Today, measures to control the COVID-19 pandemic are forcing much of the world into an unprecedented period of restriction, isolation, and uncertainty – with the music community hit particularly hard. Native Instruments wants to support the community through this time, and help people at home to be creative.
For those out there with some extra studio time, Native Instruments is giving away the Kontakt Play Series instrument, Analog Dreams.
Full of technicolor vintage synth tones, Analog Dreams comes with over 100 customizable presets from thick analog basses to dreamy pads.
In addition to Analog Dreams, Native Instruments already provides a bumper suite of free instruments, sounds, and effects with Komplete Start, the free tier of Native’s popular Komplete bundles. For DJs, there’s Traktor DJ 2, a DJing app for desktop and iOS that’s completely free of charge. Perfect for home mixes, house parties, or anyone who wants to give DJing a spin.
In a statement on Facebook, Native executives Daniel Haver and Mate Galic said:
“These are challenging times for the global music community.
Cancellations, closures, and city lockdowns have hit artists and DJs particularly hard, with many people facing long periods of isolation. We are looking at ways we can support, and we encourage you to make the most of this time to connect with each other, learn new skills, and explore new sounds.
That’s why we’re making ANALOG DREAMS free until the end of March: A small gift to keep you inspired during all the extra home studio time.
Stay safe, look out for each other, and keep on creating.”
Analog Dreams is usually on sale at $49 USD. Download it for free until March 31st, 2020.
