Berlin, July 22, 2015 – Native Instruments today released LONE FOREST –
a new MASCHINE Expansion aimed at producers working in dub techno and
related styles. This expansion is the first to bring features from the
recently-released MASCHINE 2.3 software update to MASCHINE. LONE FOREST
is available now at the NI Online Shop, and works with all MASCHINE
hardware running the MASCHINE 2.3 software. A compact version for
iMASCHINE is also available via the iMASCHINE in-app store.
LONE FOREST captures the reverb-heavy sound of dub techno styles ranging
from Scandinavian experimentalism to the darker, bleaker sound of
Detroit and Berlin. With low basslines, dusty drums, and haunting
atmospheres, this MASCHINE Expansion effectively captures the
reverb-heavy sound of this intriguing genre. Exclusive MONARK presets
appear for the first time, adding a rich, analog quality to this
expansion. MONARK is part of KOMPLETE SELECT – included with the latest
MASCHINE 2.3 update.
LONE FOREST also features new MASSIVE, REAKTOR PRISM, and MASCHINE Drum
Synths presets provide editable, genre-specific sounds for added
flexibility and precision sound design. LONE FOREST also takes advantage
of new MASCHINE 2.3 effects. Combined with special kits, including a
‘Broken Tape’ kit, these elements deliver the trademark atmospheric dub

Expansion, for creating beats on the go. Tracks can be exported to

genre that inspired LONE FOREST.
