Native Instruments released OPALINE DRIFT, a new Expansion that draws on downtempo indie-electronica and beyond.
OPALINE DRIFT echoes the blissful reverie of indie-electronica, shoegaze, and contemporary electronic styles. With shimmering guitars, wistful synths, and warmly-textured drums, OPALINE DRIFT provides producers with a palette of iridescent colors and dreamy textures for building the foundations of sublime sonic excursions.
Original recordings of reverb-washed guitars and bass – coming as kits, samples, and construction loops for any DAW – make it easy to create captivating melodies. Warmly-saturated kicks, snares, hi-hats, and percussion come as kits for BATTERY and MASCHINE for building driving, hypnotic beats. While specially-designed presets for MASSIVE and MONARK give producers hazy pads and warm analog basses for adding dream-like textures to their tracks.
OPALINE DRIFT joins a range of over 60 Expansions. Based on the acclaimed MASCHINE Expansions series, these genre-focused sound packs contain everything a musician needs to create a full track in a specific style, and can be used in any DAW.
