Native Instruments has released for Superbooth 2019 SUPER 8, a new virtual analog polyphonic Synthesizer for Reaktor 6 (Player). SUPER 8 is heavily inspired by vintage analog poly Synthesizers and features two oscillators (with FM), two env & LFO’s, effects and more.
All the features are packed in a modern, intuitive interface and comes with-in total over 200 presets. An interesting easy-to-use virtual analog synth, but somehow lacking in advanced deep features or?
With SUPER 8, users can start creating right away by choosing from 200+ presets – including rich analog strings, ethereal pads, deep basses, biting leads, electronic percussion, and unusual effects. Patches were inspired by iconic analog synths, but SUPER 8 has a character all its own. Modern presets provide combinations of oscillators, filters, and modulation settings that wouldn’t have been possible on original hardware.
SUPER 8 makes it fun and easy to tweak sounds through a clean, next-generation interface. Simple sliders enable users to blend up to four waveforms for each of the two oscillators. They can mix the oscillators, sync them, and add FM oscillation for a digital edge. Users can also adjust low-pass, band-pass, or high-pass filtering, then move ASDR sliders to make quick changes to filter and amplifier envelopes.
The interface’s modulation section lets users easily add motion to sounds. They can choose one or more mod waveforms, then dial in speed and phase. For maximum creative flexibility, users can capitalize on mod routing to map almost any source to any destination.
Users can explore the full creative possibilities of SUPER 8 by controlling the instrument with a MIDI controller. Driving the SUPER 8 pitch wheel, mod wheel, and touch strip from a controller can produce expressive leads, shifting soundscapes, and evolving textures. Users can set parameters directly from the interface’s front page – or take advantage of automatic parameter mapping with a KOMPLETE KONTROL keyboard. Flexible mod routing enables users to adjust pitch, modulation, filtering, keytracking, and other parameters in real-time.
Native Instruments SUPER 8 is available now for $69 USD / 69 EUR / £59 GBP for Reaktor 6 and Reaktor 6 Player.
