The Native Instrument groovebox has undergone a number of upgrades.
According to an article published by MusicRadar.com, US retailer Guitar Center has published information on Native Instruments' forthcoming Maschine MKII.
In recent years, Maschine has been one of Native Instruments' most popular offerings. Able to be utilised for both the studio and live environment, the drum machine/controller/groovebox has become a staple tool for musicians around the world, becoming something of a one-stop-shop for production and performance. The MKII boasts an array of both visual and technical upgrades which sees a new feature giving users full control over the time-stretching and pitch shifting of samples, an additional 47 click buttons and the ability to colour code each of the 16 touch pads. Now, a total of 6GB of ready-to-use samples will come preloaded, and will also feature Komplete Elements, and a full version of synth plug-in Massive.
Native Instruments' Maschine MKII will be available on September 21st at a retail price of $599.
