[NAMM] Native Instruments Maschine
Native Instruments announced MASCHINE, a groove production studio that combines an advanced software sequencer and sampler with an integrated performance controller.
MASCHINE is built on a combination of groove box and drum machine workflows. It brings together step sequencing and real-time polyphonic recording.
The 16 pressure-sensitive drum pads have been engineered, along with eight rotary encoders, a layout of dedicated buttons and dual high-resolution displays giving access to all functions of MASCHINE without touching the computer mouse or
keyboard. By design, all features are accessible "on the surface" rather than hidden away in hierarchical sub menus. The MASCHINE hardware also doubles as a universal controller for any MIDI compatible music gear, thanks to an included MIDI mapping application and support of the MCU protocol for sophisticated DAW control.
Pricing & Availability
MASCHINE will be available in March 2009 for a suggested retail price of 599 EURO.
