MOTHER BOARD is a modern take on the electro phenomenon that erupted from the debris of Detroit – machine music that conjured dreams of a utopian future. Sampled from vintage machines, this Expansion explores the evolving interface between humans and technology. Beam the iconic sounds back to earth with acid chirps, stop-start rhythms, talkbox vocal chops, and every imaginable flavor of classic electro.

Welcome to the official production competition in relation to the "9 for 99" discount in the Native Instruments store!
Expansions are genre-specific packs that work with a range of Native Instruments products, and can be used in any DAW. Expansions are full of perfect sounds for your genre – from drum kits for BATTERY and MASCHINE, to customizable presets for different synths, like MASSIVE, MONARK, PRISM and more, depending on which one you pick. MASCHINE owners also get exclusive FX chains and editable patterns, plus Drum Synth and Bass Synth presets.
For just one week you can mix and match nine Expansions for €99, and save 75% on kits for MASCHINE and BATTERY plus an array of synth presets. Naturally, we at Metapop saw the opportunity to run a challenge with 99(!) sounds! They've collected some samples and loops from previous Expansion based challenges and combined them in one big pack.
Your task? Create a song over 2 minutes in length using at least 9 of the 99 sounds provided. Then upload your entry and tell which sounds you used. Go wild, and remember all genres and styles are welcome (as are your own sounds, if you own the copyright).
The Metapop Team will listen to all tracks and select the winners based on creativity and sound quality.

"Seul(e)s 2% des producteurs(trices) de musique et 3% des ingénieur(e)s du son figurant dans le Top 100 du Billboard sont des femmes. Girls Make Beats entend accroître durablement la présence des femmes productrices, DJ et ingénieures dans le domaine musical et leur offrir des opportunités concrètes de faire sauter les barrières de cette industrie.
Afin de soutenir cette nouvelle génération et changer la situation actuelle, Native Instruments s'est associé à 13 artistes pionniers(ières) et à l'équipe de Girls Make Beats pour créer un pack de sons caritatif et participatif.
Ce pack est disponible gratuitement, mais nous t'encourageons si tu le peux à faire un don. Native Instruments a offert une contribution de $30 000 pour lancer l’opération et soutenir Girls Make Beats."
