Berlin, January 12th, 2010 – Native Instruments today introduced MASSIVE THREAT, a new KORE-powered instrument that specifically caters to cutting-edge electronic music styles. For use with KORE 2 and the free KORE PLAYER as well as with the original MASSIVE synthesizer, MASSIVE THREAT offers a wide palette of intense futuristic basses, leads, soundscapes and dynamic sequences that can tear through a mix and fill a club with immense energy.

MASSIVE THREAT was created by MASSIVE’s original designer, one of Native Instruments’ most accomplished synthesis and sound design experts. Through sophisticated usage of MASSIVE’s advanced sound shaping features, MASSIVE THREAT provides an inspirational arsenal of previously unheard digital tones and textures, evoking dystopian vibes that are perfectly suited for Dubstep and similar dark sound aesthetics.

MASSIVE THREAT provides 200 KoreSounds with eight morphable Sound Variations each, resulting in 1,600 individual sounds. Concise parameter assignments allow for immediate, intuitive sound tweaking in KORE 2 and KORE PLAYER. Full musical metadata for all presets also makes MASSIVE THREAT integrate seamlessly with any individual collection of KORE-Powered instruments.

MASSIVE THREAT is available for download purchase in the NI Online Shop for $59 / 49 EUR.
