    Very very different programs. Reaktor does have sampling afcilities but its much more a sound wrangling tool. It takes a wave file and uses it like an oscillator. You wouldnt be able just to load up a few samples, layer them and play them over a keyboard. You do crazy stuff with them, granulate them, filter and twist, apply lfo\'s and envelopes, all weird and wonderful.
    Download the demo and have a go.

    Very different programs, everyone should have both!

    You can layer and play your samples across the keys with Reaktor, albiet very limited. The things you can do with Reaktor is just overwhelming (a good thing).

    With Reaktor: I spend lots of time designing synths/samplers and creating F&#ked up sounds, as well as emulated. Reaktor is by far my favorite synth. I rarely even play my Alesis.

    With GS: I spend lots of time composing, and using sounds that are already created (Akai formated disks, etc). That doesn\'t mean thats the only thing that can be done, but thats how I use it. GS is my 2nd favorite synth, I am able to use my immense collection of AKAI disks, and have sold my hardware sampler.
