  1. I think it's awesome to see NI promoting Reactor instruments. Reaktor seemed to have lost the love for a little while back there.

  2. Vokator was much cooler…. It seems ni discontinued many of their great instruments just to sell watered down versions a year later…. WTF.

  3. Just got it last night. Its a lot of fun. Used as a send effect it can do some amazing stuff.

    The midi out works too but the internal synths seem to track vocals much better. I am still learning everything it can do. Its pretty deep.

    It was only 20$ with a coupon I had for ages. Nice of NI not to kill old coupon! Class!

  4. just got it last night, got lost in it for hours. seems to be a big part of james blake's sound.

    1)if you download it it works as a 30min demo until activated.
    2)if you get reaktor free you usually can't use the free reaktor patches around online (in response to dapunk)

  5. Hey @mymymetrocard (nice reference btw), how can you download as a demo without buying? Would *love* to get a demo of this.
