Behold the Reakt0r

Myninjas, when I attempt to describe the ninja-blasting potential of different synthesizers to you (in these posts, and in the greater soundscape), I can only offer you different aspects of certain instruments, midi structures and samplers that people like Ableton and Propellerhead have taken the time to create.

That being said, for the more esoteric ninja for whom the current synthetic lexicon is never vast enough, Native Instruments Reaktor 5 allows the discriminating r0b0tninja to forge his own weapons of mass destruction and distribute them worldwide in the online Reaktor 5 user library. Good luck battling the US military, although as a r0b0tic ninja you probably have more important things to worry about…

The Reaktor core is unlike anything else. While several audio applications can mangle audio into feedback loops, leading to chain reactions of deafening proportions, inside the Reaktor, highly unstable elements can be multiplied together exponentially. Different levels of macrocosmic and cellular elements can be combined to form instruments, the user able to arrange and assign knobs and sliders to any of the endlessly customizable inner connections. Combine that with its ability to be used as a VST (virtual instrument) inside Live or Logic or whatever, and you begin to understand the pure nature of its sonic potential; as in life, the uninitiated will risk certain deafness, while the pr0b0t faces only the risks of being def.
