MASCHINE MIKRO is the perfect entry into the world of MASCHINE, giving you tactile, hands-on control for beat production, sampling and performance. This compact groove production system has plenty to boast about with 16 ultra-responsive multi-color pads that provide the ultimate feel in the thick of the beat. Its compact size and bus-powered operation mean you’re in control no matter where you are. And MASCHINE MIKRO is powered by MASCHINE 2 software, which is exploding with cutting-edge technology. Improved browsing, arranging, and sampling, plus a new mixer, plug-in strip, and exclusive drum synths. Get ready for the most responsive, fluid, and musical beatmaking experience ever.

MASCHINE MIKRO’s ultra-fast, tag-based browser gives your creativity no time to slow down. Use MASCHINE MIKRO's display screen to quickly find any project, group, sound, instrument, effect or sample. Then simply load it and go. Get inspired by over 22 GB of sound. Create your own drums with sonically outstanding drum synths, and dial-in 25 pro-grade effects directly from the hardware. Plus, you get KOMPLETE SELECT – a premium selection of 10 KOMPLETE Instruments and Effects. Get a full suite of professional sound right out of the box and control it all from your MASCHINE MIKRO hardware.

Scales and Chords
MASCHINE 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.

Arpeggiator
MASCHINE 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.

Keyboard Integration
MASCHINE 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. Watch scales, chords, and arpeggios light up across KOMPLETE KONTROL’s Light Guide™, see the color of your sounds in MASCHINE directly on the keyboards, and get perfectly mapped parameters instantly with Native Map™.

Introducing Native Kontrol Standard®
KOMPLETE KONTROL continues its evolution with Native Kontrol Standard® (NKS). NKS is Native Instruments’ extended plug-in format that opens up the KOMPLETE KONTROL system.

It allows VST and KONTAKT instrument developers to integrate their plug-ins with KOMPLETE KONTROL and MASCHINE at the same deep level as KOMPLETE Instruments. This means that even instruments not built by NI can be fully integrated in the KOMPLETE KONTROL and MASCHINE browsers, with instrument parameters intelligently mapped straight out of the box. NKS instruments can access the Light Guide, Smart Play features, and the full creative potential of KOMPLETE KONTROL. And what’s more, the NKS version of an instrument will be a free update for existing owners.

Save On KOMPLETE Software!
If you are purchasing, or already own a MASCHINE Series product, you qualify for special pricing on KOMPLETE 10 and KOMPLETE 10 ULTIMATE. Unlock the full potential of MASCHINE by combining it with the worldwide industry-standard instrument and effect suites for production, performance, and sound design. These two collections of advanced software instruments and effects not only give you a wealth of sound to choose from – they also fire up your imagination. And MASCHINE Series Groove Production Controllers open up their full potential.

Amazing product with so many features packed in.

By James

from Dayton, Ohio

Comments about Native Instruments Maschine Mikro MK2:

I absolutely love this product. Works just as well as the bigger brothers and honestly I think this is the best one. Portability on this is great and can still do everything the other models can do. It may not have all the controls but you can still do everything on the software when it comes to some serious tweaking. Other than that you can control everything from the controller with ease. Has awesome keyboard mode for virtual instruments. You can adjust the velocity of each note easily by just dragging a slider in the beat grid. Plenty of effects come with it although I bought komplete 9 to compliment it. Everyday I'm learning more and more things I can do with. Easy to get several group going and switch between. Can adjust things on a group level, specific sound level, or a master level. I really like going into the mixer view for my plugins because of the nice analog looking visuals(if you already have plugins, they are not needed at all). Sampling stuff in is pretty easy. Using this as a midi controller took some work and playing to figure out and so did midi routing. I think this is an excellent product for a beginner who doesn't know much or somebody who has experience producing music.

Amazing music maker...

By Stephen Ressel

from Clifford, ND

Comments about Native Instruments Maschine Mikro MK2:

I researched beat machines for a few months and decided on the Maschine Mikro Mk 2. As soon as it arrived (and after an extensive software install), I was making music unlike I had done before. The Maschines all come with a HUGE package of software--many different instruments and kits, along with the Maschine 2.0 DAW. It takes about a day to get through the "Get Started" booklet to learn the system, then it takes another day to sort out all the audio samples and instruments. Learning the full capability of a Maschine seems to take weeks or months. I was easily importing audio clips and assigning them to pads within the first hour of use, and if you have previous knowledge of beat makers, this device will quickly become familiar. The pads on the Mk2 are nicely sensitive, the various light colors are useful and decorative, and the entire package is perfection--small, light, attractive, versatile, capable, user friendly.

Amazing rhythm builder

By Michael Hearn

from Chapel Hill, NC

Comments about Native Instruments Maschine Mikro MK2:

I spent almost a week researching a solid rhythm builder I could use in my "studio" (glorified man cave). Up until recent I had a Korg padKontrol, which was excellent, but I wanted something a little more streamlined and easier to use with software out of the box. I looked at several different products and almost jumped on the SparkLE, but decided to dig into the Maschine. My initial impression was it was a tool for just sampling with a beat maker built in, so a Hip-Hop "instrument". Most of the videos found on the internet painted this image in my head, but I kept digging and found examples outside that genre. I broke down and decided to just jump on the Maschine Mikro since the SparkLE (at this point) hadn't been released yet. I can honestly say, I'm glad I bought this over the SparkLE. Mobility was my main factor concerning hardware, and the Maschine Mikro is at the top end of size that I'm interested in. I think I'll be interested in grabbing a full sized Maschine one day, but the ability to throw this in a laptop bag is important. There is a learning curve, but at the end of day one I was able to play the device without ever looking at my computer screen. The pads feel great, the step sequencer is perfect, and the software is A+. I can use some of my Waves plug-ins within the Maschine software, couldn't ask for more. It is literally drag and drop for midi and audio. I've been using it to create midi patterns and then drop it into Pro Tools to use with Superior Drummer. The additional software is pretty decent. Massive is quickly becoming one of my favorite synths. The software made me go from thinking the package was pricey to the price being a great value. Though, I do hope they release different packages in the future. I may want new hardware in the future, but not pay for the software that I already own. All in all, I haven't been this excited about a new instrument in a long time. It's powerful, creative, and most of all fun. Now NI, how about a midi keyboard?
