Native Instruments releases 40’s Very Own Bundle


Native Instruments announced the release of 40’S VERY OWN BUNDLE.  This includes. 40’S VERY OWN KEYS and 40’S VERY OWN DRUMS, the latest additions to their range of KONTAKT Play Series instruments, created in collaboration with hip hop innovator Noah “40” Shebib.  Until May 22nd, you can purchase both 40’s Very Own instruments for $99 or individually for $69 each.  The free Kontakt 6 Player is required or the full version of Kontakt 6.  More details from NI below.  

A go-to instrument for lush pads, bottom-heavy bass, and singing leads, 40’S VERY OWN KEYS covers a huge spectrum of sounds – all of which can be modulated, tweaked, and transformed with a range of custom controls including a dedicated “40” macro that lets users reinterpret his signature “underwater” sound with an easy to use interface.

Meanwhile, 40’S VERY OWN DRUMS delivers high-quality drum sounds, with every kick, clap, and hi hat mixed to perfection and infused with 40’s signature style. From atmospheric and emotional, to crisp and hard-hitting, users can create the iconic drum sounds for which “40” became known. 

40 recorded all the sounds for both instruments using his personal collection of synths, pianos, and a range of drum kits and percussion instruments. All sounds were captured with state-of-the-art microphones, and processed with a wealth of top-level, sought-after outboard effects at 40’s now-legendary SOTA studios in Toronto, Canada.  

In this documentary entitled “Toronto Rising — 40s Very Own”, we present a tour of 40’s home city. We visit his studios past and present, and talk with some of his many collaborators in the Toronto scene, to tell the story of how he and Drake made Canadian rap famous around the world.

40’S VERY OWN KEYS and 40’S VERY OWN DRUMS join a growing Play Series portfolio, which delivers fun, fast, and endlessly tweakable sample-based instruments geared toward quick inspiration and quality results.
