Berlin, May 27, 2014 – Native Instruments announced today ARCANE ATTIC –

a new MASCHINE Expansion featuring gritty field recordings. Designed for

unconventional beat making across all styles and genres, this Expansion
was created, recorded, and designed by BOOM Library. ARCANE ATTIC also
comes with new presets for MASSIVE and MASCHINE’s Drum Synths, with a
selection of sounds that perfectly complement the out of the ordinary
sample material. ARCANE ATTIC is available now at the NI Online Shop and
MIKRO. A compact version for iMASCHINE is also available via the in-app

The high-quality field recordings in ARCANE ATTIC are aimed at
electronic music producers or simply anyone looking to add
unconventional sounds to their productions. The range of sounds is
highly diverse and organized into several categories. It represents a
wide spectrum from robotic and mechanical science fiction recordings to
heavy cinematic metal impacts, slams, strikes, and buzzing, percussive
details. A set of elemental sounds explode with kinetic fire and water
blasts. Producers looking to spice up their percussion will also find a
range of pistol, rifle, and cannon sounds that have been transformed
into pounding drums. Finally, a set of orchestral samples recorded with
a live orchestra are included for adding rich, larger-than-life melodies
to productions.

Complementing ARCANE ATTIC’s field recordings are a new set of 40
presets for MASSIVE, which provide additional melodic possibilities
beyond the orchestral samples. 43 MASCHINE 2 Drum Synth presets feature
a clean sound designed to complement ARCANE ATTIC’s gritty sample set
with added punch and character. In total, ARCANE ATTIC features 7
projects, 39 drum kits, and 7 special kits, plus a set of 140
pre-arranged patterns for quick inspiration.

ARCANE ATTIC was created by BOOM Library – the sound design company
founded in 2010 by Axel Rohrbach, Pierre Langer, and Tilman Sillescu.
The sounds are a selection from the BOOM Library product line – now for
the first time directly accessible within the MASCHINE beat production
environment. Their sound libraries have been featured in films like ‘Sin
City - A Dame To Die For’, TV series such as ‘From Dusk Till Dawn The
Series’, Games like ‘Battlefield 4’ and trailers for ‘The Hobbit – The
Desolation Of Smaug’, and ‘The Dark Knight Rises’.

A condensed version of ARCANE ATTIC is also available as an iMASCHINE
Expansion, for creating unconventional beats on-the-go. The iMASCHINE
Expansion features 2 projects and 4 drum kits. Tracks can be exported to
