MPT Deep House Synth for Reaktor

Here’s the (almost) free Deep House Synth for Reaktor, from Danny J. Lewis of Music Production Tutorials.

You can get the Deep House Synth almost for free, or rather, for a tweet or a facebook post, which is an interesting use of networking – it makes the phrase “social capital” rather literal.

In this second video, Danny discusses the internal structure of the synth:

Update: if you’re feeling nervous about giving Pay With A Tweet write access to your Twitter or FB timeline, you can always edit your FB or Twitter app settings afterwards to revoke access to your account from this app. Your FB app settings are here. Twitter app settings are here. If you’ve never visited those settings pages before, you might be surprised at what already has write access to your timelines.

Carbon 2 modification in the library

Reaktor user Alexander Haberer has created a reskinned and sonically modified version of the Carbon 2 ensemble, called My Carbon, that features a healthy quantity of very usable snapshots organized into categories – bass, lead, pad, FX and keys.

I just checked and it plays very nicely with my Chroma sequencer, particularly with the legato glide patches. Load it in a separate instance of Reaktor rather than pasting the instrument into Chroma, though, because My Carbon’s snaps are stored at the ensemble level rather than in the instrument.

Here is a cool and unique sounding Reaktor synth from salamanderanagram. It began with inspiration from the Operator synth from Ableton Live then took a detour. Nice GUI, great sounds, fairly light on CPU. Thumbs up!
