Native Instruments Maschine MK3

The Native Instruments Maschine MK3 is the latest edition of the popular groove production and performance controller. Loaded with new features and technology giving you the creative flow you need in the studio and on stage.  Most notably, the on-board audio interface allows you to connect directly to a mixer via the 2 1/4 TRS outputs, or record via the 1/4″ TRS line inputs. Also included are 2 large full-colour & high-resolution screens. Helping with instrument & patch browsing, VST information, and various session views. Finally, NI have also added a new ‘Smart Strip’. Perfect for strumming notes, pitch bending sounds, performing with FX, and more.

Using the same intuitive 16 pad layout as its predecessor, it’s made easy for both existing Maschine users and new users altogether. Supplied with the powerful Maschine 2 software, Komplete Select VST bundle and 8GB of Maschine Sounds and Effects. Giving you everything you need to plug, play, & produce right out of the box. For users of other DAW software, Maschine 2 software can function as a VST. Allowing you to integrate your grooves and creation with your Maschine MK3 into your favourite production software such as Ableton, Protools and Logic.

Additionally, the Maschine mk3 hardware can be MIDI mapped to any DJ or production software with the ‘controller editor’ software. Including a range of pre-made mappings for fast integration with popular software such as Ableton and Traktor DJ. This ultimate production and performance system is a must-have for any serious producer or live musician wanting to push the boundaries of their sound and improve their work-flow.

BUILT FOR SPEED

MASCHINE lets you effortlessly produce beats, melodies, and harmonies with powerful drum synths, premium sounds, an integrated sampler, and more – cutting-edge software meets intuitive hardware for ultra-smooth workflow.

PLAY TO YOUR OWN BEAT

Native Instruments MASCHINE MK3’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 your sounds precisely where you want them. Then, automate pitch, volume, LFO, or any other parameter step by step for incredibly intricate and musical results in record time.

BROWSE SOUNDS WITHOUT BREAKING THE FLOW

The Maschine MK3’s ultra-fast, tag-based browser gives your creativity no time to slow down. Use MASCHINE’s two full-color display screens plus the 4-directional push encoder to quickly find any project, group, sound, instrument, effect or sample. Then simply load it and go.

SAMPLE, SLICE, PLAY – IN THE STUDIO OR ON THE GO

With a professional-grade, 96kHz / 24-bit built-in audio interface, MASCHINE makes sampling fluid and simple – grab audio, slice it, and shape it. The USB-powered hardware gives you total control, and the hi-res displays let you slice samples with laser precision. Experienced beat heads will love the vintage sampling modes.

KICKSTART NEW IDEAS

Whether you’re a pro or just making your first beat, MASCHINE helps you spark new ideas without disrupting your flow. Automatically generate random new melodies and drum patterns with the Variation Engine. And discover exciting new transitions and builds with morphing between parameter snapshots using Lock.

DISCOVER UNIQUE WAYS TO PERFORM AND PLAY

The Smart Strip opens up unique new ways to perform and play with Maschine. Use it as a pitch wheel to bend and modulate sounds. Add new tactile dimensions to Perform FX, like stutter, echo, and flanger. Or strum samples, sounds, and drums like a guitar to discover new sonic textures.

ROBUST PRODUCTION SOFTWARE

MASCHINE software comes stocked with everything you need to turn your ideas into complete tracks. Whether you’re sketching and arranging your track, or mixing it down and performing, MASCHINE mk3 keeps you moving from one step to the next – without breaking your creative stride.
