Imagine having thousands of sounds, dozens of powerful software instruments, a plethora of effects, drum loops and/or DJ gear, all available from your desktop or hardware interface. If you are a composer, DJ, beatmaker, sound designer or electronic musician, you need to be familiar with Native Instruments.

Based in Berlin (the heart of the electro/industrial music movement), Native Instruments provides a huge array of tools for the electronic musician, both software and hardware based. Want the best in software instruments?
