Sonic Academy Making A Synth In Reaktor TUTORiAL DVDR | 618.6MB
In this Sonic Academy video course, we get you to grips with Native Instruments’ Reaktor 5 – an incredibly powerful and versatile audio processing system. Reaktor can be used as a synthesizer, sampler, effects processor, groovebox, step sequencer, and much more.
It's got a completely modular structure, imposing no limits on your imagination as you invent your own electronic instruments and sound effects. Making a Synth in Native Instruments Reaktor, we cover the very basics and show you how to create a simple, two-oscillator synthesizer. Includes sample and project files.
• Learn to make music online, in your own time and at your own pace;
• Learn quickly from our high quality video tutorials, presented by industry professionals;
• Get the most from your equipment – there is nothing more frustrating than having kit and not being able to use it. You want to make music and Sonic Academy tutorials show you how!

A general overview of Reaktor, and a comparison with other synths.
Lesson 1 - Reaktor Setup
Opening Reaktor within Abelton and setup up of auto-save. Creating a new ensemble
Lesson 2 - Adding an Instrument
Creation of a new 2 in 2 out instrument within Reaktor
Lesson 3 - Tool Menus
A walk through of the tool menus in Reaktor and an quick explaination on each.
Lesson 4 - Importing An Oscillator
Importing an oscillator into your Reakor patch and the difference between constant and control
Lesson 5 - Oscillator Types
Adding a second oscillator type to your patch and a comparsion with functions within Sylenth
Lesson 6 - MIDI Gates & Master Gain
Adding controls to your oscillator patch, such as midi data inputs and a master gain
Lesson 7 - MIDI Note Pitch
Inserting a note pitch function, allowing you to play your synth from your keyboard
Lesson 8 - Envelope Setup
Expanding your oscillator to include envelope controls, and changing these controls from knobs to horizontal faders
Lesson 9 - Creating Multiple Oscillators
Adding two more oscillators to your patch - a Tri sync and a sine sync and connecting the MIDI and envelope controls to both
lesson 10 - Switches
The creation of four differing types of oscillators within a patch and the setup of the switch function to scroll through each oscillator. Also the labelling of the switches
Lesson 11 - Switch Menu Styles
Having setup our oscillator types, in this section we learn how to use and create different menu styles to mimic other synths.
Lesson 12 - Macros
An Introduction to the macro function within Reaktor showing how macro's can tidy an otherwise cluttered screen
Lesson 13 - Macros Continued
Following on from the first look at macro's, this section delves deeper and explains how once created they can be used else where in the patch.
Lesson 14 - Adding Volume Control
To further replicate the Sylenth oscillator section, we look at how you add volume control to your synth
Lesson 15 - Pan Control
Expanding the oscillator patch to now include stereo panning and stereo outputs
Lesson 16 - Adding Octave Control Using Lists
Here we look at adding a octave control to the oscillator section and using the marco to do so
lesson 17 - Semi Tone And Fine Pitch Control
Adding and creating list sections, allowing greater control over semi-tone and fine pitch of the waveform.
Lesson 18 - Using Knobs Instead Of Lists
Having setup the pitch controls, this section shows the different button styles. How they are used, you decided.
Lesson 19 - Creating a Filter With An On/Off Switch
Now that the oscillator and envelope have been completed it is time to insert and build a filter section into the signal path
Lesson 20 - Duplicating Oscillators & Adding Retrigger Control
In this section we duplicate the oscillator section and insert a re-trigger switch
Lesson 21 - Comparing Our Created Synth With Sylenth
With the oscillator, envelope and filter now inserted, we compare the charateristics of both reaktor and sylenth
