I would pay good money for a synth of this quality, and here it is for free. One complaint: I'm having so much fun playing with it that I can't focus on writing music!

I can't thank you enough Herwig, this is an incredible gift to the Reaktor Community! The step-by-step tutorial presets are a clever and effective teaching tool to help players orient themselves to the layout and special features. Inspiring job, also thanks to the users who helped you. :)

This is sensational! Some eeeenormous sounds. I'm now late for work due to an hour lost twiddling knobs and connecting LFOs to Cutoffs. Bloody marvelous. :o)

So sorry. I know a lot of work has been put into this but I was rather disappointed. Trying out all the presets yielded no new possibilities to me. Sorry.

@Marcos: RUHR-ens is an R5.6.1 ensemble. So you cannot load it with R5.5.1. please update REAKTOR!

Doesn't work for me. Loading the ensemble will result in a crash of Reaktor and it's host :(

Please ask questions in forum's thread „ruhr” @ Karel Skakal in principle there are no impossible connections. In the manual you read that there are polyphony and monophone containers (white or light blue background). If you connect a polyphony output to a mono phone output the internal structure will not accept it and will close the wire - but nothing will happen. Of course there are feedback loops possible which can produce loud sound blast (f.i. be careful with 8-pole filter and high resolution. The filters are able to oscillate by itself (resonance>1. This is a wished feature. So be careful when constructing a patch with feedback and high resonance. That's the risk of a modular synth ;) . There are no risks when using the tutorial or the banks sowari and herw 1.

Thank you Herwig. This is truly a great achievement and shows fantastic attention to detail.
Karel Skakal

Question: is it possible to do a WRONG wire connection that results in feedback or loud sound blast? Are there some definite no-nos?
Karel Skakal

Thank you so much for this FANTASTIC modular, and like sowari said, it is free, and I waited months for this, so 90sec. loading time is not worth mentioning... I am driving it with M-185 sequencer, while I learn and tweak:-) Great sounds...thank you 10+

@Jedinhopy Xelon (2012-01-28 13:53:03): RUHR takes too long time to open. yes it is a bug of REAKTOR and is caused by use of such many IC-send and send-receiveconnections - not my failure; have to accept it; normal loading time is ca. 90 seconds but much fun :)

Congratulations Herwig! You finally made it true. This definitely is (one of) the most sophisticated ensemble(s) for Reaktor. One can feel the immense effort that you put into this over several years! I only briefly browsed through some of the snaps yet, but I'm already deeply impressed. Thanks also to Sowari for his contributions. My only problem: I can't vote more than 10!

RUHR might take a while to load up and it might even use up CPU, but this is a tremendous achievement. Make no mistake, this is one of the most important uploads ever! and it is Free! I had the pleasure doing some of the Snapshots for this and it was/is enormous fun to create them. Fwiw, some of my patches are quite 'dance music' orientated, whilst others are more experimental. For the 'Sample n Hold Glitch ones, please hold down a 2 or 3 note chord and let the sound evolve over time. have fun and be creative!
