- Includes MASCHINE 2.0 software, instruments, and new drum synths
Create and perform rhythms, harmonies, and melodies faster than you ever thought possible. MASCHINE STUDIO’s workflow keeps you laser-focused on the quest for the perfect groove. Its pattern-based sequencer and high-performance sampler, exemplary drum synths, incredible suite of creative effects and pro instruments, and acclaimed sound library deliver ultimate production power.
And MASCHINE STUDIO’s impressive hardware delivers full tactile workflow.
MASCHINE STUDIO redefines hands-on control. Big, high-res color screens show waveforms, patterns, scenes, NI product visuals, and mixer and meter levels in full detail. Multi-color pads provide ultimate feel in the thick of the beat.
Eight display knobs, edit buttons, and a jog wheel with LED indicator provide complete tactile control of MASCHINE’s sequencer, instruments and effects. A dedicated level section delivers clear metering and monitoring. And a built-in stand delivers the perfect performance angle.
Beneath MASCHINE STUDIO’s advanced hardware is all-new software – exploding with cutting-edge technology.
Maschine 2.0 delivers powerful new features to Maschine Studio, and both generations of Maschine, and Maschine Mikro. A tag-based attribute browser makes samples and presets easy to find while the new plug-in strip displays Maschine’s internal plug-ins by their individual user interfaces – a faster, more accessible way to select and process sound. A brand-new mixer page provides detailed level adjustment and flexible routing of Maschine 2.0’s aux sends, plug-ins, and unlimited groups and insert effects. A new audio engine with multi-core technology adds sidechaining and allows higher instrument, effect, and plug-in counts, faster load times, the latest advancements in professional sound quality, and more.
Also new and exclusive to Maschine 2.0 are five drum synth plug-ins capable of a wide range of sounds – from crisp and digital, to warm and analog, featuring accurate acoustic-sounding drums. Delivering a signature sound and a refined level of control, these plug-ins are fully-adjustable and automatable directly from Maschine Studio’s hardware.
Maschine 2.0 comes with an 8+ GB sound library of professional, production-ready sounds and can host any VST or Audio Units plug-in. Also included are full versions of Native Instrument’s Massive synthesizer, the unique synthesizer for percussive and mallet sounds Prism, the powerful compressor Solid Bus Comp, and the meticulously sampled vintage electric piano Scarbee Mark I, providing a versatile setup ready for any production task. Maschine can be used as a standalone on either Mac or PC systems, but also loads as a VST, Audio Units or AAX plug-in in all major DAWs for seamless integration with existing production environments.
