Native Instruments releases free REAKTOR Blocks 1.3 update
[permalink] 22.06.2017

Native Instruments REAKTOR 6 BLOCKS Kodiak Morph Filter screenshot Native Instruments released REAKTOR Blocks 1.3, a substantial update to this acclaimed virtual modular system, provided with REAKTOR 6. Free for existing users, Blocks 1.3 introduces a new Blocks family: Kodiak. These five modules are not modelled on specific hardware. Instead, Kodiak modules combine analog character with digital power. Duality OSC is a dual oscillator that adds innovative wave-shaping to Blocks. It offers phase-, frequency-, amplitude-, and timbre-modulation, and is ideal for growling basses, vibrant leads, and rich percussion. Shift Sequencer is an unconventional step sequencer. It has independent sequence-length and direction controls for pitch, octave, velocity, hold, and gate, making polyrhythmic sequencing easy. Blocks 1.3 is part of REAKTOR 6. REAKTOR 6 is available for purchase now for 199 USD / EUR. [source]

[permalink] 21.06.2017

4ms Spectral Multiband Resonator Softume Modular video Audio plug-in specialist Softube announced that a highly respected synth module-maker 4ms has joined the Modular platform -- the virtual Eurorack system released last year.

In short, 4ms SMR can process audio like a classic filter bank, ring like a marimba when plucked/struck, act as a vocoder, remix tracks, harmonize, output spectral data, quantize other oscillators to scales, and much more besides. 4ms SMR is an add-on to Softube's Modular, and can only be used from within the Modular platform. It is available now at an introductory price of 39 USD. After June 30, 2017, the module will be priced at 49 USD. [source]
