Native Instruments has announced the release of Neon Drive, a new Maschine expansion pack providing a collection of tailored 80s-inspired sounds for producers working in contemporary pop, electronic, and R&B styles.
NEON DRIVE features a library of sounds drawing heavily on production techniques, instrumentation, and melodic construction native to 80s synth pop. This MASCHINE Expansion includes lush chord and pad sounds, emotive melodies and retro-inspired drums. Exclusive new presets for NI’s wildly popular MASSIVE synth, the organic REAKTOR PRISM, and the MASCHINE 2 Drum Synths are also included for deep sound design. With a broad range of sounds for all synth-pop-inspired music, NEON DRIVE allows producers to focus on creating the strong, catchy melodies with the sound of NI’s acclaimed synthesis expertise.
A compact version of NEON DRIVE is also available as an iMASCHINE Expansion, for creating beats on the go. Tracks can be exported to MASCHINE STUDIO, MASCHINE, and MASCHINE MIKRO for completion.
Neon Drive for Maschine 2 is available for purchase for $49 USD/49 EUR/£44 GBP. The iMaschine expansion costs $0.99 USD/0.89 EUR/£0.69 GBP.
Boscomac has announced the release of Snowflake, a free synthesizer instrument for Native Instruments Reaktor.
SNOWFLAKE is a poetic winter instrument, pretty special. It can be played from the first snowfall. Each note is a snowflake and as everyone knows, the snowflakes take various forms. This is the case here: the instrument settings allow slight sound variations for each snowflake …
The concept is quite singular because you do not set the parameters permanently but you determine the chance that a parameter is applied. The sound of the instrument is still very soft. I invite you to read some information on the dedicated page of my site and consult the “info” tab in Reaktor for each parameter for more information.
Beyond being an instrument, SNOWFLAKE is also a great way to relax, meditate, take the time to listen and watch the snow fall. This is why it has a “Automatic” mode that generates random notes and creates the snow.
Twisted Tools has announced a giveaway, offering a chance to win Polyplex, an eight-part drum sampler with extraordinary randomizing capabilities, creative layering, and near-infinite tweakability, and Totally Twisted, a collection of every current product made by Twisted Tools.

A winner will be selected at random and announced on February 1st, 2015.
