MASCHINE's Muscular Music

Native Instruments introduces Dark Pressure Expansion for MASCHINE      15/02/12
Native Instruments has released DARK PRESSURE, a new MASCHINE Expansion, created in association with the DJ and producer Steve Lawler and sound design house Loopmasters. They say that the pack brings the sound of tough underground dance music to MASCHINE and MASCHINE MIKRO, containing an expertly crafted selection of kicks, snares, hi-hats and percussion samples as well as a wealth of pre-produced rhythms optimized for techno, tech-house, minimal and similar genres.
DARK PRESSURE includes 42 kits with over 200 corresponding pre-programmed patterns - many created by Steve Lawler himself, providing, say NI, professional building blocks for the production of muscular electronic music. This is also the first MASCHINE Expansion to include 64 pre-sliced percussion loops for instant remixing.
NI tells us that all sounds and patches in DARK PRESSURE have been processed with pristine analog equipment as well as MASCHINE's internal effects. They say that the Expansion integrates seamlessly with any existing MASCHINE sound library and also contains 5 demo projects that showcase the character and scope of the library.
A smaller version of DARK PRESSURE is also available for iMASCHINE - the groove sketchpad for iPhone / iPod Touch.
Pricing and Availability:
DARK PRESSURE is available at the NI Online Shop for $59 / 49 EUR. The mobile version is available through In-App Purchase on the App Store for $0.99 / 0,79 EUR More information:
