News Native Instruments Maschine MKII

Loop Sequencer from Native Instruments belonging to the Maschine series

Native Instruments announced that the new generation of its cgroove production studio is now available in stores and at the NI Online Shop.

 As of October 1, 2012, the Maschine range of products have received new updates to hardware and software, the addition of colored Custom Kits and the Maschine Stand, and a free separate download for Massive, available to new and existing Maschine users.

 The new Maschine hardware is now available in a choice of black or white. New backlit multicolored pads provide visual orientation, and the pads have also been updated. Re-designed displays provide a wider viewing angle, and the surface layout has been refined by exchanging the three previously separate controls for volume, tempo and swing with one master push-encoder and 6 new buttons. The buttons now also feature multicolored backlighting and a new click action. 

 

The free Maschine 1.8 software update introduces the new color-coding system to the software. Sounds, groups, patterns and projects can be assigned specific color schemes, which are reflected in the colors of the pads and buttons on the new hardware, providing visual feedback. Furthermore, the new software also includes offline time stretching and pitch shifting capability as well as a range of new effects, including NI’s dynamic mixing effect Transient Master. Workflow changes such as Host Transport Control, Browser Sample Preview Mode, Auto-Write Pinning and more plus a number of new hardware shortcuts are included. These features are available for users of both the first and the new generation of Maschine hardware. 

 

Another new addition to the 1.8 update is the inclusion of NI’s Massive. The full version of the synthesizer is included, adding 1,300 additional sounds to the Maschine library. Anyone updating to the 1.8 software will receive Massive as a separate download after software registration. Previous users of Maschine will receive an email containing serial number and download link. 

 

The more compact Maschine Mikro hardware is now also available in black or white versions, and includes the same multicolored pads and multicolored buttons. Maschine Mikro runs on the same software as the larger Maschine controller, so both existing and new Maschine Mikro owners also get the new features of the 1.8 software. 

 

The new Maschine generation includes optional accessories. Owners can customize their hardware with a choice of Custom Kits – interchangeable faceplates and knobs in five color schemes. The Maschine Custom Kits are compatible with the new Maschine hardware, but not the first generation Maschine or Maschine Mikro. 

 

The second accessory, the Maschine Stand, delivers a new viewing angle and production ergonomics. Designed for both studio and stage use, the stand has an aluminum construction with a black anodized finish. Used on a desktop, the stand provides a non-slip hold thanks to a system of rubber holding pins and rubber feet. The included Mounting Adapter connects the unit to standard snare drum stands, for neat integration into drum setups. The Maschine Stand is compatible with the new black/white hardware or first generation Maschine, but not Maschine Mikro. 

 

The new Maschine generation, including the accessories, is available now from the NI Online Shop and resellers.
