Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Reaktor 5.5.1 is out (for some time...)
« on: December 03, 2010, 07:15:52 PM »
I'm quite sure some people here use Reaktor in their music.

Yes, it's out and revamped. And free update.
User interface has changed.
NI tried to make it look "Ableton-ized".
Still not decided is I like it or not, even if it looks quite neat.
They have added 2 new synthesis modules: additive and modal.
Now it includes Electronic Instruments 1 & 2, which is a pretty good deal if you ask me!
Some revisions to audio engine have been done.
Overall, I'm hoping it brings more sonic possibilities and easier navigation.

Yes, you have read correctly.  ::)
I've read that titled short article here:

The American Society of Composers Authors and Publishers "has sent a fundraising letter out to most of its 380,000 members raising money to fight organizations like Creative Commons, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and Public Knowledge."
The letter can be found here:
ASCAP accuses them that "their mission is to spread the word that our music should be free."
That's bizarre... Looks like those people don't accept huge changes in music distribution taking place as we speak (read).
At the bottom of the page you will find interesting video interview with Trent Reznor (NIN) talking (among other things) about NIN albums releases under Creative Commons and his opinion about digital distribution.
BTW, he has a nice studio, lots of modules, sequencers, and stuff. ;)

Press release notes:

After the well received debut Submerged, Phaenon follows things up with an even deeper immersion into a world of bleak, isolationist sounds. Whereas Submerged was one long and infinitely expansive drone piece, His Master’s Voice is broken up into four separate, but flowing tracks of sprawling and spacious ambient drift, laced with interstellar disturbances, probing, alien tones and icy shards of celestial debris…a whirling specter of darkness and void-icy space, thematically based  upon the 1968 novel of the same name by Stanislaw Lem, which is centered around the efforts  by scientists to decode, translate and understand a series of extraterrestrial transmissions. As a whole, His Master’s Voice represents a logical progression in Phaenon’s sound and is the ultimate in headphone listening.
