Open Reaktor ensemble

November 18, 2011 | 5:31 pm

Hey everyone. Is there some command I can send to the [vst~] object that will allow me to open a particular Reaktor ensemble? I have been hacking away at it, and I haven’t found anything yet. Thanks.

I believe I wrestled with this issue too. I think if you save an
fxp and then load it, it will restore the ensemble. I have a
handy Max/Reaktor wrapper that I can post when I get home.

The [GenericVST] object that’s part of my Live Keyboard Rig Manager library can do this easily.

For example, the patch below demonstrates this (it’s all you need if you put my library in your search path).

This patch instantiates a Reaktor VST and tries to load the settings called foo. Those settings obviously won’t exist the first time around.

Double-click on the GenericVST object to open it in presentation mode. There you will find a button called Edit. Click that to open the Reaktor GUI. Then just load in whatever ensemble you want, change the parameters as desired.
Finally, click the "Save settings" button in that presentation mode object to save the current parameters to "foo".

Next time you open that patch, it will just work.

You can download the current snapshot of my library (yeah, it’s free) at the bottom of

What do you mean, "save an fxp?"

Ohhhh nevermind. Thanks!

nice elegant look there! And a few patching tricks I will shamelessly borrow ;)

Yeah, I too liked the way he put together that graphic reaktor panel and I’m going to see how I can leverage that approach into my library as well to make it look prettier too.
