DESCRIPTION

Here's the second synth I made with Reaktor 6, and the first I upload to the user community, so nice to meet you all. It's build in primary, except some tweaks I did in some components in Core and its an aproximation to Arturia's Minibrute with some extra features.

The Features in particular:

- 5 Oscilators (Saw, Square, Triangle, Sub, Noise) with adjustable parameters (see below) with adjustable mixing.

- 4 Filters (LP, BP, HP, Notch) at 12db/Oct, with adjustable Q, Keytracking and Envelope.

- 2 LFOS (Vibrato with 3 waves and LFO with 6 waves)

- ADSR Envelopes with Atack & Decay -> Velocity.

- Assignable Aftertouch to Cutoff or Vibrato

- Assignable Modwheel to Cutoff, Vibrator or LFO

- Glide and PB Range knobs.

- Distortion knob (wouldn't be "Brutal" without it :) )

For the oscillator section:

- Sub Osc Params: Octave (-2, -1, 0), Waveform (Sine, Sqare, Triangle)

- Saw Osc Params: Detune, Spread, LFO

- Square Osc: Pulse Width, Env -> PW, LFO -> PW

- Triangle Osc: FM Amoun, Env -> FM, LFO -> FM, Modulator Freq

- Noise: Filter (LP - HP Sweepable)

I got some pretty nasty basslines out of it. It has worked very well for me and I hope you'll enjoy using it too. Note that for the moment there's no MIDI implementation for the controls, you can record / process automation via VST automation. Its in my intentions though to add this feature whenever I find the time.

Feedback much appreciated.

this is an awsome sounding synth....i honestly would have used it in a track if the Amp knob, in the LFO section, was functional...brutal8 sound for sure, i am on the edge of my seat hopeing for an Amp knob update fix here.

@Eduard Rojas & @Paule Amca ... I'll see what I can do :) @Mathias Schaffner The Saw Oscillator has a spread option, which makes its' signal stereo, hence the stereo filter. @blake mead I have no idea. But you can just try :) @Herwig Krass Because it looks cooler ;-)

Theo, built an arpeggiator like in Minibrute please.

Nice Synth! Thank You! But why make the filter and overdrive stereo? The sound is still all mono, right?

will this work in reaktor 5? Seeing it was built in primary and core not blocks I was hoping it would be.

Why do you call it an „analog” synthesizer? Everything is fully digital.

@Ben Allen Thanks I'll check it out ... /// @Donald Bayes I made it from scratch, as an excersise to start working with Reaktor. Thanks :)

Sounds good! I notice that the filter phasing is a little off though - I was getting panning effect with nothing but oscillator and filter.

@Theo Evangelatos your version is better ;)! after looking at the structure.. it is not even close to being a copy cheers

@Donald Baynes aparently because they are based on the same H/W synth :) @Paule Amca OK, I'll keep that in mind! Thanks for that handful of patches, they sound excelent!

That's because they're both emulations of the same synth.
