Flintpope has announced the release of Hornfish, a new free NI Reaktor instrument for creating sound pads and ambiences.
Hornfish is a drag and drop granular sample player that lets you create surprising sounds via randomising playback parameters on the fly. These parameters are changed via mouse drag and/or buttons.
Long interesting samples (evolving pads for example) result in far better variations than short dull ones (kicks and snares for example).
There is a set of 10 bundled samples and 12 presets to demonstrate some possibilities with this instrument. Use the drop-down menu to access the presets or double click “Embedded” in the presets side-pane.
Hornfish can be downloaded and used for free, but you may consider offering a donation towards the cost of making it by not putting a zero in the price box. Or, you could consider a regular small donation for as little as a dollar a month by visiting Flintpope’s Patreon.
