Top 12 Instruments for NI Reaktor (Free Download)

Native Instruments Reaktor has been around for ages and the factory synths that come with it like Razor, Monark, Form, and Rounds to just name a few, are incredible.

But Reaktor is a complete DSP environment to build your own instruments and effects. And the online user library has been growing for over a decade so we decided to round up the best ones from recent years. We chose ones that not only sound good but also have a friendly and good looking interface.

Clear out your schedules.

The Swarmatron

Emulation of the peculiar cluster synth Dewanatron Swarmtron. Used by Trent Reznor for The Social Network movie soundtrack.

The Swarmatron was created to produce eight tones tuned approximately to one note, each tone slightly different in pitch to produce a complex and natural choral effect.

Very strange and eerie sound.

Download


KraftStrom

This one is hard to explain. The interface is mostly suggestive and everything fills like using some sort of a post-apocalyptic machine. It can create a huge variety of strange and experimental sounds.
