The folks at Native Instruments have just released the new version of one of their flagship products, REAKTOR 6. In NI’s words this new release “makes advanced sonic experimentation more accessible than ever”.
Let’s see what’s new for Reaktor builders and fans…
* Primary and Core Macro libraries are refined for ease of use with new categories and intuitive folder structure. The Core library macros have been re-written for a more efficient use of CPU, letting you build more complex devices with a higher sound quality.
* More efficient workflows due to a to an updated interface. Expect better readability (yay!) and an easier management of wires and connections.
* For the power developer in you, new features like Table Framework, Bundles, and Scoped Buses take Reaktor 6 modules creation to a whole new level.
Modular synth buffs will love one of the main new features, Blocks. Taking its cue from the huge success of today’s analog modular synth market, Reaktor 6 includes over 30 Blocks and allows you to create the craziest modular rigs, with as many oscillators, filters, effects, modulators, and sequencers as you need. Native Instruments provided different analog flavors (that go under the name of Bento, Modern, Digilog, Boutique) and added a sort of best-of from their existing synth products (like Monark, etc.).
Excited? We are, and we will have more about Reaktor 6 soon. Price? $199/$99 for the update. For further info, please check the NI website.
