Product Description

Native Instruments' MASCHINE combines the power and convenience of computer-based production with the hands-on, "instant results" you get from a hardware groove box! MASCHINE lets you use its 5GB of built-in samples or your own files to unleash your creativity in real time! It works as both an instrument and a controller, giving you 16 pads, 11 rotary encoders, and 41 buttons. You can build songs intuitively by layering, sample and re-sample in concert with your computer, and even use the MASCHINE as a plug-in in your computer's sequencer!

Would recommend to anyone looking to add a high quality production tool to their setup.

I'd never played an MPC, never really produced anything... and while I still have a long way to go, Maschine makes it a really fun process.
Rye Clifton
The integration with VST's and Komplete is incredible, and you can use Maschine as a VST inside other DAWs.

This is pretty much the coolest thing ever invented. Does more then stated on the box or the advertising material and is fairly easy to use. At the moment I have this and Traktor (NI's vinyl reproduction software) run through my studio. I create a beat or hook on Maschine upload to Traktor and I have custom vinyl. Seriously, a basic layout could take you 5-10 minutes with Maschine, and a full production could be done in as little as an hour or two (of course that is if you knew exactly what you wanted).

I did a tremendous amount of homework before I bought every piece in my studio and have been doing music (DJ, producing etc..) as a hobby for over twenty years (god I feel old saying that) and this is by far the best purchase I ever made next to my 1200s of course :p

The only "problem" I currently have with Maschine is that recording outside sources doesn't work. I have also never bothered to troubleshoot this, so it might be user error.

This is the piece of gear I have been waiting to find for decades now. It's essentially an MPC (1000, 2000 etc) that connects and integrates directly with your computer (your computer is doing the work, the Maschine interface is just a USB controller that has custom functions for Maschine.) You can run Maschine in Stand Alone mode - which is my preferred method - which allows you to use Maschine as the center of your studio - connect audio ins/outs, samples, external midi gear, effects.. then it's got internal effects, sounds, beats, kits, a SICK sequencer, note repeat and one of the easiest workflows to learn of all music gear on the market. Maschine also runs as a plug-in (for Ableton, Logic, Cubase, etc.) and comes with stock templates to use your Maschine controller as (for instance) an Ableton LIve master controller with transport control, clip control, levels, mutes, etc. (This feature has kept me from craving a launchpad or apc40.)

Maschine comes with an incredible sound library, it's dead simple to make beats, simple to sequence (anything), simple to sample (anything), easy to chop samples (by transients/sensitivity, by time, by tempo and by rhythm (1/6th notes for instance). Its got enough (solid) sounds and effects that you could make an album with nothing but this piece of kit. As of version 1.6 Maschine allows you to use VST plug ins inside the program. With VST integration you can use effects or instruments and they can be applied to individual sounds, to groups, or to the master. Flexibility of routing and the number of VSTs really depends on your computer's power but I haven't had very many crashes. Because your computer runs as the processor your limit of samples and sequences is almost limitless with today's computer hardware.

All I have to say is OMG! It's solid, looks fantastic in the studio and the build is strong. As far production.... Please I found myself banging out beats in 10-15 mins easy!!! The fun in music production is back, and it is here to stay thanks to maschine. Any type of music maschine will hold you down.This in my honest opinion is the MPC killer. Don't get me wrong the mpc is great but it's nothing like the maschine. Maschine provides full integration with any DAW or can be used as a standalone via USB input. Also the drag and drop feature is amazing and simple. You need effects maschine has you covered, you can mix full projects within maschine. If you take music production serious you shouldn't be without maschine.

The first generation Maschine is a fantastic instrument, and a great value with the reduced pricing. I've used it for over 2 years, and it has become the centerpiece of my pre-production studio. Its probably the best thing to happen to music production since the MPC. The controller is compact and lightweight, so its very portable. It fits comfortably in my laptop backpack. Perfect for producers on the go, live performers, DJ's and the like. With regards to the software, its only limitations are your imagination and the processing power of your computer. As far as music making goes, Maschine is really intuitive and does wonders for your workflow. The drum pads are among the best on any MIDI controller, and the hardware syncs perfectly with the software. So much that you may find yourself looking at the computer screen less and less over time, which is key for individuals who prefer working with outboard gear. It comes packed with over 6 gigs of sounds. I can't say enough about it. Would recommend to anyone looking to add a high quality production tool to their setup.

This is a good quality and very flexible controller that comes with good software for creating most forms of music. The latest 1.8 update to the software and firmware adds several useful new functions.. and NI seem committed to improving Maschine on a fairly regular basis. I docked one star simply because the sensitivity and feel of the pads is not quite up there with Akai's equivalents.. but for the price, it's a pretty good piece of equipment overall.
