Maschine MK3 Groove Production Studio

Go Beyond the Grid

Since the release of the original Maschine, Native Instruments has shown us what musicians can create with intuitive hardware that unlocks the limitless potential of creative software. Now in its third incarnation, Maschine is more powerful, more capable and easier to pick up and learn than ever.

If you're already an owner of an earlier model Maschine, own a different groovebox, or are looking to get in on the game with a top-quality device, read on to find out what's new in Maschine MK3!

Improved Pads, Smart Strip Integration

Native Instruments Maschine MK3
If Maschine MK3 pads seem to be placed closer together than on previous incarnations, they are -- it's because the MK3 pads are actually larger. They've also been made more sensitive than in the past, making for easier, more accurate finger drumming, especially when using two hands.

Maschine MK3 adds the innovative Smart Strip control. This strip lets you easily bend pitch, "strum" notes, and control your effects parameters. A row of LED lights just above the Smart Strip makes it easy to find even in dark clubs.

Well Connected

Native Instruments Maschine MK3
One of the most useful additions Maschine MK3 boasts is its integrated 96 kHz/24-bit audio interface, which consists of stereo 1/4" inputs, a 1/4" dynamic mic input, stereo 1/4" outputs and a 1/4" headphone output. All this -- plus the included 8 GB of samples, drums and loops from Native Instruments Komplete -- makes Maschine MK3 incredibly easy to get started on right out of the box. No need for an external interface or sample library!

And if you do already have a robust studio setup at home, you'll be happy to know that Maschine MK3 is compatible with all major DAWs and offers advanced integration with your Komplete software and controllers.
