We are super excited to announce the release of the latest Toybox pack for Reaktor Blocks: The Tangle Pack.

This one is super special. Bringing together the best bits of all our packs from the last 2 years.

There are a bunch of utility blocks in the pack specially for Maschine integration, for example the 'Drum Pad' block allows you to trigger samples and sequencers from the Maschine's pads, with Ableton style launch quantization. It's super fun!

Check it out! -->


Tangle Pack – 300 advanced Reaktor blocks for modern sound design. The Tangle Pack is a new suite of powerful blocks based on legendary Eurorack modules, with some unique blocks for advanced synthesis and sound creation.

Features include:

  • Tangle Oscillator, a powerful oscillator block that fuses extreme phase distortion (twisting, warping, repeating and mixing basic waveforms for knotted and twisted sounds) with FM synthesis, great for thick, harmonically rich timbres. The block also features 7 lo-fi modes which authentically model vintage convertors with gritty digital noise and jitter, great for dirty old-school digital synth sounds.
  • A flexible analog modelled filter with 8 different models (Moog, Korg, Roland etc). A variety of filter slopes plus notch and comb filters are available. All filter types can be flexibly re-ordered and morphed.
  • A high quality wavefolder block closely modelled on the timbre effect found in the Buchla Easel.
  • A collection of powerful modulation blocks, including the Ramp Generator block, based on one half of the Make Noise 'Maths' function generator Eurorack module, plus a flexible multi-breakpoint envelope generator and a collection of randomising blocks: chaos, brownian motion etc.
  • A curated selection of 'Nano' utility blocks, updated and revised specially for the pack.
  • A collection of high-quality and innovative effect and processing blocks based on popular Eurorack modules.
  • A flexible global snapshots system. Snapshots can be stored for each individual block or for the whole rack, then selected and morphed using the Snapshots block. 
  • Updated Nano Sequencer blocks included for building generative sequences, arpeggiators or generating complex phrases. Multiple Sequencer Segment blocks can be daisy-chained for a ratcheting style step sequencer of any length. The Conditional block works using a similar idea to the ‘conditional trigs’ found in the Elektron series of groove boxes, great for organic evolving sequences.
  • Bleeding-edge dsp and analog modelling techniques.
  • All blocks are also available as polyphonic versions as well as an extensive collection of polyphonic 'Nano' Blocks, available for the first time.

The pack can be used without any limitations in Maschine with the free Reaktor Player (no need for the full version of Reaktor).

INTRO PRICE $45.00 (normal price $64)

    Here's a quick video showing some sounds from the Tangle Oscillator and some of it's 'lo-fi' modes. Only the oscillator's 'sine' waveform shape is used here, using the phase distortion knobs (Repeat, Bend & Pulse Width) for some very 'bubbly' noises :) -->

    This is the "Alkaline Sequence" rack that is included with the Tangle Pack. It's a good demonstration of some of the raunchy clangorous tones possible with the 'Folder' block (based on the timbre effect found in the Buchla Easel).

    Here is a cheatsheet for the Tangle Oscillator included in the Tangle Pack:

    The Tangle Oscillator is capable of some pretty complex and harmonically rich sounds. It is based on a fusion of phase distortion (twisting, warping, repeating and mixing basic waveforms for knotty twisted sounds) with FM synthesis. There is a full description of the block and it's various knobs and ports here:

    Just to let you know that we are running a July 4th sale on the Toybox website. The Synth Bundle is currently on sale for just $26 (Normal price $65). The Synth Bundle is a great companion to the Tangle Pack. It extends the polyphonic capabilities of the pack with a suite of powerful self-contained polyphonic synthesisers (that use a variety of synthesis techniques: FM, virtual analog, supersaw etc).

    The Synth Bundle also includes the Piano Roll block. This block has more features than any DAW piano roll (seriously!). Groups of notes can be shifted, warped flipped, reversed, transposed, quantised and adapted to a scale, freely and in realtime using any modulation signal in your rack. Combined with the polyphonic blocks in the Tangle Pack you have infinite possibilities for sound design and sequencing!

    Checkout the Piano Roll tutorials on the Toybox YouTube channel, here:

    Just to let you folks know that today is the FINAL DAY of the Toybox July 4th sale. The Synth Bundle is currently on sale for just $26 (Normal price $65). The Synth Bundle is a great companion to the newly released Tangle Pack and also includes the amazing Piano Roll block, here's some praise for it from the internet:

    "This thing is so deep and thoughtfully designed; it continues to amaze" - DC

    "Such a great block. so flexible for basic stuff and super weird experimentations A+" - Buried InTime

    "Best Reaktor block i ever saw" - Cinebient

    "A more powerful and quick to use piano roll than in any of the 4+ DAWs I've tried" - MW

    More info on the Toybox website: https://www.toyboxaudio.com

    Below is a cheatsheet showing how you can hook up the Piano Roll block to a simple polyphonic synth using the blocks in the Tangle Pack -->

    Below is a cheatsheet for the Modulation Lane block from the Tangle Pack. Click here to see it in more detail:

    https://www.toyboxaudio.com/pages/tangle-pack-plus-piano-roll

    The Modulation Lane is a versatile block which lets you accurately draw in patterns of modulation.

