AUGMENTED SONIC REALITY

  • Flesh out your rhythmic samples into full tracks
  • Made for hands on performance – in the studio and on the stage
  • Create inspiring melodies dripping with feel – no music theory needed

A BLAST OF INSPIRATION

FLESH augments your source material with dynamic basslines, riffing melodies, throbbing pads, and more. Switch, bend, and warp your way to twisted breaks and harmonic progressions with incredible hands-on performance power. Prepare for a blast of new inspiration.

FLESH is made possible by the new REAKTOR 6 engine, and runs in REAKTOR 6 or the free REAKTOR 6 PLAYER.

MUSICAL MAGIC

Working with FLESH is easy. Load up to 12 samples and FLESH analyzes the transients and spectral profile of the sound. This information is transformed it into curves and triggers which gets sent to four audio engines for re-synthesizing new sonic material. All this happens automatically in the background. The result: Naturally dynamic riffs and grooves dripping with a feel faithful to the source material.

ANATOMY OF FLESH

SAMPLE ENGINE

Use the Sample Engine to change the sonic character of the sample itself. Make it more percussive by shortening its length, liven up static sounds with modulation, and more.

MONOSYNTH ENGINE

This synth rebuilds its wavetables based on your sample. Put simply, this engine transforms your sample into a monophonic sequence or lead.

POLYSYNTH ENGINE

This resonating granular synth transforms your input signal into chords – great for laying down a harmonic foundation. You can also stack the voices for a massive monosynth line.

SUBSYNTH ENGINE

A band-limited sub generator that creates bass frequencies from an incoming pitch signal. Choose the source from either the monosynth pitch or the polysynth pitch.

EFFECTS SECTION

Add some weirdness with this dub delay on steroids. The Effects Engine can be modulated by the curves extracted from your samples.

MODULATION PAGE

Add motion to your sound on the Mod Page. Just choose a modulation source, then crank up the impact of LFO, Envelope, and Modwheel – from subtle to radical.

PERFECT PERFORMANCE

FLESH features a streamlined control set that lets you radically change the rhythmic and tonal output of the instrument. Play rich harmonic progressions on the fly. Trigger and switch source samples and sound snapshots in real time, then tweak parameters across all engines at once – all at the drop of your finger.

A clever system of global macro controls allows for consistent and tactile live tweaking. Four main controls – Spectrum, Character, Length, Mod – let you to subtly transform a sample or tear it apart into something completely new. And the clear labels make it easy to predict what you can expect from each knob turn.

DESIGNED FOR KOMPLETE KONTROL KEYBOARDS

FLESH is the first REAKTOR Instrument designed from the ground up to get the most out of the KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series keyboards. Color-coded control octaves on Light Guide make it easy to see keyswitches – even on a dark stage. FLESH also uses the Light Guide to provide tight visual feedback, highlighting sounds and samples, and sequenced harmonies. Thanks to Native Map, parameters are perfectly pre-mapped to the eight control knobs on the KOMPLETE KONTROL keyboards. Plus, you can save presets – including samples – and recall them in real time.

ABOUT TIM EXILE

Audio maverick, technical genius and boundary-pushing performer, Tim Exile has seen his career move from performing small clubs, to big stages around the world and releasing albums on Planet Mu and Warp. For the last years, Tim has worked closely with Native Instruments to design his own set of ‘audio instruments’ including THE MOUTH and THE FINGER.

POWERED BY REAKTOR 6

FLESH was built in REAKTOR 6 – the powerhouse DSP environment at the cutting edge of electronic music for nearly two decades. REAKTOR 6 lets you take your own journey into instrument design. Start out with 70+ included instruments, plus a wealth of free devices created and shared by the REAKTOR community. Advance into rack-style modular patching using Blocks, and then step up to building custom synths, samplers, effects, and sound design tools.
