulsar for Reaktor 6 is designed to create interesting soundscapes and experimental atmospheres and much more. It's also cheap as chips for what it can do.  

Flintpope has been working on this latest instrument since May 2019. That's a long time for him (Nick Dwyer)! ;)

It's finally ready to play with and get your sound design hands dirty in. He tells us it doesn't only sound good, but is also fun.

So, how exactly does Pulsar work and why is it so good? Any two samples in banks A and B are overlaid; this gives a possibility of over 16000 possible combinations of sounds.They are then routed via an LFO (LFO 1) and various FX. LFO 1 can modulate a set of the FX parameters to make the sounds move and develop, and to richen things further the samples can also modulate each other if required.

So far so good, but then it gets more interesting as a second LFO (LFO 2) can then modulate LFO 1 for even more movement. And why stop there? LFO 1 can also modulate LFO 2 for a new level of sound morphing that can create unpredictable results.

PULSAR comes with 60 presets in 3 banks accessed by double clicking “Embedded” in Reaktor’s side pane. PULSAR requires the full version of Reaktor 6.3.1 (R6). Reaktor Player is not supported.

PULSAR lends itself to soundscapes and experimental atmospheres and the embedded banks reflect this.

Price: £17.99 GBP
