Native Instruments continue to bolster their REAKTOR Blocks platform with a new free update that introduces a new Blocks family - Kodiak.
The new Blocks 1.3 update now offers users five new modules to use in their productions or performances, including two innovative sequencers, one oscillator, a morphing filter, and an experimental noise generator. Unlike other Block modules which are loosely based on hardware used in the Eurorack modular synth platform, the new inclusions are not modelled on any specific hardware, instead the new Kodiak modules are a hybrid of analog and digital synthesis.
Blocks 1.3 also includes five completely new ensembles built around the new Kodiak modules — each effectively a brand new synth. The ensembles feature over 200 carefully put together presets, showcasing the analog soul and digital brain of the Kodiak family.
