MASCHINE 2.2 unlocks MASCHINE STUDIO's touch-sensitive knobs. For example, when browsing, touching a knob automatically takes you to the tag cloud on the hardware display. Depending on which control knob you touch, you'll see all available options and functions in a pop-up list. For instance, routing options for sounds and groups. Absolutely no menu diving - a turbocharged workflow.

MASCHINE 2.2 extends Keyboard Mode with a new scale and chord engine - fully integrated into the MASCHINE workflow. Simply select your scale and start playing melodies on MASCHINE's 16 ultra-sensitive pads that are always in key. Engage Chord Mode and play chords directly into your compositions.

MASCHINE 2.2 extends Note Repeat into a fully-functional arpeggiator. Play any number of notes and let MASCHINE turn them into a melodic pattern. Use the arpeggiator in combination with Scale and Chord Modes and get polyphonic performances from just one key - always in tune. What's more, the output of the arpeggiator is recorded into the Pattern Editor - perfect for post-performance editing.

MASCHINE 2.2 gives you full keyboard functionality within the MASCHINE environment. Press browse on your KOMPLETE KONTROL keyboard and the KOMPLETE Browser pops up on your computer screen, letting you select and load a sound directly into a sound slot in MASCHINE.

  • The most complete, hands off computer DAW

    As reviewed by Symonty Gresham on 3/11/2014

    With much skepticism i approached the Machine Studio. The idea of having a true standalone DAW filled with virtual instruments running on my laptop has been a dream of mine since the 1990's. This is not only the closest to date, it is the only DAW even close to the concept. So far I have not found any normal function that my machine cant handle without referencing the PC and mouse, thus it is incredibly fast. It finally feels like an extension of the music writing experience, not a application.

  • Great product.... Very responsice pads

    As reviewed by CHRIS on 6/9/2014

    I picked up Machine Studio for an easy way to lay down beats for projects I am working on, and also plan on using it for my own electronic music projects. Initially I had problems launching the software after install, as it scans your VST plugins and I had a couple older plugins that were causing it to fail. If you have problems call NI as they are very quick and responsive, if you email NI's support the response times seem very slow. Once the VST issue was resolved I was truely impressed with the responsiveness of the pads and the sounds in the stock library. While I expect I will need some time to fully be able to exploit all the functionality Machine studio, I was able to leverage the device quickly into my workflow without too much effort and I am already using it on projects and I am extremly satisfied. Since the device is more geared toward electronic music I plan on creating my own libraries from accoustic drum samples I have so i can use this product on a wide variety of genres. The only reason I gave 4 stars was due to the old VST's and NI not being responsive to Email request for support. Once I called them directly, I was up and running the same afternoon.

  • Maschine 2.0 will not download on your pc!

    As reviewed by Jeremy Martin on 4/23/2014

    I just bought this several hours ago and I have no way of using it. Every time I start the Downloader It gives me an error with a red stop sign that says "An error occurred while downloading the installation files. The server might be down" I tried every trick they have on the internet (all which have you removing all the protection on your computer and setting it the lowest level of of these options worked as well as countless others that I have tried. Native Instruments support gives you a ticket and tells you they will be back to you in a couple of days. On their forums every person that has this problem (there's more than a few) has been waiting for weeks with no help. This thing is utterly useless without the software so I now have a $1000 paper weight. I thought the Germans were smart? I will be returning this tomorrow for something else.
