Native Instruments Introduces Helios Ray


Native Instruments has released Helios Ray, a new Maschine Expansion providing sounds and beats drawing from London's broken beat scene and LA's abstract beat producers.

Containing three separate styles of drum kits as well as unique Melodic Kits and new Massive presets, Helios Ray is out now for Maschine and Maschine Mikro, with a compact version for iMaschine also now available as an in-app purchase via the Apple App Store.

Helios Ray contains three distinct styles of drum kits -- Vinyl, Digital and Analog. The Vinyl Kits provide vinyl kicks, finger snaps, shakers, vocal samples, claps, snares, crackle, record stops and more. They represent the loose, off-kilter hip-hop of LA's abstract beat scene.

The Digital Kits feature Brazilian and Latin percussion such as shakers, bongos and congas, and smooth, warm basses. They're designed for producers working in a nu jazz and broken beat style.

The Analog Kits contain gritty drums and percussion provided by classic hardware units. All included drum kits also feature pre-programmed patterns for each kit, providing producers with an inspiring platform from which to improvise.

Ten Melodic Kits complement the drum kits, and include a jazz guitar exclusively recorded at Bell Studios in LA . A vintage Rhodes piano is also featured, set to trigger in choke mode. Helios Ray also incorporates new Massive presets tailored to its aesthetic.

Helios Ray is available at the NI Online Shop for US$49. A compact version of Helios Ray is also available for iMaschine, the $0.99 groove sketchpad for the iPhone and iPod touch. For more info go to www.native-instruments.com/heliosray .
