The Native Instruments Maschine Mikro can be purchased in black or in white. I have the black one and have been using it since right after Thanksgiving. It has a hardware controller that opens up the possibilities for live performances. The response from the pads is very good; I was shocked with how good they felt too. The lighting that comes with this Mikro is perfect for performing. It is like having a full light show at your fingertips and everyone watching will be drawn to your Mikro.


The Mikro Machine has 28 backlit high sensitive color coded pads, all of the pads are velocity and after touch sensitive. There is one knob that is considered to be the master knob that should just about work with all software DAW functions.


The Mikro Machine has a built in sequencer, and works great with NI massive software synth. This system comes with Massive which I was really interested in at the time, so it was a huge bonus that I got the Machine and Massive together. I was also a fan of the original Mashine, and the reason I like this much better is because it is smaller. The manual is easy to understand and setting it up was very easy for me because it was just like setting up my original Native Instruments Machine.
The sound quality and performance quality of the Maschine is well worth the money that it cost. It provides great value for the price and knowing what I know now, I am glad that I purchased it just like I am happy that I purchased the original Maschine when it came out. I do think they white MKI looks better than the black one does though.
