Today, Native Instruments released Reaktor 6, the latest version of its acclaimed modular music software.

Native Instruments reports that Reaktor 6 was built from the ground up, updating its user interface for its most approachable version yet. Arguably the biggest and most interesting new feature is Blocks, a new framework that provides “the speed and flexibility of modular synth patching combined with the benefits of working in the digital domain.” REAKTOR 6 comes bundled with 30 Blocks in several categories, which include Bento Box Blocks, which are “the core components of a modular synth setup”; Boutique Blocks, which takes inspiration from custom modular hardware; Digilog Blocks, which “create complex rhythms, process notes, and provide structure in patches”; and NI All-Star Blocks, which incorporate Native Instruments synths such as ROUNDS and MONARK.

Reaktor 6 is available now via Native Instruments for $199, or $99 for an upgrade.
