Berlin, July 15, 2021 – Native Instruments today released GLAZE – a specialized instrument for bringing glossy vocal flavors to pop, hip hop, R&B, and beyond.

Originally developed for working and harmonising with vocalists in the studio, the first version of GLAZE became a secret tool in Curtis “Sauce” Wilson and Rochad Holiday’s production workflow.

Following an early career as members of the late-90s R&B trio Something for the People, the LA-based engineers have worked on productions for Brandy, Ne-Yo, Will Smith, Keith Sweat, Ariana Grande, and Celine Dion among many others.

The duo teamed up with Native to develop the new Play Series offering after reaction from a tight-knit circle of producers and engineers encouraged them to make the instrument something everybody could use in their productions.

“I think we all realized this could be something special,” Holiday said, “more than something in our personal arsenal, we could take this and make something really special for the public.”
