Reaktor is great, but one thing that i dont like about it is the built in sample management, you have to create these ‘sample maps’ to use your own samples but the UI for it is a bit rubbish, like an awful version of kontakt. so i built a tool to generate map files automatically.
I’ve built a new version in Java which is tested and working on both Windows and OSX. You can download the app here.
I’ll put the source up soon when I get a spare minute.
comments, suggestions, modifications are all welcome.
If you are wondering how to run a .jar file then you will need to first download and install java then you should then be able to just double-click the .jar file. If for some reason that doesnt work you can ‘Open With…’ and then find where java is installed, somewhere like : C:/Program Files/Java/jre1.6.0_07/bin and choose the ‘javaw.exe’ program.

Now I need to think of ideas for some more. Any suggestions are welcome. (FM, sample playing / manipulation, control logic….anything..)
Part 2 of my Bidule Tutorials is now ready. This one carries on where the first one left off and introduces an LFO, a better Oscillator section, techniques for keeping your work organized and useful utilities that can be re-used in a variety of situations.
