This new expansion also comes with synth presets for NI's Massive synthesizer, which is now a free download when you register or upgrade your Maschine software.

Drop Squad turns your Maschine or iMaschine into a low frequency instrument that will please bass music fans, with punchy drums, wobbles, synths and deep bass synth presets. It combines the best samples from dubstep, 2-step, grime and post-dubstep and combines them all into a sound pack.

This Maschine expansion comes with 35 kits including a huge variety of patterns designed for pumping out low frequency rich music. You get low-end wobbles, effects, stabs, drums, sweeps and finally deep basses. It has a unique pad layout which maps the punchy drum sounds on pads 1-8, while pads 9-16 are filled with leads, effects, licks, and bass sounds including presets from the built-in MASSIVE synthesizer. An additional 10 special kits add tribal and mechanical one-shots along with many wobbles, drills and synthesized 'vowel' sounds that will be instantly recognizable to fans of dubstep.

For the first time in a Maschine Expansion, 50 custom Massive presets specifically designed by producers specifically for Drop Squad. These presets are integrated into the Songs, Kits and Patterns, covering wobbles, growls, leads, sub basses, chords and atmospheres found in dubstep and bass music.

These presets also add useful synthesis to Maschine's intuitive groove production suite. And since Massive’s eight macro controls match perfectly with Maschine’s eight top row knobs, you get immediate tactile control of Massive’s key parameters, giving you creative control of your sound.

The Drop Squad Maschine expansion is currently available through the NI Online shop for $59. iMachine users can also avail of the compact version priced at $0.99. You can find out more about this expansion by visiting Native Instruments.
