This is a great unit (smaller brother of the maschine). It installs just as easy as the original maschine production center. Very easy to setup and configure. I was a bit worried about the functions crossing over considering the Mikro Maschine doesn't have as much space or buttons as the bigger unit. Native Instruments compensated well those fitting everything in secondary screen options. The manual is easy to understand if you happen to purchase this unit second hand or simply don't enjoy reading the manual you can open youtube and find a lot tutorials there not to mention there are a lot of people online offering free tutorials for mschine so you should be able to catch on pretty fast to the workflow.


The software is very stable, I mean come on when does Native Instruments slack on stability?... Now I've haven't been using this unit very long I'm use to using the main Maschine unit but the Mikro performs just as well, it's just as stable and just as fun to use as the original maschine. One thing I did notice is the pads feel a little bit better which is good. I hope they offer pad upgrades for both units in the future as I like the feel of the akai pads but I love the response of maschines pads... I'd like a mix of both if you get my drift


The only thing I don't like about this unit is that it came out after the original maschine unit.. I feel if they released this at the same time I would have gotten this unit because of the cheaper price but i do understand the business aspect of the release later rather than sooner... This is literally a carbon copy of MASCHINE just smaller. It comes over around 6 gigs of quality sounds (which is great). Another thing I like about this unit is it use the same exact software which means project files are cross compatible no matter what size maschine you are using...
