Native Instruments has announced the release of version 1.6 of Maschine, a free update for the groove production studio.

Maschine 1.6 features support for VST and AU plug-ins. Both the whole range of Komplete Instruments as well as all third-party instruments and effects can now be used directly in Maschine, complementing its integrated sampler and FX features. Due to an "Auto-Mapping" function, plug-in parameters are pre-assigned to the knobs on the Maschine controller, allowing for sound tweaking directly from the hardware.

 

The 1.6 update also includes a free download of the new Komplete Elements instruments and effects collection. Based on the engines of Kontakt, Reaktor and Guitar Rig, it contains 1,000 sounds selected from the Komplete 7 bundle, including Abbey Road vintage drums, Vienna Symphonic Library orchestral sounds, an assortment of sampled band instruments, various Reaktor-based synthesizers, an assortment of amp emulations and effect pedals from Guitar Rig and more.

 

Further enhancements in Maschine 1.6 include an increased number of effect slots, a new "Pad Link" feature, individual swing per sound, clip and sample renaming, expanded Drag & Drop functionality, support for up to 32 audio I/O channels, and Mac OS X 64bit support.

 

The 1.6 update and the Komplete Elements bundle are available as free download for all owners of Maschine.

 

Two Maschine 1.6 demonstration videos featuring techno masterminds Underworld and hip-hop producer Ski-Beatz are available on YouTube here and here.
