Native Instruments launches Bass Invaders Special 19/06/12
Native Instruments has announced a 7-day sales special on three of the instruments that they say have helped to define the bass music genre: MASSIVE, RAZOR, and FM8. From June 18th to 24th, 2012, the three synthesizers will be available exclusively at the NI Online Shop for half price - or as a bundle costing $199 / 179 EUR. Here's what NI has to say about it in their own words...
The BASS INVADERS products have become absolutely essential tools for many bass music producers. MASSIVE is renowned for its heavy basses, utilizing Wave Scanning oscillators that generate sounds of both a digital and an analog aesthetic. RAZOR, developed by Berlin artist Errorsmith and Native Instruments, has an architecture based on additive synthesis, with a precise and aggressive sound perfectly suited to contemporary bass music. FM8 completes the trio with its instantly-recognizable dynamic and digital character.
The sales special is supported by a new video featuring LA's renowned bass music pioneers 12th Planet and Flinch. In the video, they discuss their use of MASSIVE, RAZOR and other NI instruments, and talk about their own experience in the dubstep and bass music scene. MASSIVE and RAZOR users can download a selection of presets from both artists for free from the campaign landing page. The BASS INVADERS special is also featured on the KOMPLETE Facebook page, with further preset sounds and tutorial videos.
'Bass music' has become a catch all term for numerous contemporary electronic musical styles, unified by a central force - bass. Encompassing genres such as drum and bass, dubstep, techno, garage, grime, funky and beyond, bass music has exploded in popularity over the past few years, and has broken out of the underground to embrace a vast new audience. NI has been at the forefront of the bass music continuum thanks to the innovative sound designers and cutting edge musicians who have developed the essential go-to tools of the trade.
