Native Instruments Play Series: Stacks v1.0.0 (KONTAKT)
DOWN IN THE CRATES
Crates of wax, dusty sleeves, and sampled beats: STACKS packs the building blocks of 2000s-era, sample-heavy hip hop into a Play Series instrument full of leads, strings, horns, bass, and sounds influenced by crate digging dedication.
Dive deep into the same sounds you’d hear on old-school gems – electric keys, organs, glocks, strings, horns, live bass, and beyond – resampled and processed using tape decks and hardware until they hit the spot. Think collages of funk fused with lo-fi soul, pop lines, and organic left-field bass built for the art of beatmaking.
