|Notes||FOR THOSE WHO PLAY |
Whatever music you make, the diverse Factory and User Libraries in REAKTOR 6 are ready to deliver instant inspiration. A huge and ever-growing library of instruments, samplers, effects and sound design tools will expand your sonic vocabulary exponentially. Professional presets get you creating immediately. And REAKTOR 6 runs standalone or as a VST/AU plug-in with your favorite DAW.
REAKTOR’s factory library features over 70 ready-to-use instruments and effects – a unique collection of synthesizers, legacy effects, groove boxes, sample transformers, sequenced synths, and sequencers to explore. From Skrewell and Spiral to Newscool and Lazerbass, every instrument is made with REAKTOR’s trademark sound quality. And once unlocked, each and every instrument is even fully editable and patchable.
The REAKTOR User Library is where the REAKTOR community shares their creations – over 4,000 and counting. Builders are constantly creating and uploading devices like drum machines, filters, delays and distortions – infinite variety for your imagination to play with. You’ll even find emulations of classic synths, tape echoes, and innovative additive synthesizers. The User Library is also the place to share your Blocks patches – get feedback from a vibrant, inspired community of sonic explorers who share your passion for musical experimentation.
PRIMARY AND CORE STRUCTURES
REAKTOR is a deeply powerful, highly-advanced platform for building any synth, effect, and sound design tool imaginable. From two structural levels – Core and Primary – the entire spectrum of device development opens to you.
Primary is the structural top-level, using a graphical signal flow paradigm with step-by-step event processing. It’s where all parameters, events, MIDI and OSC data are handled. Sound is created on Primary level using Primary Macros and Modules. Core is the deepest structural level, featuring a powerful runtime machine code audio compiler. Perfect for custom DSP algorithms, Core has its own comprehensive library of best-in-class DSP components.
YOUR SONIC TOOLKIT
Use REAKTOR’s included Primary and Core Macro libraries to design anything from simple synthesizers and real-time live performance tools to compositional systems and advanced granular processors. This comprehensive set of best-in-class DSP components empowers builders with the raw materials to create custom sound-generating systems from the ground up. Or go one step further and use them as a starting point for building or customizing your own macros.
NEW POWER FEATURES
Table framework allows flexible and efficient sharing of data across structures, including passing the data from Primary to Core. This will enable builders to create new kinds of creative sample players. Long-awaited language feature additions in Core make building much more convenient. Scoped Buses allow a wire-less connection across multiple Core structure levels. Bundles are a new connection type for REAKTOR Core, which allow several connection wires to be bundled into one for cleaner, more efficient building
BUILDING FOR BLOCKS
Building for Blocks is open to all REAKTOR users. Modify existing Blocks and share them with the community. Templates with pre-configured GUI elements are available in the User Library. Use them to create your own Blocks with custom interfaces and contribute to this exciting new way to patch in REAKTOR. The Blocks framework ensures all of your creations will integrate perfectly into the current system, so you can immediately test your creations within a full Blocks patch.
REAKTOR 6 BLOCKS
Blocks combine the freedom and flexibility of modular patching with the trademark DSP quality of REAKTOR. Over 30 feature-rich Blocks are included, offering limitless inspiration and sonic creativity. Load as many oscillators, filters, effects, modulators, and sequencers as you need to patch your dream modular rig. Read on to get the details on the full range of Blocks.
REAKTOR 6 ships with 14 patches designed by modular synthesizer experts. The patches range from generative sound machines and classic subtractive synths to experimental devices only possible on a modular system. Each is an incredible synth on its own, giving you the flexibility and unrivaled power of Blocks in an instantly playable package.
Ready for use with KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series keyboards and MASCHINE, these patches are the perfect starting points from which to modify and tweak until you’ve designed your own custom synth.
