Let’s be real: Native Instruments’ Reaktor can be intimidating at first glance. But behind the complexity is an incredibly powerful modular synthesis environment that can create anything from synthesizers, grooveboxes, and sequencers to sample transformers, sound generators, and effects.
In Reaktor Modular Synthesis with David Earl, you’ll learn how to tweak Reaktor’s 70+ included instruments and make your own from scratch. David is Native Instrument’s product specialist and he knows the software inside and out. He’ll teach:
Working with Ensembles, Instruments, Macros and Modules
Oscillators, filters and amplifiers
Parameters like pitch, wave type, filters, resonance and cutoff
Linear and event messages
Creating a partial with math modules
Working with amplifiers and modulators
What IS FM synthesis and how does it work?
Changing partials into operators for FM synthesis
Creating an approximation of the FM 8 using a mod matrix
Different types of samplers: FM, Loop, Grain
Creating sample maps
Creating hybrid synths
Reaktor doesn’t have to be overwhelming, David will help you overcome the fear of Reaktor’s complexity and unlock its potential.

This is a GREAT class. I highly recommend it. Reaktor can be intimidating, but little by little he breaks it down. I feel like I have gotten practical use out of it from watching these videos. There is so much to learn here. I have come back multiple times to watch. David Earl is a superior instructor. You will enjoy him. I hope he will do more here.

David Earl (he doesn't care what you call him) is the best! I watched so many tutorials on Reaktor and by his second video I already learned more than the other ones. Thank you!
