Native Instruments has released MIDNIGHT SUNSET, a new, $49 Expansion focusing on late-’70s and early-’80s funk, R&B, and boogie.
It “melts down” a sound made famous by SOLAR Records, (Dynasty, The Whispers) as well as artists like Prince and Rick James – a sound that influenced music well beyond the decade and later into ‘90s West Coast hip hop. MIDNIGHT SUNSET contains original recordings of horns, guitars, bass, and more, coming as one shots and loops for any DAW, and Sample Instruments for MASCHINE.
The sound of iconic drum machines from the period can be found in kits for BATTERY and MASCHINE. Analog-inspired synth presets for MASSIVE, MONARK, and REAKTOR PRISM let producers dial in distinctive, vintage tones suitable for any style of music.
MIDNIGHT SUNSET joins a range of over 50 Expansions. Based on the MASCHINE Expansions series, these genre-focused sound packs contain things a musician needs to create a full track in a specific style, and can be used in any DAW. Go to https://www.native-instruments.com/expansions for more info.
