Native Instruments has released REAKTOR Blocks 1.3, which they describe as a substantial update to the virtual modular system, provided with REAKTOR 6. Here's the story in their own words...
Free for existing users, Blocks 1.3 introduces a new Blocks family: Kodiak. These five modules are not modelled on specific hardware. Instead, Kodiak modules combine analog character with digital power.
Blocks 1.3 also includes five new ensembles – each one a powerful new synthesizer in its own right. They showcase the five new modules, with over 195 new presets, covering everything from self-generating polyrhythmic techno grooves to Daft Punk-style vowel-filtered leads.
Pricing and Availability:
Blocks 1.3 is part of REAKTOR 6. REAKTOR 6 is available for purchase now at the NI Online Shop for $199 / 199 € / ¥ 24,800 / £169 / AU$279.
Existing REAKTOR 6, KOMPLETE 11, and KOMPLETE 11 ULTIMATE owners can download and install the update using Native Access.
