Native Instruments Expands Reaktor Blocks With 5 new Modules

Native Instruments has released Reaktor Blocks 1.3, an update to their virtual modular system, that  introduces a new Blocks family: Kodiak.

These five modules are not modeled on specific hardware. Instead, Native says that the modules are designed to ‘combine analog character with digital power’.

Blocks 1.3 also includes five new ensembles, each one a synthesizer in its own right. They showcase the five new modules, with over 195 new presets, covering everything from self-generating polyrhythmic techno grooves to Daft Punk-style vowel-filtered leads.

Pricing and Availability

Blocks 1.3 is part of Reaktor 6, which is available for $199 / 199 € / ¥ 24,800 / £169 / AU$279.. The update is free to current Reaktor 6 users.
