Native Instruments has introduced PROSPECT HAZE, which they describe as a new MASCHINE Expansion for laid-back, melodic sounds of 90s East Coast hip-hop grooves. PROSPECT HAZE is available now at the NI Online Shop and runs in the MASCHINE 2 software on MASCHINE STUDIO, MASCHINE, or MASCHINE MIKRO. A compact version for iMASCHINE is also available via the in-app store. Here's the details direct from NI:
PROSPECT HAZE includes a set of sounds centered on the sampling techniques of classic 90s East Coast hip-hop. Jazzy samples, deep basses, and smooth drum samples provide the foundation for East Coast-inspired groove production. Playable melodic kits featuring Rhodes, flutes, and ambiences sampled with classic techniques allow users to spice up their grooves with tuneful phrases and lines. PROSPECT HAZE also includes authentic patterns, providing additional inspiration with the sound of breakbeats from 1960s- and 1970s-era rock, R&B, and funk sampled directly from the original vinyl recordings. Together these elements deliver the sound of golden era hip-hop – music that has left an indelible mark on music to this day.
A compact version of PROSPECT HAZE is also available as an iMASCHINE Expansion, for creating beats on-the-go. The iMASCHINE Expansion features three projects, four drum kits, and three instruments. Tracks can be exported to MASCHINE STUDIO, MASCHINE, and MASCHINE MIKRO for completion.
