Reaktor User Library - RUHR by Herwig Krass
In this video, I show the basics of using RUHR, a modular synth designed by Herwig Krass. RUHR is based on the Modular X framework, a very powerful system for creating modular synths with significant routing capabilities.
The most powerful aspect of RUHR, and the Modular X framework in general is the ability to create ensembles with an arbitrary signal path – meaning you can wire together the available devices in any order you choose. In today’s tutorial, I focus on creating a simple subtractive synthesizer.
Using RUHR properly requires a decent understanding of signal flow in a synth, and a little bit of patience as you figure out exactly how everything works. Once you do, you aren’t constrained to designing simple synths like in this video – with a little bit of know-how, you can easily create bizarre and crazy soundmakers in a matter of minutes.
