Reaktorblocks is fun, but I thought it was time for me to go further and create an instrument in Reaktor’s Primary as it lends itself to greater flexibility in sound and look; let me introduce BRUTE for REAKTOR 6

This simple polyphonic subtractive synth gives you a set of punchy drums, some powerful basses and a range of interesting sounds for top-lines. I didn’t preset lots of strings and pads but they are easily created.

Two oscillators with four wave-forms in each and a powerful LFO combine to give an interesting depth and variation. Extra sound sources are crackle and hiss so it’s also possible to get that LOFI retro-sampled feel.

Check out the demo above for some fat sounds. This is all made with BRUTE and no tricks apart from some compression in Ableton.

It’s really easy to write presets for so please dive in and have fun.
