Native Instruments has released LUCID MISSION, the latest addition to the MASCHINE Expansion range. Here's the details in their own words...
Inspired by the high-energy aesthetic of EDM, dubstep, trap, and modern pop, this Expansion contains elevating kits, presets, and projects ready for instant use with the entire MASCHINE family. LUCID MISSION is available now at the NI Online Shop and runs in MASCHINE 2 software. A compact version for iMASCHINE is also available for purchase via the in-app store.
Tailored to the surging momentum of EDM genres, LUCID MISSION contains an uplifting selection of 8 full projects, 40 drum kits, 32 Drum Synth presets, and 50 MASSIVE sounds. Drums, lead synths, basses, and pads characteristic of the euphoric atmosphere of the EDM movement provide the perfect material for anthemic productions. 32 pre-programmed MASCHINE Drum Synths kits deliver a wide selection of filtered and saturated drum sounds for big room atmosphere. Plus, customized percussion loops add extra flavor, and put the finishing touch to tracks.
Exclusive to LUCID MISSION are 50 new MASSIVE presets that cover a full spectrum of vibrant sounds from crisp leads, plucks, and basses, to solid bass drums and percussion. A special kit consisting only of MASSIVE lead sounds with a multitude of variations allows on-the-fly sound tweaking and quick-access workflow. For added ambience, evocative pads and effects load directly into MASCHINE through the kits and automatically map to the hardware's display knobs for easy parameter modeling.
A compact version of LUCID MISSION is also available as an iMASCHINE Expansion, and features 2 projects and 4 kits for use on-the-go. Tracks can be exported to MASCHINE STUDIO, MASCHINE, and MASCHINE MIKRO for completion.
