REAKTOR CORE TECHNOLOGY®
An overview of REAKTOR's signal processing platform
REAKTOR 5’s highly advanced REAKTOR Core Technology® represents the largest technological advance since REAKTOR was first released a decade ago. This technology opens new dimensions in sound and flexibility. REAKTOR 5 Core Technology® allows the construction of user defined modules. This new layer of functionality affords users control over the lowest level of signal processing within REAKTOR.
THE CORE STRUCTURE
Alongside the familiar elements, such as instruments, macros and modules, REAKTOR 5 also has core cells which look slightly different than the normal modules but are integrated into the structure in a similar fashion. These core cells contain the essence of the core structure in the form of core macros and core modules - the smallest definable elements.
Users are free to design their own filters, oscillators, shapers, delays and EQ's or completely new types of modules, greatly extending REAKTOR's sonic potential. The library of core cells is continually growing and the new additions will be included in the updates that registered users can download for free.
ADVANTAGES FOR PRODUCERS
REAKTOR Core Technology® offers musicians a lot of sonic perspectives. A number of instruments designed using the Core Technology are included in the library and a lot more are on the way. Expect innovative instrument concepts as well as high-end sound quality.
ADVANTAGES FOR INSTRUMENT DESIGNERS
The core cells extend the range of functions, sound, and controllability. They can be patched together with other modules and macros within REAKTOR's structure. This allows new instruments to be constructed, even if you don't possess a deep understanding of Core Technology®. The library will be constantly expanded and other designers are also sure to share their core cells in the online User Library.
ADVANTAGES FOR DSP DESIGN
REAKTOR Core Technology® presents profound new possibilities for both DSP experts and beginners. It employs a different and a more visually intuitive concept than generic procedural programming languages such as C. This is further strengthened by the integrated run-time compiler which allows designs to be tested immediately and ensures automatic portability to all REAKTOR compliant platforms.
