Hybrid Workstation for Next-gen Music Creation

Native Instruments' Maschine Studio is the next evolution of a breakthrough hybrid music-production platform that makes creating music fast, intuitive, and totally natural. Maschine Studio provides you with the all-hands control you can only get from hardware plus the phenomenal flexibility of a software environment. As the center of your rig, Maschine Studio lends its amazing nonlinear music- making workflow to your favorite virtual instruments, or you can add it to your favorite DAW or hardware rig as you like. Whether you're into electronic music production or live performance, you're going to love working with Native Instruments' Maschine Studio.

The powerful software you need for modern music production

Maschine Studio kicks off Native Instruments' Maschine 2 music-creation software. Sequence virtual instruments, create drum grooves, record samples, slice up loops, and take advantage of all of your favorite plug-in processors and effects all within an incredibly intuitive environment. In addition to a slick new mixer, highlights of Maschine 2 include unlimited groups and insert effects plus sidechaining. A tag-based visual browser and total integration with Native Instruments Komplete are super handy, and as a bonus, Maschine Studio even comes with four amazing Komplete products: Massive, Prism, Scarbee Mark I, and Solid Bus Comp.

Awesome hardware gives you complete 1-to-1 hands-on control

The really cool thing about Maschine Studio is the way the hardware controller integrates with the software environment. It lets you access your whole library of instrument sounds and effects and tweak them with astonishing efficiency. Whether you're step sequencing effects or creating totally original sounds, all of the controls you need are right there at your fingertips. A built-in stand makes this hardware controller ideal for any environment, and thanks to its built-in MIDI interface, Maschine Studio is the natural centerpiece of your synth rig.

Massive music-production power that fits your rig

Native Instruments' Maschine Studio provides you with a powerful toolset you can integrate into your system any way you like. As a freestanding music-production environment, Maschine Studio can act as a host for your VST and AU plug-ins, allowing you to take full advantage of your virtual instrument library and Maschine 2's amazing sequencer. But, you can also run Maschine Studio as a slave to your DAW, by inserting it as you would any other virtual instrument. And with full support for MIDI clock/sync, it's easy to integrate your Maschine Studio setup with your live gear as well.

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.

It took forever to get the VST's installed correctly. Somehow the 32 and 64 bit install paths got inverted with some of the instruments and Reaktor wouldn't work for a while. It's all working now, and I love this thing.


At the price drop price, this is a no-brainer, if you don't have one already, unless you're not into music at all.... :)

This is the most beautiful piece plastic and rubber I've ever seen in my life!

This 5 star rating is contingent on this piece being complete with a built in sound card. No sound card, no good. Sound card and Maschine Studio=best thing ever. Otherwise, back to the drawing board. I will get one at launch IF it has a sound card in it. Please have a sound card, please. I could live off of this and komplete 9 ultimate alone. Maybe a sandwich here or there, but probably not necessary.

No soundcard...So What!

Cory, do you not realize how stupid your review sounds? That is not the mission of Maschine Studio. You would realize that this does not have a sound card by looking at the rear of the unit in one of the 14 provided pictures here on Sweetwater. Google before you post!

Truly Epic

Wow, this is the best paper weight I've ever bought. It has an awesome sound card and audio.
