OVERVIEW

Same compact size, jammed packed with even more upgrades and the latest Maschine 2.2 software.

MASCHINE MIKRO from Native Instruments is the perfect entry into the world of MASCHINE, giving you tactile, hands-on control for beat production, sampling and performance. This latest version of the MASCHINE MIKRO has plenty to boast about, now with improved sensitivity, each one of the touch-sensitive pads can be assigned a separate color to easily identify different sounds, patterns, groups and scenes. Speeding up workflow and helping organize kits and projects. Additional improvements include the ability to timestretch and pitch-shift samples directly from the hardware, eliminating any need to jump back and forth from host systems.

MASCHINE MIKRO also allows for Host Transport Control, so the hardware’s transport controls can be used to control the host DAW when the unit is being used as a VST, Audio Unit or RTAS plug-in, which means more time on the hardware and less time jumping back to your computer to work. Also, MASCHINE MIKRO now has the same Auto-Write function as its big brother, so you can easily record parameter automation right from the hardware. As if those weren’t enough upgrades, there are some new effects such as Transient Master, Tape and Tube Saturators that will help further sculpt performances, and a full version of the MASSIVE synthesizer is included with 1,300 earth-shattering sounds to play with.

MASCHINE MIKRO is a professional music production tool, combining the flexibility of software with the immediacy of hardware. Create rhythms, bass lines, chords and melodies, and build tracks on the fly with the intuitive, clip-based sequencer. The New MASCHINE MIKRO also gives you a high-performance sampler, professional effects and full support for VST and Audio Units plug-ins. What’s more; you can also run MASCHINE MIKRO as a plug-in in your DAW.

More than 6 GB of production-ready samples, patterns, and effects for all styles, with drums and basses plus dynamic synth and instrument sounds, many created by renowned artists and producers, and a range of dynamic studio-quality effects are included. Select sounds using The New MASCHINE MIKRO’s super-simple browser and start playing immediately. And if you need even more, get an extra boost for your library with MASCHINE EXPANSION packs.

MASCHINE MIKRO gives you direct access to your favorite Native Instruments or 3rd party VST or Audio Units plug-ins, to further expand your instrument and effect arsenal. Start your collection with the free copy of KOMPLETE ELEMENTS, with over 1,000 stunning sounds, all seamlessly integrated and easy to browse in MASCHINE MIKRO.

If you are a user of iMASCHINE, NI’s on-the-go beat sketchpad for the iPhone and iPod Touch, you can import your iMASCHINE projects to MASCHINE MIKRO to finish your ideas in your home studio.

MASCHINE 2.2 SOFTWARE INCLUDED
MASCHINE 2.2 features a host of new power features including perfect integration with KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series keyboards. Current MASCHINE 2 software owners can update free. Owners of MASCHINE 1.x who register KOMPLETE 10, KOMPLETE 10 ULTIMATE or a KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series also get a free MASCHINE 2.2 download. Your workflow is about to get even smoother...

MASCHINE 2.2 Software updates include:

TOUCH-SENSITIVE KNOBS
MASCHINE 2.2 unlocks MASCHINE STUDIO’s touch-sensitive knobs. For example, when browsing, touching a knob automatically takes you to the tag cloud on the hardware display. Depending on which control knob you touch, you’ll see all available options and functions in a pop-up list. For instance, routing options for sounds and groups. Absolutely no menu diving – a turbocharged workflow.

SCALES AND CHORDS
MASCHINE 2.2 extends Keyboard Mode with a new scale and chord engine – fully integrated into the MASCHINE workflow. Simply select your scale and start playing melodies on MASCHINE’s 16 ultra-sensitive pads that are always in key. Engage Chord Mode and play chords directly into your compositions.

ARPEGGIATOR
MASCHINE 2.2 extends Note Repeat into a fully-functional arpeggiator. Play any number of notes and let MASCHINE turn them into a melodic pattern. Use the arpeggiator in combination with Scale and Chord Modes and get polyphonic performances from just one key – always in tune. What’s more, the output of the arpeggiator is recorded into the Pattern Editor – perfect for post-performance editing.

KEYBOARD INTEGRATION
MASCHINE 2.2 gives you full keyboard functionality within the MASCHINE environment. Press browse on your KOMPLETE KONTROL keyboard and the KOMPLETE Browser pops up on your computer screen, letting you select and load a sound directly into a sound slot in MASCHINE. Watch scales, chords, and arpeggios light up across KOMPLETE KONTROL’s Light Guide, see the color of your sounds in MASCHINE directly on the keyboards, and get perfectly-mapped parameters instantly with Native Map.

        Comments about Native Instruments MASCHINE MIKRO MK2:

        My previous review was inaccurate as the reason this product is dysfunctional has nothing to do with Native Instruments and I apologize for my previous comments.

        Apparently Musicians Friend sold us a product that had been returned to the store and didn't bother to contact Native Instruments to find out if it had already been registered. Still trying to get this sorted out, but hope that Musicians Friend will not make this mistake in the future.

        Comments about Native Instruments MASCHINE MIKRO MK2:

        I bought the maschine for my son. Everything went well with the ordering and its arrival, but upon opening it on Christmas we were unable to make it work and there is no support offered by Native-instruments on Christmas day. My son is very computer savvy and if he is stifled by the registration process I wonder what the priorities are at Native Instruments. You can imagine the disappointment this being Christmas day.

              Comments about Native Instruments MASCHINE MIKRO MK2:

              If this had linear recording it would be the perfect tool, I could throw away my DAW. Yea, there's their 'studio' version (still not sure IT does linear), but it is way cost prohibitive

              A bit of a learning curve, but basic concepts are straight forward. Cool how u can use either software or hardware interface, but u have to learn almost twice as much.

              Ultra quick sketch pad, been looking for something like this for a loooooooooooong time.

                Comments about Native Instruments MASCHINE MIKRO MK2:

                -I love this thing, i make hiphop beats with it, and it has replaced my keyboard/synth, sampler, recorder and all except for vocal recording. With dubstep, hiphop, house, trance, electronica and more it is all you'll need except an audio interface for quality.
                The only downside i have found is the difficulty for a new user to do a direct-sample rather than drag-and-drop sampling, but i am still new to it.
                -It comes with a WIDE array of sounds, loops, instruments, as well as plug-ins, effects and add-ons with KOMPLETE and MASCHINE as well as GUITAR RIG, KONTAKT and REAKTOR.
                -I was always a person who preferred hardware over software or hybridware (both hard and soft) and i was used to mpc style sampling, but i much rather this now.
                -Once i learn about it a bit more i don't think i'll use anything else.

                  Comments about Native Instruments MASCHINE MIKRO MK2:

                  As stated in the pros and cons the work flow and the drum samples of the whole "maschine" experience all pretty good, but I kind of wish I could just take the maschine out and start using it with out having to plug it in to a computer.
