Native Instruments Introduces Dubstep Expansion For MASCHINE
October 16, 2012 by Janice Brown
Drop Squad includes presets from NI’s Massive bass synth – which now comes as a free download when users register or upgrade their Maschine software – bringing synthesis to the Maschine and Maschine Mikro groove sequencers for the first time.
According to Native Instruments…
The 35 kits and 120 patterns in Drop Squad contain a host of punchy drums, low-end wobbles, FX, stabs, sweeps and deep basses. An additional 10 special kits add tribal and mechanical one-shots along with many wobbles, drills and synthesized ‘vowel’ sounds that will be instantly recognizable to fans of dubstep.
Over 50 included Massive presets add a completely new element to this expansion. These dynamic presets have been created by top producers to cover the full spectrum of wobbles, growls, leads, sub basses, chords and atmospheres found in dubstep and bass music – all intuitively controllable through Maschine’s top row Macro knobs without having to open Massive’s user interface.
