PC Native Instruments Maschine 2 v2.12.0
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.
The new MASCHINE bass synth lets users design and shape rich bass tones with intuitive, fun, and fully-automatable controls directly from the hardware. Users will be able to morph seamlessly from sine to saw to square — and all spots in between – to create their own unique sounds. They can also load presets designed by professional sound designers to get bass tones for any genre, including booming sub-bass or dripping acid. MASCHINE JAM users can also program the signature glides and accents of classic acid directly from the hardware.
The bass synth does not replace popular products like MASSIVE and MONARK. Instead, it decreases the barrier of entry, allowing users with limited knowledge of synthesis to create beautiful bass tones using the workflow they know with the quality that comes with Native Instruments’ acclaimed DSP expertise.
MASCHINE 2 also introduces an isomorphic keyboard mode to easily play harmonies and melodies on the MASCHINE JAM 8×8 grid. In this mode, the notes on the keyboard are only the notes from the scale. Additionally, each chord has its own hand shape – regardless of key – so users don’t need to know musical theory to play with perfect pitch.
Plus, it’s easier to learn and play than on a traditional piano. Users can easily learn the shape for a chord in one key, and use the same shape in another. A chord guide is available as a free, downloadable PDF to help kickstart the learning process.
Polish your tracks to perfection with the mixer window in MASCHINE 2. Tweak volume and panning with ultimate ease. See group and individual track levels clearly on meters complete with peak level indicators. Adjust levels on any group of sounds. And two aux sends per channel let you freely route sounds anywhere in your project.
MASCHINE’s new user interface brings you all this and much more – cutting-edge groove production has never been this easy.
MASCHINE 2’s new plug-in strip gives you a whole new way of seeing your instruments and effects. Each internal instrument and effect now has its own layout for lightning fast visual recognition. This intuitive, visual integration extends to KOMPLETE Instruments and Effects. And beyond that, MASCHINE can handle pretty much any VST, AU or effect plug-in you own.
Browse presets and load any KOMPLETE 12 Instrument or Effect at-a-glance directly from MASCHINE 2’s full-color product icon display. And now, there’s even more to discover. MASCHINE 2 includes KOMPLETE 12 SELECT – a premium selection of 14 KOMPLETE Instruments and Effects. Get a full suite of professional sound right out of the box and control it all from your MASCHINE hardware.
You also get over 2000 more samples, 200 brand-new MASSIVE presets, and over 100 new kits – all in a streamlined browser that makes finding your sound fast and simple. No matter what sound you’re after, MASCHINE is waiting for you.
