An-all-in-one synthesis, sampling, and effects powerhouse.

REAKTOR 5 is the ultimate tool for sound design and synthesis, allowing you to design your own instruments and tools as well as access an award-winning palette of synthesis, sampling, and effects. REAKTOR 5 includes an upgraded sound library with more than 20 new sound tools and effects, as well as Reaktor-class additions: Skrewell (soundscape generator), Splitter (grain sampler), and Aerobic, (drum machine). Several Reaktor classics have been updated including Carbon 2 (synthesis workstation), Steampipe 2 (acoustic modeling synth), and Spacemaster 2 (reverb).

Core Technology, new for REAKTOR 5, breaks ground by supplying you with the power and flexibility to create new types of instruments! 3 years in development, Core Technology opens up the innovative sound generators, effects, and sounds of the Reaktor architecture to allow the building of custom modules from Core Cells. These building blocks include oscillators, filters, EQs, delays, and more, with 40 included in the core library.

A tweaked user interface gives a much faster and more transparent workflow for creation. Mac users will doubtlessly enjoy the more Apple-like feeling of the OS X version. Instruments can now be connected within the panel, as can Audio and MIDI channels. In version 5 Screensets have been reworked into Panel sets, which can be set up for indiviudal working styles to customize views of REAKTOR projects. Sequencing has also been improved with a piano-roll editor and 2 additional drum sequencers. REAKTOR 5 also implements versatile multibreakpoint envelopes.

My Reaktion

Reaktor is literally a godsend of maniacal proportions. It not only gives you loads of ready-made instruments but lets you create your own and toy with the existing ones. I also like the new CORE technology that lets you build instruments in an entirely new dimension. It may cost about $400, but it is definitely worth every cent! I even like the fact that it is compatible with WAV and AIFF files so I can take my guitar tracks and turn them into samples. NI ARE GENIUSES!!

Reaktor 5.0 is unlike any other production software I have ever used. The ability to design your own instruments as well as modify existing instruments to your own liking is only one facet of why this program is fantastic. The sound quality is nothing less than superb, and the open-source style of programming is great. The community of users online is a nice addition too allowing for one to download and use over hundreds of ensembles for free! Definitely worth the purchase. I use Reaktor in conjunction with Live and the combination is nothing less than inspiring. If you make experimental music or have a desire to this product will take you places you never knew you could go. Compared to other similarly priced and marketed production programs in the marketplace (Reason, Logic, etc...) Reaktor tromps them all. No question. Buy it!
