Native Instruments Reaktor Animated Circuits

Get Animated!
The most recent addition to the ever-growing library of Native Instruments’ Kore Soundpacks is Reaktor Animated Circuits, which apparently “explores the world of complex self-generating soundscapes, textures and rhythms”. Using a number of different sound generators from Reaktor, which are embedded in Kore 2 and the free Kore Player, the new Soundpack is designed to be the tool of choice for “deep, constantly fluctuating soundscapes”.

One of these sound generators, Spiral, sees its first public outing in Animated Circuits. According to the developers, it uses “concentric sequencing lanes and advanced algorithms to create continuously shifting, kaleidoscopic melodies, and can be routed into any sound source that accepts MIDI input”, which sounds very interesting indeed.

In total, there are 200 Kore Sounds in the Soundpack, each of which has eight variations per preset. Kore users who don’t have Reaktor get control over what the developers call “crucial” parameters, while Reaktor owners, naturally, get control over every perceiveable parameter of the generators.

The Reaktor Animated Circuits Soundpack is available from Native Instruments’ web store for 49 Euros which, at the time of writing, was around £42. In the USA, it costs $59. The Spiral sound generator is available for free to registered users of Reaktor 5, from the NI Service Centre.
