Native Instrument’s powerful Maschine MK3 is bigger, badder, and better than ever

Native Instruments are back on the scene with an all-in-one producing, programming, music-making beast in the shape of the Maschine MK3.

The new Maschine takes everything that made their previous iterations special and expands, improves and updates it for their best Maschine yet. The new Maschine MK3 takes the classic groovebox workflow of the last and makes it faster and intuitive, using market research to create the product people wanted.

So what’s new, what’s improved, what do we get in Maschine MK3:

BIGGER PADS

Big, bold, and in your face, the larger pads create more room for complex moves like flams and rolls. New technological updates make the pads more sensitive to lighter touches, for more expressive playing. And since the center-to-center distance is exactly the same, your muscle memory and workflow don’t have to change.

FULL COLOR, HI RES SCREENS

With two full-color displays and the four-directional push encoder, you can browse sounds, FXs, plug-ins, and instruments with a tactile, one-handed, completely visual workflow – simply find the thumbnail and load directly from the hardware. Plus, the high-res screens let you get more precise with your mixing, see an overview of your arrangement, or zoom in on waveforms to slice samples like
a surgeon.

STUDIO-GRADE AUDIO INTERFACE

MASCHINE now comes with a studio-grade, 96kHz / 24-bit audio interface for pristine sound. Simply patch in a synth or add a dynamic mic for quick recording and sampling. Stereo line and MIDI ports make it a perfect centrepiece for any studio. Plus, it’s USB-powered, so you can record anywhere with your laptop – or plug in the included power supply unit for brighter pads.

FASTER WORKFLOW

The new hardware layout cuts through the clutter to help you stay focused and get your ideas out fast. Instead of being hidden behind a shift-function button, some of the most-used features and functions can now be accessed directly with one touch.
