Native Instruments launches Holiday Giveaway

Native Instruments today launched their annual holiday giveaway with two special gifts as a thank you to all registered users. Until December 31, both gifts are available for download from the Native Instruments website.

For producers, DRIVER is a filter distortion effect designed for subtle to drastic sound manipulation, while five new Remix Sets for TRAKTOR’s Remix Decks will be released as a free bundle for Native Instruments’ DJ community.

Native Instruments Driver and Remix Sets

DRIVER is a creative filter distortion effect for adding dynamic motion and texture to source material, designed by the creator of MASSIVE. The filter section delivers a wide range of effects, from extremely smooth to completely saturated. DRIVER offers low pass and notch filters, plus a distortion unit and versatile modulation sources. The diversity and quality of the resulting sound are consistently inspiring, and let producers segue smoothly from a warm, high-quality filter effect to all-out sonic mayhem. An envelope follower and audio modulation allow users to animate or transform the original signal, taking the sound beyond what the filter and distortion sections do alone. DRIVER can also be triggered via sidechain for dynamic effects that move with the music and integrates seamlessly with MASCHINE.

The five TRAKTOR Remix Sets in Native Instruments’ holiday giveaway provide users with diverse sounds ready for immediate use in TRAKTOR’s Remix Decks. TRAKTOR Remix Sets are premium-grade loop and one-shot sample packs, providing DJs with new expressive possibilities for their sets, allowing live remixing and creative track manipulation. TRANSISTOR PUNCH and DROP SQUAD are sets of new samples based on sounds from successful MASCHINE Expansions. DEEP GROOVE provides users with a set of sounds specifically created for deep house and techno styles, while ETHNIC PERCUSSION provides loops and one shots featuring rhythms from Indian and Latin music traditions. HOLLYWOOD CRUNCH is an exclusive Remix Set created by producer Comfort Fit, featuring hand-selected sounds from his personal collection. All five TRAKTOR Remix Sets are available together as a free download.

These special offers are available until December 31 from the Native Instruments website.

Native Instruments introduces new generation of artist-based TRAKTOR Remix Sets

Native Instruments has introduced a new generation of TRAKTOR Remix Sets set up for immediate use with the latest TRAKTOR software with Remix Deck technology.

Native Instruments Traktor Remix Sets

These exclusive premium-grade loops and one-shot sample packs provide DJs of different musical genres with complete tracks by renowned artists for enhancing sets, jamming and live remixing. Released in cooperation with leading online music retailers, the series kicks off in style with M.A.N.D.Y., who are celebrating 10 years of Get Physical with their track ‘Twisted Sister’, out now exclusively on Beatport.

Programmed for ease-of-use and flexibility, the ‘Twisted Sister’ Remix Set™ provides DJs with 64 loops and one-shot-samples that are divided into different sections, identified by groups, pages and colors. All pages contain the original track split into four easy to use groups for drums (red), bass (pink), synthesizer lead (green) and sound effects/vocals (blue). While pages 1 and 2 contain the key elements of a track, pages 3 and 4 are the performance pages providing performable synths and additional vocal shots. With this new generation of TRAKTOR Remix Sets, DJs now have the ability to truly perform live.

TRAKTOR’s Remix Decks were introduced with the new version of NI’s flagship DJ software TRAKTOR PRO 2.5, which came as a free update for all existing users of TRAKTOR PRO 2. Remix Decks allow DJs to creatively remix and rearrange tracks before and during their actual performance.
With the all-new generation of TRAKTOR Remix Sets, DJs of any genre get inspiring fuel to perform live edits, layer individual parts, or work individual song elements by different artists coherently into their own DJ sets with total freedom, creating their own trademark sound.

Each regular track deck within TRAKTOR PRO 2 and TRAKTOR SCRATCH PRO 2 can be switched to a Remix Deck, thus offering dedicated transport, sync and tempo master controls. With its 16 stylish, multi-colored pads to fire loops and one-shot samples, the TRAKTOR KONTROL F1 was designed specifically to control the TRAKTOR Remix Decks and provides full and tactile control – DJs can combine this with Native Scratch timecode control via vinyl or CDs, or use the jog wheels of the KONTROL S4 and KONTROL S2 hardware.

TRAKTOR Remix Sets are available exclusively through major download shops for less than $4.99 USD.

The ‘Twisted Sister’ Remix Set™ by M.A.N.D.Y. is available now exclusively at Beatport.
