The synths are a string Ensemble with String Chorus and Phaser and a Synth called Digital – it is a mixture of additive and wavetable…”
ENSEMBLE: Inspired by the classic string machines of the 1970s, Ensemble is a Max for Live string synthesiser with a unique built-in morphing formant filter. Ensemble also includes chorus and phaser effects which can be used separately.
DIGITAL: Max for Cats presents DiGiTAL, a powerful polyphonic synth that fuses aspects of additive, wavetable, frequency modulation and subtractive synthesis. DiGiTAL is distinctly designed for creating new sounds and provides a comprehensive set of controls expressly for this purpose.
ANALOG TECHNO: Sample Magic delivers the grit and soul of machine-made techno with hundreds of loops crafted from analogue synths and hardware. This Pack comes loaded with pounding beats, raw synth lines, dirty basslines, dubbed-out chords, processed vocals and much more.
DUB MACHINES: Dub Machines is a pair of expertly designed Max for Live devices that reproduce, and expand on the sound of classic tape and analog delays. With vintage character, extensive control and deep sound-shaping capabilities, Dub Machines is ready to take any sound into space.
Minimojo is an emulation of Minimoog built in Reaktor, available for all registered product owners in the NI Reaktor User Library.
The Minimojo is not in any way a copy of MONARK. The builder did not have access to or ever used MONARK during the making of Minimojo. Instead, the old ensemble Minimood made by NI in 1999, which has then been modified by several users, has been used as the starting point. I think that the basic structure will be recognizable from that early ensemble.
As the Minimoog is the most emulated synthesizer the world probably don’t need yet another one. Minimojo should be seen as a proof of concept; how to emulate the should of vintage synthesizers using the Reaktor environment.
The technology developed for this is called Analog Legacy. Analog Legacy is the theory of modulating all functions in a synthesizer at all frequencies. The key is to find the right balance of the modulation depth for each frequency. Minimojo is the first attempt to use this theory in practice.
Background information below (Googlish):
From Córdoba, Argentina Córdoba but Martin Castro and Mauricio Piombo sent us some incredible instruments, Synthetic Instruments Reaktor ensembles to generate quite complex sounds and textures as is typical autechre, which certainly does not leave you indifferent. We have loved all your devices, also has a wide range, sound generators (RA1D3N v1 – SOUND GENERATOR), the beatbox Flash Dance (Matrix Drum Machine), the synthesizer wavetable rhythms (SINESTESYNTH – RHYTHMS WAVETABLE SYNTHESIZER ), and the synth TERRA INC0GN1TA – (sYNTH PADS) Flash Dance -
Boscomac has introduced The Chiller, a free synthesizer ensemble for Native Instruments Reaktor.
THE CHILLER is an omni-synthesizer which includes a bass section, synth section and a string section. Inspired by the ARP Omni, it is very easy to use and offers a synthetic orchestra on hand.
The instrument delivers a sound cold, reminiscent of the eighties and the new wave. The bass section is monophonic (active from C0 to C4) and other sections cover the entire keyboard. All sections can be played together.
In the autumn, let’s play with the chiller.
The Chiller is a free download. Donations are appreciated.
Tranz8ight4 Version 2
The TR-84 has two independent 16 beat sequencers, each driving a bank of Sine-PW oscillators
and Noise-PW generators. The oscillators and generators use an interactive modulation matrix, producing a powerful complex multitude of varying tones that react to each other. Switch on the Jammer and it will improvise and interact with the sequencer taking a basic pattern in new directions. The Jammer creates a more complex rhythmic variation extending the loop cycle way beyond the original.
On the mixer side we have dynamic filters, a compressor limiter, reverbs, delays and modulated effects that can sync to the Jammer. The TR-84 has a matrix patch-bay that lets you chain effects in any order, inserting them into the mixer sends. Put all this together and you have a Dynamic Improvised Analog Percussive Loop Generator (Drum Machine) that thinks it’s a Didgeridoo. Plus……….. The TR-84 has Midi in so you can play it from your Controller or DAW.
