From Our Research Team:
Hardware and Software Groove Production in One PackageNative Instruments' Maschine combines the power and convenience of computer-based production with the hands-on, "instant results" you get from a hardware groove box! Now loaded with over 6GB of killer sample content, plus a full version of Native Instruments' Massive virtual synthesizer, Maschine lets you unleash your creativity like never before! It works as both an instrument and a controller, giving you 16 multi-color pads, 9 rotary encoders, and 47 buttons. You can build songs intuitively by layering, sample and re-sample in concert with your computer, and thanks to all new workflow and DAW integration, Maschine is the ultimate groove production plug-in too!
Native Instruments Maschine Groove Production Hardware/Software at a Glance:
A smart combination of hardware and software groove production
The Maschine hardware is both an instrument and a controller in one. Sixteen color-coded, velocity-sensitive pads let you 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. Advanced AU and VST plug-in hosting capabilities give you unheard-of music-making power, and an integrated NIS sound browser provides complete integration with Komplete 8. With this advanced categorical browser, you can find the perfect sound in seconds - even if you have the entire Komplete 8 Ultimate library loaded.
Over 6GB of production-ready drums, instruments, and loops
Maschine comes loaded with over over 6GB of production-ready sounds and patterns. You get fat drum kits and state-of-the-art synthesizer sounds, including vintage MPC 60 kits and classic synth samples from the Moog Voyager, Korg MS 20, and Juno 60. You also get pristine acoustic instrument loops that have been sliced and tagged for your convenience. Maschine features studio-quality effects too, ranging from dynamics processors to beat-mashers, plus mastering tools and a Grain Stretch effect. And all of these effects are 100% tweakable in real time via the hardware controller.
Easy song creation, remixing, and performance capabilities
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. There are 10 new destructive sample editing tools that let you go beyond groove arrangement, turning Maschine into a full sample editing workstation as well as groove production tool. And the powerful slicing tools let Maschine do everything classic groove production samplers could do and much, much more!

A Maschine Believer

Now for the review: This is a slight step up... read more [+] from the MK1 that I sold to get the new MK2 unit. White is nice if nothing else different however mine had some manufacturer blemishes of which "Team Awesome" were kind enough to replace. Performance: it does feel more responsive than the previous generation; the color coding helps with organization and performance with Ableton Live. I actually like the large multi-knob. Build: feels more substantial than the MK1; the custom plates are nice for a cosmetic touch. Software: a big improvement since v. 1.2, still some work to be done but you can definitely get your ideas out. The library can be a pain in the arse, it just need a little finesse with mapping. For VSTs you can go wrong pairing up with Komplete. By the way, use the voucher and get yourself an expansion pack.
All in all, I'm very satisfied. I've been practicing more often as I treat it like playing a game of Simon (if anyone remembers the kid game). If you're on the fence. One suggestion, get yourself a small factor midi keyboard such as Arturia's MiniLab which will be me next purchase.
-Thanks again Sweetwater & "Team Awesome" close [-]
What a power house!!!
by Deucedore from Harrodsburg, KYI love synths and musical "toys" if you will, and this is like all of it rolled into one big happy interface. Easy to use after a short while of "whats this do?" and very easy setup. Midi out for keys... read more [+] is great and the pads feel amazing. I havent had it for too long but for the short while I have I must say Im blown away. WARNING: You WILL want to buy software for it once you acclimate yourself to it so get ready to drop some cash on this virtual addiction. Lastly if you have an iPhone, the iMaschine is 4.99 and is a %$#&ing powerhouse of an app that also works seamlessly with Maschine. close [-]

Changed My Workflow for the good!
by Brian from New York, NYI am late on the Maschine bandwagon but I am so glad I waited this long and got the Mk2. I wanted to use the unit for a month before I wrote the review to give it an full go.

To be honest,... read more [+] getting used to the workflow took a minute, but after thorough investigation of the manual, online videos and set-up guides for both Logic and Ableton Live, I have to say it's working better than I ever imagined.
Being a former studio engineer, I was forced to work with the MPC line for many years. This blows the MPC away as far as ease of use and getting something useful in minutes. The color pads are bright and very responsive to even the slightest touch. I don't miss having to look at my laptop constantly to see what's going on in a session. (Almost) every feature is available via the controller eliminating the computer screen. It is annoying that I have to use my laptop as a dongle now, but, Ce La Vie.
Integration with my DAWs is seamless and painless. One word on Ableton Live on Mac - your CPU will jump up to 70-80% (a known issue). The seamless integration with all NI products is also a HUGE plus and having every parameter available on the screen is fantastic. I literally have not opened an NI GUI in weeks!
Don't forget that this is also an amazing MIDI controller on it's own too and comes with templates for popular DAWs and Plugins. Again, great integration.
I can literally go on for days... Get it. You won't be disappointed! close [-]
