Flintpope released this week Drumbox, a new instrument for Reaktor 6. Drumbox is not available for free but you can purchase it with for a low price.
DRUMBOX is a Reaktor device that can provide a quick sketchbook for making beats or as an improvisational live instrument as part of a performance set-up. All the sounds are accessible over a short keyboard range on midi channel one and it is easy to write new material.
The core of DRUMBOX is a bank of 128 Flintpope original tempo-synced drumloops that can be played out live as they are or treated with the various FX and stutter dials detailed below. Drumloop styles range from sparse funky live kits through housey ambiences, to lo-fi shufflebeats to brutally fried electronic mash-ups. Simply trigger playback with the spacebar or play arrow at top of Reaktor. Change tempo there too.
Added to this are 128 Flintpope pads and atmospheric sounds mapped over one octave to add texture. Owners of previous Flintpope libraries won’t have heard these already as they’ve been made specially for this release. There is also a 4-wave synth bass/lead and a drumkit to add more detail to the loops or to write NEW loops in your DAW.
Drumbox is available now for purchase for the introductory price of £4.99 GBP and works only with Reaktor 6 (full version). More content for this instrument will be announced soon (new drum banks, pads…)
