Native Instruments' MASCHINE combines the power and convenience of computer-based production with the hands-on, "instant results" you get from a hardware groove box! MASCHINE lets you use its 5GB of built-in samples or your own files to unleash your creativity in real time! It works as both an instrument and a controller, giving you 16 pads, 11 rotary encoders, and 41 buttons. You can build songs intuitively by layering, sample and re-sample in concert with your computer, and even use the MASCHINE as a plug-in in your computer's sequencer! Native Instruments MASCHINE Control Surface/Groove Production Hardware and Software at a Glance:
Renaming objects (now clips, scenes and samples can be renamed inside MASCHINE)
Full 64-bit compatibility (incl. VST Mac)
Duplication improvements: Duplicate Scenes along with the pattern events
Mapping improvement when dragging multiple samples (similar to KONTAKT)
Snap events to grid, when moving with mouse
REX 2 import
Unleash your creativity
MASCHINE comes loaded with over 5GB of production-ready sounds and patterns. Everything from fat drum kits to state-of-the-art synthesizer sounds and pristine acoustic instruments have been sampled, sliced and tagged for your convenience. MASCHINE also features studio-quality effects ranging from dynamics
processors to beat-mashers and even mastering tools, all tweakable in real time via the hardware controller.
Build songs easily
MASCHINE's pattern-oriented concept frees you from the limits of linear arrangement. Build song "scenes" by layering patterns, and re-arrange the scenes on the fly. MASCHINE offers external sampling through your computer's audio interface as well as internal re-sampling, precise editing and slicing, auto-mapping, effects and an ultra-convenient browser - all perfectly attuned to the hardware controller.
Instrument and controller
The MASCHINE hardware is both instrument and controller in one. Sixteen illuminated, velocity-sensitive pads form an interface to intuitively make beats, tweak sounds, create patterns and sequence whole songs with the powerful MASCHINE software. Two large, high-resolution displays with eight corresponding rotary encoders, buttons, and transport controls integrate perfectly with the MASCHINE software.
A groove-production Maschine
MASCHINE unifies and vastly improves on familiar groove production workflows. Using the MASCHINE hardware controller you can jam out ideas in a pattern-oriented environment, and use them as the building blocks to create your track within MASCHINE. New samples, loops, effects or arrangements can be added, edited and tweaked in the same intuitive way, utilizing the ultra-convenient hardware interface.
