The MASCHINE 2 Drum Synths allow users to adjust drum sounds on the fly, further tailoring the sound or adding a dynamic performance element to their music. The sounds were designed and tweaked by producers currently working on major label projects. Their expertise gives the drums in MAGNATE HUSTLE the larger-than-life sound of platinum-selling records heard in the charts worldwide.
A condensed version of MAGNATE HUSTLE is also available as an iMASCHINE Expansion, for creating beats on-the-go. The iMASCHINE Expansion features three projects, four drum kits, and three instruments. Tracks can be exported to MASCHINE STUDIO, MASCHINE, and MASCHINE MIKRO for completion.
