Meet DAVE, An Affordable New Reaktor Instrument From Flintpope

Flintpope's new granular dual sample player is out now - and it costs under £10.

DAVE, a new Reaktor instrument from Flintpope, is a granular dual sample player that can create mad, surprising sounds with a few tweaks, and some very good sounds with a bit of diligence. Onboard is a set of 200 embedded samples taken from a selection of Flintpope's online libraries at sounds.com; namely LAYERED, ARPS, AUTOBAHN, MIKROPRISM, PHOTONE, PALETTE, PULSING, SUGAR, TANGLED and TEXTURAL SPACE. This will hopefully help you create a range of out-there sounds; 85 snapshots act as a starting point for experimentation.

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 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. 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.
