Flintpope has announced the release of SIX, a synthesizer instrument for Native Instruments Reaktor with surprising sound design capabilities.
SIX is designed to create soundscapes and experimental tones.
The outputs of five independent oscillators and a bank of atmospheric sounds are mixed together then routed via an LFO (LFO 1) and various FX.
LFO 1 can modulate a set of the FX parameters and the oscillator/ambient noise parameters to make the sounds move and develop, often in unpredictable ways. So far so good, but then it gets more interesting as a second LFO (LFO 2) can then modulate LFO 1 for even more movement.
And why stop there? LFO 1 can also modulate LFO 2 for new levels of sound morphing. Any blue dot under a dial means the LFO MOD has been activated for that parameter.
Unsure what a control does? Turn info hints ON with the “i” logo top right of Reaktor’s GUI then hover the mouse over anything for a pop-up to appear.
SIX includes 60 presets in 5 banks. It is available for purchase for £9.99 GBP. Requires the full version of Reaktor 6.
