Native Instruments has launched ARTIST EXPANSION: SASHA, the third in a new series of Artist Expansions that capture the signature sound of leading music producers, and share their production toolkits with the world. Here's the story in their own words...
Over three decades, Sasha has established himself as an architect of emotive electronica. In this Expansion, he shares samples, sound design, presets, and kits that channel a diverse career of progressive UK dance music – from the ambient atmospheres of Scene Delete, to the euphoric swagger of Airdrawndagger, and the metamorphic genius of his Involver series.
ARTIST EXPANSION: SASHA is a vivid collection that spans the entire spectrum of the artist's discography, with over 800 melodic samples and loops, 35 MASCHINE kits, and 26 BATTERY kits that range from pulsing, mid-set percussive power to building blocks for atmospheric and cinematic soundscapes.
Presets for MASSIVE, MONARK, and MASCHINE's Drum Synth and Bass Synth cover everything from dark driving leads, to gritty textured bass, and lush pads.
An avid MASCHINE user himself, projects and kits in Sasha's Expansion mirror many of the producer's own studio workflows, and users can easily adopt the same ways of making music for their own productions
ARTIST EXPANSION: SASHA joins a growing range of over 70 Expansions – genre-specific sound packs full of samples, loops, presets, kits, and more for use in any DAW.
