Sound Design w/ NI’s Reaktor: Rolodecks (Twisted Tools) New Multi-FX VST + Maschine

One of the interesting things that I find in my travels working for Native Instruments, is that there seem to be a whole lot of people out there who don’t really understand what Reaktor is. Reaktor tends to be the one instruments from NI that actually scares people because it looks so complex and sophisticated. Reaktor is a completely modular system that allows you to build virtually any digital audio device that you can imagine. At Dubspot, we teach our Sound Design & Synthesis students how to dive deep into Reaktor’s guts to create their own custom synthesizers and gain a greater appreciation for modular synthesis.

In this video, we look at the Rolodecks effect unit from Twisted Tools. This fantastic ensemble is a wonderful example of just how advanced Reaktor can be. Practically building the effect unit from scratch, Twisted Tools was able to create a sophisticated multi-effect unit inside of Reaktor that is simply effective and easy to use. Having a deeper knowledge of not only Reaktor, but the modular components that are the basis of Synthesis, will allow you to create such exciting instruments and effects like Rolodecks.

If you are interested in concepts as heavy as building custom modular instruments, or you simply want to understand what an amplitude envelope is, Dubspot can help. Our Sound Design and Synthesis course is an incredibly detailed look at all the relative concepts. No matter if you are just starting out with your first synthesizer, already know how to utilize LFOs and Filters, or if you are well on your way to creating your own presets, the SDS course can help you become a master sound designer. We utilize the powerful tools inside of Native Instrument’s Komplete bundle to teach and explain all sorts of concepts like Subtractive/Additive/FM synthesis, sampling and sound layering, effect processing, etc. But you aren’t just “book learning” here. Everything is taught and carried out from a musical production standpoint. The students are learning about these concepts and creating musical ideas and compositions at the same time so the learning experience is actually applied to real life production techniques.

Sound Design & Synthesis Certificate Program

See dates and register for NYC and online classes!

You will learn to create your own sounds through different techniques and then go beyond the presets, adding a sonic signature to your tracks. For composition with acoustic instruments, we introduce you to the latest sampling technology and give you access to the world’s largest and most diverse sound library. In the advanced levels, you will acquire total control over all aspects of the instruments presented in courses 1 through 3 while practicing genre-based sound design. And with Reaktor, you will get access to some of the more unusual tools of synthesis, step sequencing, beat making and effects: all elements used in today’s cutting edge electronic music.
