None of these comments are helpful. Synth-snob arguments are painfully boring and rarely based on relevant facts. Thanks.

I'm using reaktor alongside an e5000 and triton equiped with the moss(z1) board. I love Reaktor, I really do. Listen to any analogue or va synth without the effects and you've just got raw waveforms. The triton give shit hot fx, the emu gives me shit hot filters, and the moss board and reaktor provide me with an endless supply of raw waveforms.

At first, I did think it was shit (this is the ONLY softsynth I have anytime for), but after you've looked under the bonnet, and seen the power available to you, you begin to realize just how mad Reaktor is.

Truly incredible.

One seriously chuffed bunny.

What audio card are you using Jesse? And what drivers?

The ASIO drivers I use with win98se on my Hammerfall let me get down to 3ms latency. That's hardware synth territory. Very responsive. Sound Blaster live cards with the hacked APS drivers yeild a latency of around 11ms. Also very responsive.

I know that under win2k you have to find a card that has good wdm drivers if you want to avoid latency problems. So the usual suspects RME, Event, Midiman (I'm sure there are others) should be tried.

all you have to do is record what you want to play into your computer and its sample accurate, just as easy as playing midi notes from a keyboard or programming them from say cakewalk or unless you need to play reaktor live latency reall isnt a problem.

I agree it's a brilliant soft synth, but are others experiencing ridiculous latency, like a half second or so?! Is there a way around this, my computers not that old, Pentium 3 and Win2k, I don't see how it's really musically usable with that long of a delay between the on-Note and the sound.
