Grid for Reaktor

Grid is a new device for Native Instruments Reaktor. It’s a 8×8 sequencer with 2 step sequencers, LFO, Filter, delay effects and random “Glitch” control. Unfortunately, it won’t work with Reaktor Player. About $30.

“Based on an 8×8 matrix sequencer and a unique sound concept, GRID makes a great addition to your musical toolkit.” – icebreaker-audio

TOPLAPapp and GRID

TOPLAPapp and GRID from Oliver Chesler on Vimeo.

Here’s a video I make of two terrific iPhone Apps that make random digital sounds. TOPLAPapp (iTunes link) and Grid (iTunes link) are must haves for any noise nerds out there.

“TOPLAPapp is a sonic puzzle based around a virtual machine for sound synthesis. This machine only accepts a few valid instructions, and you control it by placing each command letter within a grid, along with setting some associated parameter sliders. The machine runs through the grid, following the instructions to create the output sounds, which are usually of a somewhat noisy character, hopefully interestingly so. The historical antecedents include instruction synthesis as pionneered at the Institute of Sonology in the 1970s, and the live coding movement, of modifying a running program as it acts.” – Nick Collins
