NI is giving out a new free synth for the holidays
It’s a Reaktor synth called Skanner, doing some funky wave scanning synthesis stuff
“SKANNER ingeniously mixes sampler and synthesizer. The two oscillators ‘scan’ a sample; at low frequencies you get the ‘scratch’ sound of the sample being read back and forth, while at higher frequencies the dominant force is the oscillators being shaped by the sample waveform. The resulting sounds are raw, dirty and highly unpredictable – from simple sine waves to walls of noise.”
Also some crazy morphing going on too
“At the heart of SKANNER’s creative potential is the versatile Preset Morpher – morph between eight different snapshots for evolving sounds that are unworldly and unusual. ”
