NI MARBLE RIMS Expansion for MASCHINE 2.0
Berlin, February 27, 2014 – Native Instruments today released MARBLE
RIMS – a new MASCHINE Expansion offering producers the laid-back,
sun-kissed flavor of classic and contemporary SoCal hip hop. Adding to
the scope of included kits and sounds, MARBLE RIMS delivers exclusive
recordings from renowned West Coast artists and producers.
Producers can choose from a palette of 40 lovingly-sampled instruments
ranging from SoCal staples such as analog basses and leads, soulful
electric pianos, and layered percussion, to live sampled guitar licks,
one-shots and beat sequences. Benchmark keyboard instruments and synths
such as the Fender Rhodes Mark 1, Hammond B3 Organ, a Minimoog Model D,
and more were all carefully sampled then equalized using vintage EQs.
Exclusive to MARBLE RIMS are a collection of samples taken from live
sessions with some of the most iconic producers and musicians of the
urban West Coast. Guitar licks and one-shots featuring Marlon Williams
of Warren G fame were recorded using custom and vintage equipment.
Highlighting some of the unique equipment Marlon used was a 1978 Gibson
Les Paul custom and a 1978 vintage Fender Stratocaster. Six urban kits
and drum samples by rhythm virtuoso Dae One deliver classic West Coast
beats along with samples designed by Hallway Productionz, and Amplified.
Adding to the Expansion’s bold character are four special kits
containing MIDI sequences by legendary keyboardist Kenneth Crouch.
MARBLE RIMS is available now exclusively at the NI Online Shop for $49 /
49 € / ¥ 4,800.
