Native Instruments has released Lazer Dice, a new Maschine Expansion for producers of future bass and related genres. Blending synth-heavy electronic and deep south hip-hop, the Expansion features “custom drum sounds and patterns created to reflect the rugged beats and skittering rhythms of the genre.”

Native Instruments’ synthesis expertise provides the future bass synth leads with new Massive presets. Special Kits deliver new possibilities for live improvisation. Lazer Dice is available for Maschine and Maschine Mikro; a compact version is also available for iMaschine.

Lazer Dice’s 47 drum kits include rough 808 sub-bass kicks, pitched snare rolls, time-stretched hats, and deep bass drops. It provides 50 new Massive presets.

Lazer Dice is available at the NI Online Shop for US$49. A compact version of Lazer Dice is also available for iMaschine at the Apple App Store. For more info go to .
