You will learn how to build a synthesizer using REAKTOR Blocks in the Rack format. By arranging and connecting the basic building blocks of a modular synthesizer you can create your own instruments.
If you have some experience already, feel free to jump straight into any section using the navigation above. For beginners, we recommend spending some time reading through the whole guide.
First take a look at the features to get an overview:
This tab in the Browser shows all installed Blocks. Drag and drop them into the Rack to build your patch.
Press the Enter key on your computer keyboard to call up the search box. Find Blocks by entering their function, family, or name.
In the Rack, each Block is represented by its panel. Tweak the controls to explore your patch.
To make a connection between two Blocks, click and drag from one port to another. This defines how the Blocks in the Rack interact.
Connections between Blocks are made using wires. A wire always connects one Block’s output port with another Block’s input port.
The IN and OUT Blocks make REAKTOR’s inputs and outputs available in the Rack.
Use these three buttons to control the visibility of ports and wires in the Rack. The button to the right shows or hides the additional Structure View.
