“I wanted a practical writing tool that would generate musical patterns based on user-controlled variables.”
– Vince Clarke, 2015
BROOKLYN, NY, USA: synth-pop pioneer Vince Clarke is proud to announce availability of the IMAGINATOR VCX-378 — the second product release in an ongoing series of creative and utilitarian modules for the ever-present Eurorack small-format modular system under the namesake Clarke company name, designed and built to exacting standards in close collaboration with British ‘boutique’ analogue synthesiser and accessory designer/manufacturer Analogue Solutions — as of November 24…
Musical imagination is a wonderful thing. Synthesisers and associated modern-day music technology can help make that happen in wonderful ways. With an amazing number of hit singles and chart-topping albums to his Ivor Novello Award-winning songwriting name and an accompanying hard-earned and hard-working synthesiser collection to die for, synth-pop pioneer Vince Clarke clearly has it all in spades. So just imagine if you could call upon an amazingly musically inspirational device for assistance when seeking that defining elusive musical hook… well, you need not imagine anymore as the IMAGINATOR VCX-378 does just that, fresh from the imaginative musical mind of Vince Clarke! After all, sometimes serious songwriting synth-pop pioneers still need a helping hand (or Eurorack module): “I wanted a practical writing tool that would generate musical patterns based on user-controllable variables.”
Vince Clarke got what he wished for… the ingenious IMAGINATOR VCX-378 produces one-bar musical phrases based on either user-control of the Clarke company’s clever bespoke musical algorithm or a quasi-random solution. So anyone seeking to trigger their own musical imagination (and MIDI synthesisers) should simply add an IMAGINATOR VCX-378 to their Eurorack small-format modular system setup. The result? Almost unlimited combinations and permutations that will both inspire and amaze as it helps when searching for that defining elusive musical hook.
Housed in a 36 HP-width Eurorack module, the IMAGINATOR VCX-378 has a front facia-located one-octave ‘keyboard’ — with each ‘note’ having a push button and associated LED — alongside two Quantize sections, Octavize and Transpose sections, a Velocity treatment, plus internal (Sequencer) and external (Midi/Clock) clocking, as well as a full MIDI interface.
In most cases, users will want to sync to their sequencing software by sending the IMAGINATOR VCX-378 a MIDI note clock. This can be downloaded from the Clarke company website (http://www.vinceclarkemusic.com/circuits/). The IMAGINATOR VCX-378 then references these notes and uses this information to clock the musical patterns it produces. With everything correctly connected, users can use soft synths or send those musically imaginative patterns out to an external synthesiser — something close to Vince Clarke’s musical heart.
Helpfully, Vince Clarke himself has taken time out from an always musically successful schedule to prepare some seriously user- friendly tutorials to transport the new IMAGINATOR VCX-378 user from novice to expert in no time. “For full operation of the unit, I suggest you make yourself a nice cup of tea and watch the user video,” he says, before later concluding: “Thanks for watching… and now I must get back to my day job.”
Jesting aside, while the IMAGINATOR VCX-378 makes for a musically imaginative holiday season gift for the seasoned synth lover in someone’s life, note that it will produce inspiring musical phrases well beyond the 12 days of Christmas! Let’s hand off here to ‘tutor’ Vince Clarke to blow our musical minds with some insightful IMAGINATOR VCX-378 note-related number crunching: “With one note there are 16 possible positions within one bar for the note to go. With two notes there are 120 possible positions. With three notes there are 560. This increases and then decreases exponentially. So, if we do the math, we can say that using one to 16 notes there are a possible 65,535 combinations. Remember: we are only talking about one note. Once you start adding pitch to this equation then the numbers really go through the roof. No wonder there seems to be an unlimited number of one-bar patterns.” Perhaps the IMAGINATOR VCX-378 is not just for Christmas, after all?
Berlin, November 23, 2015 – Native Instruments today launched TruTorials – a new short video series featuring key MASCHINE workflow tips presented in a fresh, inspiring format. The series’ core concept focuses on a unique hands-on approach to MASCHINE that both educates and inspires creativity. In each episode, a pair of hands guides the viewer by performing simple, useful techniques that appeal to MASCHINE music producers of all styles. And along with the help of animated text, twelve TruTorials videos teach and inspire in less than 90 seconds per episode – without the use of a traditional voice over.
TruTorials videos cover a wide spectrum of music production skills ranging from essential workflow tips to exploring more creative ways of making music with MASCHINE. The Detroit Donuts episode for example, shows an easy and intuitive way to add drums in step mode and then nudge multiple notes at once to create interesting patterns directly from the hardware. Follow Your Snare explores MASCHINE’s powerful sidechain features for beat-synced filter effects. And Make a Move shows how to add expression to sounds by recording automation – all just highlights from the first season.
TruTorials Season 1 is the first in an ongoing series. All twelve Season 1 episodes are available to watch now online.

