NI debuts THE FINGER for musicians, producers

Native Instruments in collaboration with Tim Exile of Warp Records, has introduced THE FINGER. The keyboard-controlled performance effects processor delivers tools for sound mangling and live remixing, for use in the studio or on a stage. It offers over 40 different effect algorithms, such as real-time samplers, filters and wave shapers, and comes complete with tempo-sync capabilities. THE FINGER enables users to trigger effects via an MDI keyboard, allowing them to activate and combine individual effect algorithms into custom chains of up-to six effect units per-time.

THE FINGER can be used as a standalone with the company's free KORE PLAYER, or as a plug-in with programs such as REAKTOR 5, which allows users to set up custom effects to MDI notes. In addition, by combining THE FINGER with the KORE PLAYER users get eight macro-controls that can be used to provide more sound-tweaking options.

Users can download THE FINGER from NI's online store for $80, with video demos available on both Youtube and the company's website. In correspondence with the release, user can also download Tim Exile's "The Finger EP", a four-track album that can be obtained through a new blog created by Tim Exile called "The Now Wave"
