Native Instruments releases Halcyon Sky expansion for Maschine 2.0

Native Instruments Halcyon Sky

Native Instruments has announced the release of Halcyon Sky, a new Maschine expansion library delivering the downtempo rhythms, organic synths, and hazy atmospheres of contemporary ambient electronica.

Designed exclusively for the MASCHINE 2.0 software, HALCYON SKY is the first MASCHINE expansion to feature exclusive presets for the PRISM synth – included in the MASCHINE 2.0 software update. HALCYON SKY also includes fresh presets for the highly successful MASSIVE synth and drum kits that take advantage of MASCHINE 2.0′s powerful Drum Synths.

HALCYON SKY’s 50 drum kits were created with a combination of sampled drums and new MASCHINE 2.0 Drum Synth presets. The samples were recorded exclusively for HALCYON SKY and contain a range of warm, saturated kicks, snares, and hats. Also included are 34 new presets for MASCHINE 2.0′s Drum Synths. Because these sounds are synthesized, they can easily be reshaped on the fly – a major advantage of synthesis-based percussion.

For the first time in a MASCHINE Expansion, producers get exclusive presets for PRISM – NI’s powerful modal synthesizer, now included in the MASCHINE 2.0 software update. The presets range from drifting atmospheric pads to plucked strings and expressive mallet instrument sounds that shift and breathe like acoustic instruments. New presets for Native Instruments’ acclaimed MASSIVE synth provide subsonic basses, deep ambiences, crunchy leads, and warm synth washes. A set of organic loops featuring detuned chords, piano, mallets, and bells, plus spacious reverbs round out HALCYON SKY’s melodic content.

HALCYON SKY was exclusively designed for the new MASCHINE 2.0 software features such as Drum Synths, sidechaining and plate reverb.

Halcyon Sky is available to purchase for $49 USD / 49 EUR.

Native Instruments launches High-Octane Holidays Giveaway

Native Instruments High-Octane Giveaway

Native Instruments has announced a holiday giveaway as a thank you to all users. Until December 31, two special gifts are available for download from the Native Instruments website.

Producers get SUPERCHARGER – a versatile compressor effect delivering warm, colorful, tube-style compression, modeled from a one-of-a-kind hardware unit.

NI’s DJ community gets four new Remix Sets for TRAKTOR’s Remix Decks based on some of the latest MASCHINE Expansions.

Native Instruments are also giving away a $25 / 25 € / ¥ 2,500 e-voucher for the NI Online Shop.

SUPERCHARGER delivers warm, responsive tube compression. The effect is particularly simple to use, with just a few clearly laid-out controls providing a wide range of sounds from subtle warmth to complete devastation. The input knob and convenient visual display allow producers to set exactly the right input level to drive the compressor.

Native Instruments Supercharger

Once the input level is set, producers can quickly dial in a wide range of compression effects using a single ‘Compress’ knob. The Compress knob is a macro knob, automatically adjusting multiple parameters including make-up gain, the responsiveness of the release control, and the degree of saturation. This means that each position of the dial provides an ideal setting. Punch and Dirt buttons deliver added impact and saturation. SUPERCHARGER complements the existing range of KOMPLETE studio effects with harmonically-rich tube sound, and is optimized for use in MASCHINE.

NI Traktor Remix Sets

Four new TRAKTOR Remix Sets provide essential loops and samples from the MASCHINE Expansions ELECTRIC VICE, PULSWERK, LAZER DICE, and STATIC FRICTION. 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 four TRAKTOR Remix Sets are available together as a free download.

These special offers are available for free from the NI website. From January 2014, Supercharger will cost $49 USD / 49 EUR. The e-voucher expires on December 31, 2013.

The Unfinished intros Humankind synth soundset collection

The Unfinished has launched Humankind, a new limited edition charity synthesizer soundset collection, in aid of Oxfam.

The Unfinished Humankind

There are four soundsets: Absynth, Massive, Omnisphere and Trilian. Each soundset contains 64 patches and is priced at £9.99.

The soundsets are ‘limited edition’ because they will only be on sale for a month. After that period, they will no longer be available.

At least 50% of sale proceeds will go to Oxfam, a charity that do fantastic work around the globe, helping those who need it most. I say ‘at least’ 50% because I will be providing the option of ‘paying what you want’ and any extra you pay over the £9.99 RRP will go directly to Oxfam. This option is there if you wish to donate more money to Oxfam.

The sounds in the four collections range from the delicate and atmospheric to the downright dirty and aggressive; packed full of beautiful pads and soundscapes, and roaring basses and sequences. There is also a Humankind Bundle, with a small discount, if you wish to pick up all the limited edition sounds.
