Native Instruments unveils nine game-changing new products



Exciting news for Native Instruments fans!

They have announced nine new production and performance products and three major online platform updates. The five new hardware releases across Komplete, Maschine, and Traktor – with Traktor pro 3 software being released; also four other new software releases including Komplete 12, Kontakt 6, and Massive X; and major updates for the company’s online platforms.

“This announcement marks a new chapter in NI history,” said CEO Daniel Haver. “For music-makers of all styles and abilities, there’s now an ideal entry point to the NI ecosystem – from inspirational starter kits that guide first experiences to pro-grade products that enable our users to push the boundaries of music production and performance. With these new releases, as well as updates to our existing products and online services, we hope to empower creators of all genres and abilities to express the music within themselves.”

The hardware releases kick off on September 18th with the next generation of Maschine Mikro – a new family of entry-level NI hardware. This is joined by an Mk3 update to the Traktor Kontrol S2 DJ System and a redesign of the Kontrol S4 DJ system.  The S4 introduces a unique new way to mix with revolutionary Haptic Drive™ technology – motorized, touch-sensitive jog wheels that provide tactile feedback to DJs as they perform.

These powerful controllers aim to widen access to hands-on music production, performance, and DJing by bringing innovative features and deep software integration from flagship NI hardware down to new, lower price points. We certainly can’t wait to get our hands on some of these products and keep em’ peeled for some new videos testing them out!

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
