Native Instruments Maschine


MASCHINE, Native Instruments' brand new groove production studio is the next milestone in NI history. The unparalleled integration of hardware and software found only in MASCHINE is your launching pad for creating pattern-based music with an incredibly fast and fun workflow.

The first of three whopping announcements from Native Instruments to arrive to Gearwire studio through the old news-pipe was the release of MASCHINE at Winter NAMM 2009. MASCHINE is a modern groove production studio that must be screamed when its name is spoken! Easing and speeding the processes of beat creation and arrangement, MASCHINE dream teams an advanced soft sequencer and sampler with a heavily functional controller, capped off with fluid workflow.

Designed with drum machines and grooveboxes in mind, MASCHINE's step sequencer handles everything from spontaneous beat making to focused multi-timbre arrangements. It combines familiar step sequencer operation with realtime polyphonic recording.

The MASCHINE controller included with the system is almost like a limb of the software program, adding the tactility of real instrumentation. It contains 16 pressure-sensitive drum pads which were built to provide both excellent response and mighty durability. These pads, which illuminate to display visual sequences, are joined by eight rotary encoders, a wealth of buttons and two high-res displays, meaning your computer mouse and keyboard can sit these sessions out. Everything you need to control MASCHINE is right there on the control surface. It's such a nice surface I bet you wish you could control any MIDI compatible music gear with it. Well guess what . . . YOU CAN!

With a high-resolution sample engine under the hood, MASCHINE is a versatile virtual instrument that accurately represents intricate drum kits, percussion loops and multi-sampled polyphonic instruments. Automatic sample mapping, beat slicing and note repeat sweeten the deal. MASCHINE's realtime recording and resampling capabilites let you take any signal, external or internal, and capture, map, sculpt and transform it without interrupting musical flow.

Even if your sound library is a bit slim, MASCHINE will fatten it up with virtual shelves full of drum and instrument sounds that cover a wide range of modern and electronic-dependent styles. There are about 10,000 individual sounds overall, so you've got a lot to work with. A browser that works with categories and concise metadata brings this overwhelming amount of samples to an acceptable level of whelming.

Having first dipped their toes in the hardware-manufacturing pool some years ago with products such as Kore and Guitar Rig, Native Instruments have announced what looks to be their most extensive hands-on product yet. Maschine is part-hardware, part-software, the main part of which is a controller that connects to a Mac or PC via a USB cable. This controls a piece of software that has a variety of features designed to appeal to both fans of the classic drum machines and grooveboxes of the ’80s and ’90s, and ultra modern sound-manglers alike.

The controller has 16 touch-sensitive trigger pads, which have polyphonic aftertouch and LED backlighting. These control samples assigned in the software, and can be set to run in step sequencer mode, or as simple, playable pads. They can also be set to control other functions, by using modifier keys. A suite of 20 effects, including filters and delays, are built into the software, and a pair of LCD screens on Maschine’s hardware controller feed back parameter information, while a bank of eight rotary encoders enable the user to tweak settings without touching the mouse.

Delving deeper into Maschine’s functions, users can sample and re-sample from internal and external sources (relying on the user’s existing audio interface) on the fly, and automation can be recorded and edited during playback. There’s even a keyboard mode for playing tonal material, and the hardware isn’t locked to the software — it acts as a fully assignable MIDI controller for any DAW — so it can be used to control your favourite virtual drummer software application. What’s more, Maschine works either as a plug-in or as a stand-alone application, and it comes with a 5GB library of samples to suit “electronic and urban” styles, so the system can be used on its own as a live performance tool.
