I don't find this to be the significant limitation that you do and, for me, the tradeoff is well worth it for the control that you get with Reaktor.Echoes in the Attic wrote: ↑Sun Dec 04, 2022 8:12 amReaktor and Komplete Kontrol keyboards are the same in that respet. 8 knobs, no buttons. Good for a few macro controls. Crap for full control of a synth like Monark or Super 8.ghettosynth wrote: ↑Sat Dec 03, 2022 11:26 amThat's why Maschine is where it's at for controlling Reaktor. For me, the best stuff to come out of NI has been done in Reaktor.SebAV wrote: ↑Sat Dec 03, 2022 6:01 amSL user too, and Ableton Live. Reaktor & Reason have the same « shell issue » in that there is a layer, a « container » that hides the specific « module » inside them from the DAW and the controller so you can’t benefit from (far from perfect) kind of « hardware feeling » the DAW/Controller duet try to offer to you.Echoes in the Attic wrote: ↑Fri Dec 02, 2022 3:42 pm Going back to Reaktor means no more working smoothly on touch screens and very little chance of resizing coming, since even the last kontakt update didn’t address that. I doubt Reaktor will. Whereas I thought maybe super 8 might get resizing. Also presets are more annoying for sure, and as an Novation SL user Reaktor isn’t good as you only same mappings per plugin.
That’s why I try to stick to « autonomous » VSTs
I guess what it comes down to is that I, perhaps selfishly, want NI to stop doing what they're not good at, and keep doing what they are good at. I'm totally fine with their effects being a part of guitar rig, their sample libraries being a part of Kontakt, and everything else, including effects and synths, being a part of Reaktor.
In fact, nothing would make me happier than to see them blend Reaktor and Kontakt into one uber-platform product. Then they can sell "expansion packs" to the masses all day long while they focus on revamping the U/I development tools for both of them.
