Cloud Atlas 1.0 beta v1.0
By Frank Meyer

Grain Cloud Synth
Cloud Atlas 1.0 beta is a new granular synthesis ensemble for Native Instruments Reaktor (Full Version). At the core we find two independant grain cloud synths with a distinguished wavetable each. Additionally two waveform oscillators can be mixed to the granulated samples to add basic tonality and richness. The signal path is shaped by a 4-pole filter (LP, BP, HP), an ADSR-envelope and can be modulated by LFO. The LFO also can be routed to the waveform oscillators and the final amping stage. After the synthesis a phaser/flanger module can be added to the sound. Finally a stereo delay and a reverb can be mixed to the sound.

The resulting sounds are unique and are especially very useful to create strange soundscapes and moving pad atmospheres. But also percussive and lead sounds are at hand. Due to the grain synthesis every key hit sounds a bit different and enriches the timbre of each preset.

Cloud Atlas 1.0 beta is still in the development stage, but for testing and first creative results it is released as a beta to the clement public.


Grain Modulator v3.1
By santiago vilanova

Granular Sampler
Grain Modulator is a polyphonic granular sampler.

Most grain parameters can be modulated through dedicated LFO with multiple waveforms, BPM sync, simple shaping and quantization.

Although a simple old concept, it is capable of nice landscapes, robotic rhythms and modulation madness.

Some presets for the embedded sample map are included for your convenience.

Rick Scott's superb SpaceMaestro reverb is also added for spatialization means.



Berliner-3drums v1.0
By Nicholas Keller

MAQ163 style mono seq + drums
Mono sequencer controlling Junatik. Separate sequences for Pitch, Transpose, and Timing division. Each sequence has settings for timing, random, and lentgh. Also included are three original drum voices with gate sequencers for a reference rhythm while experimenting with Berliner.


Eardrum v1.1
By Charles Capsis IV

synthetic drum machine
eardrum is a synth-based drum machine with seven individual sound banks. 48 kits and 128 patterns are included. snapshots can be advanced with the NEXT button.



JP-4c Super Saw Emulation v1.6
By Alex Shore

JP-4c is a Reaktor patch designed to emulate the infamous Super Saw oscillator.

In 1996 Roland released the JP-8000, their first virtual analogue modeling synthesiser. The JP-8000 became very famous for one thing, the Super Saw. This unique sound helped define the trance music genre and is still commonly used in electronic dance music production today.

The JP-4c is a Reaktor patch designed to emulate the infamous Super Saw oscillator.

The JP-4c is built upon a combination of research conducted by myself and other individuals, with the patch being able to effectively emulate the original Super Saw's unique timbre. Detailed research and analysis of the Super Saw found that the oscillator exhibits some interesting characteristics giving it a particular sound.

Detune Curve
Perhaps the most important element is the detune curve. Whereas many synthesisers would commonly use a linear detune amount, the Super Saw was found to have a varying detune amount through the use of a curve. This curve allows the user a much finer control over the detune amount applied to the oscillator, allowing them to create very smooth sounds with a minimal amount of detune or seemingly harsh textures as the amount is increased. This parameter has been accurately implemented within the JP-4c to achieve the same detune characteristics as the original.

Oscillator Shape
The original Super Saw oscillator makes use of a high pass filter to cut the harmonics below the fundamental frequency. This filter helps give the Super Saw its characteristic bright sound by attenuating the low frequencies while also shaping the waveform, producing a smoothing effect seen at the peaks. This effect has been carefully recreated within the JP-4c to achieve the same rich tone as the original.

Along with these, additional features have also been reproduced and implemented including a built array of sound shaping controls and effects detailed below.


Super Saw Oscillator - Effective emulation of Roland's original layering of seven sawtooth waveforms

Second Oscillator - Four switchable waveform types (Triangle/Sine/Saw/Pulse)

Filter - Selectable Low Pass, Band Pass and High Pass with key follow

Modulation - 2x LFO, Filter Envelope and Pitch Envelope

Effects - Tone Control, Distortion, Reverb, Chorus, Delay and Portamento.

32 Factory Presets - 12 Leads, 8 Pads, 5 Plucks, 4 Basses and 2 Effects


This patch requires Native Instrument's Reaktor version 5.8 or later. Please refer to Reaktor's manual for further information.
