REVIEW

NI's Maschine MK2 is finally here! The integrated software/hardware system that combines hands-on control with computer-based music production has revolutionized music production & performance and is now updated with several major improvements. First off, the entire unit has received a facelift with new, illuminated multicolor pads and two new back-lit, high-contrast displays that work with the software for an ultra-fast and intuitive workflow. Next, NI has updated the Maschine software (to version 1.8) and now includes the legendary MASSIVE synth for all Maschine users, as well as numerous time-saving workflow improvements to help you get the most out of your production and performance. In addition to these updates, Maschine MK2 still works as an all-in-one pattern-based sequencer, professional sampler, multi-effect unit and USB/MIDI software plug-in controller. It is basically all you need to create and perform original productions - use it with a computer to control and host your plug-ins via USB 2.0 or use it to control and sequence external synths and hardware gear via MIDI - either way the workflow is smooth, flexible and intuitive.

The robust Maschine MK2 package not only includes MASSIVE, but also includes over 6GB of ready to use samples, loops, and sounds, and over 3GB of sounds from KOMPLETE ELEMENTS, a selection of carefully compiled drums, beats, strings, and synths taken from NI KOMPLETE. All this in a highly portable unit that is fully customizable and expandable (Maschine custom kits, stand, and Expansion software sold separately).
