From the team that brought you Reaktor but not the film, NI have released a new synth Skanner XT. In their words;
“Part sampler, part synth, SKANNER XT utilizes a unique synthesizer architecture to create a wide variety of intense and cutting-edge sounds for contemporary electronic music production and sound design. Two oscillators ‘scan’ a sample, which at low frequencies deliver a scratch sound. At higher frequencies the oscillators, shaped by the sample waveform, become the dominant force. In this way, SKANNER XT provides a broad range of highly distinctive sounds - from heavy and dirty bass tones to morphing soundscapes and organic pads.”
It can work as a sound library for Reaktor and also within REAKTOR 5 PLAYER, it’s low cost too! Review coming soon.
