OVERVIEW

NI’s compact groove production studio.

MASCHINE MIKRO is the perfect entry into the world of MASCHINE, giving you tactile, hands-on control for beat production, sampling and performance. This compact groove production system has plenty to boast about with 16 ultra-responsive multi-color pads that provide the ultimate feel in the thick of the beat. Its compact size and bus-powered operation mean you’re in control no matter where you are. And MASCHINE MIKRO is powered by MASCHINE 2 software, which is exploding with cutting-edge technology. Improved browsing, arranging, and sampling, plus a new mixer, plug-in strip, and exclusive drum synths. Get ready for the most responsive, fluid, and musical beatmaking experience ever.

MASCHINE MIKRO’s ultra-fast, tag-based browser gives your creativity no time to slow down. Use MASCHINE MIKRO's display screen to quickly find any project, group, sound, instrument, effect or sample. Then simply load it and go. Get inspired by over 22 GB of sound. Create your own drums with sonically outstanding drum synths, and dial-in 25 pro-grade effects directly from the hardware. Plus, you get KOMPLETE SELECT – a premium selection of 10 KOMPLETE Instruments and Effects. Get a full suite of professional sound right out of the box and control it all from your MASCHINE MIKRO hardware.

Scales and Chords
MASCHINE 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 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 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™.

Introducing Native Kontrol Standard®
KOMPLETE KONTROL continues its evolution with Native Kontrol Standard® (NKS). NKS is Native Instruments’ extended plug-in format that opens up the KOMPLETE KONTROL system.

It allows VST and KONTAKT instrument developers to integrate their plug-ins with KOMPLETE KONTROL and MASCHINE at the same deep level as KOMPLETE Instruments. This means that even instruments not built by NI can be fully integrated in the KOMPLETE KONTROL and MASCHINE browsers, with instrument parameters intelligently mapped straight out of the box. NKS instruments can access the Light Guide, Smart Play features, and the full creative potential of KOMPLETE KONTROL. And what’s more, the NKS version of an instrument will be a free update for existing owners.

Save On KOMPLETE Software!
If you are purchasing, or already own a MASCHINE Series product, you qualify for special pricing on KOMPLETE 10 and KOMPLETE 10 ULTIMATE. Unlock the full potential of MASCHINE by combining it with the worldwide industry-standard instrument and effect suites for production, performance, and sound design. These two collections of advanced software instruments and effects not only give you a wealth of sound to choose from – they also fire up your imagination. And MASCHINE Series Groove Production Controllers open up their full potential.

  • Perfect entry into hands-on beatmaking
  • 16 ultra-responsive, multi-color pads

      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.
