Reaktor 6

DESCRIPTION

*2020 Update: PEQ and Velo filter are both ZDF type with all audio rate modulation, including resonance. Added the "infinite mirror" option in the oscillator. Added an oscillator visual and red LED numerical display that receives from all knobs. Added snaps from Stefan Knauthe (thanks!!) on bank 2. A few other bits to ensure control signals are accurate. Pink noise in Velo filter is by Paul Kellet. Included is Autovol, a safety net and SpiralDur, a mod of a sequencer by the legend called Lazyfish. Reaktor 6.3.2. Enjoy.

Updated Weedwacker - All modulations can be audio rate(SR.R) apart from vibrato and PEQ resonance control which can optionally be 'clocked' at SR.R/2 i.e. half the sample rate. There is an added drone button in EG1. Of note are the oscillators used for the LFOs and in EG2, it took me ages to get the emulation of the R4 LFO correct what with snc and phase etc. Included is the original MIDI demo file and snapshots. This version sounds absolutely authentic i.e. snaps sound like they should, of course higher resolution modulation increases the 'quality' of the sound. Modified gui is easy on the eye for long sessions with this wonderous beast. The vast majority of credit goes to Siegmar Kreie for instrument design (also Vladislav Delay and Uwe G. Hoenig - snaps and demo)This is a stunning instrument and if you love Weedwacker, this will provide.

OK.. I found the issue, I think. I managed to unrar it on my Win 10 machine ok. It fails on my Win 7 music machine. I am happy again..

No. I'm on PC. I managed to successfully unrar other ensembles ok. I just have a problem with this one. I did re download again in case it was corrupted. My suspicion is that it may have been rar'ed with an earlier or later version than my programs are compatible with.

Hi Phil, I presume you are on a Mac? Keka worked for me: https://www.keka.io/en/

I am having trouble unraring this file with 7-zip or winrar. Both programs say they cant open the file. What are you using to decompress file?

This is the only softsynth ensemble which ONLY plays when I use my computer keyboard and NOT with my normal MIDI keyboard. Anyone with the same problem??

I really like weedwacker and use it a lot. But even when I've turned off all the 'recall by' (properties) buttons the drive dial and or the boost dial always snap to zero when I stop the midi sequence in Cubase. I then have to reload the preset to get the original settings. It's a great, unique synth, Thanks

great the pulse wave LFOs are back. this is a fantastic upload it always was a wonderful synth but the differences here really make this a reaktor must. one of my favourites.

Cant seem to open this on a mac os 9 either in standalone reaktor, or vst plugin. No problem opening other synths from the user library. Weedwacker is one of my favourite ensembles, look forward to getting this new version up and running.

i miss the pulse wave choice on the LFOs. i (personally) don't like the background but the other graphics are nice. good work though.
