Native Instruments Skanner XT
Native Instruments introduced SKANNER XT, a KOMPLETE instrument, designed by the team behind REAKTOR.
Part sampler, part synth, SKANNER XT utilizes a synthesizer architecture to create a variety of sounds for contemporary electronic music production and sound design. Two oscillators 'scan' a sample, which at low frequencies deliver a scratch sound. At higher frequencies the oscillators, shaped by the sample waveform, become the dominant force.
SKANNER XT offers two interface views for different levels of interaction with the architecture under the hood. Besides a simplified page with a preset morpher and four macro controls, a second view provides access to more detailed parameters. A morph control option allows for switching between eight different snapshots.
SKANNER XT runs in the free REAKTOR 5 PLAYER or the full REAKTOR 5 version, and is also optimized for browsing from the MASCHINE hardware.
Pricing & Availability:
SKANNER XT is available at the NI Online Shop for $59 / 49 EUR. Users of the previous free version SKANNER, are entitled to crossgrade to SKANNER XT for a special price of $29.50 / 24,50 EUR until May 31st.
