Installing Mac Lion is no problem, the software is stable, both as standalone plugin.
The manual can be downloaded on the website of Native Instruments and is relatively complete.


On my Macbook pro in 2011, no major problems.


I use Maschine in recent months.
I've never been interested in the MPC, although having tried, I found these relatively powerful machines.
Maschine is pretty nice to produce grooves like a MPC.
But where it all goes bad ... Integration is another sequencer.
It is quickly lost, as if we had a sequencer inside another sequencer ...
Opt-so the standalone and export your grooves directly into a sequencer in the future.

As for the controller, it is of outstanding quality!
Both the precision of his pads (better than Akai MPD from home), by his ingenuity to do without fully looking at the screen. A very good point!

If you are looking to make a mobile station (with a macbook for example), I do not think Maschine is for you ... the controller is still relatively bulky ... anything for the live, it would quite the case.

Look also at the side of MOTU BPM ... or the new Gheist of Fxpansion ... If you find a software for creating drum controller without ... or if you have the chance to have Ultrabeat in Logic ... you will more than spoiled;)
