Reaktor 6

DESCRIPTION

Mikroprism Flintpope Mod. Now updated to fix tuning issues.

When I first started messing about with Reaktor 6 I wrote a set of 24 presets for Mikroprism as I was attracted to its ability to swing from clean realism to dirty synthesis and many shades in between.

I have revisited the instrument and done my own mod to reveal some of the hidden extras inside the box, including all the Macro Control Destinations and control over the LFO shape.

I also decided to write 50 new presets that range from amped-up rock guitars, via evolving mallets right through to ambient wisps of sound.

While I was there I also changed the look of the GUI a little. Why? Because I’m a tweaker… and I like the sort of retro stereo-unit look.

View A is laid-out much as the original while View B reveals all the MC Destinations for greater sound design flexibility.

Open up the instrument in Reaktor 6 then double-click the “Embedded” list in the presets (snapshots) side pane or use the drop-down at the top of the GUI.

NOTE. If asked to authenticate (or run in demo mode) hit the link in the next paragraph and get Komplete Start (free) which will sort it out.

A huge shout-out to all the original designers who made this really subtle, complex, and expressive instrument back in 2010. The original MIKROPRISM is available here: https://www.native-instruments.com/en/products/komplete/synths/mikro-prism/

29 Oct 2020 I added a tuning dial and a fine tune dial to the GUI and retuned all the presets to Concert Pitch, apart from a couple of really complex sounds that wouldn't behave! Thanks to Bart van der Burg for pointing out the tuning issues.

Never got on well with Prism or the Micro but am loving this. Thanks for your insight.

Catman, hi it's not all done in one take but a set of six presets overlaid in Ableton. Glad you like the sounds.

@ Nick, there are some adjusted (to your mod) Prism snaps and a bg with bright eyefriendly matrix on view B. @ David, it isn't a sampler - It's a synth.

Nick, nice work! Lovely sound sample too, very musical IMHO. Did you do that as a single take? I.e. you got the instrument to make all those changes seamlessly? Thanks!
