Free Software Synthesizer From Native Instruments, Mikro Prism

Free Software Synthesizer for Mac & PC

Free Music Software: Native Instruments has introduced Mikro Prism, a free instrument, based on the Reaktor Prism synthesizer.

Using the same sound engine as its bigger brother and REAKTOR 5.5’s new dynamic ”Modal Bank” technology, Mikro Prism offers 70 presets, built-in cabinet simulation, filter, flanger, echo and reverb effects and even some seasonal bell and chime sound.

All parameters are accessible through automatable macro controls, including two synchronized internal modulation circuits.

Creating new sounds with Mikro Prism is easy using the preset morphing feature of Reaktor or the free Reaktor 5 Player: Select two presets (“snapshots”), and use the morph fader to seamlessly morph between the two sounds. You can even use your MIDI controller to dynamically morph while you’re playing.

Mikro Prism is a free software synthesizer for Mac & Windows and is available now at the NI site.

Free Modular Synthesizer For Your Web Browser – Patchwork

Developer Peter van der Noord has announced Patchwork, a free Flash-based modular synthesizer:

Patchwork is a Flash application for realtime modular sound synthesis. You can connect basic sound generation or modification modules to create either music, effects or utter noisy crap. Although at the moment it has an interface for creating a so-called patch, you will in the future be able to run your creations standalone, which means: in your own site or game.

Patchwork is inspired by applications like Max/MSP & Reaktor, but van der Noord says it’s “a proof of concept.”

Native Instruments Reaktor Prism is a polyphonic instrument for Reaktor 5, based on physical modeling synthesis.

Prism produces a sound that can be dramatically modified via internal or external sources. The result is a wide-ranging synth, equally powerful for hard basses and digital leads as organic soundscapes, percussive keys, flutes and bells.

Reaktor Prism is available now for $79.
