Native Instruments has released Chromatic Fire – a free collection of sounds, Maschine kits, and projects from some of the company's favorite artists and sound designers – including Torsten Fassbender, Snipe Young, and Sasha. The Expansion – a "thank you" to the users that have inspired and been inspired by Maschine so far – forms part of the instrument's ten-year anniversary celebrations, alongside limited edition hardware and exclusive new features on Native's blog and YouTube channel.
Spanning an eclectic mix of genres, Chromatic Fire's 14 included projects showcase some of the sounds that Maschine has helped to develop or evolve since its release in 2009 – from industrial techno to East Coast hip hop and all points in between.
