Here it is, next-generation design, multi-colored pads, timestretching capabilities, and more!

All in all, the MASCHINE from Native Instruments is the same highly gratifying instrument that its always been, combining pattern-based sequencing, professional sampling, multi-effect units, and a VST/AU plug-in host, but now with even more style and functionality. Everything is intuitively controllable via the fully integrated hardware - once you touch the tactile controller the fun and intuitive workflow takes over, allowing you to stay focused on what matters - the music.

This next generation of MASCHINE has numerous enhanced workflow improvements for an even more intuitive and faster performance. Now with heightened sensitivity, each one of the 16 touch-pads can be assigned a different color to easily separate and identify sounds, patterns, groups, and scenes. With the New MASCHINE you can timestretch and pitch shift your samples directly from the hardware, eliminating the need to jump back and forth from host systems. The hardware design has changed a bit; one notable addition is the new master push encoder with grid, and the 47 all-new click-buttons that help to speed up the workflow. The displays have been updated also; the new high contrast displays have a higher viewing angle that will help keep things visible, even with some difficult live performance placements. More hardware and less software, the New MASCHINE allows for Host Transport Control, meaning that the hardwares transport controls can be used to control the host DAW when the unit is being used as a VST, Audio Unit or RTAS plug-in. There are also some new effects such as Transient Master, Tape and Tube Saturators that will further help to sculpt performances, and a full version of the MASSIVE synthesizer is included with 1,300 earth-shattering sounds to play with.

STUDIO POWERHOUSE
The New MASCHINE integrates easily into your computer-based studio setup. Use the hardware controller to find, load, and play sounds, automate parameters, and arrange patterns on the fly. Combine this with the ability to control and sequence all of your external hardware instruments, or switch to MIDI mode to control other software.

After quickly and intuitively developing your ideas, drag and drop your patterns as MIDI or audio files directly into your DAW to finalize and mix your production. Youll soon realize The New MASCHINE is a powerhouse capable of revolutionizing the way you make music.

CREATIVE PERFORMANCE TOOL
The New MASCHINE is fast becoming the ultimate performance tool for creative musicians. The New MASCHINE controller is super-sturdy, yet easily portable. The highly responsive pads now have heightend sensitivity and can easily be assigned different colors to keep your kits organize. The new Master Push Encoder and endless rotary knobs are addictively playable, while the two improved high-resolution backlit displays keep you informed of what's going on - perfect for any club or stage.

Use the New MASCHINE as an instrument for performing your own tracks, or sync it with other gear like TRAKTOR PRO 2 (sold separately) to add more dynamics to your live set.

SUPREME SOUNDS MODE
The New MASCHINE comes with over 6GB of ready-to-use, professional and inspiring sounds. Create rhythms and melodies right away with the included drum kits, one-shot samples, basses, synths, and acoustic instruments - all fully tagged for easy browsing. It also includes KOMPLETE ELEMENTS, providing more than 1,000 stunning sounds drawn from the flagship KOMPLETE 7, and a full version of the MASSIVE synthesizer with 1,300 earth-shattering sounds used widely in all styles of music today. And now, you can add extra fuel to your New MASCHINE with the new range of MASCHINE EXPANSIONS - premium sample kits created by renowned sound designers and artists.

A little bit of a learning curve but so worth it! I am about a week into using Machine and I have to say my work flow has improved on this little bad boy x2 every new beat I make. Its amazing just how much you can do with this piece of Hardware and Maschine Software. I am an Ableton user and these two just make sense. I actually owned the Push 2 for a month and hated it. The software was glitchy and slow and its killed my work flow. Guys and Gals do yourself the favour and invest in this. You won't be disappointed, worth every penny!

As a novice musician I can hardly believe what I'm able to do with the Maschine MK2. It has taken me a couple weeks to get my head wrapped around how it all works - the scenes / patterns / etc. but now I'm having fun with it. Superb quality. The software install was flawless and was able to take advantage of several free NI downloads once registered. Well worth the investment.

Picked this up over an mpc1000 and im happy, if you research you can easily find out whether maschine or mpc is right for you. Maschine is better in my opinion but it all comes down to personal preferences. Sure, you cant use maschine without your laptop or pc but if you have a small laptop this thing is a blast with way more sounds than any mpc. You sacrifice the mpc stand alone feature for a host of other features and better power when you make your pc the hardware and daw that drives the controller. The build quality is also very good i just find one of my knobs on the unit spins easier than others but it is very minor, they also made the usb in about a half an inch which is very very nice so the usb port doesnt get worn or bent from the cable being pulled or moved excessively. Its not the 90s anymore pick up a Maschine mk2 you will not regret it!

I pondered this for a while and finally got it when I saw a sale. After getting it, I can't believe how much time I had wasted before with controllers & software that mostly work, but not ideally. From the moment you fire this up, it interacts flawlessly between CPU and control pad. The options to customize your samples and manipulate your sounds is nearly endless, and you can find loads of "how to"s on YouTube. If electronic music is what you want to do, stop wondering and spend your time working on this platform.

The library that is included with Maschine is so big that you will never use the same thing twice! The hardware works so well with the software, I never want to use my DAW unless I absolutely have to! A++ to NI for their great hardware, software and support team.

If you own NI Komplete 8 it works great in Maschine. Make sure that all your Komplete 8 instruments run first in standalone mode. Maschine works in most DAW's. Maschine also comes with Komplete elements but when Maschine runs for the first time in standalone mode it takes awhile for it to scan everything in from Komplete elements but after that Maschine loads ok. Maschine also come with a generous library of sounds to get you started and there are a lot of users out there with Very Interesting Packages and customizable kits I highly recommend this product. Maschine is a little on the pricey side butwell worth it
