Comments about Native Instruments MASCHINE MK3:

My only downfall for the beautiful piece of equipment is the setup. This is my first drum/groove machine. I'm really excited to learn it as I go along but, there should be more how to when it comes to downloading everything. Maybe it's just me cause now that I figured it all out I feel silly for not knowing but, there should be some kind of instructions. But I love it.

Comments about Native Instruments MASCHINE MK3:

Easy to use as long as you download the online downloadable manual and getting started book on the Native Instruments website as long as you have used a sampler, DAW, or drum machine, synthesizer; bass machine or keyboard, you can use the Maschine MK3 it gets easier as you try the sample drums or instruments or sound effects before you pick them in your sounds, patterns and snapshots. Also downloading all the programs from Native Access may have taken a while and its worth it. Hoping later to buy the Komplete Kontrol synth and controller.

          Automatic Pitch and Time Stretch Audio Support Now - Yea thats in software - but with how you can slice/scale audio and samples from hardware - in real time now - makes the hardware even that much more fun, and takes your eyes away form the software. Build Quality is amazing and pads are larger but with the same center matrix as old controllers. Pricey is why its 4 stars - but i'm still finding more sick things to do every day.

              Comments about Native Instruments MASCHINE MK3:

              Really important to mention a very common problem with the MK3. Big issues with a lot of the sample packs giving the error message "(insert sample pack name here) cannot be loaded".
              Super common problem a lot of people are experiencing. I did a brand new installation and the only advice I could find was to re-install since the software, for some reason, didn't recognize the path to find the samples. I moved the samples, re-installed...and still nothing.
              Everyone should know before buying the MK3 that it isn't as easy to set up and use as the videos make it look.
              Also, super important to mention that there is no tech support for Native Instruments...only FAQ pages on their site that typically don't address the issue correctly and the website has a ton of errors.
              Spent almost $800 for the MK3 (with protection plan from Guitar Center) and returned it after staring at my computer for 3 days trying to figure out a problem that should have been solved before these hit the market.
              Buyer beware. Not as advertised and no tech support. Strongly re-consider buying an MK3.........
