About Native Instruments Reaktor
5 Native Instruments Reaktor 5 is a hardware synthesizer plug-in for Windows and Mac, which faithfully emulates the legendary synths of Roland, Korg, Moog and more.
Native Instruments says that Reaktor 5 features the ability to process audio signals in real-time, with a new mixer and channel strip, plus a wide range of built-in effects, and a new Oscilloscope display for viewing modulations and frequency data.
The new ReWire 3 engine lets you attach any VST plugin to your track – in real time – without stopping the music, adds Meyer. It’s amazing how many applications this has.
Aurea is a parabolic-oscillator synthesizer available for free and is a plugin for NI Reaktor. It allows you to draw in your waveform. After your waveform is drawn in, the sound will follow it. It allows you to change the symmetry, strength and speed of the music.
If you’re not familiar with what a waveform is, imagine a sine curve. A straight line going up and then back down, with an amplitude (height) of one. Sine curves are very common in nature. Think about the sound of a bell. When you draw a sine curve, it’s called a “waveform.” You can make the curve go up, down, or stay the same, and you can adjust its amplitude (height), symmetry, and speed. Changing any of these affects the sound that results. For example, a high-amplitude, perfectly symmetrical curve produces a sharp, high-pitched noise.