    It can be used as a multi-breakpoint envelope, a custom LFO or a DAW-style automation lane for slow passages of modulation. It works at ‘audio-rate’ so you can even use it as a wave-shaper or a complex drawable oscillator.

    The tangle pack is still available at the intro price of $45. Also due to demand we are continuing the July 4th Sale until this weekend. The Synth Bundle (including the Piano Roll block) is still available at just $26 for the whole bundle (normal price $65). More info here: https://www.toyboxaudio.com

    Hey Folks, we have just released a new semi-modular soft synth based on our Reaktor blocks — Tangle Synth

    The synth is NKS compatible, works great with Maschine and KK! :)

    The synth is built using the cream of the Toybox blocks collection with a patching strip down the middle for quickly making modulation connections.

    Although the front panel is conveniently laid out like a standard mono-synth, there are unlimited patching and routing options available from the structure view. In the structure view you can even add blocks from other packs, like Native Instruments own high quality Monark filter.

    The Tangle Synth comes with over 100 patches included, all with full NKS mappings.

    Features include:

    Powerful oscillators take cues from contemporary Eurorack modules, including the Tangle Oscillator: a versatile oscillator block that fuses extreme phase distortion (twisting, warping, repeating and mixing basic waveforms for knotted and twisted sounds) with FM synthesis, great for thick, harmonically rich timbres. The oscillator block also features seven lo-fi modes which authentically model vintage digital convertors with gritty noise and jitter, great for old-school digital synth tones.

    Flexible analog modelled filter with a pre or post filter distortion circuit and ILO (infinite linear oversampling) wave-folding. 8 different analog filter models (Moog, Korg, Roland etc) can be selected and multiple filter shapes and styles can be flexibly re-ordered and morphed between.

    • Four High-quality and innovative effects blocks.

    Powerful modulation blocks, including the Ramp Generator block (based on one half of the Make Noise 'Maths' function generator Eurorack module), three multi-breakpoint modulation lanes, 2 complex LFOs plus randomization and utility blocks.

    A set of templates included based on common synths (like Roland SH101) for quickly dialling up basic sounds.

    A flexible global snapshots system. Snapshots can be stored and morphed for each individual block or for the whole rack.

    Bleeding-edge DSP and analog modelling techniques.

    Works with Reaktor Player (no need for a full copy of Reaktor)

    The pack is available at the intro price of only $24 (normally $45).

    Hi Folks, we are super excited to release the Atomic Pack, our latest Reaktor Blocks pack!

    This one is really special, the main oscillator in the pack uses a novel approach combining additive and FM synthesis for really amazing and unique timbres. You can modulate and apply FM to each individual partial (harmonic) of the oscillator's 2 additive engines and there are also really flexible resynthesis options if you connect an external signal.

    Atomic Pack

    A revolutionary new modular synthesis playground

    The pack is a collection of 50 ground breaking and innovative new modules for Reaktor Blocks that are sophisticated and versatile enough to create any sound you could imagine.

    The pack is based on two powerful new oscillators, the Atomic Oscillator is an additive FM oscillator that breaks sound into its component parts and provides a multitude of controls to reconstruct the sound at the 'sub-atomic' level! Deep cross modulation options between the oscillator's 2 additive engines result in interesting and unique sounds and timbres. The pack also includes a versatile wavetable oscillator with controls to warp and twist the waveform's harmonics. A powerful morphing filter and a suite of effects can be used to further sculpt the sound.

    Features include:

    • Modular design makes quickly sketching sound design ideas quick and easy
    • Simple to use front panel patching for easily routing modulation sources, plus unlimited sound design possibilities available from the 'structure' view!
    • 30 presets included by Itoa and Cinningbao
    • Powerful oscillators including the Atomic Oscillator: a versatile oscillator block that fuses extreme additive synthesis with FM synthesis, great for thick, harmonically rich timbres. The wavetable oscillator block also features lo-fi modes which authentically model vintage digital convertors with gritty noise and jitter, great for old-school digital synth tones
    • Flexible analog modelled filter with a pre or post filter distortion circuit and ILO (infinite linear oversampling) wave-folding. 8 different analog filter models (Moog, Korg, Roland etc) can be selected and multiple filter shapes and styles can be flexibly re-ordered and morphed between
    • Eight high-quality and innovative effect and processing blocks
    • Powerful modulation blocks, including a multi-breakpoint envelope, complex LFOs plus randomization and utility blocks
    • Change panel colours to organize and quickly identify sections within a rack.
    • A flexible snapshots system. Individual snapshots can be stored and morphed between for each of the oscillator blocks
    • State of the art dsp and analog modelling techniques

    Intro price $45 (regular price $64)
