Berlin, July 2012 – Native Instruments today introduced RAW VOLTAGE, a new MASCHINE Expansion which captures the sound of a huge modular synthesizer system. For instant use with MASCHINE or MASCHINE MIKRO, RAW VOLTAGE contains kits, instruments and patterns that share the unique, rich and organic sound characteristics of analog synthesis.

The sounds inside RAW VOLTAGE range from grainy, noisy and raw to sleek, cool and clinical. Sampled from a one-of-a-kind analog modular system, RAW VOLTAGE has a wide sonic scope, inspired in part by experimental and avant-garde electronica. The drum and percussion sounds are punchy, loud and direct, while the sampled basses, leads, pads and soundscapes are rich in detail and analog atmosphere. The expansion also includes 140 expertly-programmed patterns, providing a wide selection of styles from broken, jagged rhythms to steady, flowing grooves.

RAW VOLTAGE is designed to evoke the sound and character of modular analog synthesis inside MASCHINE, combining these unmistakable sounds with the renowned MASCHINE production workflow. The kits and instruments provided cross genre boundaries to inject analog feel into any musical project – from techno to hip-hop, electronica and beyond.

RAW VOLTAGE is based on a unique custom modular system used and created by Norwegian synthesis expert Roger Grønberg (Frodebeats). The system includes modules from Modcan, MOTM, Oakley, CGS, STG, Encore, Buchla plus many unique custom and DIY modules, as well as analog synthesizers like Arp Odyssey/2600 and Korg MiniKorg 700s.

A compact version of RAW VOLTAGE is also available for iMASCHINE – the groove sketchpad for iPhone® / iPod Touch®.

RAW VOLTAGE is available at the NI Online Shop for $59/49 EUR. For owners of iMASCHINE, a compact version of RAW VOLTAGE is also available via the iMASCHINE in-app store for $0.99/0,79 EUR.
