1. We're currently conducting systematic tests with the release version of macOS 11 (Big Sur) in order to offer full compatibility of our products as soon as possible. You can find our latest compatibility status - here


    Please note that although announced at the same time as macOS Big Sur, Apple Silicon processors are an independent release with separate compatibility concerns for NI products. Compatibility with macOS Big Sur will not yet ensure compatibility with Apple Silicon processors. At the moment, Native Instruments products are not supported on computers with Apple Silicon processors. Read more - here

    6.3.0 - 2019-04-08

    This update provides a fully overhauled user experience for the Blocks framework. Most remarkable new features: new file format, called “Rack” file, allows to save patches with your DAW session, patching Blocks is now possible on panel and a search box makes browsing for Blocks more intuitive.
    The Blocks framework now also runs in free Reaktor Player, and is open for 3rd party products.
    • ADDED New file format, called “Rack”. The new file format is specifically suited to the Blocks framework, and allows to save patches, including the wiring, in a very small file size to enable saving patches with the host chunk
    • ADDED Patching on panel for Reaktor Full and Reaktor Player users in Rack mode
    • ADDED Quick Search Box for convenient browsing in Rack mode
    • ADDED “Visible on/off” property for terminal ports. The ports can now also have an user defined image
    • ADDED Visual representations of the audio in and out terminals on panel, supporting up to 40 ports
    • CHANGED Text module “view” properties default state
    • ADDED Min width and height properties for instruments and macros
    • ADDED New font “Roboto Condensed Light” for the text module.
    • ADDED Global switch from A to B view for all instruments at once
    • IMPROVED Design of the interface in Rack mode. Four new buttons in the header now allow for switching between view states “Compact”, “Ports only” and “Ports and Wires”. Additional toggle switch for “Show Structure”
    • CHANGED Design of the structure view in Rack mode. Removed breadcrumb navigation and Bookmarks bar. Changed color theme and design of structure view
    • REMOVED Unnecessary properties in Rack Mode. Properties are now reduced to Midi in and out Settings on the connect tab and the bankchain settings on the function tab
    • ADDED Coloured wires - eight different colours are available to distinct wires in a patch
    • FIXED Automation ID issue: when deleting a Block the Automation IDs don’t get auto compressed, but keep their original ID
    • ADDED Consistency for file and project name in Rack mode
    • CHANGED Behaviour in case of loading a project with non applicable host chunk. If the Rack file is not loadable due to missing instruments referenced in the file, the host chunk will be preserved to be applicable after fixing installation
    • REMOVED The option to “minimize” instruments and to switch A/B view via the header in Rack mode
    • IMPROVED “Extended view” in Maschine & Komplete Kontrol enables panel patching
    • CHANGED The sample map editor in Rack mode. The sample editor is showing only relevant options / functions, as the sample map editor in Reaktor Player
    • REMOVED Context menues for panel and structure view in Rack mode
    • CHANGED Handling of missing instruments. As the Rack format is relying on referenced files, a new error message guides users how to fix issues via Native Access, or the installation of 3rd party content
    • ADDED “Welcome Screen” on start up
    • ADDED “Load new Rack” entry to the Preference “On startup”
    • ADDED Dedicated NEW.nksr Rack file to the Library folder of the application
    • FIXED Accessibility of presets via the toolbar. This issue occurred specifically with REAKTOR instruments like FORM.

    Version 6.2.2 - 2018-06-26
    The REAKTOR Core macro library has received a significant update, with many highlights.
    • ADDED Non-transposed nonlinear Sallen–Key filter
    • IMPROVED Cleaned up the internal structure of the transposed Sallen–Key filters. The TSK NLA filter sound is slightly changed
    • ADDED 8-pole ladder filters
      Hidden highlight: Try negative resonance on nonlinear 8-pole bandpass ladders (they begin to self-oscillate at resonance to -4)
    • ADDED A completely reworked set of shelving filters
      Hidden highlight: EQ slope can be varied in wide range for shelving EQs with high pole counts.
    • ADDED 6- and 8-pole bandpass Butterworth filters
    • ADDED 2nd kind (resonating) Butterworth filters
    • ADDED A completely reworked set of crossover macros
    • ADDED Configurable notch count for phasers
    • ADDED Thru-zero phaser and flanger, barberpole phaser and flanger, harmonic phaser
    • ADDED Asymmetric overdrive. Antialiased versions of symmetric and asymmetric overdrives
    • ADDED Bit and sample rate reduction effects
    • ADDED Compressor
    • ADDED Tempo and transport position synced LFO
    • ADDED LFO toolkit
    • ADDED Zero-crossing detector event processing macro
    • IMPROVED CPU consumption of the Delay and ZDF Delay macros (slightly)
    • FIXED Wrong phase deviation value at the output of the Phase Splitter macro inside the Freq Shift macro
    • FIXED Some of the Math macros were sending initialization even in cases where they shouldn’t have
    • FIXED xy2polar and toPolar macros now handle zero input
    • FIXED OSX 10.13 - APFS formatted drives now show up in the browser

    Version 6.2.1 - 2017-12-19
    This update introduces the support for Midi FX for Logic and workflow improvements for builders. It will also allow us to improve the software via better usage data tracking.
    • ADDED Support for Midi FX in Logic
    • IMPROVED Increased wire pickup zone in Core ports
    • IMPROVED Behavior of property tab selection when switching modules in structure view
    • IMPROVED Behavior of copy/paste actions in Reaktor Core
      1. When pasting a module selection with an unconnected QuickBus send it created a new bus instead of using the existing one. Pasted modules will now use the existing QuickBus
      2. Occasionally, pasted modules would appear widely offset from their original positions. This is fixed with this update.
    • IMPROVED Usage data tracking
      More info here: https://www.native-instruments.com/en/support/knowledge-base/show/4519/what-is-usage-data-tracking

    Version 6.2.0 - 2017-08-16
    This update enables third-party instrument builders to release commercial products for Reaktor and free Reaktor Player - including IP protection of the respective devices, convenient installation, licensing and browsing.

    Additionally, the product demo functionality has been overhauled and now allows the use of both licensed and unlicensed content within one ensemble.
    • ADDED Structure locking for third-party products
    • ADDED Sample protection for third-party products
    • ADDED Native Access activation callback
    • CHANGED Player tab is able to sort Products by vendor
    • IMPROVED Demo screen rebuilt - ability to display multiple products and their demo time

    • FIXED No midi QWERTY input after renaming of bookmark

    • FIXED Drag & drop of primary module files into structure

    New in REAKTOR 6.1.1:
    • Crash when inserting core cell fixed
    • MIDI sync ignored after disabling Ableton Link fixed

    New in REAKTOR 6.1.0:
    • Ableton link support
    • Core Cell visible on Panel View fixed
    • Not possible to assign a midi CC to the knob through the right click menu - now fixed
