DARK PRESSURE brings the sound of tough underground dance music to your MASCHINE or MASCHINE MIKRO.
Huge sub-heavy kicks, chunky toms, sharp hi-hats, crisp percussion, warm bass tones and crystallized lead synth sounds – all processed with analog gear and MASCHINE’s internal FX – provide the building blocks for muscular techno, tech-house, and minimal tracks worthy of the world’s most respected clubs. Created in association with globetrotting DJ/Producer Steve Lawler and leading sound designers from Loopmasters, this Expansion delivers club-ready punch for maximum dancefloor response.
RHYTHM FOR THE CLUB
DARK PRESSURE focuses on percussive one-shot samples and a wealth of exclusive pre-programmed patterns – many created by Steve Lawler himself. Fine-tuned for powerful club sound systems, DARK PRESSURE puts an impressive array of four-on-the-floor rhythms at your fingertips – from full-on energy to hypnotic groove and triplet-driven swing.
This is also the first MASCHINE Expansion to include pre-sliced percussion loops (64) for instant remixing. These loops are a source of inspiration when you’re composing, and a great way to apply some additional layered rhythms to your productions.
ABOUT STEVE LAWLER

His production and DJ style walks a line between upfront sounds for main rooms and tough, percussive underground grooves for dark warehouses. Now, with DARK PRESSURE, the secrets of his crowd-thrilling sets are in your hands.
