Maschine MKII, the next generation of its hardware/software beatmaking workstation.
Here’s what’s new with Maschine MKII:
Each one of the 16 touch-pads can be assigned a different color to easily separate and identify sounds, patterns, groups, and scenes.
With the new Maschine, you can timestretch and pitch shift your samples directly from the hardware, eliminating the need to jump back and forth from host systems.
The Maschine MKII controller now has a master push encoder with grid, and 47 all-click-buttons that help to speed up the workflow.
The Maschine MKII’s high contrast displays have a higher viewing angle that will help keep things visible, even with some difficult live performance placements.
The new Maschine also allows for Host Transport Control, meaning that 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.
There are also some new effects such as Transient Master, Tape and Tube Saturators; and
A full version of the Massive synthesizer is included.
