Native Instruments Introduces Drop Squad


Native Instruments today introduced Drop Squad, a new MASCHINE Expansion that they say highlights the deep sound of dubstep and bass music culture. Here's what they have to say in their own words and capital letters:
Bringing synthesis to MASCHINE and MASCHINE MIKRO for the first time, DROP SQUAD includes presets from NI's MASSIVE synthesizer which now comes as a free download when users register or upgrade their MASCHINE software.
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.
A compact version of DROP SQUAD is also available for iMASCHINE – the groove sketchpad for iPhone / iPod touch.
Pricing and Availability:
DROP SQUAD is available at the NI Online Shop for $59 / 49 €.
The iMASCHINE version is available at the in-app store for $0.99 / 0,79 €. More information:
