Native Instruments has a nice Christmas gift for its fans: Skanner. This synthesizer was designed by Stephan Schmitt, the creator of Reaktor. Skanner works with Reaktor and Reaktor Player, version 5.6.2.
The sound it produces with the supplied samples is raw. Users of the full version of Reaktor can load their own samples in Skanner. The synthesizer is now temporarily available for free via the website of Native Instruments.
