Native Instruments has announced the launch of their annual “Happy Holidays” event with the release of TRK-01 Play free kick and bass instrument for Reaktor, a $25.00 voucher, as well as a giveaway where you have a chance to win gear and software.

TRK-01 Play extracts the powerful kick and bass engines from the innovative bass synth TRK-01 to form two dedicated plug-ins. TRK-01 KICK is a blendable dual-layer kick drum engine, with synth-based and sampled kicks, plus multiple modulation options.

TRK-01 BASS offers no less than five synth engines, letting you craft exactly the bass you need. Together, as TRK-01 PLAY, they provide a strong foundation for any track.

TRK-01 Play is available for a limited time only, so grab a copy as soon as possible. Keep in mind that you need an account at Native Instruments (registration is free) and Native Access software installed on your computer (for validation). And most important, the instrument runs within Reaktor, so you’ll be also prompted to install Reaktor 6 Player. To be honest, I will skip their freebie this year, simply because I would have preferred a “stand-alone” plugin. But hey, I am not complaining, it’s free, this is just my preference.

I would not skip their $25 voucher instead – to buy new sounds, instruments, or effects for the holidays. And since you’re on their website, don’t forget to enter the annual Native Instruments giveaway for a chance to win Komplete 12 Ultimate (Collector’s Edition), Komplete Kontrol S9, Maschine Mikro and the new Traktor Kontrol S4.
