REAKTOR PRISM is a highly playable, responsive polyphonic instrument with an unconventional sound. 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. This introduction video provides an overlook of this new Reaktor instrument. It also gives a short glimpse into the basic principles of modal synthesis, its underlying structure.
