Happy Holidays: Native Instruments Hypha instrument brings you the sounds of nature


Native Instruments is getting into the spirit of the season by offering you a free plugin. Download it now and it could grow on you.

This year, it is a free ‘acoustic-electric’ hybrid instrument known as Hydra that you can download. Running inside the free Kontakt 7 Player, this comes with 156 “inspired by nature” presets and plenty of sound-sculpting options, including eight effects, randomisation features and a mod wheel-powered performance mode that enables you to generate a chord progression from a single keypress, and Multiple tuning systems are supported.

As a further bonus, both new and existing Native Instruments customers can get a £22/€25 discount e-voucher that can be spent on instruments, effects and expansions at the NI online shop.

Additionally, you can also save 50% on a selection of iZotope products via the iZotope website. Among the plugins on offer are Nectar 3 Plus, VocalSynth 2 and the full range of Elements products, including the Elements Suite.

Finally, you also have the chance to win a prize bundle from NI and its Soundwide siblings iZotope and Plugin Alliance. If you want to get involved, all you have to do is you need to download Hypha, use it to create a new track and then upload it to the competition page at Metapop. NI will select three winning tracks, and if yours is one of them, you’ll take home a prize.

Find out more and download Hypha for PC and Mac on the Native Instruments website. Hypha is free until 16 January.
