    • MASCHINE MKII BLACK PRODUCT FEATURES:

      MASSIVE BONUS

      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 hardware. 

      MASCHINE's eight control knobs offer direct access to MASSIVE's eight Macro controls, for perfect synergy between hardware and synthesizer, and a lightning-fast workflow. 

      NEW MASTER SECTION

      The Master section has been redesigned. Control volume, tempo and swing with the new multifunction master push encoder - select modes with the new toggle buttons and accurately click through values without having to look at the screen or display. 

      Navigating and scrubbing are much easier, and changing note pitch and detailed tweaking becomes extra-precise thanks to the encoder's superb physical response. 

      Now with 47 white, backlit click-buttons and colored transport controls, the Mk2 hardware provides a wealth of physical and visual excitement for intuitive beat making. 

      TIME STRETCH AND PITCH SHIFT

      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.

      NEW EFFECTS

      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, for even greater sound coloring potential. 

      NEW LOOK AND FEEL

      The new hardware is a leap forward in usability, reliability and aesthetics. The inverted displays provide higher contrast, a better viewing angle for performance or studio, and a sharper look in dark environments. 

      Slightly heavier than before, the controller also works better in a studio set-up and on stage due to the re-worked layout of the controller's USB-connector and MIDI I/O - less risk of accidental unplugging. Plus, new rubber feet mean increased grip on the desktop, keeping the hardware firmly in place during even the most aggressive beat routines. 

      CUSTOMIZABLE HARDWARE

      Match your style - the new MASCHINE hardware has an exchangeable magnetic faceplate. The black edition has a black plate with black knobs, the white edition has a silver faceplate with white knobs. 

      Bring on the MASCHINE CUSTOM KITS - available in five eye-catching color schemes, each provides a new faceplate and matching knobs. Changing the faceplate and knobs is easy - customize your MASCHINE for a whole new look in seconds. 

      WORKFLOW IMPROVEMENTS

      Experienced and new MASCHINE producers alike will appreciate the big time savings from these workflow improvements in the MASCHINE software: 

      - Host transport control: Running the MASCHINE software as a plug-in in your DAW*, use the transport buttons on the MASCHINE 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.
      - Revised select screen: Now includes individual note length and velocity editing.
      - Auto-write pinning: Pin the Auto-Write button for improved automation recording - tweak with two hands!
      - New hardware shortcuts: Select and erase events quickly and easily.
      - Panic button: Immediately cuts off all sound from MASCHINE.
      - 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.

      *Please note that this feature may not be compatible with Pro Tools.
