Native Instruments has announced the release of LAZER DICE, a new MASCHINE Expansion for producers of future bass and related genres.
Blending synth-heavy electronic and deep south hip-hop, the Expansion features custom drum sounds and patterns created to reflect the rugged beats and skittering rhythms of the genre. Native Instruments’ synthesis expertise provides the screaming, future bass synth leads with new MASSIVE presets. Special Kits deliver new possibilities for live improvisation.
LAZER DICE’s 47 drum kits include rough 808 sub-bass kicks, pitched snare rolls, time-stretched hats, and deep bass drops – sounds that deliver the impact future bass demands. Moreover, LAZER DICE provides 50
new MASSIVE presets created with Native Instruments’ synth and sound design expertise, covering the full spectrum of aggressive leads, dark pads, and sweeping sub-basses that are an essential component of the
future bass aesthetic. The presets load on a pad as part of a drum kit, giving users fast access to the sounds when composing or performing. Key parameters also automatically map to MASCHINE’s eight display knobs, making quick tweaks fast and intuitive. These elements are accompanied by psychedelic effects and pitched vocals that are staples of the trap sound. And LAZER DICE’s Vocal Loop and Snare Roll Kits provide additional live performance possibilities with a set of elements perfect for on-the-fly composition.
LAZER DICE is available to purchase for $49 USD / 49 EUR. A compact version of LAZER DICE is also available for iMASCHINE in the in-app store for $0.99 USD / 0.89 EUR.

Native Instruments has recently released RAW WORKS, a signature iMASCHINE Expansion created by in-demand producer Nottz.
RAW WORKS is the third in a growing series of signature Artist Expansions exclusive to iMASCHINE – a complete, portable groove sketchpad for iPad and iPhone. Other Expansions in the series include sound packs from acclaimed DJ/producers Kerri Chandler and DJ Godfather.
RAW WORKS delivers five projects and five kits of Nottz’s signature sound exclusively to iMASCHINE. Renowned for his work with Busta Rhymes, Snoop Dogg, Kanye West, and J Dilla, Nottz is known for his authentic, old school production style. For this Expansion, Nottz sampled live sessions with his own musicians, then handpicked sounds from the recordings to create a set of gritty drum sounds and melodic phrases. The Expansion’s deep, raw basslines were processed with Nottz’s sampling expertise, delivering a key component of the producer’s signature sound.
KAOZ THEORY brings the unmistakable sound of Kerri Chandler to iMASCHINE – the deep, grooving house style that has made him one of the most respected artists on the underground scene for over 20 years. The Expansion contains a total of six kits, two instruments and two full projects. The three Drum Kits are made up of dirty, analog kicks, snares, hats, and claps. A Melodic Kit provides the trademark Chandler synth chords while two Special Kits deliver basses, vocal samples, synth stabs and keys. iMASCHINE users can also access two instruments and two full iMASCHINE projects created by Chandler himself – fully-conceived musical material available only in this iMASCHINE Expansion.
DIRTY KNOCK was created by DJ Godfather – the Detroit DJ, producer, label owner, and founding father of ghetto tech/Detroit bass. The genre combines elements of techno, house, Miami bass and turntablism, and has in turn influenced juke and trap music. Four projects and five kits deliver an array of rough basslines, analog sound effects, dirty drums, high synth stabs, rumbling 808s, and tight snares true to DJ Godfather’s signature sound. The additional melodic kit comprises one shot beeps and sweeps for giving tracks an added nuanced flair.
All samples provided come in uncompressed .WAV format (16-bit 44.1kHz) and have been processed and tweaked for immediate use. Tracks created with iMASCHINE Artist Expansions can also be exported to MASCHINE and MASCHINE MIKRO for additional editing and finalization.
The full range of iMASCHINE Artist Expansions can be purchased in the iMASCHINE In-App store for $0.99 USD / 0.89 EUR each. iMASCHINE costs $4.99 USD / 4.49 EUR.
Hark back to the heyday of classic rock and one instrument stands above the rest, a 350lb behemoth that would forever change the way we think about making music. At the heart of this monster was an array of tape machines, one per note on the attached keyboard, each playing a uniquely recorded sound. With only 8 seconds of tape per key and a cumbersome frame this machine had its limitations but was nonetheless impressive for its time, boasting a multitimbral and truly polyphonic ‘engine’. Instantly made famous by the Beatles hit ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’ and used by countless others including The Moody Blues, Rolling Stones, and prog rock legends Yes, this was the ‘must-have’ sound of the 60’s. While its use fell out of fashion the implications it made have become fundamental to modern music production.
With Mello we’ve aimed to deliver a complete and authentic recreation of this prolific instrument. Dozens of original tapes were multi-sampled on 3 different machines in order to give you the best representation of each of the 28 available sounds. To capture the live experience the key noise and inner mechanical sounds were stereo recorded, including tape noise and key-off sounds, and are all mixable to taste.
To make Mello even more versatile we’ve added a few tricks of our own, including an analog-modeled tape delay, reverb, a custom unison mode to give you stereo sound without unwanted transposition or chorusing, a switchable multimode filter, a 3-band EQ and more.
With these classics Flute, Brass, Celesta, Choir, Strings, Organs, Guitars, Piano and many more, Mello delivers a warm and buttery tone indistinguishable from the original and is, in every way we could make it, a perfect tribute to the quintessential studio instrument of the 60’s.
• Pristine and comprehensive sample library from 3 original machines
• Mixable key and mechanical noise for authentic experience
• Switchable keyboard range (original or extended)
• Stereo modes including custom unison
• Switchable multimode filter with cutoff and resonance
• ADSR envelopes for amplitude and filter with velocity sensitivity
