NI REAKTOR 6 Intro Video

"Blocks" brings the experience of a rack mounted modular synth into the world of Digital Music Production. It allows the user to create custom instruments through patching, just like a traditional modular synth. Reaktor 6 comes with 30 different "Blocks". Each are designed for its own specific purpose (sound shaping, rhythms, etc) and the possibilities for sound creation are truly endless.

It seems the main ambition of NI for Reaktor 6 is to empower its' users to make the most innovative sounds. In their press release, Native Instruments expresses the excitement over seeing what Reaktor users can create and contribute. Users are encouraged to share their creations within the Reaktor community. These contributions are available via the Reaktor library on the Native Instruments website. To help users understand the process of modular synthesis and the power of Reaktor 6, Native Instruments has developed an online course with Kadenze that covers all aspects of audio synthesis methods.

For existing users of Reaktor and students, version 6 costs $99 (US/EU) and $199 (US/EU) for first time buyers. Check out the full press release below and video for more information.
