In the summer of 1996, Native Instruments released Generator, the groundbreaking modular software synthesizer that was later to become the Reaktor platform and the basis for a wealth of innovative software instruments and effects. Ten years later, NI is about to celebrate its 10th birthday and, with it, an exciting decade of music-software evolution.
The "NI-Versary" celebrations began on July 3 and include a lottery worth more than $18,000 in prizes, as well as a range of special offers that include discounts of up to 66 percent on various NI products.
Until September 10, the following NI-Versary special offers will be available from authorized retailers and in the NI online shop: Absynth 3, priced at $169 instead of $339; FM7, $119 instead of $339; Guitar Combos, $79 instead of $199; and Traktor DJ Studio 3, $119 instead of $279. Update versions of Abysnth 3, Battery 2, B4 II, Guitar Rig 2, Kontakt 2, Reaktor 5 and Traktor DJ Studio 3 will be available at 50 percent off the regular price during the NI-Versary period.
