Native Instruments has released Dark Pressure (http://www.native-instruments.com/darkpressure), a new Maschine Expansion, created in association with DJ and producer, Steve Lawler, and sound design house, Loopmasters.
The pack brings the sound of underground dance music to Maschine and Maschine Mikro, containing a selection of kicks, snares, hi-hats and percussion samples, as well as pre-produced rhythms optimized for techno, tech-house, minimal and similar genres.
Dark Pressure includes 42 kits with over 200 corresponding pre-programmed patterns. This is also the first Maschine Expansion to include 64 pre-sliced percussion loops for instant remixing.
A smaller version of Dark Pressure is also available for iMaschine — the groove sketchpad for the iPhone and iPod touch. Dark Pressure is available at the NI Online Shop for US$59. The mobile version is available through an in-app purchase on the Apple App Store for $0.99.
