new synth is available for download now
SKANNER – our holiday gift for you: Stephan Schmitt’s raucous and exciting new synth is available for download now. SKANNER can be used either with the latest version (5.6.2) of the free REAKTOR 5 PLAYER, or REAKTOR 5.6.2.
Play samples like a synth – SKANNER will rip through your holiday lethargy.
“Created by Stephan Schmitt, SKANNER is an innovative, unorthodox instrument with a unique raw edge. It takes samples as source material and generates breathtaking new sounds, ranging from simple sine waves to walls of noise. A must-have for adventurous producers and sound designers, SKANNER is also completely free. Runs in the latest version (5.6.2) of the free REAKTOR 5 PLAYER, or REAKTOR 5.6.2. Download it today!”
Despite the complex synthesis going on under the hood, SKANNER couldn’t be easier to use. Two views offer different levels of interaction: The ‘A’ view features four macro controls that are mapped to multiple parameters – even subtle tweaks can create dramatic changes.
If you want to dig deeper into the architecture of SKANNER, the ‘B’ view (pictured here) provides access to more detailed parameters. Use SKANNER with REAKTOR 5.6 and you can replace the included samples with your own – discover their sonic potential when they get skanned. At the heart of SKANNER’s creative potential is the versatile Preset Morpher – morph between eight different snapshots for evolving sounds that are unworldly and unusual. The controls include morphing speed and LFO modulation – jam and morph from one extreme to another, and capture your performance in your DAW.*
