    Yep, some things have changed for the better, but most of the R5 stuff is still applicable to R6. Anything built in R5 will work in R6.

    Sometimes you might find that there is some factory macro being used that doesn't exist any more, but you can just ask in the forum, or just work out a replacement for yourself.

    Best thing to do is work through the manuals, there are some tutorial sections. R5 manuals are V good as well. I would do that before looking at old videos.

    When I started out, I read the manuals through a couple of times and just got stuck in. Didn't watch any vids at that time.

    Vids are good, but Manuals are the foundation!

    After the manuals, yeah, some vids, but posting questions, and getting into discussions here works well. And also general audio related DSP academic papers (not easy for sure ;)).

    You can learn how Reaktor works from the Manuals, and you can learn how audio DSP works from academia and from general audio programming resources! If you do it that way, you can even make stuff that other Reaktorists aren't already making ;)

    One vid I did enjoy was David's (@bolabo), he did one where he streamed himself building a Block, and I learned some excellent time saving workflow tips from that. I don't think that vid is up anywhere though - I tried to find it but...?
