DROP SQUAD Demo Tracks


DROP SQUAD brings the sound of dubstep to MASCHINE and MASCHINE MIKRO with punchy drums, wobbles, synths and the deepest basses via custom MASSIVE presets.


DROP SQUAD brings the sound of bass music culture to MASCHINE, MASCHINE MIKRO, and iMASCHINE. This MASCHINE Expansion takes the best from dubstep, 2-step, grime and post-dubstep and combines it all into one hard-hitting sound pack.

And for the first time in a MASCHINE Expansion, DROP SQUAD comes with custom presets for MASSIVE – the synth that set the standard for deep bass music now included with MASCHINE.


DROP SQUAD comes equipped with 35 Kits including a huge variety of patterns, all designed for maximum impact with hard-hitting drums, low-end wobbles, FX, stabs, sweeps, and the deepest basses. A unique pad layout maps punchy drum sounds on pads 1-8, while pads 9-16 are filled with leads, effects, licks, and bass sounds including presets from the mighty MASSIVE.

10 Special Kits add to the already-impressive array of sonic wizardry in DROP SQUAD. Additional wobbles, drills, tribal percussion, mechanical one-shots, and filthy ’vowel’ sounds round out the arsenal and put the dubstep stamp on this MASCHINE Expansion.


For the first time in a MASCHINE Expansion, custom MASSIVE presets specifically designed for DROP SQUAD are integrated into the Songs, Kits and Patterns, adding powerful synthesis to MASCHINE’s intuitive groove production suite.** MASSIVE’s eight macro controls perfectly integrate with MASCHINE’s eight top row knobs, giving you immediate tactile control of MASSIVE’s key parameters and creative control of your sound.

These dynamic presets have been tweaked by top producers to cover the full spectrum of dubstep basses, leads, chords and atmospheres and can also be used independently of your MASCHINE projects.

**Please note that these presets require the latest versions of MASCHINE and MASSIVE. Please update using the NI Service Center.
