3 out of 10??????? Thin?????? Seems to me that you listen to Reaktor on crappy computer-speakers or sumthin. But I agree on the interface, it isn't that good.

Almost perfect...but still an emulator. But I don't agree that it can emulate Minimoog well. But that may depend what kind of ear you got. Not even the best emulator can sound like the real thing! Let's all admit that once for all. Reaktor is a well designed piece of software, but I don't understand why the UI for patching modules still looks like it did in the very first version (it was called Generator). I think that NI should finally realise that modular patching should look like....well...like sitting if front of many modules and patching them with cables...sort of like Nord Modular editor does it. Hopefully version 4 will have that.

I think reaktors the best softsynth ever. with its almost accurate emulation of the juno60. I sold mine cos of tat. almost accurate cos the arp isnt so accurate though. anyway other synths that is almost perfectly emulated is the prophet5, minimoog, ms20, odessey, and etc. I really love my reaktor.

i'll have to disagree with the previous post: REAKTOR is capable of a wide range of great sounds, and encourages experimentation to the max (obviously). and the new modules (xy , event , graincloud, etc.) provide hours of fun for yr whole family. get it now....

No doubt it's a sophistacated sound generator, but it just can't match the real analog synths, like Matrix 12 or MiniMoog. Somehow, all these software emulators sounds so thin and unnatural. Sonically, I just wouldn't put it on my tracks, sorry NI!
