An Even More Portable and Affordable Maschine!

The Native Instruments Maschine Mikro music creation system lets you experience the incredible world of NI's Maschine in a more portable and affordable format than ever before. If you're completely new to Native Instruments' Maschine environment, prepare to be blown away. This unique combination of extremely powerful yet easy-to-use software and a dedicated hardware controller lets you create music in an totally fluid and natural way. From advanced groove sequencing to powerful sampling and remixing, Maschine Mikro does it all. And when you master the versatile compact hardware controller, Maschine Mikro makes music creation absolutely effortless.

Unbelievably flexible music-creation software environment

Looping, slicing, step sequencing, MPC-style recording, scene sequencing - it's all possible with Native Instruments' Maschine environment! Run Maschine as a plug-in in your favorite DAW, or run it in standalone mode and use it to host your favorite VST and AU plug-ins. What's more, Maschine Mikro comes loaded with the same amazing content library that comes with Maschine. We're talking about amazing effects, samples, and four killer Native Instruments Komplete titles, plusNIS sound format browsing, for total integration with Komplete 8 and beyond.

Powerful hands-on hardware controller

Maschine's claim to fame extends beyond its powerhouse sampling and sequencing software. Tight hardware integration makes using Maschine an incredible tactile experience. Maschine Mikro gives you much of this same hardware integration as Maschine, but in a smaller, more streamlined format. What's great is that Native Instruments gave Maschine Mikro a complete set of navigation and function controls, as well as a full-sized set of velocity-sensitive, color-coded pads, so even though it's smaller than the original Maschine controller, you still get an amazing hands-on experience.

The ever-evolving world of Maschine

Whether they're software-based or standalone hardware, most music creation systems remain largely unchanged oncer they've been released — but not Maschine! Since the launch of Maschine, Native Instruments has released several major upgrades, including advanced sampling functions, VST and AU plug-in hosting, and NIS sound format browsing. With the jump to Machine 2.x, you get even more production power than ever before, including multicore support, effects sidechaining, a DAW-style mixer, and much more.

Includes Komplete Select software bundle

Maschine controllers include Komplete Select — a premium instrument and effect package worth $1,000 when purchased separately. Includes Massive, Prism, Monark, Retro Machines, The Gentleman, Vintage Organs, Scarbee Mark I, West Africa, Drumlab, and Solid Bus Comp. Komplete Select is provided as a download after hardware registration.

Ableton Link integration for reliable synchronization

As of Maschine 2.5.5, you can experience the collaborative freedom of Ableton Link. Lock multiple systems to a common timeline. Change tempo globally across systems. Enjoy spontaneous jamming, collaborative creation, and synchronized performances. This is a free update for Maschine 2.x owners.

Excellent beat machine

Bought this unit to start creating beats for some of my clients, and wow what a great unit. Very simplistic and easy to use. If your creating beats or arranging drum patterns this is the unit to buy..

The Native Instruments Maschine Mikro - White

This was an interesting item, I bought this for my Music Inspired 15 gr old son. I had purchased the Beat machine the year before, and now.he is fully equipped for creating more music. I have recommended Sweetwater to many friends already. Thanks again and I will be purchasing real soon for other items.

Small but not limiting

This tiny controller is not only a beast to play live but also amazing to produce. Now with the new maschine 2.0 software this little guy really packs a punch. From the versatile pads to the replaceable encoder, i really love this little beast.

Just what the Doctor ordered

I always loved computer based drum machines but hated using a mouse to control the software. The Maschine has solved that problem. I can build a drum kit, add effects, record a drum track, edit the track and even chop or export it all right from the controller. Maschine also comes with a ton of great sounding very useful samples & instruments. With the controller editor software I can use Maschine to trigger other samplers like Battery ,Addictive drums, EZ Drummer right in my Cubase DAW software. You can even set it up to control Cubase. Maschine fit right into my studio without a hiccup. This one is a winner.

One thing that worries me about getting new gear is the ability the ability to integrate into my existing system. When I took it out of the box and hooked it up, it SEEMLESSLY communicated with my DAW (Live). NO PROBLEMS!!!
