The REAKTOR User Library is celebrating an impressive milestone: More than 1,000 REAKTOR ensembles have been uploaded since its inception five years ago. Just as NATIVE INSTRUMENTS was about to celebrate the thousandth upload, a busy REAKTOR user uploaded yet another ensemble.
As more and more REAKTOR users around the world have been sharing their cabled creations, the User Library has quickly developed into the world's largest collection of synthesizers, effects, drum machines, samplers, and eccentric audio machines. All registered REAKTOR users can freely download and upload from the daily-growing User Library.
To mark the post-millennial occasion, NATIVE INSTRUMENTS is happy to offer a special ensemble as a free download. OKI COMPUTER is an innovative "retro computer sound emulator" that not only recreates the classic sounds of the c64-generation, but also pumps out squelchy basses and tricky rhythms.
More information and the ensemble can be found at
NATIVE INSTRUMENTS has also put an interview with NI founder and REAKTOR mastermind Stephan Schmitt online in which he talks about the history of REAKTOR, the User Library and the plans for the future.
