The Native Instrument groovebox has undergone a number of upgrades.
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.
