the slowest the sequencers will go is 1 step per bar, but you can use a gate sequencer like this to produce 1 gate every other bar:
Ah right, I kinda got to that conclusion as well after some trial and error.
Thanks for the reply!

Working on a new block: Mux / Demux —> interleave up to 8 control, pitch or gate signals onto a single audio signal. Used here to connect 2 instances of Reaktor inside Maschine..

could that in theory be used to say out from one blocks rack, in to vst fx, in to second blocks rack?

Yes, but you can't put anything between the instrument and the VST effect, here is the same thing using Logic..

I’ve been involved in beta-testing the new TOYBOX collection:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nWA5apWA99o

I stepped away from Blocks a while ago as I couldn’t be bothered with the annoying GUI arrangement stuff, but the Rack mode has made it a lot less clunky to actually build things quickly, and the ability to fix your blocks in position really appeals to me.

The TOYBOX Audio collection has a load of the things you’d expect from a modular component collection (oscillators, filters, sequencers, delays, reverbs, vocoders, maths devices) with some additional secret spicey-sauces I’ve not seen anywhere before including:

- ModPad (Designers Pack); inspired by the old Korg Kaoss pads - recordable puck movement which can convert the positional data into areas, XY values or corner values. Can playback your recorded puck movements at audio rate. And it will hook into TouchOSC on your mobile device.

- Multi Effects (Designers pack); an effect module with a hidden (but accessible if you really want) modular backend containing reverbs, delays, comb filters, pitch shifters.. with a carefully tuned morphing preset front end.

- Multi-Breakpoint Envelopes (FloorShakers Pack); as the name describes, many breakpoints, snappable, curve modulation, and will actually run as an oscillator in the right mode.

- Bit Shifter (free pack); I’m a sucker for just brutalising a signal, and that’s what this does, for both control signals and audio signals - bit reduction, sequencer mangling, messed-up distortions, pitch-tracked bit-shifting. it’s not a gentle or subtle effect.

- Macro Presets (free pack); this doesn’t make any audio, but I have found it really useful for managing local presets for any noise-making racks. assign up to 8 values to anything in the patch, each MacroPreset position can hold different values for each of the 8 out values.

- FM Synth (Synth Pack); this has a really interestingly powerful FM algorithm morphing function. Create your bespoke FM routing matrices, and morph between them! Had a LOT of fun with this. Not forgetting the well-considered internal modulation system either.

- Synth Pack; this whole pack is pretty good to be honest. Complete synth blocks with oscillators, filters (some have an included Low Pass Gate filter), envelopes, LFO and extensive internal modulation possibilities. And they all come with a bounty of usable presets.

I’d recommend everyone get the Free Pack and exploring the sequencers and Mini and regular Oscillators as a start.

I don’t see the Synth pack you mention on their site, is it not available?

Yes I’d like to know this too? If I buy the everything bundle now will I get the additional synth pack once released?

Looks like it’ll be reposted sometime soon. The other lectures can be played again. I was hoping to catch the lecture too.
