The latest version of Reaktor from Native Instruments is bringing hardware modular synth elements to your computer screen.
Through a new “rack-style” Blocks feature, Reaktor 6 will allow users to build their own custom synths on the DSP environment software, with up to 30 Blocks available including Bento Box (the core part of a modular synth) and Boutique (ideal for sound shaping).
Two others are Digilog Blocks, aimed at rhythm creation and patch structuring, and All-Star which act as components of synths, while over 70 instruments can be found in the user library.
There are also a number of newer features aimed at experienced users, from the bundled wires section, which is said to make intra-level patching simpler, to the Table Framework attribute which allows scope for data sharing on the software.
