Reaktor 6 Subharmonic Synthesizer (Building a Moog Subharmonicon Knockoff) | Simon Hutchinson

video upload by Simon Hutchinson

"Building a subharmonic synthesizer in Native Instruments' Reaktor 6 Primary inspired by instruments like the Mixtur-Trautonium and Moog Subharmonicon.

Subharmonics are frequencies that are whole-number divisions of a given frequency (in contrast to harmonics, which are whole number multiples of a frequency). While harmonics naturally occur as part of the timbre of a sound, subharmonics, when introduced, sound like distinct pitches, allowing you to create chords of harmonically-related notes.

This tutorial walks you through making a set of subharmonic oscillators and envelope filter like the ones on the Moog Subharmonicon
