Native Instruments Maschine Expansion Packs
Native Instruments has introduced its new series of MASCHINE Expansions, download libraries for its groove production system.
All expansions provide new drum kits and instruments as well as pre-programmed patterns created by sound designers and producers, and feature a take on a contemporary sound aesthetic or musical style, according to the company. The series debuts with VINTAGE HEAT and TRANSISTOR PUNCH, created by Goldbaby and Surround SFX.
VINTAGE HEAT was created by sampling artist Goldbaby, and specializes on "warm, saturated sounds with typical vintage grit." The library includes 50 kits with analog, digital and acoustic origins, complemented through 50 matching synthesizer sounds ranging from bass and leads to brass, pads and strings. All sounds in VINTAGE HEAT have been sampled from vintage drum machines and analog synths, and have been processed with Goldbaby's compressors, effect units and valve tape machines. Sampling techniques including the mapping of successive tape delay repeats to different velocity layers are designed to further contribute to the character of the VINTAGE HEAT library.
TRANSISTOR PUNCH takes its inspiration from contemporary European club music, and provides sounds for a range of electronic styles. Created by sound designer Denis Gögdak of Surround SFX, the library contains 30 drum kits as well as 50 new bass and lead sounds that integrate with the factory library of MASCHINE. All sounds have been sampled from analog drum machines and synthesizers as well. TRANSISTOR PUNCH also adds 20 multi-effect chains, as well as a collection of patterns by producer Martin Buttrich.
