Very basic modular synth made in Reaktor

YouTube via nukebass.
"A very basic DIY tutorial to beginners (like me) showing how to build a basic modular synthesizer in FIVE MINUTES inside Reaktor 5.1. Actually, I made this video to test Camtasia Recorder, a cool software to make videos like this, capturing your desktop activity.

Reaktor itself, comes with a large variety of tools to make modular audio stuff... powerful software indeed! You can build virtually ANYTHING you would imagine regarding audio effects or instruments! Wish I would have plenty of patience and time to dive more deeper into it. Worth your every effort!"

I don't know if these tools are working on OS X Leo or Vista. So I'm sticking with my good ol' G5 Powermac to keep them running on Tiger."
