Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (9 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Big Maschine in a smaller package"
Overall: I purchased the larger version of Maschine when it first came out and loved it, but was torn between it and some of my other controllers since I have limited desk space. So, I decided to try Maschine Mikro and boy did it help with the space problems while giving me everything that the bigger Maschine did. Even though it only has one screen and not as many knobs, I have only found those things to make me click one or two times more with my mouse than the big Maschine. Other than that the work flow and ease of use is still superb. Would recommend this to anyone who doesnt have the coin for the big Maschine, has limited desk space, or wants to be introduced to what Maschine has to offer.

"The Maschine Mikro. I love It!"
Overall: I found this product to meet and greatly exceed my expectations. The fact that you get the full sound and functionality of the Maschine in the more compact Maschine Mikro- for about two-thirds the price- is simply phenomenal. Greatly more than 1000 sounds , as well as an interface that- once figured out- is fairly easy to use. There are only a few things that I do not like about it. The one is that the program is very touchy, and it's very easy to make a mistake, which can be frustrating, and takes up time. One other thing I found is that the Program takes a long time to figure out. I would seriously recommend finding the user manual, and reading it from top to bottom. Another thing I find that helps is looking at some of the manufacturer's sample songs. These give you an overview of what a finalized song looks like, and helped me to make my own. Other than those two very minute "quirks"; the program sounds great, is worth the price, and is built like a steel girder. I love the program and the pad, they feel good, and make for a great musical experience.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
