MOLEKULAR, Native Instrument’s flexible, REAKTOR-based modular effects rack, offers nearly limitless flexibility and animation possibilities. In this video tutorial series, computer music guru Todd Tatnall de-mystifies MOLEKULAR and reveals its potential for sonic mayhem.

Todd starts at the beginning, with a guide on Installing and Activating the software, followed by a quick start video to get you up and running fast. Then he spends the next two videos covering the DSP section of this multi-effect plug-in. You'll explore both the Common Tools and each slot in the Modular Interface.

A video on DSP Effect Routing explains how the unlimited routing options work. The next video on Modulation demonstrates the various modulation types and how to Assign Modulators to DSP Parameters to animate your effects. The video on Macro Controls will teach you how to control several of those parameters at once.

Todd then demonstrates the Morpher, which allows you to morph DSP and modulation settings between several values. Finally, Todd explains how you can control pitch-based parameters using Pitch Quantization.

Shallow & Boring Video Manual

If one has no experience with using fx and is not inclined to wade through a written manual, then this tutorial will likely be of some help. However, it may inspire buyer's remorse given the utter lack of inspirational usage tips and shallow depth. I am very disappointed.

Response from Customer Service:

Hello and thank you for taking the time to leave us a review and share your thoughts. We appreciate it!
I am very sorry you did not like the tutorial. This explained title is the entry level tutorial to teach the features and functions of the software. I will add a customer request for a part two going over tips and tricks and in depth examples.
Kind regards

Listen Closely

All the features and effect of Molekular are covered. The sore point is that instead of a lead sound, he uses a drum beat so that the more subtle nuances are lost and many times nothing happens to the sound.

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

When I was really young, maybe 3 or 4 years old. That's when I got my first (toy) drum set and played it all the time. I was studying viola at 7, piano at 8, and drums at 10.

2. What training have you had?

In college, I received a Bachelor of Music in theory/composition from SIUE, and a Bachelor of Science in recording production and technology from MTSU. Working in big studios in Chicago after college, I learned as much if not more working as an assistant/2nd engineer, often repairing/troubleshooting problems on the fly. It better equipped me to work independently AND with others.

3. When did you get into recording?

In high school. My punk band saved all our pennies to record at an 8-track studio for $10 per hour. I was fascinated by the power of multitracking, overdubbing, mixing, etc.

4. People you have worked with/for?

I've worked with commercial music producers and talent for TV and radio commercials, many of which were national/international brands. I also worked with bands and artists in the studio, including the Frogs, Kelley Deal, James Iha, Sebastian Bach, any many others. As a tech support engineer, I've helped thousands of customers. I worked directly with several high profile customers, including John Fogerty, Bruce Swedien, Oscar Petersen, John Tesh, Andy Sturmer (Jellyfish), Greg Lisher (Camper Van Beethoven), Chris Vrenna, and engineers for Paul Simon, Wilco, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, and ICP to name a few.

Why are you so good at training people?

When I was providing technical support, my approach was not only to solve the problem, but to also listen carefully to the end-user's needs AND explain what the cause and solution of any problem was. Putting technical jargon into more relate-able terms helps. I'm also an adjunct professor at a local university, and apply the same ideology when teaching. Whether you're working with a customer or student, you have to put yourself in their shoes.
