Berlin, October 16, 2012 – Native Instruments today introduced DROP
SQUAD, a new MASCHINE Expansion that highlights the deep sound of
dubstep and bass music culture. Bringing synthesis to MASCHINE and
MASCHINE MIKRO for the first time, DROP SQUAD includes presets from NI's
MASSIVE synthesizer which now comes as a free download when users
register or upgrade their MASCHINE software.


The 35 kits and 120 patterns in DROP SQUAD contain a host of punchy
drums, low-end wobbles, FX, stabs, sweeps and deep basses. An additional
10 special kits add tribal and mechanical one-shots along with many
wobbles, drills and synthesized 'vowel' sounds that will be instantly
recognizable to fans of dubstep.

Over 50 included MASSIVE presets add a completely new element to this
expansion. These dynamic presets have been created by top producers to
cover the full spectrum of wobbles, growls, leads, sub basses, chords
and atmospheres found in dubstep and bass music – all intuitively
controllable through MASCHINE's top row Macro knobs without having to
open MASSIVE's user interface.

A compact version of DROP SQUAD is also available for iMASCHINE – the
groove sketchpad for iPhone / iPod touch.

DROP SQUAD is available at the NI Online Shop for $59 / 49 €.

The iMASCHINE version is available at the in-app store for $0.99 / 0,79 €.
