Jim spent some time with the Nonlinear labs C15 - an extremely playable instrument with Reaktor technology at its core. The C15 is the creation of Stephan Schmitt - one the founders of Native Instruments
"I sat down with the C15 not knowing what really to expect and what I found was an instrument that begged to played. Expressive in ways that only FM can be with a couple of assignable ribbon controllers that span the width of the instrument, and with a button for every parameter, the C15 is truly inspiring to play. I didn’t want to stop. Mostly cinematic and pad type sounds featured here though there are many keyboard, string and brass-type presets as well."
