Native Instruments today introduced the latest installment of their DISCOVERY SERIES – the range of KONTAKT Instruments based around specific musically vibrant locations. DISCOVERY SERIES – CUBA celebrates the sounds of the master musicians of Havana – rich, varied, and joyful music that encompasses the melodic and rhythmic traits of son, rumba, salsa and merengue. KONTAKT users can now add the special flavor of Cuba to almost any production style – from house and techno to pop, indie, and world styles.

DISCOVERY SERIES – CUBA delivers a host of meticulously-sampled instruments arranged into melodic and percussive ensembles. Its eight melodic and nine percussive ensembles are organized into authentic 
instrument combinations, expertly compiled to reflect the varied styles of Cuba’s musical landscape – suitable for traditional projects as well as contemporary pop and dance productions.

CUBA offers a library of rhythmic patterns and harmonic progressions – all easily tweakable to fit specific productions using the powerful, built-in sequencer. A more human feel can be applied via the Groove and 
Feel knobs. Users can also adjust microtiming at the instrument level for an added level of rhythmic nuance. The Intensity knob adjusts the overall velocity of the performance, and 6/8 or 4/4 timings can be 
selected depending on the production style.

Also included is a mixer section featuring studio quality effects, including Solid EQ, convolution reverb, tape saturation and compression.
