Native Instruments Happy Holiday – Free Replika delay, Traktor DJ remix sets & e-voucer

Related: , , , , , Posted in news, promo on Dec 19, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Native Instruments has announced a limited-time holiday giveaway as a thank you to all its users.

Native Instruments Happy Holidays
The giveaway includes the REPLIKA delay effect, ten free TRAKTOR Remix Sets, and a 25 USD/EUR e-voucher.

REPLIKA is a simple to use delay effect for a wide range of spatial sounds. Three effect modes – two delays and a powerful diffusion algorithm – are built into a streamlined and easy-to-use interface. The ‘Modern’ mode is a digital delay that delivers the crystal-clear repeats of contemporary delay devices. ‘Vintage Digital’ mode reproduces the charismatic grit of early studio delays. The ‘Diffusion’ mode delivers a fresh sound that rides the line between delay and reverb. REPLIKA also integrates a high-class resonant filter and classic phaser. Adding modulation is easy with simple combinations of three intuitive knobs and two buttons to choose between phaser and filter – lowpass, highpass or notch.

DJs benefit from ten free TRAKTOR Remix Sets selected from the year’s most sought after Remix Set releases. The selection includes Pezzner, Tom Trago, Wellenrausch, My Digital Enemy, and more. TRAKTOR Remix Sets are premium-grade loop and one-shot sample packs, configured for use in the Remix Decks in NI’s flagship TRAKTOR PRO 2 DJ software. Using Remix Decks, DJs can explore new expressive possibilities and live remixing. All ten TRAKTOR Remix Sets are available together or separately as a free download.

As an added bonus, everyone is encouraged to participate in a prize draw for the chance to win one of Native Instruments flagship products – a KOMPLETE KONTROL S49 with KOMPLETE 10 ULTIMATE, a TRAKTOR KONTROL S8, or a MASCHINE STUDIO. Until December 31, anyone can enter to win one of these prizes at www.native-instruments.com/happyholidays2014. Three winners will be announced after contest closure – one for each prize.

The free gifts are available from the NI website until December 31, 2014. From January 2014, REPLIKA will cost $49/49 EUR/£44 GBP. The e-voucher expires on December 31, 2014.

zplane updates Vielklang Instant Harmony to v2.2.0

zplane.development has released version 2.2.0 of Vielklang, adding AAX support to the versatile vocal editing tool and harmony generator for Windows and Mac.

zplane vielklang Instant Harmony

vielklang Instant Harmony generates harmonies with 2-4 voices. It is packed with musical intelligence and music theory: it detects the best fitting harmonies for each individual input melody, and automatically synthesizes up to four voices with the voices not merely running in parallel but with their voicings selected to sound most natural (voice leading).

Changes in Vielklang v2.2.0

  • Added: AAX support.
  • Fixed: occasional crash when two files were superposed in the arranger.
  • Fixed: second digit of the bar counter was overwritten by the cursor on playback.
  • Fixed: sometimes drop-outs when exporting audio.
  • Fixed: the warn sound of the operating system was triggered, when hitting the space-bar and vielklang had the focus.
  • Fixed: multiple warnings upon reload of a project with mismatching sample rates. Now you will be informed only once.
  • Fixed: multiple file relocation dialogs when a file in a project was deleted or moved. Now you will only be asked once.
  • Fixed: potential crash upon relocating to a different file.
  • Fixed: potential mismatch between intelligent harmonizer ‘accordion’ display and actual harmonizer settings.
  • Fixed: potential crash when deleting a note in the HybridView.

Vielklang for Windows and Mac is available for purchase for $149 USD/100 EUR ex VAT. The upgrade is free of charge for all registered users.
