I wouldn't say that the Nano Pack is harder to learn with than any of the other packs, the main thing making the Nano Pack a little overwhelming at the start is the number of blocks in the pack (around 500), you should try to figure out how to use some of the core blocks (Oscillator, Filter, Envelope, Mixer) and get to grips with just using those to build something simple like a basic, one oscillator synth, or a sequencer, then start to explore the other blocks as you get familiar with them.killmaster wrote: ↑Mon Dec 07, 2020 8:21 amBeen wondering the same thing and wondering if I should've gotten the regular Toybox set since they seem more understandable for me not having an easy time with modular in general.p1afff wrote: ↑Mon Dec 07, 2020 6:24 amI think that despite their fresh, simple look, and due to the split of features from one Block to multi, one must have a very clear understanding of what feature / module you need to do something. Good for learning, even it might be a bit more difficult at the beginning ? What do you think, David ?David@TOYBOX wrote: ↑Sun Dec 06, 2020 9:50 amThe Nano Pack takes a different approach, the regular Toybox packs squash a lot of features into a single block for convenience, making the individual blocks versatile. The Nano Pack has a lot more blocks (over 500) which are smaller and use less CPU, so it's more flexible. But all the packs combine well together.
If you are just starting out with Reaktor blocks I suggest to work your way though the links on the FAQ, here:
Starting at the top, this will help a lot. The 'getting started' guides use the Native Instruments 'Blocks Base' pack that comes with Reaktor, these are pretty easy to use blocks, so a good place to start out.
Then maybe take a look at the rack in the Nano Pack called "Basic Lead" -->
for an example of a simple 3 oscillator synth, this rack uses the basic blocks like the Oscillator, Filter, LFO, Envelope, Mixer etc.
It's a good example of a basic synth with all the typical elements. Just have a play around with it and try to figure out what all the connections do.
Let me know if this is helpful...
