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!

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.

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.

I am unable to use the maschine I purchased because the seller sold me one where it's previous used failed to deactivate their maschine account .therefore I cannot activate the disk it came with and use the program. Native instruments will not help assist me in anyway I called several times and left emails. I have had it for 5 months or so and it is a paperweight I can use it in other programs as a midi controller but that's it. Make sure you contact the seller and confirm the program is deactivated from the previous user before purchasing

My AKAI MPD32 was immediately replaced as my main MIDI pad controller as soon as the Maschine was connected for the first time. The software is intuitive and can run as a VST plugin in any other DAW software that I have tried. I was a die hard FL Studio user for years, but very much prefer the features and workflows offered by Maschine. I have my AKAI MPD32 connected via MIDI for convenient 'keyboard' mode of any individual pad.

The unit is very durable and weighs next to nothing. When going to parites etc, I throw my Macbook Pro, Maschine, and Komplete Audio 6 interface in a laptop bag and I have an entire studio that can be plugged into anything that plays sound. Interops seamlessly with all other Native Instruments products, and is a blast to use with the Traktor S4 for 'on the fly' live performances.

Comes with a ton of great sounds and samples, will sample from any external source when paired with a good audio interface, and expansion packs are cheap ($49). Youtube has countless tutorial videos to get the most out of it, I'd recommend checking them out if contemplating purchasing this. The Maschine Studio has since come out, but this unit serves every purpose that I need, so I am sticking with it.

Whether new to production or an experienced user (MPC, etc.), you should definitely give the Maschine a shot. You will undoubtedly be not only impressed, but addicted immediately. Highly recommended by someone who has used every 'workstation' out there for well over 15 years.

Fair warning: I could not seem to get this to work with any of my Windows laptops (XP, Windows 7, Windows 8 & 8.1) without latency after 10 minutes or so of use. It does work just fine with all of these OS's on my desktop machines.
