Electric for Reaktor 5+
The Electric metamusic ensemble is a multifunction, polyphonic analog emulation synthesizer providing professional-quality presets and comprehensive functionality in a clean, simple, and compact design.
The instrument contains audio, effects and modulation sections, as follows.
- Audio Path. MIDI input controls up to four sound sources: three separately tunable oscillators, plus colored noise, with FM, sync, and vintage drift emulation. The mixed sound sources feed a multimode filter, with comb and dual split modes. The filter routes through optional distortion and variable saturation into a stereo VCA with audio-rate modulation by envelope 1, plus voice-separated pan.
- Effects Path.. The stereo output passes into a multistage effects chain. A 3-band EQ precedes the insert and send effects. The insert may be either a phaser or chorus. The send may be either reverb or delay. The send effect passes into a separate 2-band EQ before entering a final amplitude gate.
- Modulation Matrix. A modulation matrix applies up to five different modulations from 10 sources (2 envelopes, 2 polyphonic LFOs, note pitch, aftertouch, velocity, and XY pad) to the most effective destinations. Hardwired modulations from the mod wheel are also routed throughout the instrument.
