40 is the production powerhouse behind some of Drake’s most classic records. Native Instruments sat down with the Grammy-winning producer in his Toronto studio to discuss the various ways he uses Maschine Studio along with Komplete to craft some of these hits.

Studio 300 now has the Maschine Studio hardware/software for use in the lab. Check it out.

Out with good, in with the AWESOME!

We’ve been busy behind the scenes at Studio 300 working to improve your experience in every way possible. And now we are happy to report that we finished updating all of the iMac computers in the lab with new, improved, and upgraded software. Here’s a brief overview:

Upgrades:

  • We installed the (huge!) 2017 update to our entire Adobe Creative Cloud collection including Photoshop, Premiere Pro, After Effects, and more.
  • There are fresh updates to our most popular Mac programs, too, including Keynote, Pages, GarageBand, and, of course, Logic X!

New software:

Stop by Studio 300 and experience these new software updates.

(Note: this upgrade applies only to our iMacs at this time (November 15, 2017). The MacBook Pro laptops are still in the upgrade process. Stay tuned.)
