Native 64-bit support is provided and this enables the enhancement of grain lengths and modulation depths up to 60sec. It open the door towards huge, massive and long lasting evolving sound clouds.

Several background assistances ensures quicker workflows (there is e.g. an automatic setting of the filter mode if certain modulation modification are done by the user). This saves your time and creates more joy on your sound investigation.

The new morphing of presets / programs feature enables to morph between pre-stored plug-in programs without adding additional load to the CPU.

ADSR Sounds has launched Spektrumsynth, a powerful Reaktor synth with a wide variety of capabilities.

It features multiple synthesis technologies combined into one instrument: Wavetable, FM, subtractive, granular and noise shaping. Performance is enhanced with 4 “Interaktor” modules, which are a combination of arpeggiator and step sequencer.

With huge modulation routing capability, over 65 target parameters can be controlled simultaneously with recordable movement paths performed on the Animator Pad. Individual synthesizer sections can be controlled from a split keyboard, or stacked for complex and wonderful combinations.

Modulation ranges can be controlled by other modulators, similar to the “Sidechain” functions of Massive. Multiple filter types include FM-capable Pro52 filters. Signal paths are very flexible to access the filters.

Spektrumsynth is available to purchase for $49.99 USD. Requires full version of Native Instruments Reaktor.
