Native Instruments has introduced NEON DRIVE – a new MASCHINE Expansion that they say provides a collection of tailored 80s-inspired sounds for producers working in contemporary pop, electronic, and R&B styles. A genre debut for Native Instruments, NEON DRIVE 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.
A spokesperson said, "NEON DRIVE features a library of sounds drawing heavily on production techniques, instrumentation, and melodic construction native to 80s synth pop. This MASCHINE Expansion includes lush chord and pad sounds, emotive melodies and retro-inspired drums. Exclusive new presets for NI's wildly popular MASSIVE synth, the organic REAKTOR PRISM, and the MASCHINE 2 Drum Synths are also included for deep sound design. With a broad range of sounds for all synth-pop-inspired music, NEON DRIVE allows producers to focus on creating the strong, catchy melodies with the sound of NI's acclaimed synthesis expertise."
