Bronto Scorpio Music has released Dronebox, a free ensemble for Native Instruments Reaktor.
The main inspiration for this ensemble were those awesome demos of modular synths you often find on the internet.
When watching those videos I’m often thinking “Don’t ever turn a knob again! That’s the best sound ever!” *Guy in the video turns a knob* “Wait! That’s even better! Now definitely never turn a knob again!”. I tried to capture this feeling with this ensemble.
It comes with a bunch of presets, but it’s really meant to be tweeked and explored. The whole thing can be a bit unpredictable, as there is a lot of feedback going on, but that’s part of the fun! Many of the controls are somewhat cryptic, but you’ll eventually get a feeling for each of them.
Dronebox is a free download. Requires full version of Reaktor 5.8 or higher.

Boscomac has announced the release of Delight Delay, a free delay effect ensemble for Native Instruments Reaktor.
The Delight Delay effect for Native Instruments Reaktor.
DELIGHT DELAY is a pattern-based delay controlled by a sequencer.
A central display allows you to set the level and filtering rehearsals and so draw a pattern. You can set the number of repetitions (1 to 15) determine the tempo (1/4 to 1/32), adjust the stereo (mono or pingpong) and adjust the blend.
Very easy to use, this delay grooves with guitars, runs with synths, installs synchronized vibes and many other things …
The ensemble is a free download for Reaktor (requires full version). Donations are appreciated.

Multiples Pro has announced the release of Padded Cell: Aftermath and Dust: Subtractor, two new free sound packs.
Aftermath is the latest title in the Padded Cell series of sound design sample libraries.
This time we used the mighty Absynth from Native Instruments to create 50 separate sound-scapes using samples crafted in earlier sample libraries released here on Multiples Pro.
Padded Cell: Aftermath features
- 200 Rhythmical Loops recorded at 120bpm.
- 100 Old School sounds made using the E|Loops X3 sample library.
- 50 brand new loops created with Absynth using Dust: Imposcar, Dust: Minimoog, Dust: MPBASIC, Padded Cell: Granulab and ABass XL.
- All 50 sounds then “Celled” in the usual way.
The Aftermath pack is a free download in .WAV format.
The Dust: Subtractor pack includes 10 multi-sampled sounds created with the Subtractor synthesizer in Propellerhead Reason.
This is one of our favourite synthesisers and continues to dominate many of our tracks to this day due to it’s sound and bite which is often missing from today’s software instruments.
We have created 10 sounds for you to use in your productions which ooze these characters as well as provide a nice back-bone to the bass and lead ends of your tunes.
The Subtractor pack is available to download in .WAV, Kontakt 4+, Maschine 1.8+, and MPSampler/Reaktor formats.

Icebreaker Audio has released Calc-U-Synth VR for Reaktor, an emulation of the classic Casio VL-Tone calculator/synthesizer combo from the ’80s.
Calc-U-Synth VR is a re-creation of the programmable Casio VL-Tone synthesizer for Native Instruments Reaktor 5.
Precise measurements of the VL-Tone’s volume envelope, vibrato, and tremolo were then gathered in order to faithfully emulate the whole instrument in Reaktor.
This library was designed in order to present the full capabilities of the VL-Tone’s programmable features in a more convenient interface, while retaining the character of the original instrument.
Calc-U-Synth VR features
- Full emulation of the Casio VL-Tone’s programmable synth engine.
- Built-in tempo-sync delay effect.
- Speaker emulation with room simulation.
- Additional “Bend” controls: Glitch and Filter.
- Key-Click noise control.
The Calc-U-Synth VR for Reaktor is available to purchase for £4.50 GBP / $7 USD.

EverythingTurns has released PurPLe, a “Radiophonic Modular Analog Synthesiser – Sci-Fi Effect Generator” for Native Instruments Reaktor.
PurPLe takes its inspiration from the early days of synthesis and is dedicated to the pioneers of the sound effects departments that terrorised the audiences of the science fiction silver screen.
PurPLe’s sound is generated by free running multi-wave oscillators, each delivering a diverse waveform that can twist and warp almost as if it’s alive.
The key to this sonic arsenal is the Modulation Matrix Patch Bay, allowing the component parts of the synth to interact with each other. The Matrix opens up endless possibilities of frequency modulation and interaction by tapping into, chaining and merging the signal path. The more you explore the more possibilities you will discover.
PurPLE for Reaktor is available to purchase for £14 GBP. Requires Reaktor full version 5.8+.

The Chiller Omni-Synthesizer for Reaktor by Boscomac.
