NI MASCHINE Groove Production Studio Controller



The Native Instruments Maschine is a True Production Machine

MASCHINE combines the flexibility of computer-based music production with the ease of a groove box into one powerful creative tool. Utilizing onboard samples or your own audio files, MASCHINE’s symbiosis of hardware and software not only ensures a fast and fun workflow, but lets you easily turn your ideas into professional productions.


Features:
  • Controller - The MASCHINE controller intuitively channels your creative impulses into total interaction with the software. The controller offers a very high fun factor with mouse-free operation of the MASCHINE software at every level, from initial spontaneous jams to complete arrangement of your finished tracks.
  • Sequencer - MASCHINE lets you easily create rhythms, bass lines, chords and melodies, and arrange them into complete tracks on the fly.
  • Browser - A sophisticated and easy–to-use tag-based browser gives you instant access to any sound, loop and instrument.
  • Sampler - MASCHINE is based on a high-performance sampler engine, allowing audio recording of internal or external sources and precise sample playback with maximum audio quality.
  • Effects - MASCHINE's built-in effects section contains a powerful arsenal of studio-quality effects to shape and supercharge your sound, including dynamic effects, modulation, distortion, delays, reverbs, filters and EQs.
  • Full Featured Midi Controller - The MASCHINE Controller can not only be used with the MASCHINE software - it is also a powerful universal hardware controller for use with any MIDI-compatible hardware or software.
  • Studio Integration -In contrast to conventional groove boxes, MASCHINE provides seamless integration as a plug-in to your host sequencer. Produce the whole song in MASCHINE or move it to another sequencer for further processing and arranging.
  • Inspiring Sound - MASCHINE comes loaded with over 5 GB of production-ready sounds and patterns. Everything from fat drum kits to state-of-the-art synthesizer sounds and pristine acoustic instruments have been sampled, sliced and tagged for your convenience. MASCHINE also features studio quality effects ranging from dynamics processors to beat-mashers and even mastering tools, all tweakable in real time via the hardware controller.
  • 300 Drum Kits - MASCHINE lets you instantly produce rhythm tracks of any musical style. The heart of the library is made up of the 300 high-quality drum kits, conveniently tagged and sorted into categories such as “Acoustic”, “Analog”, “Digital”, “Urban” and more. Additionally, every drum kit comes with its own set of professionally programmed drum patterns for many modern styles; a valuable resource of inspirational material for further tweaking.
  • 280 Multi-Sampled Instruments - The MASCHINE library includes more then 280 pro-quality multi-sampled instruments. This massive arsenal contains tons of basses and leads, state-of-the-art synthesizer sounds, pristine acoustic instruments and more - all primed to flesh out your tracks even further.
  • 400 Sliced Loops - Over 400 pre-sliced guitar, percussion and synth loops give you a wealth of musical material just waiting to be taken apart and re-arranged. Use these loops to spice up your rhythm tracks, add extra flavor to your beats or as the starting point for your own compositions.
  • 6500 On Shot Samples - The MASCHINE library also provides a sample pool with 6,500 one-shot samples. Use the professionally produced scratches, vocals, effect sounds, single drum and percussion sounds to give your tracks a distinctive sonic signature.
  • 20 Complete Projects - Projects are showcase collections of samples and sequences, programmed by renowned producers and artists. The 20 included projects demonstrate the power and flexibility of MASCHINE and can be used as a springboard for your own ideas.
  • 100 FX Presets / 40 FX Chains - MASCHINE comes with an assortment of over 100 effect presets for instantly adding professional dynamics to any sound or sequence. Additionally, the versatile routing capabilities of MASCHINE allow complex effect combinations that take your sound way beyond the ordinary.
  • Go Deep - MASCHINE's pattern-oriented concept frees you from the limits of linear arrangement. Build song "scenes" by layering patterns, and re-arrange the scenes on the fly. MASCHINE offers external sampling through your computer’s audio interface as well as internal re-sampling, precise editing and slicing, auto-mapping, effects and an ultra-convenient browser – all perfectly attuned to the hardware controller.

          Comments about Native Instruments NI MASCHINE Groove Production Studio Controller:

          Well worth the price! However it did take me a while to actually pick up Maschine because of the price. I was not too sure what to expect but having have the product for a few weeks I am VERY happy with its performance!

          My recommendation is to watch a few YouTube videos to get yourself started. I think within 45 mins I was good to go on my own and really start exploring the box and what it can do.

          The factory sound bank is insane. The Drums are probably one of the greatest features on this box. Though other sounds are too just as great but the drums are insane.

          The FX on the box are a bit limited in my opinion. However I think there are enough to get the job done and I am sure more are on the way. I am also sure there are other sound banks and FX settings you could put into maschine. However I've yet to research this. FX are basic. Reverb, EQ's, Compression, Phaser. Filters. Basically your basic FX you'd find on all Groove Boxs.

          Sampling is easy, straight forward and took a few viewings on Youtube to get the general knowledge and idea of how to use the features. Once I grabbed them I was on a tear, much like everything on this box.

          Software, the main program Maschine uses is also easy to pick up. It can be used to make traditional tracks and also live sets. The scene feature is awesome for live sets and you could easily pack a whole live set in a group of scenes.

          Since getting this box i've banged out 4 solid tunes and have worked on several more.

          Overall I say this is a great bridge from Hardware into Software. Even if you've been using both for sometime, maschine is very easily picked up. Giving you the right amount of time to learn its features but more time actually putting down solid beats.

            Comments about Native Instruments NI MASCHINE Groove Production Studio Controller:

            Great lightweight and compact, but packs a punch in performance. Had some issues when first released about a year ago, but the lastest patch 1.1 fixes those issues and adds some great features. Can be learned and used as a stand alone, or for more versatility can be used with its own DAW. Learning to use is as easy as watching a few youtube videos and playing around with it yourself.

              i own it. and i must say when i first started using it i was wondering why i spent so much on it because it was kind hard to use. i even thought of at one time of taking it back but, after lookin at N.I.'s vidoes it helped me out alot on how to use it. so far the only thing i don't like about it is the cost. that is high for something like that. but, after using it. i really like it. and just be aware though that it may not sample like it says it will under windows vista media center edition. i had to use it on my old pc running. windows xp home edition with sp2. i will try again later on windows vista with media center. what stopped me was this driver called waspi under windows vista w/media center. something like that. i will try again later to see if i can get it to work and i will post it here what i done to get it to work.

                  Yes, you can sync their MIDI clocks, and set either one as the master. The latest version of Traktor 2 offers virtual MIDI support, as does Maschine. Additionally, you can use Maschine in MIDI mode and map it as a controller within Traktor.
