Native Instruments

Native Instruments has released Polar Flare, a new Expansion focusing on organic, glacial electronica.

Inspired by the natural world, Polar Flare captures an otherworldly sound heard in a broad range of artists from Boards of Canada, to Caribou, Bonobo, Four Tet, and beyond. With metallic clangs, forest crackles, atmospheric synths, dreamy vocals, and more, Polar Flare is palette of sounds suitable for a broad range of musical styles.

Sitting across the Baltic Sea is the remote island of Bornholm, Denmark. From here, field recordings were taken of surrounding life, including forests and harbors, and compiled into kits for Battery and Maschine. From the nearby studio in an old church, classic analog synths, Rhodes keys, and vocals were recorded and come as ready-to-use samples for any sampler or DAW. Also included are new Massive and Monark presets – focusing on organic sounding bells, basses, and pads.

Polar Flare was created by the Danish studio Six Bit Deep in collaboration with top Scandinavian vocalists including Josephine Philip (Trentemøller, Darkness Falls) and Connor Fitzpatrick.

Polar Flare joins a range of over 50 Expansions. Launched in February, and based on the Maschine Expansions series, these genre-focused sound packs contain everything a musician needs to create a full track in a specific style.
