REFRACTOR is a synthesizer for Native Instruments Reaktor, based on Karplus Strong synthesis. Instead of using noise as the impulse this synth does use sample-wavetables. Therefore the results are much more experimental, unforeseeable and multifarious. Several delay lines, a multimode filter and special tweaks make this synth unique.

Works with Native Instruments Reaktor 5.9.4 and above.

Hi there, this looks very promising.

I tried with Reaktor 5.9 and 6, it triggers but there is no sound.

Can you help me out make this work?

I use Reaper x64 on Win7 but that should not make a difference. Do I need to configure outputs somewhere?

Hello nr1killabee, .

REFRACTOR needs a note to play. It does not play notes itself. In Reaper just send some MIDI to it. It should work. Maybe you can download the latest version 1.4 from my website here: http://www.noizefield.com/products/refractor.

Please let me know if it works.

Yes it works now. It is beautiful and it sounds very good and professional. I already liked the Reaktor soundengine a lot but I am still surprised by the soundquality of some of the ensembles, sampled wavetables or not. By grabbing the 1.4 version I noticed all your other stuff on your webpage and remembered the Particle of God from a previous DC isn't it ? Anyway, there are tons of plugins to play for months...amazing...

I loaded it in Reaktor 5.9.2 and it seems to work there too, is there a reason you mentioned 5.9.4?

In my opinion, a very wise choice to develop in Reaktor for a lot of reasons. The only disadvantage for you is the voting because you need reaktor to load it and many will not be able to test it. Anyway I'm off and Refractoring now :)
