Reaktor 5.9.2 Overview
In this video, I cover all of the new features in the just-released Reaktor 5.9.2.
Of course, we are all hopeful that Reaktor 6 is just around the corner, so news of a new point upgrade of R5 is bound to upset some people. However, this is a pretty big update with a lot of new stuff.
There are two new modules – the Automation module, and the Hardware module. In addition, there are several improvements to existing modules such as the Voice Info module, and the Mouse Area.
Personally, I’m most excited by the changes to the Mouse Area module, which has a new output, ‘MO’ (MouseOver), which tells you when the mouse is hovering over the module. This allows you to create substantially more dynamic GUI elements.
The changes to the Voice Info module are pretty great as well – creating a polyphonic Unison effect is substantially easier and less clunky than it used to be.
There is also a new Reaktor VST version with 16 inputs and 16 outputs, which gives you a lot more flexibility than the previous 6-in, 6-out version.
