The Native Instruments Maschine MK2 is the newest piece of gear that I own. I just purchased this last week. So far I am in love with it, it works perfect with my current set up. You can use the Maschine to load sounds, change your patterns and automate your parameters. You can also use it through MIDI to control anything else you might want it to control through your DAW. The MK2 comes with some new effects and they sound amazing, I really like the Tube Saturators on the MK2. It is a major upgrade from the first Maschine that came out. Native Instruments also has kits available online that you can purchase for a good price, but they don’t come with the MK2.


SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

The Maschine MK2 comes with Massive VST/Synth (which I already owned before I purchased this) and it comes with Elements. Elements has over 1,000 different sounds that will spark a lot of creativity because all of the sounds are new and unheard. Sometimes when using different programs and plug-ins it seems that most of them will recycle the same set of sounds from time to time especially when those plug-ins come from the same developer. But the Elements sounds are completely different from previous sound banks that Native Instruments have come out with in the past.


OVERALL OPINION

Setting the Native Instruments Maschine MK2 up was not difficult, but it did take a little while for everything to install. Depending on what you use MK2 with will depend on how long it will take to install on your system and be ready to use. The MK2 comes with over 10,000 sounds and sample packs and all of the MIDI features that you need to have like slicing, auto mapping, and step sequencing. The manual will help with anything you have questions with or it can help with installing if you need it. I am happy that I purchased this and I look forward to using it more and more in the near future. You can now even purchase the MK2 in white.
