The Insider's Guide to REAKTOR is aimed at musicians and producers, rather than instrument designers: the focus is on all those things you need to understand in order to use the existing ensembles in a musical context.
Produced by sound-design wizard Dan Worrall (who has produced feature vids for FabFilter, Camel Audio, and others), this video spills the inside story on how REAKTOR “thinks,” allowing you to bypass the endless hours of frustration that most producers sink into the program when they try to go it alone.
This is 42 minutes and 39 seconds of highly concentrated REAKTOR intelligence.
(Full disclosure: This is not a video on designing a synth in REAKTOR. No way: The Insider’s Guide to REAKTOR is all about getting you using REAKTOR in your music… faster than you thought possible.)
Here’s a small sample of what’s in store for you:
A sneaky tactic for using probability to generate totally original “out-there” sounds with Lazerbass.
Fly up the learning curve on REAKTOR’s Rhythmaker step-sequencing uber-tool (including a shortcut for getting to the precise rhythmic variations you’re after).
Put your loop skills on steroids with Sample Transformer, REAKTOR’s new sample manipulation tool.
Quickly “get” how REAKTOR “thinks” (nailing this will turbocharge your REAKTOR learning).
Clear away the confusion about what will (and won’t) save with your project files (and NEVER lose your work again).
You’ll also learn
the difference between Built-In Modules and Core Cells (a distinction you need to know, even if you don’t design your own instruments).
how Macros work (knowledge essential to understanding how REAKTOR “thinks” about building sounds).
all about Snapshots — REAKTOR’s uber-preset system (this knowledge will keep you from the frustrating storage screw-ups that stymie so many users).
a lesson on Equinoxe Deluxee (the vintage string synth emulation) that clears away the confusion about how REAKTOR thinks about polyphony (and how to get those lush, detuned sounds).
how to convert your sounds into audio files (this feature is much more powerful and flexible than you might think).
about using REAKTOR in your DAW (and making sure your ensembles save with your project files).
how to set up your DAW to capture REAKTOR’s midi data (including parameter changes, or just about anything else you can think of).
Dan Worrall's “Compassion” Linear Compressor for Reaktor 5
Dan Worrall's NimiNoog for Reaktor 5
The “NimiNoog” instrument that Dan built especially for the Insider’s Guide: This is a simple analog-style synth (two oscillators, an amp envelope, a filter envelope, and a single LFO) that you can really dig into (and start making the mental connections critical to understanding REAKTOR’s more complex instruments, effects, and ensembles)
