Very precise and consistent

This is really easy to follow, yet it reveals some nuggets how you can use the modules in different ways. Sami knows which knobs to turn and some nice sounds are in there too.

Perfect Mix

I really liked this series, because it combines the theoretical information about all of the Blocks with their practical application. I think this series will be hard to follow though if you really do not know anything about oscillators, envelopes, etc. However, I am a beginner and still managed to follow most of it so if you are interested than I would really recommend to watch it.

Great Tutorial :)

Excellent explanation about the different blocks. I wished that it is longer because I had the feeling in the end like the author has run out of time. Please Groove3 don't put restrictions on time.

Reaktor 6 for experienced Reaktor users

This is the best Reaktor 6 tutorial I have seen, bar none, if you love Reaktor and just want to get the handle on the rather sweeping changes in 6, focusing on Blocks Wired. I STRONGLY recommend watching this series at least once.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Another good series A good look at all the Reaktor 6 block modules. Not only does he explain the modules but also gives some suggestions for practical use. Before watching the video I was a bit confused on the west coast modules. This helped me be less confused.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Only on the 3rd video and already tons of value I have quite a bit of experience with traditional preset synth/sampler sound design, but the world of modular is pretty new for me. I picked up Reaktor 6 to use Blocks as a learning tool before diving into hardware, and this video series has been instrumental in teaching me not only how this stuff works, but how to THINK about it so that I can conduct my own experiments with confidence in the future. Great presentation style, moves along at a nice clip without being hurried. Great stuff!
