Heavensonearth has released Husserl, a new instrument for Reaktor 5.
According to Heavensonearth, with Husserl it takes a few seconds to make a complex pattern. Draw a pattern in one channel, copy all the controls to another channel, and change a few things. Already a complex sound, because both channels can modulate each other. And there’s 16 channels.
Either tempo clocks, MIDI notes, or other sequencers can step, gate, and play up to 16 polyphonic step-sequencers simultaneously. Each may only have 16 beats, 16 steps, and 8 repeatable phrases but, as they can modulate each other in real time, they can make any number or complex rhythms, melodies, and polyphonic textures.
A pin matrix lets each sequencer receive not only triggers, but also pitch, velocity, and duration modulations from any number of other sequencers. In step and 1-shot modes, MIDI and other sequencers can step, gate, or '1shot’ a pattern and phrase. Each sequencer can filter incoming triggers and notes in different ranges. The beat sequencer can skip incoming triggers, and also skip pattern steps, to make complex evolving patterns. Each sequencer has a chord generator, which is also modulated by the other patterns. Pitch mapping keeps all the results melodic. All controls on the panel, or subsets of the controls, can be copy/pasted between sequencers.
Pricing & Availability
A production version of Husserl will be $199, and will be a standalone product not requiring Reaktor. Reaktor users can purchase an advance version of Husserl implemented as a Reaktor instrument for $79.99. Customers are entitled to free upgrades and requests for new features.
