Native Instruments is joining the free giveaway foray, among the likes of Moog and Korg, offering up its Analog Dreams plug-in to music makers across the globe. The Kontakt instrument is usually $49, but until the 31 March, it’s all yours, free of charge.
With cancellations in live events all over the world in the wake of COVID-19, many musicians are using this time to make new music, or share their music with the world in the form of live streams. Native Instruments hopes to support producers with this gift, inspiring creativity amidst a time of uncertainty and isolation.
Analog Dreams features synth sounds of the 70s, 80s and beyond, with creatively processed samples and a host of presets that can get you inspired quickly. NI says the plug-in is “full of technicolour vintage synth tones, Analog Dreams comes with over 100 customizable presets from thick analogue basses to dreamy pads”. Analog Dreams is part of the Play Series, alongside the likes of LO-FI DREAMS, offering real-time control of instruments in an intuitive interface.
In a statement on Facebook, Native executives Daniel Haver and Mate Galic said:
“These are challenging times for the global music community.
Cancellations, closures, and city lockdowns have hit artists and DJs particularly hard, with many people facing long periods of isolation. We are looking at ways we can support, and we encourage you to make the most of this time to connect with each other, learn new skills, and explore new sounds.
That’s why we’re making ANALOG DREAMS free until the end of March: A small gift to keep you inspired during all the extra home studio time.
Stay safe, look out for each other, and keep on creating.”
