Developing Blocks in Reaktor involves particularly dense convergence of many different disciplines. Throughout the series, we will cover many different topics and develop a variety of complete Blocks - a range of generators, effects, sequencers and more. To accomplish this feat, we'll employ a number of tools both within and external to Reaktor - ie Knobman, Sketch (for Design/Graphics, similar to Illustrator/Photoshop) and more. My aim is to establish an understanding of the intricacies of the Blocks Framework and demonstrate a variety of ways in which you can realize your future creations!
Not only that - weâ€™ll be working in such a way as to build, in addition to our blocks, a library of our own macros, templates and other tools to facilitate future prototyping and Reaktor development. In the context of this series, weâ€™ll be treating this library as an extension of the Native instruments Template, but the scope of these macros and tools will reach far beyond the Blocks Framework - most are useful for development within any project.
