Something entertaining for the weekend. Last month we mentioned that Native Instruments had a contest to see the electronica supergroup “Mostly Robot”. This week they’ve released some tour footage explaining their combination of men and machines making music.
For the next 12 days to celebrate the special deals that are running currently on selected Native Instruments products you can visit our Facebook page and enter our Native Instruments Session Strings Pro give away.
SESSION STRINGS PRO is the new gold standard for contemporary studio strings. Take control of an 11-piece ensemble, recorded with the utmost precision in four different settings for maximum flexibility and realism. With its immaculate, intimate quality, unique musical workflow and a vivid, modern edge, SESSION STRINGS PRO is the premium choice for pop, RnB and more.
Finally, Ableton come out with a 64 bit version, (Well, Almost… its still a beta) why not go and try it out for yourselves.
What They Say……….
We are pleased to announce the beta version of Live 8.4, featuring native 64-bit support. With 64-bit support, Sets in Live 8 can now accommodate much larger memory usage, and third-party plugins that support 64-bit. Registered Live 8, Suite 8, Live Intro or Live Lite 8 users can download the beta now.
The 64-bit version of Live works with PCs running Windows Vista/7/8 (64-bit) and with Intel-Macs running OS X 10.5 and up. The 64-bit version of Live 8 does not support Max for Live, video, or The Bridge. We are currently working with our partners to add support for these features.
More summer offers as Pioneer extend their £80 cashback offer to cover the Ergo digital Dj controller and their S-DJ05 speaker range.
Pioneers Ergo Dj controller offers pro level features at prices that will appeal to every pocket. This feature packed two channel Serato controller is now even better value with the £80 cash back offer.
More special summer offers this time from Native Instruments who have put both of their Maschine controllers as well as the flagship DJ controller the S4.
Native Instruments Maschine
This drum machine/controller tool needs no introduction and since it’s launch has become a bit of a classic already.
Shipping with over 6GB of sounds and with many more libaries available not only does the Maschine package offer a new way to control your studio but also adds a vast selection of sounds to your sonic arsenal.
Available now for £329
Native Instruments Maschine @ Scan
The baby brother of the family still offers the same great sounds as the bigger model but cuts down the number of dials available to the end user. In real terms you keep much of the same great functionality but have to use various short cuts to get around. This makes the Mikro more suitable for the studio producers than the more live friendly Maschine, but is still guarenteed to rock your setup.
Available now for £199
Native Instruments Maschine Mikro @ Scan
Native Instruments Traktor S4
The last of our trio also needs no real introduction. This 4 channel is the flagship Dj controller and interface from Native Instruments and ships with the latest version of Traktor Pro 2.5 making it the complete package ready to plug into your laptop and speakers.
