PRESS RELEASE — Berlin, Germany — Native Instruments celebrates the holiday season today with a brand-new free instrument, free e-vouchers for use on NI and iZotope products, and a producer competition featuring big music production prizes from across the Soundwide brands.
Hypha, available for free until January 16, is a brand-new acoustic-electric hybrid instrument designed to ignite creativity for 2023 and beyond. Featuring 156 presets of carefully curated sounds, it offers a wide array of options for further sound-sculpting, including eight effects, multiple tuning systems, randomization options, and a unique mod wheel-based performance mode for turning single keypresses into full chord progressions. Hypha runs in the free Kontakt 7 Player.
New and existing Native Instruments users can also take advantage of a limited-time e-voucher for a $25 discount on a huge range of instruments, effects, and Expansions at the NI online shop. Simultaneously, NI is offering a voucher for 50% off a selection of iZotope products, redeemable at iZotope.com. Plugins on offer include Nectar 3 Plus, VocalSynth 2, and the full range of Elements products, including the Elements Suite.
Finally, three lucky producers will have the chance to win huge prize packages from Native Instruments as well as fellow Soundwide brands iZotope and Plugin Alliance. To enter, users simply need to download Hypha, use it to create a new track, and upload the result to the competition page on metapop.com. The entries will be judged, and the three winning tracks will be selected by NI.
