These 2 Reaktor Synth Blocks, Talkbox and Kicker Are FREE

If you're partial to a bit of fat Acid-Talk and singing Kicks then the latest Reaktor Blocks from Flintpope are going to be right up your street. Plus you can donate or get them for free.  

Anyone that knows Flintpope's soundsets knows they're a bargain and a half. Many of them can be downloaded for free and the rest are just great value for money. Whether you're into Ableton racks, Reaktor Blocks, presets or patches or samples, you'll find something of value there.

But anyway, today Flintpope have released two new Monark-based Blocks for Reaktor users. With all the info and a demo here's the info straight from Flintpope:

Two Monark-based Reaktorblocks making use of those fat generators and filters for an old-fashioned ACIDIC feeling.

TALKBOX uses two LFOs coupled with Infinite Phi’s cascade filter to get that “talking” effect in twelve different presets ranging from quiet voice-like to grungey bass-patterned not-at-all voice-like. There are a few more variations in there but I’ve left it for you to find them!

KICKER is a similar set-up substituting Niji’s KICK for the cascade filter. WHY? Well, I have always found the kick drum the most boring of instruments so I’ve enabled an acid house style tweakage via those oscillators, filters and LFOs that gives you instant tunes and riffs across the keyboard. Give it a go: kick drum programming with a sense of fun.

OK, I stopped at only four presets because, well… it’s still just a kick drum, but there are many more waiting to be discovered!
