Native Instruments REAKTOR’s Aerobic just begs to be used inside MASCHINE. There are any number of ways to use Aerobic inside Maschine, but let’s look at two specifically: 1) as a drum synth whose individual hits can be triggered by MASCHINE’s Pads, and 2) as a DJ-style loop-mixing setup.

Maschine Expansions from NI

April 15, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Native Instruments has introduced a new series of Maschine Expansions, download libraries for its groove production system.

All expansions provide new drum kits and instruments as well as pre-programmed patterns.

The series debuts with Vintage Heat and Transistor Punch, created by Goldbaby and Surround SFX.

  • Vintage Heat was created by sampling artist Goldbaby, and specializes on warm, saturated sounds with vintage grit. The library includes 50 kits with analog, digital and acoustic origins, complemented with 50 synthesizer sounds ranging from bass and leads to brass, pads and strings. All sounds in Vintage Heat have been sampled from vintage drum machines and analog synths, and have been processed with Goldbaby‘s array of classic compressors, effect units and valve tape machines. Inventive sampling techniques, including the mapping of successive tape delay repeats to different velocity layers, further contribute to the character of the library.
  • Transistor Punch takes its inspiration from contemporary European club music, and provides sounds for a wide range of electronic styles. Created by sound designer Denis Gögdak of Surround SFX, the library contains 30 drum kits, as well as 50 bass and lead sounds that integrate with the factory library of Maschine. All sounds have been sampled from analog drum machines and synthesizers. Transistor Punch adds 20 multi-effect chains that provide additional sonic treatments, as well as a large collection of patterns by producer Martin Buttrich.

Vintage Heat and Transistor Punch are available for download purchase in the NI Online Shop for $59 / 49 EUR each.
