User Poll for Genre/Type of Expansions we’d like to see next would be great right?!
We all love Maschine expansions no doubt. Wouldn’t it be great if users had input on what they’d like to hear in them? What better place than here? I’m sure the sound design team would love this type of feedback.
Sound off if you agree! Also, I’d love to hear what other users want to hear in upcoming packs so let us know below 👇.
I couldn't agree more - that's exactly the type of poll that would make sense. Give us a bit more time to sort out feedback, tweak a few things and then we can start getting some poll going 😉 🚀
With that said, I'd be curious to hear what everyone would like to see next as a first idea to get a Poll done.5
Thanks for the answer @Matt @ NI
To get things started with feedback, I’d love to see more foley. Random environmental sounds, one hit crowd cheers, jeers, boos, city sounds, weather, babies, animals, vehicles, etc. I use my Jam/MK3 as a soundboard during podcasting and scoring video content. Also like creating instruments out of random stuff for beats.
Id also like some more hardcore metal, scarecore or spooky dark stuff. While I’m a hip hop guy, our genre draws reference from everything and I want to make unique stuff but it’s getting hard when source material seems to be based on the same sounds these days.
Also, let’s give Jazz some love. There’s jazzy sounding expansions but I think NI can dive deeper.
Finally, I love everything MSX Audio does for you guys…more from them please!🙏5
MSX Audio always delivering quality stuff.
I'm with you on the foley aspect but this could also be its own Kontakt instrument.
Curious to hear what others think?2
Everything with bpm>120, techno, tech house, dnb ... no more hiphop and soul 😉. Something like Rythm Source, Body Mechanik or Liquid Energy3
- Dark and Heavy
- Foley (including all sorts of mechanical, electromechanical and electronic noises)
- Field Recordings
- Left Field
In general: Complex and unusual sounds, which cannot be done by every other synth (like 808s - 😁)
Regarding Kontakt Instruments: I prefer to use the raw samples in Machine, especially because it also works on the M+.6
I‘d really like very soft and unusal drums: brushes, stick clicks and weird experimental noises etc. Could be covered with a Jazz extension probably.6
Id love a new expansion or few that featured soft brushes, clicks, experimental and world percussion. Could make for a pretty cool Play Instrument too. Blending different sounds while adjusting attack and LfOs to come up with our own percussion.
i hope everyone includes sounds that may have even been covered in the past. Trap, Hip Hop and Dance get lots of repeat love in expansion store. Can’t have too much of anything made well right?0
808s have had quite the extended run haven’t they?🤨
By Left Field do you mean there’s a genre or style of music im unaware of or, like “outta left field” as in just something random and unexpected?0
By Kontakt instrument do you mean a Foley Play series where you could say blend A. crowd cheer sample and B. Crowd Boos sample processed with other effects to create a whole stadium vibe?1
Yes, that’s how I understood Left Field… I think there’s at least one Expansion (Warped Symmetry) where it is mentioned.1
I think foley is an interesting idea, but it's also a very big field. I get Computer Music sometimes and the free disc often has a few hundred foley type sounds, though sometimes very narrow in source (eg sounds of things in the kitchen).
While I'm a big fan of more ambient / cinematic types of sound, it seems to be the Play Instruments are covering some of those off. I'm only a dabbler, and probably not at all representative of a large portion of the audience, but I do like sound of the 60s / 70s. Not sure how those would translate to an expansion though!1
I think full on Vapourwave and Synthwave expansions would be really cool. Or an 80s synth pop expansion that sounds like stuff The Weeknd is doing. (Which pretty much sounds like 80s Prince, MJ, Depeche Mode etc. haha)5
Interested in what type of 60/70s you mean. Any artist or tune you can name that captures the vibe?0
Ethnic or eclectic genres, i.e. North American indigenous, Gypsy Django, salsa, merengue, bachata, spaghetti western, 1920s swing, Pakistani, etc.
And +1 for foleys.6
Future bass, hybrid trap, dark trap genres, please.
We really deserve more cool hard-hitting sounds, please! Still curious why so little was done in that direction.3
