PRODUCTION AND PERFORMANCE SYSTEM
Fast, intuitive, and fun way to create and perform tracks and beats
Integrated hardware / software system includes sampler, arranger, mixer, FX, and a built-in audio interface
PLAY TO YOUR OWN BEAT
MASCHINE’s 16 ultra-responsive pads makes it fun and easy to play. In Pad mode, drum in beats or lightly brush sounds on the 16 ultra-responsive pads. Switch to Keyboard mode and play like a piano. And in Step mode, program sounds precisely where you want them, and automate pitch, volume, LFO, or any other parameter step by step for incredibly intricate and musical results in record time.
MASCHINE 2.7 WITH AUDIO PLUG-IN
The highly anticipated Audio plug-in introduces a new era of audio in MASCHINE. Now you can get creative with loops in real-time with MASCHINE’s acclaimed fast workflow. Head to Native Access now to download the free update.
REAL-TIME TIME STRETCHING
Real-time time stretching lets you focus on getting creative fast. Drop in a new loop, and it automatically matches your project’s tempo. Adjust the tempo and it changes in real-time. And now you can audition loops on the fly – listen, load, and swap without ever stopping the music.
PITCH AND CHOP
Gate mode opens up endless creative possibilities for playing loops. “Chop” loops easily by drumming where you want to hear the loop. Hit the pad and the loop plays through. You can also play loops melodically by simply going up and down the scale in Keyboard mode – the pitch shifts where MIDI notes are placed. Drop in a bass loop, play a melody, and instantly make the loop your own.
A monophonic, internal bass synth exclusive to MASCHINE.
MASCHINE 2.6.8 introduces a new monophonic bass synth plug-in. Design and shape rich bass tones with intuitive, fun, and fully-automatable controls directly from the hardware. Morph seamlessly from sine to saw to square – and all spots in between – to create your own unique sound. Or load any of the presets to get bass tones for any genre, including booming sub-bass or dripping acid. Unleash the full power of the bass synth with MASCHINE JAM to program classic acid glides directly from the hardware.
VARIATION ENGINE: RANDOMIZATION AND HUMANIZATION
The new Variation Engine helps add variety and spontaneity to your patterns. Humanize lets you shake off the shackles of quantization and loosen up a drum beat or melody. And Randomize kickstarts new tracks by creating new patterns with random velocities and positions–the perfect tool for spawning new ideas.
LOCK AND MORPH SNAPSHOTS
Whether you want to experiment creatively or just want to add some improvisation during a live performance, Lock has you covered. Simply freeze your current settings, tweak a sound’s characters, change an envelope, open a filter, and when you’re ready, return back to your initial settings at the press of a button, for up to 64 snapshots. And with the new Morph function, MASCHINE blends seamlessly from one snapshot to the next, making it easy to discover new transitions.
New way of doing portables: separate .svm packages
-useful for plugins & so: reduces main exe size that contains only the program, then you can download the plugin package only if you want it!
-ability for me to release a small program update through these separate files, without having to make the whole thing form scratch for each update.
→ More updated portables and less unnecessary size!
This portable release includes:
- main package (~750 Mb): 1 dat file + 3 exe files (Maschine 2 + Controller Editor + MK3 Control Panel)
► you can delete any exe you don't use and rename them as you want. Just don't rename dat file.
► more plugins can be added later by request, or just add them to "\Sandbox\Native Instruments Maschine 2\roaming\modified\@[email protected]\Native Instruments\Maschine 2\" folder and similar, like the installed version, and at next startup the portable will recognize your new files.
► always read release note
