Reaktor 6


Reaktor 6 introduces Blocks — a self contained system that brings the patching experience of analogue modular synthesizers to Reakor.

The Blocks Building Template provides you with all the essential elements to get started building your own Blocks. Including template instruments, panel widgets, core macros, and documentation.

We're looking forward to seeing your creations!

Would be cool to have this template officially updated to support new updates to the platform.

Hey Team! Is this the latest for Reaktor 6.3, for Front Facing Patching? I wanted to start trying to figure out how to convert Reaktor 6.2 - Reaktor 6.3

When I try to open this up it defaults to Reaktor 5 and does not work. Is it just a case of changing the ENS file to open with Reaktor 6 to fix? Thanks

Guys, stop crying about how old your computers are and act like adults. This is the future of sound, not the past.

FYSA; synthesizers to 'Reakor''.

Imagine a modular synthesizer as the Arturia's Moog Modular V but made with BLOCKS and core cells: probably you need an Intel Core i16 (take a time machine and go to 2078 to take one!) to run a SINGLE INSTANCE of it, and it's not good for Reaktor. Yes, the quality of Reaktor is TOP, but we really need something more CPU friendly. Am I the only one who thinks so? OK for the quality but my dream of a jam made with Reaktor based stuff only is so faaaar, because at this moments it's IMPOSSIBLE (or you use cheap ensembles, or you can't). That's why I have to use VSTs. I'll upgrade mobo and CPU but I'm sure I'll always have CPU problems with Reaktor, and it's sad because it's really the best software stuff out there. When R6 came out, the first thing that a friend asked me was "is CPU use improved?". My answer: "...". I'm so disappointed...these guys only think to make sample libraries and ridiculous stuff as Maschine, where's the REAL N.I. that I loved? Probably gone with S.M ... a Massive v.2? a CPU friendly Reaktor? an Absynth 6? No, they do sample libraries... ahahah

BLOCKS is an awesome standard (I have to say I expected much more from the long awaited Reaktor 6, because BLOCKS is only a way to "pack" things and give them a modular standard... some stacked macros, in fact) that's good for making modular toys. One thing I don't like is that A/B is not enough! I'm creating my first modular wavetable synthesizer using BLOCKS and I had to build a sort of matrix to add more modulators... why not a native A/B/C/D ? Have to do it by yourself. Another thing I don't like is the knob arranging on the panel, it's so....brrrrr SCARY and horrible! You loose too much ime with this knobs, a NEW KIND of knobs (and NOT a combo of devices for a knob) would be much better! And do we have to talk about CPU? I hoped a CPU optimization in this fact my simple modular synth (that in a normal ensemble would be at 8-9% of CPU max) is at 20%. I tried the factory BLOCKS on a dual core....THEY'RE IMPOSSIBLE TO RUN A SINGLE NOTE FOR THE OVERLOAD, and they're ALL simple stuff! What's the matter N.I. ?? We waited for reaktor 6 for sooo loooong, and now we have a Reaktor 5 with a new GUI and only bit more! I dreamed so many features that I expected a MONSTER, and we have not so much more than v.5. WE WANT STEPHAN SCHMITT BACK.... probably with him the things would have been very different! The worst thing is the CPU.... I have to use TONS of ensembles but simply I CANNOT. You need NASA computers to make things that I can do with a Pentium 3 and VSTs, come on!

ok, it seems it's actually in the manual, should have read that... :) Probably need to learn a few things to make blocks, but it's a great system!

Where can I find a tutorial on how to customize the displayed knob ranges? I want to make a simple knob from 1 to 128 and can't find out how to do it... the multi text display is a riddle and i also can't find anything about how the signal flow for panel elements in blocks works. Please add some examples for different knob ranges and explain somewhere what is going on, I don't want to spend hours of learning to create a knob.

Important tip : once you have pasted a knob macro in a new instrument, if you want to move it around you cannot simply drag it around in the unlocked panel or you will break it into parts. You need to select the macro in the structure, then put the focus on the panel by either clicking the empty area of the panel breadcrumb or using TAB, then use arrows to move the - still looking selected in the structure - macro around.

Thank you for this excellent starting toolkit! It helped with the construction of my first Block. Some feedback: It's not too hard to copy-paste the controls that you want and plug them together in Core. However, dragging the elements around on the panel and trying to get them to have the alignment you want is hugely problematic. For instance, the pre-built knobs don't group together unless you put a frame around them. Turning off the frame changes the positioning. Editing labels in these pre-built control sets is a structure-diving nightmare. For instance, the radio label buttons are about five or six layers in, and you have to edit two separate labels that are on different layers from each other. I'm really hoping that the panel-designing aspects are a priority for the next few Reaktor updates.
