We are proud to introduce GRID II, an eight-voice synth sequencer, for Native Instruments’ Reaktor.
Unlike most sequenced instruments, that are either based on triggering individual sounds (like drum machines), or triggering different notes from one sound source (like a sequenced synthesizer), GRID II takes a hybrid approach. Its two main modes enable use as both a sequenced instrument and a played synth, though it is neither directly designed for percussion, nor melody. Though GRID II produces a wide array of electronic sound sources — from synthetic drums to morphing synths, from glitched noise to pulsing drones — the instrument wasn’t designed to be used as a tool to get a job done. GRID II was designed for discovery, for experimentation, and for creativity. This was the fundamental concept behind GRID II – that it can be whatever you make of it.
