Video: Jamie Lidell and the Qkids on iMaschine 1.1 for iPad

Native Instruments is launching a new 1.1 version of iMaschine that’s iPad-compatible – meaning that finally you can get two hands on the app and really get properly drumming. The new version is a free update for current users or $4.99 for new users. In addition to being ready for iPad, it rocks a new set of sounds from the Quantum Collection – choice selections¬†from the Maschine 2 library. You can also sample iTunes songs, editing their start and end points to pull any music that’s already on your iOS device.

To celebrate, shot a video featuring Jamie Lidell and dance performance group the Qkidz that’s fun and a good example of how rough ideas can quickly be turned into a decent track in the app:

Aside from that fun video, NI’s press department also sent over a bunch of pretty normal press release photos ¬†for the launch of the new iMaschine – but I couldn’t resist adding this one to this article:

Literally sampling an ass.
