Reaktor Tips has released version 2.0 of Loupe, a Reaktor ensemble that assigns freeform sections of a sample to different MIDI notes and allows them to be pitched, reversed, resized, filtered and enveloped individually. The incoming MIDI notes do not repitch the sample directly, but you can manually adjust each slice / key's tuning to create more complex melodic variation out of your source sample.
This second major version of Loupe adds auto-slicing, a granular delay mode to apply slice parameters to live audio, note hold, fine slice position and length controls, a new skin and a number of small bug fixes and workflow improvements.
Loupe 2 is available for instant purchase and download at Reaktor Tips for $15.
Loupe requires a full working installation of Reaktor 5.8 or better, and will not run with just Reaktor Player.
