Native Instruments Maschine MK2 is a step sequencer, drum machine, synth, multiFX and controller all rolled into one! The dedicated Hardware/Software combination makes Maschine the perfect workflow to access 18,000 samples amounting to over 6GB of loops, one shots and drum kits with 388 samples instruments and 1400 pre defined ryhthmn patterns!
That's a lot to take in in numbers but just put it this way: everything you need to make music right out of the box! So whether you chose to run Maschine standalone or as a VST in your favourite Daw (be it Logic, Pro Tools, Ableton etc etc) you get digital music with hands on tactile performance!
Native Instruments have emerged as one of the leaders in the Digital DJ market and especially for those that love to make music using a laptop but with the tactile control of real punch buttons and knobs. So if you're into making music on the fly but don't want to look like you're just playing itunes and checking your emails on stage the Maschine MK2 is for you!
The 16 backlit punch-buttons can be customized to enhance performance visually as well as keeping things nice and clear: make all your kick sounds red and snare sounds blue for instance and play live with confidence! The dual LCD screens keep you aware of the function and position of the 8 knobs and the multitude of extra buttons are clearly laid out to help you control the Maschine digital Djing and music making software.
