ADSR Sounds has launched Liquid House, a collection of sounds sampled from some of the world’s finest analog drum machines intended for house producers and DJs.
Each kit contains a dry and a distorted, compressed version of 8 sounds: two kicks, two snares, two hat sounds, a bass sound, and a lead sound. the dry sounds are prime to be manipulated and mangled for all kinds of house and other EDM productions, while the distorted sounds are ready for live use in the club, warehouse, or any late-night party. Using pairs of kits on each of Maschine’s groups this way allows producers to evenly fade – or suddenly cut – between dry and heavily distorted versions of the sounds.
This isn’t an average collection of sounds for average EDM artists – Liquid House is a collection of the authentic sounds of analog synthesis that looks to the future and to favorite studio and performance gear of years (and house DJ sets) past and present.
Liquid House features
- Includes 9 Maschine groups, 144 sounds, 150+ samples, and one big demo project with all of the kits and sounds pre-loaded.
- All samples recorded straight from analog drum machines using high-quality outboard gear and next-generation audio-to-digital converters.
- Takes advantage of Maschine’s sampler’s MP60 mode, an emulation of a much-beloved vintage sampler that perfectly complements to sounds of raw, analog drum sounds.
The sample pack is available to purchase for $19 USD.

Native Instruments has announced the release of Marble Rims, a new Maschine expansion pack offering producers the laid-back, sun-kissed flavor of classic and contemporary SoCal hip hop.
Adding to the scope of included kits and sounds, MARBLE RIMS delivers exclusive recordings from renowned West Coast artists and producers.
Producers can choose from a palette of 40 lovingly-sampled instruments ranging from SoCal staples such as analog basses and leads, soulful electric pianos, and layered percussion, to live sampled guitar licks, one-shots and beat sequences. Benchmark keyboard instruments and synths such as the Fender Rhodes Mark 1, Hammond B3 Organ, a Minimoog Model D, and more were all carefully sampled then equalized using vintage EQs.
Exclusive to MARBLE RIMS are a collection of samples taken from live sessions with some of the most iconic producers and musicians of the urban West Coast. Guitar licks and one-shots featuring Marlon Williams of Warren G fame were recorded using custom and vintage equipment.
Highlighting some of the unique equipment Marlon used was a 1978 Gibson Les Paul custom and a 1978 vintage Fender Stratocaster. Six urban kits and drum samples by rhythm virtuoso Dae One deliver classic West Coast beats along with samples designed by Hallway Productionz, and Amplified.
Adding to the Expansion’s bold character are four special kits containing MIDI sequences by legendary keyboardist Kenneth Crouch.
