Reaktion Sound Releases VOKALOID for NI Reaktor

Made for REAKTOR 6, this new instrument recreates the typical formant filter sounds but with a new and modern twist. Vokaloid can be used to process external audio, or it can use its own synth engine.  

May 06, 2016 - Reaktion Sound introduces VOKALOID - a new REAKTOR 6 Instrument acting as effect processor for audio sources. 

VOKALOID is basically a Formant Filter - a special kind of filter with fixed frequencies in the spectrum (formants) that simulate the sound of vowels of the human vocal tract. 

VOKALOID can be applied to external audio sources as an effect or can be used with its internal synth engine.

  • Two different vocal timbres (select from Bass, Tenor, Alto and Soprano) to crossfade between Two different voice modes: “HUMAN” and “ROBOT”
  • AGE and DEPTH controls to shape the sound
  • Forman Filter can be applied to an external audio or to the internal synth voice
  • Synth voice’s envelope triggered by MIDI gate or gate signal extracted from audio
  • Different modulation sources (LFO, Envelope Follower, Step-Sequencer, MIDI messages)
  • MATRIX section to managing all the modulation routing
