WELCOME TO THE MASCHINE
Native Instruments has brought out a new flagship model of its Maschine hardware music production system called Maschine Studio. Physically bigger and (as you’d expect) better than its predecessors, NI promises that Machine Studio redefines hands-on control. Two large, high-resolution colour screens show waveforms, patterns, scenes, NI product visuals – meaning the graphics of included NI software such as the Solid Bus Comp, plus any mixer and meter levels in full detail. A grid of sixteen multi-color pads allow for real-time input of beats. Eight display knobs, edit buttons, and a jog wheel with LED indicator will give complete tactile control of MASCHINE’s sequencer, instruments and effects. A dedicated level section delivers clear metering and monitoring. A built-in stand lets you adjust the performance angle. New software inside, Maschine 2.0 delivers a, tag-based visual browser, unlimited groups and insert effects, side-chaining, and a mixer – all directly accessible from the hardware. MASCHINE 2.0 hosts any VST or AU plug-in and integrates into any studio setup as a plug-in in all major DAWs. The software also has full multi-core support. Maschine Studio comes with an 8GB library. We should see stocks in Australia in early November with local prices to be confirmed soon.
