– Two new synthesis modules
REAKTOR’s already-immense range of sound just expanded again with the addition of two powerful new synthesis modes, complementing and rounding out the full spectrum of synthesis options within REAKTOR.
– New Ensemble Content
REAKTOR 5.5 comes armed with fresh sounds and ensembles. Alongside the now-included REAKTOR Electronic Instruments 1 and 2, comes a devastating new synth from the creators of MASSIVE – Lazerbass.
– Revised Structure Editor and Audio Engine
The improvements made to the Structure editor and audio engine mean greater flexibility and more powerful control over REAKTOR.
– REWORKED DOCUMENTATION
REAKTOR 5.5 also brings reworked documentation, with the Application Reference manual (400 pages) completely rewritten to better reflect the latest improvements, updates and enhancements within this version. All materials now refer to the new user interface while the reworked Getting Started makes it even easier to join the world of REAKTOR.
Based on REAKTOR 5.5’s new “Modal Bank” module, which utilizes the possibilities of physical modeling synthesis, REAKTOR PRISM produces a dynamic and pristine sound that can be dramatically modified via internal or external sources. The result is a wide-ranging synth, equally powerful for hard basses and digital leads as organic soundscapes, percussive keys, flutes and bells.
The tone-wheel and combo organs of the 60s and 70s have long since established themselves as modern classics that no producer’s sound palette should be without. VINTAGE ORGANS brings the classic organ sounds of the past to your productions and performances today. Five legendary vintage organs have been meticulously sampled, preserving their authentic character and charm in perfect, expressive detail.
Part of the KOMPLETE instruments and effects family, VINTAGE ORGANS includes the sounds of the Hammond® B-3, C-3 and M-3 models, the Vox Continental™ II and the Farfisa® Compact, recorded in highest quality from the original instruments exclusively by Native Instruments. The Organ and Amp pages provide full control over sound through drawbars, percussion, chorus/vibrato, overdrive, rotary effect, envelopes, EQ and reverb.
