In a bid to help musicians affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, Native Instruments has just launched a new Community Drive sound pack. Funds raised by the donationware – which comes with stems, samples and production kits made in collaboration with 14 top artists and producers – will be split and donated to several music charities.
Community Drive by Native Instruments
The new Community Drive sound pack from Native Instruments contains 268 samples, 67 loops, 35 kits, and 58 presets. These are segmented into 12 Maschine kits, 10 Battery kits, 14 Logic DMD kits, 14 Ableton Live kits, 11 Massive presets, 27 Monark presets, 10 Prism presets, 10 Skanner XT presets, and 74 loops alongside standalone samples.
The sound pack includes samples and presets from several leading industry professionals including Take A Day Trip, Just Blaze, Sia, Richard Devine, Peaches, Kimbra, and Junkie XL.
Donate what you want
The Community Drive sound pack is free to download. However, donations are obviously encouraged, and Native Instruments has pitched in with $100,000 to get the ball rolling. All proceeds from the sound pack will be donated to musician charity funds such as MusiCares, Musicians Without Borders, Heart N Soul, among others.
