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.

Native Instruments releases free Replika delay effect plugin

Related: , , , , , , , Posted in news on Dec 18, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Native Instruments has launched Replika, a free delay effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Native Instruments Replika

REPLIKA packs two professional quality delays and a powerful diffusion algorithm into a sleek, streamlined interface. Simple to use with a resonant filter and classic phaser built in, REPLIKA is a versatile delay for anything from subtle slapback to warped sheets of noise.

REPLIKA provides three distinct algorithms. Modern is a digital delay that delivers the crystal-clear repeats of high-end units. Vintage Digital delivers the charismatic grit of early studio delays. Diffusion delivers a fresh sound that rides the line between delay and reverb.

A high-class resonant filter and classic phaser add subtle to drastic motion that can be sync’d to the beat for intense sound design. You can even adjust your signal’s placement in the mix with normal, wide, and ping pong stereo modes.

REPLIKA’s powerful sound shaping features are laid out on a slick, essentials-only interface. Choose your delay mode and fine-tune lows and highs. One-knob subdivision adjustment steps you through the most widely-used delay times. And adding modulation is just as easy with simple combinations of three intuitive knobs and two buttons to choose between phaser and filter – lowpass, highpass or notch.

Replika for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX) is available to download at no charge.

Native Instruments releases the fourth video in THE FUTURE OF DJING series featuring Carl Cox

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Dec 15, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Native Instruments has launched a new video on the Future of DJing, featuring Carl Cox.

Native Instruments today continues the #futureofdjing discussion with the fourth in a series of videos aimed at exploring how technological innovation plays a role in shaping the future of DJ culture. Previously featuring artists MK, Pan-Pot, and Nic Fanciulli, the next installment in THE FUTURE OF DJING video series features pioneering UK house and techno legend Carl Cox on how he keeps his musical passion alive, and how TRAKTOR KONTROL S8 is taking a new generation of creativity forward.

Instrumental to the success of electronic music in the UK, Carl Cox has since been considered a true musical ambassador and innovator – still keeping fresh and drawing crowds, year after year. Shot on location in Sydney, Australia, the video shows Carl at the Stereosonic Festival talking about how his passion for DJing is rooted in his love for sharing quality music with others – and fueled by cutting-edge new technology.

Technology as a source of inspiration is one reason why Carl Cox is embracing the new TRAKTOR KONTROL S8, and discovering all the creative power the flagship all-in-one TRAKTOR controller offers. He describes what he likes most about the S8 is the creative challenge it presents to his performance and how enhanced Remix Decks control allows to“…actually produce something right now, live in front of an audience.” Carl provides a first-hand look at the changing art of DJing – highlighting that new DJ technology like TRAKTOR KONTROL S8 is“… enabling to create the next generation of sound.”

The story continues online with #futureofdjing.
