    Hi,

    As you may have seen from my recent announcement, I'm filling the new role of community manager and I wanted to say hello.

    Thomas and the others @NI will still be around, but I'm on hand to offer additional assistance where I can. It shows that we're taking our community presence a step further, which I believe is fantastic.

    I'll be delivering more news directly, and although I don't have any details about 5.6 to pass on right now, I'll be sure to post here as and when I do.

    I am also responsible for sending regular updates to the development team summarising community consensus. If there's anything you feel should be highlighted, please do send me a PM. Alternatively, I'm available via Skype's IM feature, my name is NativeKeir, feel free to add me.

    Once the dust has settled, I'm hopeful that we can implement some really exciting community initiatives on the forum, particularly for Reaktor - but more of that in due time.

    That's all from me for now, if you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to post away.

    Cheers,
    Keir.

    Welcome Keir!

    I very pleased to hear that NI also will be part of the Reaktor community.
    My personal reflection is that this forum and the Reaktor UL has become less active the last 6 months. I hope this will be a vitamin injection for the Reaktor community.

    Thanks chaps.

    Aside from helping communication, I'm really excited about the prospect of running some community based initiatives and competitions with Reaktor.

    Hi, great news! Are there any prices for the competition?

    A Maschine or maybe software or a new glass for my Goldfish ?

    OK, I have some news!

    We're planning on releasing the 5.6.0 update next week. It focuses on full 64 Bit support for Windows/Mac OSX and it also includes some new features to assist with building and modifying.

    We'll be passing on more extensive details next week but I wanted to let you all know what's coming up.

    That's the first time I ever heard a pre-release statement from NI.

    I like this new guy!

    This should be very interesting, from the U/L submissions lately it seems Reaktor development interest is flagging. Or maybe it's just getting too difficult to build things at the next level...

    Thank you and welcome Keir. Very good news that such a position has been created, a long requested and most desired dedicated 'interface' to NI here is certainly a great first step.

    This community is such a valuable commodity, I do hope this marks a new era of exchange and ideas through this relationship. The UL and it's contributors are such a unique resource, I hope you the best in plumbing the social depths of it's potentials to the advantage of all :D

    Nice touch and good to see you. One of the few companies that actually put a name (no face) to the PR support regions :)

    Looking forward to x64 any date soon?
