Native Instruments has launched Magnate Hustle, a new Maschine expansion pack tailored to the multi-faceted sound of today’s urban pop styles.

Native Instruments Magnate Hustle
MAGNATE HUSTLE features an exclusive set of guitar licks and chords, synths, and drum sounds plus new presets for MASSIVE and the MASCHINE 2 Drum Synths.

MAGNATE HUSTLE provides producers of urban pop, R&B, and hip hop with a wealth of melodic material. An exclusive selection of guitar licks and chords allows beat makers to drop melodic and harmonic elements directly into their tracks. Licks can be used as they are or be chopped up within the MASCHINE environment for adding a personalized touch to projects. A set of multi-sampled instruments including basses, acoustic and electric pianos, and synths, plus vocal hits and one-shots provide additional melodic possibilities and texture. And a set of new MASSIVE presets designed specifically for contemporary urban pop offer producers near-limitless sonic variation for their tracks.

MAGNATE HUSTLE’s selection of drum sounds includes a versatile set of samples processed for maximum punch plus four kits consisting of all-new presets for the MASCHINE 2 Drum Synths. 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.

Magnate Hustle for Maschine 2 is available for purchase for $49 USD/49 EUR/£44 GBP. The iMaschine expansion is available at the in-app store for $0.99 USD/0.89 EUR/£0.69 GBP.

Native Instruments releases Circuit Halo for Maschine

Native Instruments has announced the release of Circuit Halo, a new Maschine expansion library that combines intricately-sampled vintage synths and drum machines with contemporary patterns.

Native Instruments Circuit Halo
CIRCUIT HALO’s sound set combines multi-sampled synths, classic drum machines, custom glitch modulation effects, and new presets for the included MASSIVE and REAKTOR PRISM synths.

CIRCUIT HALO features a premium collection of samples from vintage synthesizers such as the Roland Juno 60, Casio VL-Tone, Prophet 5, Yamaha DX7, Sequential Circuits Pro One and Six-Trak, and a Korg MS-20. Each instrument was meticulously multi-sampled to capture the characteristic warm low end and idiosyncrasies such as pitch drift that analog equipment adds to productions. The combination of vintage sound with the latest in glitch modulation effects and arrangement styles gives producers a new way to blend classic sounds with production techniques.

The drum sounds in CIRCUIT HALO come from a mix of vintage and modern drum machines – many customized for a unique sound. Boutique outboard gear such as a classic 80s British talkback compressor and 1/2″ analog tape were used for detailed tone shaping and a good dose of warmth and character. Lush reverb reminiscent of the 80s sound was also used to add depth and vintage flavor to the expansion.

CIRCUIT HALO’s four Special Kits contain a wealth of glitched-out, grainy sounds, noises and sweeps, sound effects, and percussion and stabs. All-new PRISM presets provide organic leads, pads, mallets, and flutes while MASSIVE presets deliver textured, morphing leads, basses, and stabs.

A condensed version of CIRCUIT HALO is also available as an iMASCHINE Expansion for creating beats on-the-go. The iMASCHINE Expansion features two projects, four drum kits, and two multi-sampled instruments. Tracks can be exported to MASCHINE STUDIO, MASCHINE, and MASCHINE MIKRO for completion.

CIRCUIT HALO was created in cooperation with Danish sound design expert Joël Krozer of 6 Bit Deep.

Circuit Halo is available for purchase for $49 USD / 49 EUR / £44 GBP. Requires Maschine 2. The iMASCHINE expansion is available at the iMASCHINE in-app store for $0.99 USD / 0.89 EUR / £0.69 GBP.

ModeAudio has released Curved Horizon, a collection of vintage for the FM8 synthesizer instrument from Native Instruments.

ModeAudio Curved Horizon

This release packs in 50 gorgeously unstable presets, from deep basses, atmospheric pads, classic, characterful synths, floating leads and much more. We’ve turned the hard-edged, metallic quality of FM synthesis on its head to bring you a synth preset collection that fuzzes, crackles, flickers and phase shifts from the moment you press down one of those keys.

Taking inspiration from such varied sources as cinema soundtracks, psychedelic ambience and classic chill-out, watch the horizon stretch and twist towards you with Curved Horizon – FM8 Vintage Presets!

Curved Horizon features

  • 50 .nfm8 presets (basses, pads, classic synths, chords, leads & plucks).
  • 50 MIDI loops.
