Start Producing with NI's Most Beginner-Friendly Maschine Hardware

Native Instruments' Maschine Mikro MK3 Groove Production Studio is a compact-yet-powerful hardware controller for your computer. Just plug in your laptop or desktop via USB, fire up the included Maschine software, and you've got everything you need for sampling, sequencing, and building great beats.

The Machine Mikro MK3's rugged yet portable hardware offers sixteen touch-sensitive, color-codable sample pads for launching and arranging drums, one-shot samples, and synths. The supplied Maschine software comes packed with an extensive catalog of samples, Native Instruments' versatile repertoire of digital effects, and the legendary Massive software synth -- so right out of the box, the Maschine Mikro MK3 is ready to help you get your groove on.

Beat Production Hardware

The Maschine Mikro MK3 is a portable groove production system that makes it easy for experienced producers and newbies alike to build tracks on-the-fly, thanks to Native Instruments' intuitive sequencing/sampler hardware. Just load up a group of samples on the 16 touch-sensitive sample pads, and start laying down a beat. You can color-code your sample pads any way you like, so you'll always remember which pad triggers what sample. It's easy to tap complex, dynamic beats on the Maschine Mikro's responsive pads in just a few seconds. With the ability to integrate with multiple DAWs via USB MIDI, the Maschine Mikro MK3 is designed as a studio production tool, but also serves as a powerful performance-ready sequencing sampler.

Maschine Essentials Software and Samples Included

The included Maschine software supplies 4 GB of content, so you'll have immediate access to tons of drum kits, synths, basses, and acoustic instruments the first time you use it. Of course, you can always expand your library with Native Instruments' many Maschine expansion packs or your own VST or Audio Units plug-ins. The Mikro MK3 also comes with Native Instruments' Massive, Monark, and Reaktor Prism software synthesizers with thousands of sounds -- so you'll be making righteous beats in no time.

zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Very Cool"
Sound: It comes with the Maschine Essentials library and a few other goodies, and there are thousands of sounds to play with right off the bat. They all sound really good, but IMHO they are mostly geared towards EDM and dance music. I upgraded to the full library once I got familiar with the software so I could have a bigger variety of sounds to work with. Feature: I like that I can do so much from the box itself and just get lost in it. I wish the display was a little bigger for my old eyes, but I certainly understand why it is the way it is in order to keep the cost affordable.I also like that Maschine pulls in other NI instruments you have into the sound libraries. The possibilities are endless! Ease of Use: Once you get the hang of everything it is very easy to use. Again, if you are new to this definitely take some time to watch the NI instructional videos because some actions don't seem very intuitive at first. Quality: The build quality is excellent. Value: I think overall this is a great value if you are looking for a different way to make music, or just want to get into beat making in general. I can't compare it to other products because this is my first foray into this type of equipment. Manufacturer Support: I had one small issue activating the product and it was my own fault. NI got back to me the next day via email, but by then I had already figured out what I did wrong. I suggest taking a picture of your serial number and blowing it up on your phone. The S and 5, and B and 8 look very similar, even to my kids much younger eyes! The Wow Factor: I'd say there's a lot of Wow in this box! Overall: OK So I'm an old guy, and buying a 'beat box' was literally the last thing I ever thought I would do. I don't play house, hip hop, or EDM, but I've always been fascinated with electronic music and how to integrate it into my more mainstream rock/jazz/crap original compositions. After researching and getting Komplete I saw a ton of videos about Maschine and well, I took the bait and got one.If you are already familiar with sample players then this is a no brainer. Maschine is a powerhouse tool for what you already do. If you aren't, then don't be like me and pigeon hole them into a single class of music. You can do almost any type of music on this system. Yes, it's a different way of doing things, but for me at least, it breaks me out of my linear music production mindset and allows me to think about music differently and be more creative.The software works seamlessly with the hardware. Load it on a laptop and sit on the couch with phones on and sketch ideas all day long. It does take a bit to understand the relationship between patterns and scenes and how it all works together. There are hundreds of instructional videos out there to assist, but the NI YouTube videos helped me the most with the very basic elements of the software.The box itself seems very well built. It has some weight to it which adds to the feeling of quality. The pads are very very nice and respond well to touch velocity. I would recommend this for home studio and composition any day of the week, but if you are thinking about using it live you may want to look at the MK3 instead of the Mikro. You still need to use the PC a little with this box, which is fine for me.
Style of Music: Prog rock, jazz, Christian