MPC-Samples.com and BBoyTech are proud to announce the release of The Vintage 73 EP, our incredibly faithful multisampled reproduction of the iconic and much sought-after Fender Rhodes electric piano, optimized entirely for MPCs and Maschine.
Recorded using Corry’s own beautifully restored 1972 Fender Rhodes Mk1 (73 key suitcase model), we’ve perfectly captured the broad range of velocity- sensitive timbres and tones of this vintage classic by sampling 4 unique velocities for each and every note, providing an instrument recreation like you’ve never before experienced in an MPC.
From the distinctively rich and soulful bell like tones heard when playing softly, all the way up to the more aggressive raw tones at higher velocities, this unique MPC instrument perfectly translates the true sound of a real Rhodes to your pads.
There’s 292 samples in total all in standard WAV format along with a number of different programs precisely tailored for various samplers and operating systems including an MPC Software Expansion Pack for the MPC Renaissance/Studio/Element, a Maschine instrument, MPC5000 & MPC4000 keygroup programs and memory reduced versions for MPC1000, MPC2500, MPC500, JJOS and MPC2000/XL.
The Vintage 73 EP – without doubt the most authentic Fender Rhodes recreation ever made for the MPC. Available exclusively from MPC- Samples.com for instant download after purchase.
Berlin, November 12, 2015 – Native Instruments today introduced iMASCHINE 2 – the follow up to their acclaimed beat making sketchpad for iOS. iMASCHINE 2 expands on the original with a new set of powerful features, including the Arranger, Step Mode, and Smart Play functionality. It is also the first music production app to include optimizations for the new 3D Touch features on iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. The app is aimed at users of the original iMASCHINE, as well as iOS users who want to start making music at an affordable price. It is also the perfect mobile complement to the full home studio setups of MASCHINE hardware owners. iMASCHINE 2 normally costs $9.99, but is available at the Apple App Store for a special introductory price of $4.99 until December 1, 2015.
iMASCHINE 2 adds new, powerful features to the acclaimed simple workflow of the original. The Arranger allows producers to turn loops and scenes into full tracks by creating different patterns per group, and then adding, moving, and deleting song sections. Step Mode facilitates drum programming with no finger drumming skills required – users can use the 4×4 pad grid as a step sequencer to produce loops. The new Smart Play keyboard introduces Scale, Chord and arpeggiator functionality to iMaschine 2, allowing users to play chords, melodies, and basslines that are always in-key. Scale mode offers users to select from a variety of traditional and non-traditional scales, while Chord mode will turn a single key stroke into a full chord, which is especially useful when working on a mobile device. Within Chord Mode, the new Chord Sets present ready-to-play progressions to inspire and augment compositions. Furthermore, a powerful arpeggiator makes it easy to add dynamic motion to a track. Projects created with the original iMASCHINE open effortlessly in iMASCHINE 2, allowing producers to use these new features on all their tracks.
iMASCHINE 2 introduces color coding for fast visual organization of projects. Users can now find sounds and groups by color and navigate through songs with ease. For users of iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, iMASCHINE 2 makes creative use of 3D Touch – Apple’s latest interactive feature. For example, when using the Note Repeat feature, 3D Touch adjusts playing dynamics based on how hard users press a pad, mirroring the functionality of MASCHINE hardware. In the same mode, users can also adjust the rate – the harder a user presses a pad, the more rapid the rate is played. Producers can accelerate their workflow further with 3D Touch Quick Actions for entering Step Mode, muting pads, or erasing notes, and even to open up a new project or directly enter the field recording function from the home screen of their iPhone.
iMASCHINE 2 includes the Mixer page, effects, and sample editor from the original software. The Mixer page allows for level balancing of each of the four groups in iMASCHINE 2. The effects section lets users quickly and easily add space, motion, and additional sound shaping to a track with professional effects. A convenient sampling feature allows producers to import music directly from their iTunes music collection, or create their own sample library. Once finished, projects created in iMASCHINE can be exported and opened in the full MASCHINE software for further adjustments and finalization, or uploaded directly to Soundcloud.
Until December 1, 2015, Native Instruments are offering iMASCHINE 2 at a time-limited introductory price of $4.99. For users who have created music with the sounds in iMASCHINE Expansions or those looking to expand their sound palette further, Native Instruments have created the ULTIMATE COLLECTION – a specially priced bundle of 36 iMASCHINE Expansions available for $0.99 untilDecember 1, 2015 – the price of just one iMASCHINE Expansion.
A video featuring producer TK Kayembe creating a track over the course of one day in Los Angeles has been released to demonstrate the new features in iMASCHINE 2.
iMASCHINE 2 is available in the Apple App Store. Until December 1, 2015 it is available for a special introductory price of $4.99. The ULTIMATE COLLECTION is available at the Expansions Store for $0.99 until December 1, 2015.
