Version 1.4

All LFO's except INT - LFO Sync: The SYNC knob can now be A/B modulated.
All Oscillators: The FINE knob can now be A/B modulated.
SEQ - PQ: Font colors for the note selectors. White for on and red for off.
MOD - VCA Squad: Knobs for the VCA's.

SEQ - 8 STP: 8 step sequencer. Each step has A/B modulation. The sequencer can be controlled manually as well. The step sequencer and the manual sequencer have their own direct outs.
SEQ - CLK Squad: 4 output clock divider up to 128 divisions of the incoming gate per channel. An integrated 4 step sequencer has its own clock divider to mix the four outputs to a Mix output.
MOD - AD Squad: 4 AD envelope generators in one block. All four with A/B modulation.
MOD - LFO DUO: Two multi wave LFO's (MOD - LFO MW) in one block with integrated cross fader and attenuverter.
OSC - PLS SAW DUO: Two pulse to saw oscillators that can be unison detuned with one knob (FINE). The sync between the master (Pulse Oscillator 1) and the slave oscillators can be controlled with the Sync knob. There is a (mono) mix output and each oscillator has its own direct out (for a stereo setup).

Version 1.3

SEQ - RNG Gate. Probability gates synced with incoming gate. Additional Boolean gates.
MOD - VCA Squad. Quad VCA with mix output.
SEQ - PQ. This is a mod on the factory's Digilog QUANT pitch quantizer block. The block has 4 inputs that are XY mixed. The pitch output is unipolar instead of bipolar for QUANT.
FX - DLY FBK S. Stereo feedback delay.
SEQ - MOD Squad. 4 step sequencer, mixer and modulator. 4 inputs are mixed in sequence. Each input (step) has its own A/B modulate-able knob.

Version 1.2

AMP - VCA Clean and AMP - VCA SAT. The shadow of the A/B modulation of the GAIN knob caused issues when pressing the buttons (INT/EXT and LIN/EXP) right below the button. This issue has been resolved by Philippe Loiseau and taken care of in this update.

MOD - SW Gate. Conditional gate activated cross fader with slew.
MOD - CV Sel. Selects 1 out of 4 CV inputs per channel (A and B). Selectable attenuverter per channel (A/B).
FLT - Curtish. This is the NI Pro-52 filter in a Block wrapper.
MOD - FLD. Wavefolders from OSC - FLD with added bias control.
FX - DLY FBK. Mono feedback delay.
MOD - AM OP. 3 AM modes, 2 AM inputs and multiple cross modulations possible. AM OP can be used as VCA / XF and offset as well in different patching approaches.
SEQ - BOOL Gate - 2 pairs of gate input are sent to Boolean tests and the result is output to a direct gate and a second test between the results of the Boolean test of each gate pair. All in all, 4 gate inputs deliver 21 gate outputs.
SEQ - Anti Gate. A gate combiner of 4 gates (plus manual gate). Each of the 4 incoming gate can be turned negative before the four gates plus manual gate are summed (and clipped) together to one gate output. Boolean outputs of the 4 incoming gates are available as well.

Version 1.1

INT - P&G. Replaced Pitch and Gate MIDI in macros with the MIDI macros found in the factory's Util Note In to resolve an issue that not all outgoing gates were picked up by other blocks like MOD - ADSR or the factory's West Coast LPG. In addition, a MIDI channel selector is added to the Block.

OSC - FM OP. This is a simple sine oscillator that has an FM input and three FM modes. This block is designed to have a simple FM source that can easily be placed in serial to create more sophisticated FM structures. Two of these oscillators have been used in the 3 OSC and 1 VCA patch as FM input for the main oscillator and the filter. The oscillator can be used as a standalone sine as well.

Version 1.0

Envelope: 4
ADSR, AHD, Tempo Synced AHD, Envelope Follower
Filters: 15
Linear and Non-Linear filters from the ZDF filter core library in a block wrapper.
LFO: 6
Tempo and transport synced LFO, Multi wave LFO, Random number LFO etc.
Mixing: 8
Mixing tools like Crossfader, Adjustable toggle switch, Stereo XY mixer, Stereo image and Pan. 2 VCA's
Modulation: 9
Shaper, Saturator, Comparator, S&H, CV mixer etc.
Oscillator: 2
A Multiwave oscillator with synced Sub oscillator and a Fold oscillator.
Noise: 2
A stereo SC Dust II generator and a XY controllable 4 Noise source.
Utilities: 5
Pitch & Gate, Tempo and Transport synced clock with ramp output. DC and Anti Alias filter, Converter / Rectifier and a Signal meter.

Credit Roll:
Everyone who dares to take the plunge into the Reaktor realm and post their creations in the Library.
Special thanks to:
Michael Hetrick - For the waveshape algorithms used in the Fold Oscillator (OSC - FLD). For the Flip Pan concept. KNBSTRB8 contains a slight mod on the Flip Pan (linear panning instead of parabolic to avoid signals >1 at hard pans). For the LFSR and SC Gray Noise generators used on the XY Noise block, which is a mod on Euro Reakts Multi Noise. And last but not least for the SC Dust II generator that is used in the Stereo Dust (OSC - Dust S) generator. The Stereo Dust generator is based on the Euro Reakt block Dust.
Mitch Burton - For the ratio calculation parts in Clock DeLuxe that are used in CLK Sync.
Efflam le Bivic - For the GUI kits and background kits. So impressive, that I was scared to use them at first.
Catman Dude - For pointing out the issue with INT - P&G (at the KNBSTRB8 Paches entry).
Philippe Loiseau - For resolving the click issues with the VCA Clean and VCA SAT Blocks.

Seing your update, funny that I also made the FINE A/B mods, but forgot it in some folder .... with also a more readable SEQ-PQ notes. Too many good things.

Philippe, Many thanks for the deep research. Both VCA's are updated in the 1.2 update with the shorter shadows that do not overlap.

Hi Niels, great again ! Concerning the Int/Exp buttons click problems we talk about in your Patches page, it seems to be the Mod A/B Shadow height which is too big. Set it height to 75 (against 88) and it seems to be OK for me now.

This collection and other User Blocks in the Reaktor User Library are .ism files that only work on the full version of Reaktor 6. Reaktor player only works with .ens files.

Janusz, Indeed the download is not installed via the Native Instruments portal. The download is a zipped file of the Blocks, sorted in directory's. Installation is done as follows: 1. Find the directory where the other Reaktor Blocks are installed on your computer. 2. Unzip the downloaded ZIP file to that directory. 3. Next time you start using Reaktor Blocks, the KNBSTRB8 folder should be along with the folders of the blocks you got with Reaktor.
