It’s hard to believe, but it was ten years ago that a tiny Berlin-based company called Native Instruments released its very first product, a modular software synth called Generator, which eventually evolved into the company’s best-selling Reaktor. This laid the foundation for all the innovations to come, from their Kontakt software sampler to the wildly popular Guitar Rig, and now to the revolutionary Kore. To celebrate this landmark event, the company is offering special pricing on four of its products: Absynth (was $299.97, now only $149.97); FM7 (was $299.97, now only $99.97); Traktor DJ Studio 3 (was $249.97, now only $99.97; and finally, Guitar Combos (slashed to an incredible $59.97!).
In addition, NI is holding some high-profile prize drawings and finally, an all-out bash at the company’s headquarters which will feature live performances by some of NI’s top featured artists on September 23rd. The NI-Versary drawings include more than $19,000 worth of prizes, including an Intel Core-Duo-powered laptop, a special NI-Versary issue Gibson Les Paul, an Allen & Heath Xone: 3D DJ Controller, a pair of high-end JBL monitors and an 88-note master keyboard. A special prize drawing includes a VIP weekend trip for two people to Berlin to visit the company offices and join the NI-Versary party at the Watergate Club. Here’s to another ten years of innovation!
