Native Instruments has published a video in which product expert Tim Cant shows you how to add some old-school flavor to your beats.

We’ve teamed up with Waves Audio to show you how their NKS-ready effects can add subtle saturation and vintage vibes to your beats in just a few easy (and conveniently pre-mapped) steps. Watch the video to see how product expert Tim Cant uses Aphex Vintage Aural Exciter, J37 Tape, and Kramer Master Tape to distort and distress a finished beat in MASCHINE.

Want to try it out for yourself? Each Waves plugin is available as a week-long free trial, and you can grab the presets used in this video over on their site. Even better, until March 31, each of these effects are available at a steep discount of up to 80%.
