    Reaktor References
    Hello, I am learning Reaktor Structure meaning diving into the Modules and Macros, Core Cells and Reaktor Structure section of the reference guides. I have run across a couple of things; one is that classic synth structure documentation is left out because these are designed by a third party and are built on the building blocks given in the Modules reference. The other thing is that the "Modules and Macros reference doesn't have a Macro section but Macros are include in the Core Cells Section. As I study this I try to, lets say, design along with the references. But, my tendency is to try to understand everything in the structure so I want to attain as much documentation as available. If anyone else is doing the same I hope you post on here. The other thing I noticed is that some synths such as Reaktor Prism doesn't seem to work with other instruments but seems to need to have full control of the output section. Also, for my setup the Prism structure isn't in a box but it's inside the box like after it's opened. Thanks, Alan

    Hi Alan, Have you viewed my tutorial - Reaktor Revealed? [url]http://www.macprovideo.com/tutorial/reaktor-revealed-brian-cass-ni[/url] I'm not sure exactly what you'd be looking for in documentation on the Classic Synth macros. It maybe best to study classic synthesis itself. For example(s) - [url]http://www.macprovideo.com/tutorial/avfundamentals201[/url] [url]http://www.macprovideo.com/tutorial/advancedsynthesis[/url] Hope this helps. - b

    Hello brain, yes I did study it some but I ran out of time because I spent to much time on Massive and Kontakt. I did a week subscription through my iPhone. But, it's good to meet you through the forum. I like your tutorial but I wish it did more from what I could see. Let me explain below. I look at the Macro/empty but I can't find any documentation on that. I read on another forum that macros are not in the "Modules and Macros" reference but Macros are covered in the other one "Core Cells". Here's the thing: When it comes to the classic synths (sequencers) such as the "Blue Matrix" or Blue Matrix seq", which show up differently in the structure,I didn't think there was any documentation at first. Then I started thinking; the design is the property of the designer so there wouldn't be any. Then, I looked at the structure of "Blue Matrix" and I noticed none of those are available to the user but if you go deeper in to all those pages you finally get down to the components that are. Needless to say, if I was to go into the Blue Matrix it could take weeks for me to build that for practice. My idea was to get some synth control into it so the sequencer is driven by a midi in rather than play it self. I have some electronics background so it's not difficult for me to understand what's going on but making it work can be more difficult unless I have studied a great deal of it already. The real question is the "Prism" not being useable with other synths. What I did was paste it into an empty macro. I'm thinking that the player synths shouldn't be inside macros or core cells. This is what I want to know about certain synths. I'm just looking for a straight understanding on these synths. I plan to study the references more to see if I can get a better understanding. It's not that I don't want to read them it's that it's necessary that I apply them to an instance of Reaktor at the same time. I will take out another subscription just to do your Reaktor tutorial. I think the understand it gives will really help and if you like I will post back to tell you my thoughts. I think you cover a lot. Thanks Brain! It's great to hear from the voice on the tutorial. Best, Alan Warrick

    Hello, using the ensemble One Osc inside a core cell I notice that the adsr envelope doesn't really have a signal going into it. I checked to see if this had a wireless input but the gate is for changing a signal from low to high so I don't see any audio going into this. I would be interested in knowing what I'm not seeing in this cell. Thanks, Alan Warrick

    Hello, I'm glad I found this post. I actually put up another one two years later after this one. What I'm curious about is if people still use these synths - the ones used to design with the structure. I have noticed that the player synths are newer and easier to use but don't include the ability to use in designing synths without a lot of skill. It seems when Native Instruments comes out with a new version a few synths are added but, all the previous synths are included in the newer packages. There's nothing wrong with this because mixing these two together - the old and the new can lead to creativity. But, my question really is; do designers actually still do this structure design or is it out. I notice the new tutorials that come out seem to major on Maschine and some newer stuff found in Komplete.
