Today, Native Instruments released an very important free update for Reaktor 6. With this update, users can connect Eurorack Modular and other Hardware to the Reaktor environment. So you can sent CV and MIDI messages from Reaktor 6 to your hardware. For using this technology, you need a special hardware audio interface or something like the Shuttle Control Eurorack module.

The REAKTOR Blocks 1.2 update introduces new CV and MIDI connectivity. Calibrate pitch signals for accurate use with external hardware oscillators, use Blocks to convert any signal into gates and triggers, and send pitch, gate, and modulation signals from a Blocks patch to REAKTOR’s MIDI out.
Additional to this release, Native Instruments also released some very cool new Reaktor 6 modules for the better connectivity to your hardware and also new sound modules. On the connectivity side, you receive now a Maschine Sequencer Module, so you can use Maschine as hardware sequencer for your hardware stuff but you need Reaktor 6 for using this new feature. On the sound module, NI released also some new drum modules for creating drum synthesis inside Reaktor 6. 


The MASCHINE Sequencer Block is an eight-channel trigger sequencer designed to control Blocks patches directly from your MASCHINE MK2 controller. 

The sequencer also features a Euclidean pattern generator – the perfect way to get a jolt of inspiration. This new device and many more are available free in the NI User Library. 


Niji Drums Blocks are eight drum voices that recreate the sound of a legendary drum machine. 

Use them with the MASCHINE sequencer for Blocks to create your own custom drum machine – the perfect marriage of the freedom of patching and hands-on hardware control.
