Where did the "Native" in "Native Instruments" come from?

This is a very long interview with Stephan Schmitt. It talks about almost everything under the sun, that shows us the humble beginnings of this wildly successful engineer and businessman. 

It is so amazing that he enjoys his work as much as making it a business. At the same time, it is helping to empower the industry with his tools that open up endless possibilities for us musicians today. 

The underlying philosophy behind his synths and tools is the goal to create instruments that are organic and alive, that respond to the musician's performance when played. This is very inspiring both as a composer using the sounds in compositions, or just as a player playing the instruments. 

This makes me see the instruments from NI in a different light, and makes me want to explore them further with different configurations.
