Berlin, February 25, 2015 – Native Instruments today introduced NEON DRIVE – a new MASCHINE Expansion providing a collection of tailored 80s- inspired sounds for producers working in contemporary pop, electronic, and R&B styles.

NEON DRIVE features a library of sounds drawing heavily on production techniques, instrumentation, and melodic construction native to 80s synth pop.
