The first major update to Native Instruments’ modular music software in 10 years has arrived.
The new version of Reaktor features a number of new features, including Blocks, a new framework that turns the software into “a fully-equipped, rack-style modular synth.” Users will be able to add oscillators, filters, effects, modulators, and sequencers, including components from existing NI soft synths like Rounds and Monark.
NI also explains that the software has been built from the ground up, with a new interface to streamline workflow and refined libraries.
One of Native Instruments’ flagship products, Reaktor is a software studio first introduced in 1998, and features a unique graphical interface allowing users to create their own instruments using a host of virtual modules. The last full version, Reaktor 5, was released back in 2005.
Reaktor 6 is available from the NI website now, and costs £169.00. You can watch a video introduction to the new Blocks feature below.
