Use Reaktor To Turn A Sponge Into A Drum Machine

Mekarer, who may be the MacGyver of the music world, has turned a sponge into a snare drum, using a guitar pickup and a piece of string:

Here’s his English explanation:

“I use Reaktor to translate the signal with its amplitube to snare drums. Each punch, with sound a snare drum (not the same snare all the time, it changes after every puch) and it has a the amplitude of the punch. It is very sensitive and there are some great stuff I can do with the Reaktor, like setting the dynamic range.”
