The OP-X reaktor has attracted the attention of many sound fetishists all around the globe.
It's being used in countless top ten productions and film scores. This thing simply rocks!
The secret of organic sound
Tuning options >>
The killer feature of this ensemble is the separate treatment of each of the six
voices with slight differences in sound as it is in the real world. The oscillators,
filters cutoffs and envelope times differ slightly from voice to voice (no random function)
and can be tuned individually with three global buttons.
„To me the OPX sounds absolutely fantastic.
With an extensive collection of hardware synths and all the soft synths available in my possession, I could not anticipate how much joy I would get from the OPX. It outperforms most of my other softsynths in sound and ease of use, and most important, pleasure and inspiration.
I expect something from "analog" that the OPX delivers and the others don´t.
It even gives new life to Reaktor, which I somehow had left untouched for quite a while.
OPX presets are, in addition to great starting points for new sounds, an almost complete collection of the sounds that got me into synths in the first place.
The downside to all the goodness, is that the myth that you get what you pay for in terms of price/quality is demolished.
In this case the best sounding and most fun instrument is by far the least expensive."
„I have been using Oberheim OB synthesizers for over 30 years. OP-X, has the sound, programmability, and additional features, that I can now retire the hardware instruments.
It has fit the bill so well, that I am using it in my present film score.
Thank you for adding a long awaited software synth."
