Our very own Native Instruments Maschine MK2 review is still in full swing and we've got Dave in the Lab putting it through its paces. We'll have the full review completed shortly, but in the meantime Native Instruments is wasting no time adding even more Expansion Packs to its ever-growing library of sounds and kits for producers to play with. The newest release called Drop Squad has 35 kits and 120 patterns which are perfect for the Dubstep genre. Drop Squad will be a free download to users who register or update their Maschine software or it can be purchased for only $60 for existing users. There is also an iMaschine App version for only $1 so you can get your groove on the go. Check out the press release and our own Maschine MK2 unboxing and accessories videos below.
