Berlin, March 12th, 2012 – Native Instruments today released an update
to the KONTAKT-based instrument GEORGE DUKE SOUL TREASURES. To mark this
update, the price of the product has been reduced by a dramatic 50\% for
one week only. From March 12th to March 19th 2012, the instrument is
available for $59.50 / 49,50 EUR / 4800 ¥, exclusively at the NI Online
Shop. Owners of the original GEORGE DUKE SOUL TREASURES will receive a
newsletter with a link to the free update.
The update focuses on enhanced time-stretching, made possible by recent
updates to the KONTAKT 5 engine. The new time-stretching provides a much
smoother, high-quality sound when changing tempo or pitch shifting,
adding a new flexibility to the loops and phrases, and making it easier
to incorporate them into any production. Native Instruments has
published a collection of new audio demos, showcasing the time-stretched
loops in action that can be found on the Native Instruments website.
GEORGE DUKE SOUL TREASURES is a vital resource for producers looking for
the sound of authentic soul. The instrument provides over 500 sliced and
tempo-synced keyboard loops and phrases, recorded exclusively for Native
Instruments by American soul and jazz legend George Duke. Instruments
used include acoustic, Rhodes, Wurlitzer and Clavinet pianos, recorded
using highly sought-after vintage equipment. The instrument provides an
immediate harmonic basis and is an ideal starting point for hip-hop, R&B
or soulful electronic productions.
The updated GEORGE DUKE SOUL TREASURES runs in the latest version of
KONTAKT or the free KONTAKT PLAYER.
This time-limited offer prices GEORGE DUKE SOUL TREASURES at $59.50 /
49,50 EUR / 4800 ¥ until March 19th 2012. The offer is available
exclusively at the NI Online Shop.
