Hi Peter, Actually, you just need to download the demo of Reaktor 5 to open the ensembles. The demo is 5.1.2 (I think) which is the one I used to create the instruments. I did not update to the latest one yet. By the way, this week, hopefully, I will post a new instrument I have been working for the last 10 months. It has an improved chorus unit but with the same principles as yours and my other instruments. Cheers, Hugo

Hello Hugo, It looks like great minds think alike Hugo. I built the chorus unit back in April 2006 but it was not until the end of July 2006 that I finally had time to study the rest of the Solina circuit schematics and come up with the oscillator and filter sections. I did go as far as making the Trumpet and Horn filters, and the Cello and Contra bass sections. I split the incoming Midi so that the bass section could be played by the left hand while the strings etc could be played by the right. I have never uploaded that version however. I have been fascinated by string machines for what seems like forever. I actually went to the trouble of constructing a hardware version of a string machine chorus unit some years ago based on what I had read about them. I think I still have it somewhere. I am very interested in the similarities with your instruments. I did download them but unfortunately my version of Reaktor is too old to open them (I lost interest in the constant Reaktor updates and the rumored flakiness of the Service center). I would really like to know how similar they are to mine. I have Enabled Private Messaging in the forum - could you perhaps send me a Private Message with some screen shots of the similar sections ? Cheers Peter

Hello Peter, I found this very interesting since I did something similar with my Multi Ensemble and Solina emulation. I worked for these two the last 2 years and they look similar to what you did here. Cheers, Hugo
