The MACHINE MK2 USB MIDI controller combines the flexibility of computer-based music production and the hands-on feeling of traditional hardware and enables an incomparably fast workflow.
The new MASCHINE hardware is highly durable, completely portable and has magnetic, easily interchangeable faceplates. The stylish black edition is delivered with a black faceplate and black knobs. With five CUSTOM KIT colour themes available, you can customise the hardware to suit your individual taste. Each kit includes a faceplate and knobs in matching colours. The high-contrast inverted display offers a wide viewing angle so you can see everything perfectly, whether in the studio or on stage, even under difficult lighting conditions.
The controller weighs a little more than before, and the layout of the USB ports and MIDI I/O has been optimised so that there is less risk of accidental unplugging. New rubber feet ensure that the hardware is stable even during the wildest music sessions.
The Native Instruments DAW controller also includes time stretch and pitch-shift capability, so that you can stretch smoothly from one BPM to another, aided by the automatic BPM detection. Or stretch an audio file to a specific length to make it match another, for example, and align the harmonies of your samples.
The response, dynamics and touch sensitivity of the pads have been further refined. You can assign different colours to the pads and buttons, so you can always keep track of all sounds and projects through the software.
You can comfortably load, tweak, play, arrange, and automate all sampler, plug-in and effect parameters with full hands-on control, with direct access to all software functions. You can control and sequence with your external studio equipment, or control other music software in MIDI mode. Once your track is ready, just drag and drop the patterns directly into your DAW to finalise and mix your production.
The MACHINE MK2 is delivered with more than 11 GB of professional and inspiring sounds. What's more, MACHINE-users will receive a full version of the legendary synthesizer MASSIVE with 1'300 sounds.
