The new color-coding lets you ‘see' your sounds, and it will turbo-charge your workflow.
Simply assign colors to the groups, sounds, patterns, and scenes, and see the pads on the hardware light up in the same colors. Make your kick drums red, for example, and you'll always know which pads play your kicks. Add some color to your performances!
And with the increased sensitivity of the new pads, you also have a new level of precision at your fingertips.
All MASCHINE users will get the full version of the modern legend MASSIVE - the synth that gave birth to the earth-shuddering bass tones and speaker-troubling leads that have defined the bass music genre.
This monster synth contains 1,300 ready-to-go sounds, all instantly browseable via the MASCHINE MIKRO hardware.
TIME STRETCH AND NOTE PITCH
The MASCHINE software includes time-stretch and pitch shift capability. Stretch smoothly from one BPM to another, aided by the automatic BPM detection. Or stretch your audio to a specific length - to fit one sample to the same length as another, for example.
What's more, make your beats match harmonically, by tuning your samples with the pitch shift function.
The latest free software update includes new effects, specially selected for beat production. TRANSIENT MASTER, NI's hugely popular dynamics and mixing effect, has now been fully integrated in the MASCHINE software. Ideal for positioning drums and percussion, it lets you mix from front to back, giving each sample exactly the right amount of space.
New Tube, Tape Saturator and Tube Saturator effects bring the secrets of analog warmth and natural, harmonic compression to MASCHINE MIKRO, for even greater sound coloring potential.
Experienced and new MASCHINE MIKRO producers alike will appreciate the big time savings from these workflow improvements in the free MASCHINE software update:
- Host transport control: Running the MASCHINE software as a plug-in in your DAW*, use the transport buttons on the MASCHINE MIKRO hardware to control transport in the host software. Important: Requires the latest version of the NI Controller Editor. - New Browser sample preview mode: Easily scroll through the browser list and pre-hear samples without loading them. - Auto-write: Record parameter modulation directly from the hardware with the push encoder. - New hardware shortcuts: Select and erase events quickly and easily. - Panic button: Immediately cuts off all sound from MASCHINE MIKRO. - Improved missing sample handling: Now locates files per project - point the MASCHINE software to the location for one missing file, and it automatically resolves other related missing files. - Sampler play position indicator: See the play marker in the sampler wave display also shown in the hardware display. - Save group with samples: Now you have the option to save Group with samples.
