DESCRIPTION

Concept X is a four oscillator polyphonic wave table-synthesizer with DX-7-style phase modulation. This greatly increases its sonic capabilities far beyond the borders of classic wave table- or fm-synthesis. It’s also equipped with a multimode filter for subtractive synthesis. The sounds range from classic wave table or fm timbres to very complex textures or virtual analogue sounds, even pulse width modulation is possible. To spice up the sound, it has an overdrive and sample rate & bit reducer effect, and last but not least two multi-effect units.

Comes with 81 snaps and a user manual.

I must be the only person not to like the GUI. I'm finding the graphics too flat and the layout too small but this is the only downside I can come up with so far. The rest is all 100% positive. It's a bit like Massive's crazy younger brother but i'm getting some good sounds from it. Will post a few once I have 20 or so i'm happy with

Hi Stephan, I am deeply impressed with Concept X. I'm using it on a very special microtonal project. Can't thank you enough for creating it. Makes Reaktor one of the coolest platforms around. Let me know if there's anything I can do to return the favor. Marcus

This one is absolutely superb! Straight up my alley! :D I only wish the panel was a bit bigger - it's a tad small on my laptop. Still it's a 10/10!

@ tom: 1st: I'm not Uwe Hoenig. 2nd: It's possible, sure. Just put in two Outs and connect them with the outs of the lofi-unit.

Hi Stephan, I looked in structure for an OUT, to add some effects, but couldn't find it. Isn't is possible? By the way are you Uwe Hoenig as I think you are as much a genius as he is and I recognized some things Uwe might have made as well. Please answer to weijers4@xs4all.nl Cheers mate and kind regards Thomas Weijers

Another awesome synthesizer. NI should be contacting you about a job because you make the best soft synths I have ever found on this forum. You have some serious talent my friend. Thanks for sharing your work, it is very much appreciated.

@all: thank you very much. i didn't expect such a positive response for this very complicated and CPU-hungry thing. @jason: to generate noise, select the waveform "steps4", turn the wave-knob fully to the right and rise feedback to maximum. this will lead into something like noise.

The first time I have given 10/10. This is because the ens isn’t just an incredible construction of “standard” synth modules that some amazing ens such as Lenin have blown my mind with. It is more. A clever clever combination of wavetable and FM, build your sound with these and top off with a versatile filter set. Great sounds just pour out of it. Just spin the dials. I am sure I will get even more out of it when I get the hang of all the options but at the moment I am having the most fun just creating snapshots. They are all inspiring tracks and riffs. Even the effects offer more than the usual delay/reverb that I usually switch off. This time they are on. What is up with you all? There have been some wonderful ens published recently. Is it lambing season?

1.1 Works ok and I have to spend some time with it and take peek inside. Sounds very good and It also looks very nice. CPU consumption seems to vary with algorithm in use. Good work!

Simply glorious. The fix made all the difference. MWXT meets DX11. Someone fetch me a bib. At least two of the following apply: *genuflects in Stephan V's general direction* *mows Stephan V's lawn without having to be asked to do so* *recommends Stephan V for Nobel Tweak prize*

Mr Stephan The Fifth, Your synths are ALWAYS brilliant, but this one is extraordinary, you are topping yourself! Not only great synth engine and sound, you also provide fantastic presets to learn the sound of them. Thank you so much for sharing your creations. They are incredibly inspirational. (I'm a leecher and consumer of the library more than a builder)

Sorry, sorry, sorry. I forgot to activate "store sound with module" on the operators A, C & D. Now I fixed it and I hope it works.

Thanks to Jonathan for the tip on how to get this to work, because when it works, it sounds great and, to my ears, relatively unique for the UL. Very playable and musical to boot. Thanks much for doing this Stephan.
