Native Instruments has introduced LILAC GLARE – a new MASCHINE Expansion which they say features a collection of forward-thinking sounds and melodies designed for edgy pop and R&B productions. They say that the rich palette of exclusive recordings was compiled from sampled acoustic and electronic studio instruments key to these genres. LILAC GLARE runs in the latest MASCHINE software on MASCHINE STUDIO, MASCHINE, or MASCHINE MIKRO. This is what NI has to say about it...
LILAC GLARE features a wide, yet carefully selected spectrum of classic and contemporary pop-R&B sounds with expansive drums, evocative synth leads, shimmering guitars and pianos – all characteristic of the dreamy, anthemic pop rhythms of today. The expansion comes with a large variety of licks, chords, stabs, and 211 patterns for instant, expressive creativity in the studio or in live performance with MASCHINE. And complementing the sampled sounds, 50 exclusive MASSIVE and MONARK synth presets provide the in-depth sound design possibilities to shape modern pop-R&B productions with a personal sound-signature.
A compact version of LILAC GLARE is also available as an iMASCHINE Expansion, for creating beats on the go. Tracks can be exported to MASCHINE STUDIO, MASCHINE, and MASCHINE MIKRO for completion.
