Over the past year I've been learning to build instruments and ensembles with Native Instruments' Reaktor 5. I love it - it's beautifully designed, it sounds amazing, and there are all sorts of instruments to download from the NI user library.
At the same time, I haven't found many books or deep online tutorials about Reaktor, beyond simple stuff like constructing a basic subtractive synth. That seems a bit of a shame, because R5's such a good way to explore synth design and electronic sound.
So I started exploring R5 while using it in my own tracks. And I thought I might try to share some of what I've discovered, in case it has any value for other people. So I've started this video diary. It's going to be a little bit freeform, and I'm no grand master, but I suppose it still might be useful to people who are getting to grips with what Reaktor can do.
I hope you enjoy it, and feel free to drop me a line with your feedback. Thanks!
