Maschine - Intelligent hardware for the modern producer

ReasonRack.com, 23.05.2013
So whether you are a producer, part time music maker or simply a synth geek, There is no question that the iconic sight of 16 drum pads, sitting in rows of 4 squared stirs up the urge to play them and create music!
With Maschine however you are not just getting a devise for triggering drum samples. You are getting a Daw controller and a serious range of knobs and buttons that fit right in when used with any of the Komplete instruments & effects.
Maschine also has its own software, A simple to use sequencer where you can plug in any other Native Instruments devise and it will map to the knobs and buttons on the Maschine flawlessly.
The Maschine also come with Midi In & Out besides the usb function so attaching a separate hardware synth can also be done very easily.
In my own production I have used the hardware with Reason, Ableton and a range of other software sequencers. In each case I have found it to be very useful.
The sounds that come with the maschine library are very high quality and instantly make your speakers want to dance.

Very good sequencing workstation and sampler

27.02.2015
Maschine's pattern based approach to arranging has been a gamechanger in my songwriting. I've been struggling with traditional DAWs, but coming from old pattern based Amiga and DOS trackers the Maschine feels intuitive and easy.

The Maschine has been designed hardware first, so it's pretty intuitive to use. You don't need a mouse for most of the functions, and the computer screen tends to fall asleep when working. A good advice for a Maschine user is that when you reach for the mouse, find out how to do the same thing using the controller.

Build quality is generally good, pads are excellent and very sensitive. Some of the knobs felt looser than the others, that's why I gave build quality 4 stars, but every knob and button works well.

Sampling and slicing is really straightforward. Drum synths, scales and chord mode included in the 2.0 software are an excellent addition too.

Sequencing hardware synths and using them together with software instruments is really easy with the Maschine. It only has one midi out, so you need a powered midi thru box (passive ones don't work) or synths with midi thru.

After a month with the Maschine I really have nothing bad to say about it. After many frustrating years with differents DAWs I have finally found a workflow that suits me perfectly. And of course you can run the Maschine inside a DAW as a VST to get the best of both worlds.
