Product Overview

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.

MOLEKULAR Explained® is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 6 .
Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Awesome FX plugin! When I first looked at this, it was confusing as hell. After watching this and taking notes, this is WAY more powerful than i thought! You can send entire audio tracks to this plugin and process them together in key. Sounds pretty out there and cool when you begin to modulate everything I only wish he went in-depth for the different parameters and FX. I get that playing with them teaches you a lot, but understanding what it does makes it so you can dial in exactly what you need

Rated 2.0 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by from 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.
