PRODUCTION AND PERFORMANCE SYSTEM
Fast, intuitive, and fun way to create and perform tracks and beats
Integrated hardware / software system includes sampler, arranger, mixer, FX, and a built-in audio interface
Includes MASCHINE 2 software and 8 GB sound library plus KOMPLETE 13 SELECT with 50 GB of instruments and effects

BUILT FOR SPEED
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.

MORE VISUAL
Two high-res colour screens make it easy to slice samples, browse and preview sounds, tweak FX, and mix and edit your projects – without looking at your computer.

MORE INTUITIVE
Stay in the creative zone with a truly hands-on, optimised layout with more dedicated function buttons and a new four-directional push encoder.

MORE EXPRESSIVE
Find new ways to express yourself with MASCHINE’s Smart Strip – use it like a pitchwheel to bend sounds, experiment with perform FX, or strum sounds like a guitar.

MORE CONVENIENT
USB-powered and packed with a built-in, pro-grade 96 kHz / 24-bit audio interface, you can record, play, and perform from anywhere.

NEW LOOK. SAME FLOW.
The new MASCHINE takes our classic groovebox workflow and makes it faster and more intuitive. Optimised based on customer research, it’s packed with new features to boost your speed and increase your focus – all without breaking the workflow you love.

BIGGER PADS
Big, bold, and in your face, the larger pads create more room for complex moves like flams and rolls. New technological updates make the pads more sensitive to lighter touches, for more expressive playing. And since the centre-to-centre distance is exactly the same, your muscle memory and workflow don’t have to change.

FULL COLOR, HI RES SCREENS
With two full-colour displays and the four-directional push encoder, you can browse sounds, FXs, plug-ins, and instruments with a tactile, one-handed, completely visual workflow – simply find the thumbnail and load directly from the hardware. Plus, the high-res screens let you get more precise with your mixing, see an overview of your arrangement, or zoom in on waveforms to slice samples like a surgeon.

STUDIO-GRADE AUDIO INTERFACE
MASCHINE now comes with a studio-grade, 96kHz / 24-bit audio interface for pristine sound. Simply patch in a synth or add a dynamic mic for quick recording and sampling. Stereo line and MIDI ports make it a perfect centrepiece for any studio. Plus, it’s USB-powered, so you can record anywhere with your laptop.

FASTER WORKFLOW
The new hardware layout cuts through the clutter to help you stay focused and get your ideas out fast. Instead of being hidden behind a shift-function button, some of the most-used features and functions can now be accessed directly with one touch.

PAD INPUT MODE BUTTONS
Drum rhythms, program patterns, or play melodies and chords, switching easily with the click of a button.

LOCK BUTTON
Take parameter snapshots, tweak settings, and return back to the original settings to discover new transitions.

MACRO BUTTON
Simply touch a knob to assign your favourite parameters to macros and start tweaking.

NOTE REPEAT BUTTON
Play fills and arps during a performance with a larger, easier-to-find button.

UPDATED TRANSPORT SECTION
Transport buttons now include deeper integration with most DAWs and direct access to Follow and Tempo Tap.

FIXED VELOCITY BUTTON
Program accents and ghost notes quickly with 16 fixed velocity levels or get a smooth, constant volume when triggering samples.

UPDATED FILE MANAGEMENT
Open a recent project, make changes, and save it as a new file without ever touching the mouse with new Save and Open buttons.

EXPANDED CONTROL SECTION
Quickly jump between views with one-touch access to the Arranger, Mixer, Sound Browser or Sampler.

8 TOUCH SENSITIVE KNOBS
Go beyond tweaking with eight touch sensitive knobs. Touch once to activate special contextual menus, such as tag clouds, sound settings, and FX parameters. You can also map your most frequently used FX, instruments, or plug-in parameters to macros with the touch of a button.

SMART STRIP FOR NEW WAYS TO PLAY
The Smart Strip opens up MASCHINE to whole new ways of playing. Use it like a keyboard wheel to pitch-bend and modulate sounds. Add new sonic textures, builds, or transitions with advanced performance FX like stutter and scratch. Or strum samples, synths, and drums like a guitar.

CLIPS
Create transitions across scenes, bring unique variation to patterns, record MIDI directly into the full arrangement, and freely place audio wherever you need it.

IDEAS VIEW
With MASCHINE 2.6.5, Ideas view was added to make sketching and arranging tracks more intuitive. Record alternate musical phrases or play different beats nonstop. Then mix and match until you find a groove you like.

PARAMETER SNAPSHOT MORPHING
Lock lets you freeze your current settings, tweak a sound, change an envelope, and return back to your initial settings at the press of a button. Combine it with the new Morph function to discover new transitions or add improvisation during a performance.

VARIATION ENGINE
The new Variation Engine is perfect for adding texture to a track or sparking new ideas. Use Randomise to create new patterns and melodies on the fly. Or add a little swing to your drums with Humanise.
