Maschine Studio: The Ultimate Beat Machine

Music production is so easy when you have all the right tools. A complete studio in a box, Native Instruments Maschine Studio is a hybrid system that integrates hardware with software for the ultimate music-making experience.

NI has upgraded their hit Maschine hardware controller with a fat jog wheel, metering section, and two big, bright color screens. Of course, the Maschine Studio hardware is loaded with the colorful physical pads, buttons, and knobs that made the original Maschines so useful.

With Maschine Studio, you also get NI's Maschine 2.0 software -- with all its awesome virtual instruments, effects, samples, and essential features like the mixer, sampler, and plug-in strip. The hardware and software integrate perfectly, giving you an all-in-one station for producing music.

Whether you use Maschine Studio on its own, or as a plug-in for another DAW, this machine has all the creative production tools, sounds, and features you could want for making cutting-edge beats, full tracks, mixes, and more.

Speed Up Your Workflow

Using Maschine Studio is like using a dedicated controller designed just for your DAW. If you're used to a computer-based setup, you know how tedious it can be to do everything on your laptop in conjunction with an external controller. Since Maschine Studio combines both hardware and software, setting up your rig is fast, and creating music is efficient.

A Look Inside Maschine 2.0

Maschine 2.0 software features a revamped user interface designed to streamline your workflow. Improved controls and better visual feedback allow you to do what you need to do and check the status of your tracks with just one glance. The software includes all the essentials for digital music production: high-quality drum synths, a professional audio mixer, sampler, plug-in strip, browser, sample library, virtual instruments, effects, and studio-integration tools.

Drool-Worthy Drum Synths

Multi-mode drum synthesizers deliver perfectly-tuned acoustic and electronic sounds, while a classic groovebox offers 16 velocity levels, swing, pad link, note repeat, step sequencer, and vintage MPC 60/SP 1200 sampling emulation.

Pro Mixer and Plug-In Strip Onboard

With Maschine's digital mixer, you can finalize your tracks in a snap. One view shows you display groups, modular routing, aux sends, and more, so you always know where you stand with your music. You can also check out your instruments and effects at a glance with Maschine 2.0's updated plug-in strip, in which each internal instrument and effect has its own individual layout. You can load any VST or AU plug-in into Maschine, load unlimited effect plug-ins, and get complete integration with all Komplete instruments and effects.

Comprehensive Collection of FX, Instruments, and Sounds

To get you started making music right off the bat, Maschine's expansive 8 GB sample library includes samples, one-shots, sliced loops, sampled instruments, presets, patterns, drum kits, and projects spanning all genres.

In addition to NI Massive -- a workhorse of a synth for basses, leads, and pads -- Maschine software also features full versions of the Reaktor Prism drum synth, the Scarbee Mark I electric piano, and the Solid Bus Comp for "gluing" your mixes together.

Want More Sounds? Sample Your Own

Sample, slice, and dice with the upgraded sampler, which offers a user-friendly plug-in view, zero-crossing detection, eight-point sample interpolation, and overlapping slices. Then find your sounds quickly with Maschine 2.0's tag-based visual browser that lets you browse by attribute, product name, and icons.

Easy Studio Integration

For seamless integration into your studio environment, Maschine software lets you import MIDI files directly, send CC control to your gear, control Maschine parameters directly from your host DAW, and send MIDI program changes to VST/Audio Units plug-ins.

Tactile Control

The upgraded hardware controller gives you incredible physical control of the software via touch-sensitive, multi-color pads; detailed color screens; dedicated edit buttons; a metering section so you can see your levels right on the Maschine; eight display knobs; and a jog wheel for editing, scrubbing, browsing, and more. The two big color displays show waveforms, patterns, scenes, track levels, mixer channels, and the visual browser.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (11 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Worth the upgrade for me"
Overall: I'm an owner of MK2 that was purchased around 2 years ago, and I immediately thought it was the best studio purchase I've ever made. Now here comes the Maschine Studio with all the fancy buttons and 2 cool color display screens. I purchased this during the NI sale at $799, and at $799, I am more than pleased with my purchase. CPU hog? I honestly can't tell the difference. Now I have to say that when I bought my PC, I knew what I'd be using it for, so I did my research and didn't skimp on the CPU and memory. I'm sure this had made for a better experience when using Maschine Studio. I now find myself with my hands and eyes more on the controller than the mouse pad, and this has no doubt been nothing but a plus for my creativity and productiveness when working. As many have said, I do agree - The possibilities are endless with when it comes to creativity, and with that there is a much stronger learning curve here. But truth be told - If not for the sale, I would've never bought it. As much as I love this piece of equipment, I do think the $999 normal price tag may be asking a bit much especially compared to the other choices in the market.

"Maschine studio is worth it."
Overall: After learning the 2.0 software the Maschine studio makes life easy. You can literally adjust very sound individually or as a group, set patterns and groups, save samples, open up projects, record samples live as they play, you can even adjust the patterns via hardware. After learning the hardware and software you shouldn't need to look at your computer screen everything is available in front of you on the hardware.
