Native Instruments has announced THE FUTURE OF DJING, a new video series featuring acclaimed international artists and how new technologies found on TRAKTOR products inspires creativity. Throughout the summer of 2014, THE FUTURE OF DJING series will highlight the artist, and how technological innovation plays a role in their performance.

The first video features house icon Marc Kinchen aka MK, who’s musical career has given rise to some of dance music’s most iconic tunes. In this video, Marc talks about how technology has always inspired his DJing and fuels his concept of the ideal live DJ performance – creating a track from start to finish live while DJing. MK also shares his vision where a future generation of talented DJ/producers will be setting the new standards of DJ culture without ever touching vinyl or playing an instrument.

Shot on location in Glasgow, Scotland on Record Store Day, the video shows Native Instruments spending the day around town with Marc as he talks about the evolution of the DJ/producer, makes an in-store appearance, and performs at the Lovelife Festival held at The Arches club. Marc is seen using the KONTROL X1’s multi-purpose touch strip to control effects, loop, and beat-jumping.

The FUTURE OF DJING video series aims to kick-start discussions with artists, labels, and the media about the future of DJing. As an added bonus, Native Instruments is giving away five of the TRAKTOR KONTROL X1 controllers signed by Marc in the video. To win, people must leave a comment on the video’s Facebook post. Five winners will be selected at random.

Native Instruments releases Arcane Attic for Maschine

Native Instruments has announced the release of Arcane Attic, a new Maschine Expansion pack featuring gritty field recordings.

Designed for unconventional beat making across all styles and genres, this Expansion was created, recorded, and designed by BOOM Library. ARCANE ATTIC also comes with new presets for MASSIVE and MASCHINE’s Drum Synths, with a selection of sounds that perfectly complement the out of the ordinary sample material.

Native Instruments Arcane Attic

The high-quality field recordings in ARCANE ATTIC are aimed at electronic music producers or simply anyone looking to add unconventional sounds to their productions. The range of sounds is highly diverse and organized into several categories. It represents a wide spectrum from robotic and mechanical science fiction recordings to heavy cinematic metal impacts, slams, strikes, and buzzing, percussive details. A set of elemental sounds explode with kinetic fire and water blasts. Producers looking to spice up their percussion will also find a range of pistol, rifle, and cannon sounds that have been transformed into pounding drums. Finally, a set of orchestral samples recorded with a live orchestra are included for adding rich, larger-than-life melodies to productions.

Complementing ARCANE ATTIC’s field recordings are a new set of 40 presets for MASSIVE, which provide additional melodic possibilities beyond the orchestral samples. 43 MASCHINE 2 Drum Synth presets feature a clean sound designed to complement ARCANE ATTIC’s gritty sample set with added punch and character. In total, ARCANE ATTIC features 7 projects, 39 drum kits, and 7 special kits, plus a set of 140 pre-arranged patterns for quick inspiration.

ARCANE ATTIC was created by BOOM Library – the sound design company founded in 2010 by Axel Rohrbach, Pierre Langer, and Tilman Sillescu. The sounds are a selection from the BOOM Library product line – now for the first time directly accessible within the MASCHINE beat production environment. Their sound libraries have been featured in films like ‘Sin City – A Dame To Die For’, TV series such as ‘From Dusk Till Dawn The Series’, Games like ‘Battlefield 4’ and trailers for ‘The Hobbit – The
Desolation Of Smaug’, and ‘The Dark Knight Rises’.

A condensed version of ARCANE ATTIC is also available as an iMASCHINE Expansion, for creating unconventional beats on-the-go. The iMASCHINE Expansion features 2 projects and 4 drum kits. Tracks can be exported to MASCHINE STUDIO, MASCHINE, and MASCHINE MIKRO for completion.

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on May 22, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Native Instruments has released version 1.1 of iMaschine, the beat sketchpad for iOS devices.

Native Instruments iMaschine
The latest version of the app is optimized for iPad, adapting to its larger screen layout. The update also includes a generous set of new sounds, iTunes sampling, and more.

iMASCHINE allows users to create music sketches on-the-go with their iPad or iPhone. With an eclectic selection of drums, synths, one-shots, and a built-in audio recorder, it is designed for on-the-go beatmaking.

The update features a new user interface and an optimized layout for iPhone 5, iPad and iPad mini. On the iPad, the modified interface allows two-handed operation: editing and performing functions are now on the same window as iMASCHINE’s 16 drum-pads, 2-octave keyboard and the audio-recorder, making its workflow even smoother. Aside from iMASCHINE’s standard library, the update also includes QUANTUM COLLECTION – a brand-new iMASCHINE Expansion featuring a choice selection of sounds from the recently released MASCHINE 2 Library. The new iTunes sampling allows users to capture parts from the music on their iOS device and edit the samples’ start and end points.

Writing and performing with iMASCHINE becomes easier, thanks to a number of helpful workflow enhancements. Intuitive XY performance controls are a new way to perform effects. A swipe redo/undo function is a welcome addition for an even faster workflow. Lastly, this iMASCHINE update adds a metronome on/off switch – a popular request from the iMASCHINE community. Anyone who already owns iMASCHINE gets this entire feature set, including QUANTUM COLLECTION, for free by updating the iMASCHINE app on their iOS device.

Changes in iMaschine v1.1

  • iPad optimization for two handed-workflow.
  • Sampling from iTunes.
  • Free ‘Quantum Collection’ sound pack.
  • XY performance controls on mixer page.
  • Swipe gestures for redo and undo.
  • GUI facelift.
  • Enhanced sample editing functionality, start and end point now adjustable.
  • iPhone 5 screen support.
  • Metronome on/off switch.

Current iMASCHINE owners get the update free by updating the iMASCHINE app on their iOS device. New customers can get iMASCHINE for $4.99 / 4.49 EUR / £2.99 GBP.
