These Sequencer Segments, in conjunction with the Sum blocks, are insane! Thanks for the examples, lovely stuff.
Great thanks! :) The Sequencer Segments block is influenced by the Intellijel Metropolis Eurorack Sequencer:

With a bunch of extra repeat modes. Daisy chained together you can get any length of steps.

Also just uploaded a couple of new Nano Blocks to the Reaktor User Library:

https://www.native-instruments.com/en/r ... how/14163/

The block applies a condition for each step of the incoming position signal, the step will only play if that condition is met, the block was inspired by the conditional triggers of the Elektron sequencers. There are 2 versions of the block, one for the Nano Pack and one for the Nano Pack Community Edition.

Added a similar 'Roll' block:

Added another Nano block to the user library 'Time Shift':

https://www.native-instruments.com/en/r ... how/14177/

The incoming position signal is modified by shifting the position of each step forward or backward in time.

There are 2 versions of the block, one for the Toybox Nano Pack 2 and one that's a 'User Block' that will work with the free Nano Pack Community Edition.

These 3 blocks all modify the position signal that drives the nano sequencers:
  • 'Roll' adds clusters and rolls of notes
  • 'Time Shift' shifts the position of each step in time
  • 'Conditional' plays each step only if a condition is met

Uploaded a new free Nano block to the User Library, the 'Nano Octivider Block', an analog 'octivider' guitar pedal style effect. It's a great starting point for 'guitar synth' racks:

We just posted a new FREE Nano Block: Sample Player Lofi - A gritty lofi sample player, with the sound of an 80's hardware sampler. There are additional ports available from Reaktor's structure view to control the clock rate, jitter and saturation level of the the simulated DAC. Download it here:

https://www.native-instruments.com/en/r ... eid=UNIQID

There's an example ensemble included, you can add your own samples using Reaktor's sample map editor (small waveform button at the top of the Reaktor window).

Just uploaded a new Nano Block to the user library: Lofi DAC. The block simulates the digital to analog convertor of a vintage sampler. Useful for lofi, gritty sounds and vintage sampler tones. An example ensemble is included. Grab it for free from here: https://www.native-instruments.com/en/r ... how/14315/

FYI, we are also running a 40% off Black Friday sale on the toybox site: https://www.toyboxaudio.com

Highly recommend Nano Pack 2, bought it this week, it's on 40% discount at the mo & provides tons of blocks, which keep getting added to over time. Toys for grown ups :tu:

The Designers Pack is great for synthesis, the Sampling Pack is obviously good if you want to manipulate samples, the Nano Pack is a very deep sound design tool too. Don't forget to grab all the free packs on the site also.
