|There was a time, a company named Native Instruments created a great software : generator. It was first time we could build easily on computer synthesizer with box and wire, a very interesting and playful way. It was little expensive but it deserve it. Then, a programmist from Russia, made a crazy simple soft, sync modular, going even deaper in modularity, giving to user the possibility to built oscillators, filters or what ever - whereas generator was limited to already made box for that - and nearly 10 times cheaper. So Native Instruments said : "What the F***. Not possible to have a such challenger around us, he will steal our market ! We have to do something". Then, they do the good move : they bought the guy, stopped to developp sync modular, and said : "Ok, you come in our company but you won't destroy our soft. You do what you want in your own box and wire, we will call it "Kore", and we will manage to interface your stuff with our own box, called "primary". The result was a weird, complex thing, too hard to understand for average musician, but deep and working well anyway. Native instruments realize that their soft was too complex for 95% of users, abandon their idea to make great modular soft for large public and try to satisfy average musician by a new concept : Reaktor block, saying "You understand nothing of our tricky, complex soft ? don't worry ! Put already made few big block on the screen, wire them and your synthesizer is done !". So great idea.
