Typically, each year would bring a major update to the Maschine ecosystem, Komplete software range or Traktor DJ line, alternating between them. Massive news for Komplete Potentially the most noteworthy announcements – at least for longtime NI fans – come in relation to the Komplete software range. Here, as part of the version 12 bundle, NI has unveiled long-awaited updates to both Massive and Kontakt. The former comes in the form of Massive X , a whole new plugin synth that has been created by the team who came up with the original more than 10 years ago.
As with Massive version 1, X combines wavetable oscillators with subtractive synth elements and powerful modulation for complex sonic results.
The UI is still under wraps, although we have seen it and can confirm it has a more modular design than its predecessor, which enables synth elements to be changed and rearranged a little like Reaktor Blocks , albeit stopping slightly short of fully modular routing.
Kontakt 6 , meanwhile, builds on the design of the longstanding sampler with some subtle refinements without breaking the existing workflow. From a user perspective, the most interesting aspect of version 6 is the new dual-layer design, which will be used for all new official Kontakt instruments.
This gives users two main timbral elements to each sound, with simple controls for blending and modulating the balance of these.
The new design is shown off by a trio of new sample instruments: For instrument builders, meanwhile, NI has announced a new standalone app called Creator Tools, which is designed to ease creation of Kontakt instruments via its included Debugger and Instrument Editor elements.
The other interesting development on the Komplete front is the news that a variety of Expansion packs will now be included. These sample and preset bundles – previously known as Maschine Expansions but recently broadened in scope – bring an assortment of genre-themed sounds to the included synths and instruments.
As usual, Komplete will arrive in different sized bundles, available 1 October. The new version of Mikro gets an updated new look, matching the sleek matt black Mk3. The diminutive controller gains some of its counterparts coolest features, too. Most notable is the touchstrip which, again, can be used to control performance effects, record automation and trigger sounds. An overhauled layout and screen are designed to streamline the workflow for fast and fluid beatmaking.
The software is more of a refinement than a significant overhaul. It now has a flatter and more modern interface design that feels a little cleaner than previous versions. Under the hood it benefits from Elastique 3 timestretching, and NI promises improved sound and stability. The controllers, meanwhile, have both been redesigned to suit the new look of the software.
Both controllers gain updated pads, along with a new Mixer FX section for quickly manipulating the software. The S2 has enlarged jog wheels, which NI claims offer improved sensitivity. These are high-torque motorised platters which offer a high level of tactile responsiveness for beat matching, adjusting beat grids and scrolling through tracks.
NI will also release a whole new entry-level range of keyboards, the A Series , on 23 October. Coming in , and key varieties, these new controllers have semi-weighted keybeds and simplified NKS-friendly controls similar to those on the Maschine Mikro.
All three come with the Maschine Essentials software bundle, including the Monark and Reaktor Prism synths. The A-Series arrives 23 October.
