Sound Design Tutorial: How To Create A Delay Effect w/ Reaktor – Native Instruments

In this video tutorial focusing on programming in Native Instruments’ Reaktor, Dubspot’s sound design course designer and instructor Evan Sutton shows you how to create a delay effect in Reaktor, creating a standalone effect that you can use in Ableton Live, Logic Pro, or any other platform.

Sometimes it’s easy for us to forget that many of the tools we’re using are based on audio concepts from the physical world. In this tutorial, we’ll build on some of my previous Reaktor tutorials and explore one of the most misunderstood and under-used signal routings known to man: feedback. We’ll use this to create a single-tap delay effect in Reaktor that works great on its own, or as a starting point for many different types of DSP processors. – Evan Sutton
