Buffeater is a real-time, dynamically ordered, granular multi-effect for all versions of Reaktor 5. The effect works by capturing live audio and storing it in a temporary buffer, which allows for real-time processing of the incoming audio using granular synthesis and other methods. Buffeater allows users to take live audio and tweak elements of the sound such as time and pitch while controlling the signal flow of the effects by the order in which a user plays.
The six effects included are Stretch (a granular time and pitch-stretching effect), Tape (a varispeed-type effect that allows users to slow down/speed up effect while also altering its pitch), Slice Repeat (allows users to repeat fragments of incoming audio and re-order them on the fly), Deconstruct (tkes slices of incoming audio and randomly rearranges them in time and can also reverse them), Scratch (classic turntable-style scratch effects) and Feed Grains (a granular feedback effect that is geared for creating spatial effects similar to reverb and also to create similar effects to ring modulation).
Buffeater ($49) is now available.
