New tracks that DJs should know about.
With its state-of-the-art Traktor DJ products, Maschine groove production systems and Komplete software instruments and effects bundles, Native Instruments has positioned itself as one of the most popular DJ and music production companies in the world.
Founded in Berlin back in 1996, Native Instruments operated out of Germany for six years until 2002 when it launched an office in Los Angeles. Although originally focused on sales, marketing and customer support for the Americas, the location has increasingly become an important part of the company’s global operations. As of today, hardware development for Traktor is handled there, along with iOS development for all of its products.
DJcity visited the office, which is located on Hollywood’s iconic Sunset Boulevard, to see what it’s like working there and what happens behind-the-scenes.
