Native Instruments has announced the release of two new additions to its Kontakt Play Series of instruments created in collaboration with hip hop innovator Noah “40” Shebib, the producer of Drake, Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, Nas, Sade, Alicia Keys, PartyNextDoor, and Action Bronson.

A go-to instrument for lush pads, bottom-heavy bass, and singing leads, 40’s Very Own Keys covers a huge spectrum of sounds – all of which can be modulated, tweaked, and transformed with a range of custom controls including a dedicated “40” macro that lets users reinterpret his signature “underwater” sound with an easy to use interface.

Meanwhile, 40’s Very Own Drums delivers high-quality drum sounds, with every kick, clap, and hi hat mixed to perfection and infused with 40’s signature style. From languid and moody, to crisp and hard-hitting, users can create the iconic drum sounds for which “40” became known.

40 recorded all the sounds for both instruments using his personal collection of synths, pianos, and a range of drum kits and percussion instruments. All sounds were captured with state-of-the-art microphones, and processed with a wealth of top-level, sought-after outboard effects at 40’s now-legendary SOTA studios in Toronto, Canada.

Priced $69 USD / 69 EUR each, you can purchase both 40’s Very Own instruments for only 99 USD/EUR until May 22nd, 2022.
