Intro To Reaktor: Sound Design Video Tutorial w/ Native Instruments Komplete

YouTube Preview Image

Dubspot instructor and Sound Design & Synthesis curriculum co-designer Evan Sutton will walk you through some of the basic principles of using Reaktor, Native Instruments’ versatile and highly customizable modular software and production tool. Starting with simple library management, and working through various naming and organizational concepts, you will achieve a basic understanding of the Reaktor environment. The last thing he explains is how to customize a factory ensemble by adding an effect.

Reaktor is a powerful object-oriented programming environment capable of creating a large variety of custom synthesizers, sequencers, and effects. Included with the software is a factory library full of ensembles and instruments created by advanced users. As you delve deeper and deeper into this environment, you’ll begin to work towards creating your own instruments and ensembles.

It’s important to remember that the library is not developed as extensively NI’s flagship synthesizers (Massive, for example), and as a result, there are more idiosyncrasies, and less documentation.

Become fluent in the language of sound design with this comprehensive program. This six-level Sound Design & Synthesis program uses Native Instruments’ Komplete 7 as a platform for learning synthesis and sampling techniques. Starting with an introduction to the properties of sound, this comprehensive series of courses covers most common synthesis methods available for music production in the DAW of your choice.

Discovering the right sound is like finding a needle in the digital haystack. Learn the fundamentals to make this easier, and gain the depth of knowledge to make a good sound better. Factory content is great, but everyone has it – your mix needs something special.

What’s Included:

  • Sound Design Level 1: Introduction to Komplete 8
  • Sound Design Level 2: Synthesis with Massive, FM8 and Absynth
  • Sound Design Level 3: Sampling with Kontakt and Battery
  • Sound Design Level 4: Advanced Sound Design
  • Sound Design Level 5: Reaktor Ensembles and Instruments
  • Sound Design Level 6: Reaktor Programming

I was seriously considering signing up for this online course as I’m not in a position to come down to your location twice a week.

However, I just tried watching the video and it is sufficiently blurred that it can’t be watched for any length of time.

Glad I discovered this before signing up.
