Reaktor 6

DESCRIPTION

[PLEASE UPDATE YOUR REAKTOR (6.2.1)BEFORE YOU TRY THIS ONE!!!!]

I've loved Polivoks sound, look and spirit for a long time and as I am a 3D designer I decided to model the russian beast in 3D just for my pleasure.
Then I decided it was not enough and decided to give the thing a voice (only one I'm afraid)

V1.02 : Adding "MB" version which offers smooth env release.
Mark Bonnington helped me fix some bugs/malfunctions, Thanks Mark!

V1: Keyboard is back and functionnal, Release bug fixed!
V 0.91: I removed the keyboard, hoping it will fix the crashes

Due to my pretty basic knowledge of REAKTOR this is some kind of Frankenstein creature, made of borrowed parts (credits at the bottom)
There's bugs, pops and I don't know If I'll have time to fix them
Anyway here it is, as it is. I screams and that's all we ask it. :p
You've been warned

This sounds really good. Takes me back to when I was a young post-punk/new waver.

Hey, it sounds really cool. But it has a strange effect to play the note again when you release the note. Haven't anyone noticed that. How to turn it off? Because I really love the way this synth sounds and with this weird effect I can't use it wherever I want. Please help!

There is something definitely wrong with the release like it springs back or something...it would be cool to fix it because it's a real authentic emulation! Anybody? I'd fix it but I have no idea about Reaktor :)

It would be a great device but when a key is released there is some kind of a "thump", it was done like this on purpose or it's a bug? Or the problem is on my side?

You did it! I've used the original back in the 1980s and can vouch the authenticity of the sound. Thanks

Excellent sound. One thing, if you change the attack and release knobs to have a min value of 0.05 then it will avoid the clicking problem from sudden amplitude changes.

Has potential...nice work so far. Really needs duophonic operation though. Glide affects both oscillators. On the hardware glide only affects oscillator 1

Super fat and raw sounds! Love the fact that it's actually sample based. Beautifully crafted GUI as well!

David - sorry about that! I had updated R but for some reason only to 6.2. And I didn't indentify the mismatch until after I failed and written my comment. Hence, I added which release I failed with so you would know... I just hate that Reaktor is changing fileformat at every release...

Such a cool ensemble, thanks a lot! Great work! Now, I don't know anything about "the russian beast", but is the release time suppose to be extremely short? I almost can't hear a difference between min/max.

It works fine on my MAC with R 6.2.1 I had a similar issue in my last thread. Somewhere there is a big breakdown in communication involving updates. Really enjoying your synth, sounds great with a beautiful interface :)

David I'm on pc and update my system as I found in Native Access a new one R6.2.1 while I searching for FORM 1.1.1. Never got an email from NI for updating my system to a new Reaktor version. So my system don't crashes
David Frappaz

Can you guys confim the installing R 6.2.1 fixes the crash for everybody. It looks like it's a MAC only issue, people with PC don't crash I'm re-doing the keyboard's graphics to fit the macro It should be up soon

Thanks for compressing your upload. - Yes, it's new for all Reaktor users that the version before crashes. In past times you got a note in a small window: It's saved with a newer version. Poor and pitty NI!

Incredibly made interface! definitly looks like a lot of time and love was put into the interface. Also interesting is to see that the oscillators seem to be samples, I wonder if they are samples of the original?
