New Native Instruments – Maschine Expansion – Magnate Hustle

native_instruments_maschine_expansion_magnate_hustle

I really like the sound of this new expansion from Native Instruments designed for chart – ready urban Pop, it has some qualities that anyone with a Maschine is going to find exceptionally useful. I also love the idea that the drums in MAGNATE HUSTLE were designed and tweaked by major label producers that know how to make a hit.

Native Instruments state that MAGNATE HUSTLE is “a versatile set of punchy samples plus four kits loaded with all-new Drum Synth presets deliver the glitz of modern pop, R&B, and hip hop – a larger-than-life sound that explodes from your speakers”. I am inclined to believe this to be true but you can decide for yourself by listening to the demos at their site.

For 44 Euros, you get 53 Drum Kits, 7 Full Projects, 1304 Samples, 41 Massive Presets, 21 Multisample Instruments and 24 Drumsynth presets providing you with a massive set of drums, synths, and guitar licks and chords. check it out today at :- Native Instruments

Simmons have certainly been around a few years now with their history of electronic drums. Makes me wonder if Roland would have invented the V-Drums if it wasn’t for Simmons. Simmons have some great ideas and in our new world of everything small, compact, cheaper and competative, they have announced a new drum controller called Stryke6..

Stryke6 is the first ever iPad controller that Simmons tells us it gives you a full drum kit playing experience. It has six velocity-sensitive pads plus two foot pedals for kick and hi-hat control and its small size is perfect for playing on the move.

What is nice is the App is free and you connect your controller to your iPad. The App has a good range of sounds or alternatively via USB connect to any computer to trigger Drum sounds such as EZ Drummer, Garage Band, Logic, Ableton Live etc.
