Guitar and Slide Flute Synthesis using Reaktor
In this tutorial you will learn how to design a guitar synthesizer using only noise oscillators, and a slide flute based on the Perry Cook model.
In this tutorial our Reaktor guru, Salamanderanagram, creates a Guitar Synthesizer and a Slide Flute based on the Perry Cook model. Two great sounding instruments that can be used in a wide range of musical genres and production styles. Salamanderanagram’s approach is pretty straight forward and easy to follow, but if for some reason you have trouble, make sure to post a comment down below or seek help in the forum.
The first instrument we will be designing is a Guitar Synthesizer. Because of the range of dynamics a player can perform, the guitar is an extremely hard instrument to recreate via a synthesizer. Salamanderanagram’s Reaktor programming skills really shine through on this one, as he does a great job at recreating an accurate representation of an acoustic guitar.
The second instrument we will be creating is a Slide Flute based upon the Perry Cook model. Again, Salamanderanagram does a great job of showing how to create such a versatile and great sounding instrument. The delay and the feedback really help to create a great sounding Slide Flute.
