Native Instruments has introduced MOTOR IMPACT – a new MASCHINE Expansion that they tell us is inspired by the legacy of Detroit electronic music. This is what they have to say about it...
The expansion is aimed at producers working in techno, electro, and deep house styles, as well as anyone looking to add the textures and sounds of a legendary school of electronic music to their productions. MOTOR IMPACT runs in the latest MASCHINE software on MASCHINE STUDIO, MASCHINE, or MASCHINE MIKRO and is available exclusively at the NI Online Shop. A compact version for iMASCHINE is also available via the iMASCHINE in-app store.
MOTOR IMPACT pulls together the sound of Detroit's enduring, decade-spanning influence on electronic music. The expansion features meticulous samples of legendary analog machines including Roland 808, 909, and 707 drum machines, and the classic Juno 106 and Prophet 08 synths. Pre-mapped Group macros allow for intuitive sound shaping in the studio and during live performance. This sound set is augmented by sampled vinyl crackle, tape, and machine noise, as well as 79 exclusive MASSIVE, MONARK, and Drum Synth presets. Patterns tailored to techno, electro, and deep house styles round out the expansion's aesthetic and serve as starting points for track production.
A compact version of MOTOR IMPACT 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.
MOTOR IMPACT was produced by Fabrizio Sestito and Nicolò Papini at nichton Studio.
