Native Instruments launches High-Octane Holidays Giveaway

Native Instruments High-Octane Giveaway

Native Instruments has announced a holiday giveaway as a thank you to all users. Until December 31, two special gifts are available for download from the Native Instruments website.

Producers get SUPERCHARGER – a versatile compressor effect delivering warm, colorful, tube-style compression, modeled from a one-of-a-kind hardware unit.

NI’s DJ community gets four new Remix Sets for TRAKTOR’s Remix Decks based on some of the latest MASCHINE Expansions.

Native Instruments are also giving away a $25 / 25 € / ¥ 2,500 e-voucher for the NI Online Shop.

SUPERCHARGER delivers warm, responsive tube compression. The effect is particularly simple to use, with just a few clearly laid-out controls providing a wide range of sounds from subtle warmth to complete devastation. The input knob and convenient visual display allow producers to set exactly the right input level to drive the compressor.

Native Instruments Supercharger

Once the input level is set, producers can quickly dial in a wide range of compression effects using a single ‘Compress’ knob. The Compress knob is a macro knob, automatically adjusting multiple parameters including make-up gain, the responsiveness of the release control, and the degree of saturation. This means that each position of the dial provides an ideal setting. Punch and Dirt buttons deliver added impact and saturation. SUPERCHARGER complements the existing range of KOMPLETE studio effects with harmonically-rich tube sound, and is optimized for use in MASCHINE.

NI Traktor Remix Sets

Four new TRAKTOR Remix Sets provide essential loops and samples from the MASCHINE Expansions ELECTRIC VICE, PULSWERK, LAZER DICE, and STATIC FRICTION. 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 four TRAKTOR Remix Sets are available together as a free download.

These special offers are available for free from the NI website. From January 2014, Supercharger will cost $49 USD / 49 EUR. The e-voucher expires on December 31, 2013.

Klanghelm DC1A 2

Klanghelm Audio Plugins has released version 2 of the free compressor plug-in DC1A, and version 2.1 of DC8C, the advanced compressor effect plugin.

I’ve just updated the popular free compressor DC1A to the compression engine of its big brother DC8C 2.

DC1A 2 offers a few more tricks than its predecessor, such as compression with negative ratios and dual mono operation. Since the sound has changed, DC1A 2 has a new plugin id, so that you’re able to use V1 alongside with V2 in your projects.

DC8C has been updated too.

Changes in DC1A 2 / DC8C v2.1

  • New GUI(s), dedicated GUIs for each easy mode too.
  • New metering, much more detailed and accurate.
  • New dual mono switch for the easy modes.
  • Mac RTAS is now officially supported.
  • Less CPU consumption.
  • Removed DC offset from saturation.
  • Overall better handling of extreme settings.
  • With no oversampling selected DC8C is zero latency now.

DC1A is available to download as freeware, DC8C costs 20 EUR. The update is free for current users.
