Native Instruments have been slowly firming up their product base with new updates in recent years, with the intention of making their products even more desirable for DJs, musicians and producers.
Chris Liebing has opened up about his live set-up in a new video with Native Instuments.
In the insightful video Chris show’s off his hybrid set-up including PLAYdifferently Model 1 mixer, Native Insturments’ Maschine Jam and Maschine Mikro controllers, Orion Antelope soundcard, coupled up with Allen & Heath XONE:K2 controllers all linked into the Traktor PRO 2 DJ software all sync’d together with Ableton’s Link function.
Focusrite have added an ultra portable micro-sized mic preamp and guitar input, the iTrack One Pre, to its range of iTrack iOS recording devices.
The new sound cube is small enough to fit into the palm of your hand, ideal for producers on the go, and gives users the ability to record high resolution audio onto their iPhone or iPad without the need for external power.
Just connect the iTrack One Pre to either your iPad or iPhone, plug straight in and use your favourite apps.
Native Instruments have dropped a new video feature on originality, collaboration and the creative process which showcases Jlin — one of electronic music’s most enigmatic and energetic voices on originality — and her collaboration with dancer Avril Stormy Unger.
Native Instruments are getting into the Christmas spirit by giving away a free sample download, KINETIC TREATS, which is available until Wednesday 4th January.
The brainchild of sonic craftsman Jeremiah Savage, KINETIC TREATS is a unique KONTAKT instrument based on the cool sounds of vintage children’s toys. With sound that morph and change, the samples vary all the way from delicate and airy, to dark and sinister.
Native Instruments has been doing some nifty behind the scenes tinkering of late, to get their new MASCHINE JAM controller to work with some of the most popular DAWS used for dance music creation.
It can now be used with Bitwig Studio, Ableton Live and FL Studio, as well as Native’s very own Maschine, making for a very versatile bit of kit from the Native camp. The controller editor comes with specially designed templates so users can interact with their favourite software direct from the JAM interface.
