Native Instruments has introduced Molten Veil, a new Maschine Expansion aimed at producers “looking for the bold, dynamic sound of mainroom tech house styles.” The expansion was curated by Slovenian DJ-producer Umek, a veteran of the international tech house scene. Molten Veil runs in the latest Maschine software on Maschine Studio, Maschine, or Maschine Mikro.
NI touts among Molten Veil’s features the “dense” basslines, “jarring” hi-hats, and deep kick drums characteristic of the four-to-the-floor mainroom tech house sound. The expansion comes loaded with auto-mapped macros for expressive control over sound shaping and effects. Exclusive Massive and Monark presets plus a collection of 178 new Maschine Drum Synth presets provide quick access to sounds specially tailored to the tech house genre.
A compact version of Molten Veil is also available as an iMASCHINE Expansion, for “creating beats on the go.” Tracks can be exported from iMaschine to Maschine Studio, Maschine, and Maschine Mikro for completion.
