Stephan Becker made some truly great Reaktor synths.
Unfortunately, two of the best of them, Proton 7 and Concept X, at some point in Reaktor revision history get broken and Stephan never fix them.
This was a true shame, because they're very complex machines capable of great sounds.
Although I am a noob in Reaktor, I've managed to fix them.
(For the curious/technical: all the Receive modules needed to have "Enable Switch Off" checked)

This is Concept X version 3. It is, like Proton 7, inspired by Massive, but more oriented towards FM sounds. It includes:

4 wavetable operators, with a 4x4 FM matrix
1 multimode filter
a shaper multimode section
a sofisticated modulation section including:
4 Envelopes
4 LFOs (multiwave) that can be switched to step sequencers or "performances"
a FX section including reverb, delay, chorus, phaser, flanger, crusher and EQ (three of them can be stacked)

The real power of Concept X is the fact that almost all the synth parameters can be modulated by the modulation section (even the modulation sources themselves!).
I've mapped 6 controllers (3 to 8) to the Komplete Kontrol keyboards knobs (cc 14 to 19); other than that, the synth is exactly how Stephan built it.
The snapshots are the original ones.

(solved) you have to click on the text of the knob

@ivano when i try to move a knob, it only changes the modulation around it, but not the knob itself. do you know how to fix this?

@Ivano Locci I'm on 6.3 on the Mac version. The latest version of Concept X_V3.ens that Stephan Becker uploaded 10 years ago works fine.

@John Smith: you mean the original version? which version of Reaktor you have?

I'm confused... I just loaded up conceptX v3 and it seems to be working fine.

Always loved this synth Ivano. Had a fantastic overdrive lead guitar preset. Thanks for reviving it for us all.
