Native Instruments takes groove production to an entirely new level with Maschine Studio and Maschine 2.0! Maschine Studio is a larger, even more powerful control surface for Maschine, featuring a new Edit section with a jog wheel, a Level section, and two high-resolution color display screens. The two screens work together to provide maximum visibility and work flow. For example, when editing samples, one screen shows the entire waveform, while the other displays a zoomed-in view for detailed edits. The screens also make browsing through sounds, instruments, and effects a breeze with product icons available right on the display, on the hardware controller. For ideal viewing, a tilt stand is built into the back of Maschine Studio.
Maschine Studio has more dedicated buttons and indicator LEDs than earlier Maschines, allowing direct and fast access to features and functions, as well as onboard meters and volume control. There are three MIDI outputs and one MIDI input for connecting external gear.
Compatible with Maschine, Maschine Mikro, and Maschine Studio, the new Maschine 2.0 software features an enhanced browser, a dedicated mixer page (with aux sends, unlimited groups, insert effects, and more), and a new, highly efficient 32-bit floating point audio engine that allows higher instrument, effect, and plug-in counts.
Maschine 2.0 includes five new drum synth plug-ins, and a sound library comprising more than eight gigabytes of sounds. Maschine 2.0 also comes with Native Instruments’ Massive synthesizer, Prism mallet and percussion synth, NI’s Solid Bus Comp, Scarbee Mark I vintage electric piano, and more. Maschine 2.0 can run standalone, can host VST or Audio Units plug-ins, or can run as a plug-in itself. It is available in white or black.
