Reaktor 5.1


The Fusion of Synthesis, Sampling, Effects and Sequencing
REAKTOR 5 fuses all audio applications into a single, extremely versatile and powerful tool. Musicians, producers and sound designers are all catered to by the very broad range of instruments and sounds already included. Due to the open engine architecture, the potential for building your own highly individual instruments is endless. Whether you are using the instruments from the library or creating your own, the only limit is your imagination.


REAKTOR 5 is both a collection of hundreds of software instruments as well as complete studio environment for constructing entirely new and individual instruments.

Superior Sound, Perfect Performance
Internationally known artists and designers have contributed to the extensive library of presets and instruments. Its unique sonic flexibility establishes REAKTOR as the ultimate tool for musicians and producers working in studios both large and small. A particularly fast and immediate control of the sound guarantees musicians on stage a lively and inspiring performance. The unrivalled sound is made possible by the REAKTOR Core Technology™ and new, highly advanced algorithms.

REAKTOR Core Technology™
The fifth generation of this award-winning modular studio offers completely new dimensions in designing and producing custom instruments. REAKTOR Core Technology™ delves deeper into modular construction than ever before. Develop your own individual modules; build unique filters, oscillators and fully personalize your library. REAKTOR Core Technology™ benefits everyone. It is a visual audio development environment with integrated run-time compiler technology, allowing the creation of individual, high-performance low-level content.

Building a Better Future
REAKTOR is also an extraordinary sonic laboratory, its modular design releasing you from the constraints of more conventional setups. The extensive library of macros and modules combined with REAKTOR's clear, uncomplicated interface turns the construction of sonic tools into an intuitive process. The instruments are now completely "skinable". All of the graphical elements can be fully customized, allowing totally individualized instrument design. The online REAKTOR User Library offers an extensive platform on which an ever-growing global community exchanges a vast number of instruments and ideas.

Ingenious Instruments
REAKTOR 5 is equipped with a vast library of impressive and innovative instruments. Powerful samplers allow far reaching granular resynthesis and the innovative effects pave the way for profound sound manipulation. The stunning array of synthesizers delivers everything from rumbling basses to searing leads and beyond. The selection of sequenced instruments lend themselves particularly well to live performance thanks to their ability to create dynamic rhythms, melodies, chord sequences and more. From authentic emulations of classic gear to bizarre, otherworldly creations; from the conventional to the controversial – REAKTOR delivers.

New in REAKTOR 5:

The mighty REAKTOR 5 has arrived and with it staggering new potential. The latest version of this completely modular studio exceeds all expectations and offers unrivalled possibilities.

New Instruments Library
REAKTOR 5 is a complete music studio right out of the box, providing dozens of outstanding synthesizers, drum machines, sequenced instruments, live performance tools and effects.

The newly developed library for REAKTOR 5 includes more than 20 new sound tools and effects. The library offers highly innovative additions like the soundscape generator "Skrewell", the grain sampler "Splitter" and the drum machine "Aerobic", as well as several updated REAKTOR classics including Carbon 2, Steampipe 2 and Spacemaster 2.

REAKTOR Core Technology
REAKTOR Core Technology breaks new grounds with regard to flexibility and power, allowing the creation of new types of instruments. The REAKTOR Core Technology, new in REAKTOR 5, has been over three years in the making and opens up a whole world of innovative sound generators, effects and more. A completely new layer of functionality that is seamlessly integrated into the REAKTOR architecture, Core Technology now enables true low-level signal processing design, and allows for an unlimited range of custom modules including oscillators, filters, EQs, delays and more.

The REAKTOR Core layer incorporates a run-time compiler for increased efficiency. While offering vast potential as a visual low-level programming environment for professional instrument design and education, REAKTOR Core Technology also gives musicians and producers access to a vast selection of advanced and highly inventive, ready-made sound generators, sequencers and effects.

To ensure instruments designers immediately benefit from the new Core Technology, more than 40 new Core Cells are already included in the new core library, such as new filters, EQs, oscillators, delays and more. Last but not least, a comprehensive Core Technology manual simplifies exploring the new possibilities of this innovative feature.

Graphical User Interface
The user interface of REAKTOR 5 has been optimized resulting in a much faster and more transparent workflow for instrument users and creators alike. Mac users will doubtlessly enjoy the more apple-like feeling of the OS X version. Instruments can now be connected within the panel, no need to dive into the structure. This applies to both Audio and MIDI routing.

Panel Sets
A reworked Screensets mechanism has been implemented – so called Panel sets. These enable REAKTOR to be set up for particular, indiviudal working styles considerably speeding up processes. Essentially, these Panel sets allow ultra fast access to custom views of REAKTOR projects - particularly useful, for example, for setups that have been tuned for different instances, such as studios or stages.

Sequencing within REAKTOR
A new set of instruments make it easy to create sequenced sounds. Already included are some new sequencers such as a "Piano Roll Editor" and two new drum sequencers.
Connections between instruments have been simplified by the "connection on panel" feature and more powerful by "send/receive internal com" modules. This allows automation data to be sent from one instrument to another, much in the same manner that AU/VST host programs do.

Breakpoint Envelopes
Anyone who has ever used FM7 doubtlessly lays great worth on the versatile multi-breakpoint envelopes. This flexible and extremely useful feature has now been implemented within REAKTOR's modular environment. Use these incredibly versatile and intuitive envelopes to breathe life into your rhythms, sounds and music.

Specialist and Expert Features
A number of additions and enhancements have been made to facilitate the experts amongst us in their instrument construction endeavours:

* Macro Stacks: allow for a slicker instrument design, the larger instruments will be replaced by leaner more powerful ones.
* Improved Internal Connections: Routing event signals within instruments has been greatly improved by the new "Send Internal Com" and "Receive internal Com" modules.
* MIDI Message Modules: There is a new source and destination module for all MIDI channel messages (Note On/Off, Pitchbend, Control Change, Program Change, Channel Aftertouch, Poly Aftertouch)
* Voice Lock and MIDI Slave Mode: allows instruments to be tied to one another.
* Enhanced Snap Value Module: The existing Snap Value module can now be set to the polyphonic mode, making the input and outpu t polyphonic.
* Snap Value Array Module: This module can store and recall arrays of float values to/from the edit buffer and snapshots.
* Poly Display and Multi Display Module: Both modules allow multiple graphical objects to be generated and manipulated.The advantage of the Multi Display is that it can run inside instruments with any number of voices. The Poly Display has the advantage that it does not need a dedicated index and the structures are a little simpler.
* Mouse Area Module: This module is similar to the mouse sensitive part of the Multi Picture. It has been extended for additional mouse events and modes. In many cases it will be an invisible overlay for other modules like the Multi Display, but it can have its own outline or fill color and can indicate selection or mouse activity.
