Import Your Own Samples

ReKombinator is incredibly powerful and allows you to import your own samples directly into the editor so you can mangle and mash your own sounds. It comes with 40 presets to suggest possible applications.

Grain Envelopes

You can set grain volume envelopes to create a cross-fade between overlapping grains. Attack is grain volume fade-in, release is grain volume fade-out, curve is shape of attack curve. You can also set overall volume of grain playback, which can be useful to automate and create varied volume throughout following grains.

Like Skanner for Kontakt

Skanner is one of my favorite (and woefully underrated) synths for Native Instruments' Reaktor. It mangles samples, drones and does all kinds of crazy and unexpected things to sound samples. ReKombinator is like a version of Skanner for Reaktor. If you like ambience, randomness, noise, drones, soundscapes and honestly, an amazing set of sounds... you will love this. You can import your own samples too. Also, it is way more affordable than Skanner.

Granular Goodness

Well thought out and highly useful tool for pads, fx, and general sound-mangling from the included samples and your existing sample library. Time just flies by playing with this instrument and I appreciate the humour in the design and some of the included presets.

Cool sound mangler!

Very cool experimental pads and sequences out of this thing. I don't really know what I'm half the time with it, but just loading up presets and tweaking away is amazing fun, seeing how fun down the rabbit hole you can go!

Granular playground for small money

Granular is the New Black. This instrument offers a musical way into this sound design field. A lot of different presets show the possibilities. You can tweak them to fit into your mix or you can load your own samples. The sound is somewhat retro as I like it. This is not a scientific tool for physicians but an accessible instrument for musicians.

Redesign Your Sound

SOUND QUALITY: 4; FEATURES: 5; PRESETS: 4; EASY OF USE: 4; INNOVATION: 5; VALUE FOR MONEY: 5; CONCLUSION: Very useful for sound design. A bit difficult to
learn, but once you start to control it, you'll have a lot of fun together with an interesting and productive work. A big plus is the possibility to import your samples.

Splendid Mangling

Who would have thought that another 'granular' instrument could be so different and exciting, this put a smile on my face :)

4 out of 5 Stars

At time of writing there was a missing IR from one of the presets (Rekombinator, Recycled drums III (120 bpm)). A surprising oversight imho. Anyhoo, my main interest is to import my own samples and manipulate them. I managed to figure out the basic idea of importing a sample and displaying it on the GUI, ready for manipulation without resorting to the manual. Good! :) The manual itself seems to contain all the basic information I'll need to understand the instrument fully. The presets that come with the product are quite interesting. It's a 4 out of 5 Stars from me.

Smooth, creative noise.

I love the effect you can get with this tool. ReKombinator allows such creative use of sound - in a beautifully musical way. I am a big fan of the grainy nature of the natural world and ReKombinator allows you to bring this 'noise' into electronic music production. Wonderful.
Thank you for this inspiring instrument.

Weird and Wonderful

This can really mess up some samples and create some truly inspiring things. But you can also do minor tweaks to make things sound just a little bit different. I look forward to mixing this in to my compositions.

Cool little granular sound manipulator!

I use it to deconstruct sound samples because the bast part is that i can load my own samples in which is really great.

This is a great tool if you are working with granular synthesis just give it a try it's worth it!
