The Native Instruments MASCHINE MIKRO MK3 is a compact yet powerful music production instrument that integrates powerful software with tactile, responsive hardware. With four ways to input sound using 16 highly responsive velocity-sensitive pads in Pad, Keyboard, Chord or Step mode, the MIKRO MK3 lets producers tap out beats and melodies and quickly build up loops and track ideas. The MIKRO MK3 comes with the full MASCHINE software, including 25 studio and creative effects like filters, EQs, delays, reverbs and compressors, giving you complete control over your tracks. The classic groovebox features—like 16 pad velocity levels, swing, pad link, note repeat and step sequencer—provide an authentic beatmaking experience. The MIKRO MK3's seamless integration of software and hardware gives you a production ecosystem that rivals other pad controllers. Use it on its own or as a VST, AU or AAX plug-in in major DAWs like Ableton Live, Pro Tools, Logic Pro and FL Studio.

Pads and Smart Strip for Intuitive Control

The MIKRO MK3's 16 large, ultra-responsive pads make finger drumming and playing a pleasure. The dual-touch Smart Strip lets you slide fingers to strum instruments, manipulate sounds and navigate the software. An OLED display and push encoder simplify browsing, volume/pan control and parameter changes.

Vintage Sampling With Modern Power

The MIKRO MK3 has the same powerful sampler, arranger and mixer as the MASCHINE MK3, MASCHINE STUDIO and MASCHINE JAM. Sample and sequence like a classic MPC, then take advantage of the modern sound library, slicing, sampling, tagging and browser.

Compact Design, Endless Creativity

Despite its compact, lightweight design, the MIKRO MK3 nurtures endless creativity. Its immediacy and simplicity free you to focus on the music.
