Native Instruments has 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.
According to the folks at Native Instruments, the sounds inside Raw Voltage range from grainy, noisy and raw to sleek, cool and clinical. Sampled from an analog modular system, Raw Voltage has a wide sonic scope inspired in part by experimental and avant-garde electronica. The expansion also includes 140 programmed patterns, providing a 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. The kits and instruments provided cross genre boundaries to inject analog feel into any musical project.
Raw Voltage 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. Raw Voltage is available at the NI Online Shop (http://www.native-instruments.com/rawvoltage) for US$59. For owners of iMaschine, a compact version of Raw Voltage is also available via the iMaschine in-app store for $0.99.
