I'm taking my first commercial release to market now and I'm running a kickstarter with instrument pre sales to get the money I need to cover licensing costs and set up my website.

I am fully licensed by NI to release instruments under the Reaktor Player platform and this instrument will be a Powered by Reaktor release similar to Razor, Monark, the Finger and others.

You will not need the full version of Reaktor, it will run in the Free Reaktor Player.

Kickstarter...

Please let me know if you have any questions about my instrument.

If anyone has recommendations about other audio forums where people might be interested in this type of instrument please let me know.

Michael.

I am very interested in this Reaktor ensemble, and will definitely be checking it out if/when it is actually fully released.

But having been burned three times on Kickstarter campaigns, including once on a plugin (although luckily I haven’t lost much money, as they were all reasonably small), I just don’t have any interest in participating in that (pre)funding approach any more. I have no reason whatsoever to doubt your intentions or ability to see this through, and wish you success with the campaign, as I do understand that Kickstarter fills a worthy role. Good luck!

I totally understand the kickstarter hesitation, I was kind of hesitant to use it for that exact reason.

Alright, let me know which color scheme looks the best to you.

The left is the standard color of the controls and the right is what color they turn when you trigger a command.

let me know what you like the most, 1-5 from the top down.A lot of people said that they like the instrument but hate the interface, so let me know what color scheme you like.

It seems to me that a lot of people are interested in this instrument but they dislike the user interface, so we're now working with a great designer on getting a new and improved UI put together.

we'll see how things look next week after he finishes what he's doing and we can get started on the new UI design.

Looks and sounds fascinating. Just lose that comic sans font and I'll bite.

It was copperplate actually :hihi:

I'm redoing the interface now, and there's a guy way better than me at graphics who's going to give it a look next week.

Here is the newest and current gui, take a look and see what you think.

I took a few suggestions from cal's posts and played with them until I liked the results.

I went with light color boxes around the different control areas because I felt that darker and lighter ones where distracting to the eye.

I got rid of every stock graphic in the entire system.
