Native Instruments Introduces Marble Rims Expansion for Maschine

Are you up for adding some new flavorsome West Coast Hip-Hop vibes to your Maschine setup? Enter Native Instruments with Marble Rims, a collection of samples from live sessions. Tasty!  

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.
