1.3.1 (Updated 1 month ago)
June 09, 2018
Reaktor 6

DESCRIPTION

Update 1.3.1 - Aug 31, 2018
- Added snapshot bank "Viscitoar" by paule
- GUI
-----
Update 1.3 - Aug 31, 2018
- Added master compression
- Changed arpeggiators, random mode added
- Added channel activity indicators
- GUI
- Added new snapshot bank, showcasing enhanced noise capacity

All to enhance industrial "feel" - make it stand apart from and complements Kantubek better (hopefully)
-----
Update 1.2 - June 26, 2018
- Sync knobs were not connected correctly, didn't actually do anything. Now affect sync phase when sync is activated. This might affect snapshots that have sync enabled.
- Effect section change - MicroSpace is out, replaced by Metal Reverb from legacy lib. I believe this is the same reverb as in Metaphysical Function. Much more space, reduced CPU load...

Enjoy

Long time ago, some friends and I entered an abandoned textile factory late at night, bringing a selection of drumsticks, mallets and a Sony field recorder. All the machinery was still there, fabric samples, logs etc. – As if all the employees had just vaporized in a split second and no one had ever noticed. We placed the recorder at one end of the production hall and started hammering away on random objects at the other end. The ambient effects on the resulting recording were epic. I wanted to re-create the sounds from that jam session in a synth that was in sync an somewhat in tune.

So here we are… a sibling of Kantubek, actually it’s predecessor. Once again, intended for cinematic endeavors. Percussive Industrial Ambience if you will. Does some odd drones and pads too but really, it’s meant for soundscapes, noisy percussion and edgy sequences.
Play this one with your fingers on the keys, keep the clock running and bring your own kick.

Zip file includes "MST_Plugin.png", to be used as Komplete/Maschine icon. On Win10, place in \Users\Public\Public documents\NI Resources\image\reaktor\[create aralsk-7 folder]\MST_plugin.png
Should be fully Komple Kontrol compatible, yell if you find any errors.

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.

Hi OreKore, thank you for your advice. I updated Reaktor and downloaded aralsk-7 again (this time version 1.2, before that I had version 1.0) and now everything works finde and looks as it´s supposed to be, too. Thanks again for this great synth. Cheers, Moe

@Paule Brno CZ is quite ordinary name/word. What about Pstruh (trout). Or try "Strc prst skrz krk." [str-cz prst skrz krk] tongue twister meaning roughly Insert finger deep into throat. :-DDD

Moritz, I would like to see a screenshot of that... it sounds really weird. As you might know I'm just a user, like you, who built a synth. However I will do what I can to try to help you, I just never heard of anything like what you're describing. The synth contains mostly factory primary modules and no core level programming by me, so I have sense the error is not directly related to the synth. I recommend you try to download it again and then try to run it directly from inside the .zip file (is posibble on Win10). Second, make sure your Reaktor is up to date, current version is 6.2.2. Keep me posted, cheers

Thanks for your fast reply OreKore. The error occurs when I run Reaktor as a plugin in Ableton live and by running it as standalone version too. I´m not using Komplete Kontrol. Changes I do on the right (the mirrored) side don´t have effects on the sound most of the time ( but sometimes they do). I use a MacBook Pro and Reaktor 6. Cheers :)

Colin - I made about 350 snapshots before curating a user bank. It's a lot of names to come up with, so I chose to pick the names from an atlas. Mostly very remote places but I included Wales because there's some pretty cool town names there... I think my favorite is Pwlmp

Thanks, Moritz. I'm a little puzzled about that graphics error you're getting. Should definitely not be like that and I'm not getting the error myself. Are you using Komplete Kontrol? Or is this happening in Reaktor standalone mode or in a DAW?

Sounds pretty nice :) But when I open it in REAKTOR I see the Synth twice. It´s like it´s getting mirrored inside of REAKTOR or of it hat opened it twice in one REAKTOR-track. I can choose different Presets simultaneously but only the left one plays and gets modulated. It looks exactly like if you have the pic of the synth on this side printed two times on one sheet of paper. Should it be like that? And, if not, can I disable it somewhere? Thanks for your help and the great Synth you made! Cheers :)

Also, is your Raektor up to date? This was built with 6.2.1 (R54)

Sascha, I don't use Ableton so I can't really help you much. Does it work for you in standalone? Have you tried other DAWs?

This synth is just excellent! Intrigued as to why one preset is named after a yn Ysgol Cymraeg! All 4 of your synths are great but this one is exceptional. Thank you
