It seems like a live competitor doesn't it?

It looks like an update to Battery.

It looks like a video artist having a lot of fun with Adobe After Effects.

You know what I love.
Teaser videos.They really are great.

I see a teaser video with some close cropped, 3d rendered "stuff" blerps about mysteriously, some 3d waveforms and a bit of lensflare, meanwhile the hip music genre of the day plays in the background.

I assume I am meant to tell all my social media friends "mystery blerp is possibly coming!! At some time soon-ish, possibly"
hell, it surely must be a viral hit. Otherwise what are the marketing dept doing all day in there?

An indeterminate amount of time later a product is released and there's a 1% chance I make any connection at all between the video and BlerpMaster V3 . All these companies may as well be advertising each others projects for all I can keep track of it he correlation between teaser and released product.

They also sent out a vague email last week about some new synth plug-in. I don’t think this is related. I think this means big things for Komplete 9, which is great because they’ve pretty much been milking it with the last 4 or 5 versions with the same plug-ins slightly upgraded and with a ton of presets and sample libraries. They probably determined there were no more presets to be created or sounds to sample with the existing lineup.

I really hope Komplete 9 does something different

it's not a DAW. it's Battery 4.

How'd you find out? Does it have its own sequencer now?

Visually NI is stuck in the wrong decade.
Wonder if they'll ever fix their website.

Aww, I like NI's website. And I'm looking forward to Battery 4, if this is that, so be it. My last Komplete purchase was v6. I could use some new toys, but I still haven't mastered the old ones. I use Guitar Rig 4 in a live and studio setting and can't see needing more. I don't even know what's improved in GR5.

I agree it looks likely to be Battery, or something like that. Releasing a DAW isn't necessary, and most NI fans are even against the idea.

They did. I discovered this when it worked on my iPad. So off to the desktop I went and removed NI from my Flash whitelist, and there it was: A functional site that zoomed properly, and videos with MPEG4 variants[1]!

Switch off your Flash and try it. Of course, the design still sucks a bit, and the forum's quickmenu still pops up at a seemingly random location.

[1]YMMV. I have a browser extension which loads alternatives from YouTube, so MPEG4 and other video formats get priority over Flash. The embedded Flash is just loading a video from some other URL anyway.

I saw this as well. they would be stupid to put out a DAW. I hated the work flow on the MAschine software and I assume their version of a DAW would be similar.

Did anyone see the release for a new synth as well?
