    The lo-fi sound, no one does it better than the good people over at MSX Audio!

    The lo-fi takeover is here. With fuzzy chords, cozy keys, dusty drums, and pastel textures, FADED REELS comes packed with all the sounds you need to create the perfect vibe. Recorded using a mix of live instruments, classic hardware and boutique outboard FX, all sounds have been resampled to tape or hardware samplers for maximum warmth and soul.

    Hi,
    why is there no option to buy lo-fi glow in iMaschine 2 ? I only see faded reels. Shouldn’t it also be an option to get both in iMaschine 2 ?

    Kind regards

    because Lo-Fi Glow is a Kontakt-Instrument and not a Maschine-Expansion

    I just got the pair, and every instrument in Lo-fil glow is loading panned hard left with no way to fix. The preview plays in stereo, and every other instrument is fine. It does this even if I try loading in on a new group. Every instrument. Anyone know what is going on?

    Not experiencing that here... does it happen in a new blank Maschine project (or Kontakt standalone)? Panning is normal in both scenarios for me (Kontakt 6.2.2 and Maschine 2.9.2).

    Hello Michael,

    I am not seeing this behavior. If you open the Kontakt window in Maschine 2, do the level meters show that the signal is playing through the left side only?

    Could you describe what you mean by GUI? Is the icon just not showing in the Groups section of the interface or what?

    Haven't had issues, this is probably the most 'up my alley' expansion that's been released! Great stuff

    Agreed! The guys at MSXII really know how to create some inspiring sounds. Would love to see more stuff in this vein.

    Please help, unable to use purchased product. I'm only able to preview faded reels in maschine library and lo-fi glow doesn't show up in my expansions or sounds in kontakt. I've attached some screenshots that may help below.
    Any advice?

    Hello RBL,

    Faded Reels and Lo-Fi Glow require Kontakt 6.2.0 or later. If you're still on macOS 10.11, 6.0.4 is the latest version you can install. Kontakt 6.1 and newer require macOS 10.12 or later.

    Thanks for the reply Chris. I had to downgrade back to 2.7.6 in December because my maschine hardware wasn't running with my software. Will upgrading to macOS 10.12 effect my ability to use maschine 2.7.6?

    Maschine 2.7.6 should run just fine on 10.12

    I'm looking at the For the Birds project. I can't figure out how they setup the ClosedHH LoSuave hihat to change it's attack randomly.

    The attack is the same for each hit, but have a look at the LFO of the sampler, it's set to modulate the pitch, that's why each hit sounds different
