Native Instruments releases Circuit Halo Expansion for Maschine

Native Instruments has released Circuit Halo – a new Maschine Expansion that combines intricately-sampled vintage synths and drum machines with contemporary patterns. Circuit Halo's sound set combines multi-sampled synths, classic drum machines, custom glitch modulation effects, and new presets for the included Massive and Reaktor Prism synths.

Circuit Halo is available now at the NI Online Shop and runs exclusively in the Maschine 2 software on Maschine Studio, Maschine, or Maschine Mikro. A compact version for iMaschine is also available via the in-app store.

Circuit Halo features a premium collection of samples from vintage synthesizers such as the Roland Juno 60, Casio VL-Tone, Prophet 5, Yamaha DX7, Sequential Circuits Pro One and Six-Trak, and a Korg MS-20. Each instrument was meticulously multi-sampled to capture the characteristic warm low end and idiosyncrasies such as pitch drift that analog equipment adds to productions. The combination of vintage sound with the latest in glitch modulation effects and arrangement styles gives producers a new way to blend classic sounds with production techniques.

The drum sounds in Circuit Halo come from a mix of vintage and modern drum machines – many customized for a unique sound. Boutique outboard gear such as a classic 80s British talkback compressor and 1/2" analog tape were used for detailed tone shaping and a good dose of warmth and character. Lush reverb reminiscent of the 80s sound was also used to add depth and vintage flavor to the expansion.

Circuit Halo's four Special Kits contain a wealth of glitched-out, grainy sounds, noises and sweeps, sound effects, and percussion and stabs. All-new Prism presets provide organic leads, pads, mallets, and flutes while Massive presets deliver textured, morphing leads, basses, and stabs.

A condensed version of Circuit Halo is also available as an iMaschine Expansion for creating beats on-the-go. The iMaschine Expansion features two projects, four drum kits, and two multi-sampled instruments. Tracks can be exported to Maschine Studio, Maschine, and Maschine Mikro for completion.

Circuit Halo was created in cooperation with Danish sound design expert Joël Krozer of 6 Bit Deep.

Circuit Halo is available now at the NI Online Shop for $49 / 49 € / £44 / ¥ 4,800 / AU$ 79 and runs in the Maschine 2 software.

The iMaschine expansion is available at the iMaschine in-app store for $0.99 / 0,89 € / £0.69 / ¥ 100 / AU$ 0.99.
