Reaktor Tutorial: Sound Design w/ Native Instruments – Creating a Filter w/ Modulation

More info:

In the latest video tutorial with Dubspot's sound design course designer and instructor Evan Sutton, we explore filter cutoff modulation in Native Instruments' Reaktor.

This tutorial will focus on filter cutoff modulation in Reaktor. If you're new to Reaktor programming, it may be a good idea to check out some of our previous Reaktor tutorials on building a basic synth.

To get started, we'll add a filter between the oscillator and master fader of a bare bones synthesizer. Reaktor has many different filter modules to choose from, most of which have multiple outputs. For this particular synth, we'll keep it simple and use the Pro-52 filter, which is a low pass filter developed to sound like the legendary Curtis filters from the Sequential Circuits Prophet 5. Remember that in the modular world, an envelope is an envelope, so we'll use the same basic ADSR setup to modulate the cutoff. The sticking point here is that many of the filters in Reaktor use a specific unit to measure frequency. Once you get the hang of it, routing control in Reaktor becomes a delightful walk in the modular park. – Evan Sutton
