DESCRIPTION

Refractor is a synthesizer for Native Instruments Reaktor, based on Karplus Strong synthesis. Instead of using noise as the impulse this synth does use sample-wavetables. Therefore the results are much more experimental, unforeseeable and multifarious. Several delay lines, a multimode filter and special tweaks make this synth unique.

This synth was created for the KVR Developer Challenge 2016. Please vote for it if you like it:

Many thanks to the builders and sound designers here. The user library is a constant delight. I used your ensemble here (https://soundcloud.com/lenblenb/delta3) and I am very grateful for the hours of work you put into it.

Ah hah, the transport must be running in order to get any sound out of this synth.

I also have really low sound output? Am I missing something simple?

I have extremely low sound output with all provided presets using with Reaktor 5 and 6. What am I doing wrong?

Please, please, anybody!! Did Max include some example wavetables along with the .ens download? Loaded nicely into R6 but no play. I musta missed sumthing or ??

Max, you are the top soundware on DC16 of KVR audio. All others are effects to win a prize. Congratulation!

Reaktor nubie question: waveform paths as downloaded in the .ens point to C:/Users/noizy/Desktop/Refractor_Samples. Do I need to feed my own samples to make it produce or do you have the ones you developed with available?

This is really nice, thank you. If you put an event voice combiner on the gate input to the sampler module, and then a single delay on the selector input and run them both into a merger and then into the gate module your display will update with the sample sequencer. Thank you for this.

OMG, I was looking at the GUI and was like nice new R6 bunny, then I pan my eyes over to the right and read R5 you can't imagine the smile on my face right now, wow thanks for sharing this baby, a suggestion tho, you must have a humongous screen, I'd suggest you think about a compact GUI version on b-view maybe. Just saying no offense, love what I see and hear!
