Native Instruments releases MASCHINE 2.2 Software Update

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Nov 25, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Native Instruments has released version 2.2 of Maschine, a major update of the acclaimed integrated hardware/software groove production system.

Native Instruments Maschine
New features include Smart Play™, adding new melodic capabilities, unified sound browsing, full KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series keyboard integration, Light Guide™ synchronization, and more to the MASCHINE workflow.

The MASCHINE 2.2 update adds a powerful new melodic dimension to the MASCHINE workflow. The Smart Play™ features include a new scale and chord engine, as well as a fully-functional arpeggiator. Producers can select from a range of popular musical scales and chords, and perform them into their productions directly on MASCHINE’s 16 high-sensitivity pads. The arpeggiator allows precise control of direction, octave span, and subdivision – its output is also recorded directly into MASCHINE’s Pattern Editor, providing easy post-performance editing of the note sequences. The update also unlocks MASCHINE STUDIO’s touch-sensitive knobs for an even faster, touch-and-see workflow.

MASCHINE 2.2 also brings full KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series integration to MASCHINE. Producers can browse instruments and effects in the MASCHINE software directly from an S-Series keyboard. Once an instrument or effect is loaded key parameters automatically map to the display knobs on both pieces of hardware. The luxurious Fatar keybeds add a new level of fluid expression. Light Guide™ also synchronizes perfectly with MASCHINE’s pads, giving producers the same level of feedback on both pieces of hardware when switching from beats to melodic playing.

The update is free for all current Maschine 2 owners. Maschine users who have not yet updated to the Maschine 2 software can purchase the upgrade for $49.50 USD/49.50 EUR/£44.50 GBP until December 12th, 2014.

Toonrack releases Metal Machine SDX for Superior Drummer 2

Toontrack Metal Machine SDX

Toontrack has announced the release of Metal Machine SDX, a Superior Drummer 2 sound library featuring the original recording that was used as the foundation for the Metal Machine EZX, arguably the most popular set of metal drum sounds on the market.

What makes it different from the EZX version is that the SDX sounds are raw and without post-processing, meaning the source material recorded directly at the studio. It comes with fundamentally the same collection of instruments but includes a wider variety of mic selections as well as a custom bank of kit presets.

The sessions were conducted at Studio B of Los Angeles’ Henson Recording Studios. Formerly known as the A&M Studios, these landmark facilities have housed the who’s-who of the recording industry of the past few decades. Heavy acts like Metallica, Soundgarden, Kiss, Pearl Jam and many others have all mixed or recorded groundbreaking works here.

At the helm recording, a man that needs no introduction to the world of metal; Andy Sneap. Having produced and mixed defining albums by some of modern metal’s most priced acts like Testament, Megadeth, Accept and Killswitch Engage, Sneap has had an instrumental role in shaping the sound of metal as we know it in the new millennium.

This library comprises three full kits as well as a wide assortment of cymbals and snares drums, which were all recorded using the utmost in recording equipment. With its concrete-lined walls, the room at Studio B produces a hard but still deep and precise tone, making it a perfect sonic environment for big, reverberant rock and metal drums. This room really brings out the very essence and raw nature of these instruments.

Toontrack Metal Machine MIDI

This is more than a collection of drums for just rock and metal. With the powerful tools of Superior Drummer 2, it’s a clean canvas of the finest of raw material, ready for you to harness, shape and mold into something truly unique.

The Metal Machinery SDX also comes with a MIDI groove library performed by Nick Barker (ex-Cradle of Filth, ex-Dimmu Borgir). This is also available as a separate release (Metal Machinery MIDI).

Metal Machinery SDX features

  • Three kits (2 x Tama Starclassic Bubinga, Ludwig Stainless Steel) as well as a large selection of snare drums and cymbals.
  • Produced and engineered by Andy Sneap.
  • Recorded at Henson Recording Studios in Los Angeles, USA.
  • Six (6) kit presets including custom samples, designed and mixed by Andy Sneap.
  • Included MIDI played by Nick Barker (ex-Cradle of Filth, ex-Dimmu Borgir).

The Metal Machine SDX is now available for purchase for 159EUR. The Metal Machine MIDI pack is 25 EUR.
