Native Instruments Releases Free Charity Sound Pack Featuring Samples From Sia, Just Blaze, Junkie XL & More

Production equipment leader Native Instruments has today (July 14) released a free charity sound pack called Community Drive with proceeds benefiting COVID-19 relief.

Available via the Native Instruments website, this sound pack features more than 200 samples, 67 loops, 35 kits and 58 presets from 14 artists including Sia, Just Blaze, Junkie XL, Take a Day Trip (the production trio known for its work with Lil Nas X, Travis Scott and Kid Cudi), Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, DJ Dahi and Peaches. Community Drive is intended to raise money for musicians and give creatives something to pass the time with during quarantine.

“Have fun with it. Be free. Let your imagination run wild,” the guys from Take a Day Trip tell Billboard in regards to how to best use their Community Drive contributions. “These sounds are just a starting point for producers to go on their own musical journeys. We always look at sounds as building blocks, puzzle pieces that can be arranged in any number of different ways depending on mood and inspiration. We want anyone that uses our crew’s sounds to look at them the same way.”

As part of the campaign, Native Instruments has donated $114,000 to seven global charities, including the United States’ MusiCares Covid-19 Relief Fund and Black Trans Femmes in the Arts, The Netherlands’ Musicians Without Borders and the U.K.’s In Place Of War and Heart N Soul.While the sample pack is free, users are encouraged to make donations, with the funds raised going to musicians in urgent economic need due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We hope that music makers everywhere will enjoy creating with fresh sounds from Grammy-winning stars and hip-hop legends, to Hollywood composers and electronic innovators — and we can’t wait to hear the results,” Native Instruments’ Global Marketing Director Constantin Koehncke said in a statement. “Most importantly, we hope that it will inspire some to donate, so that together we can make an impact in supporting musicians everywhere.”
