Groove Production Studio Updated


Native Instruments have released MASCHINE 1.1, a free software update for its innovative groove production studio. They tell us that the new version further optimizes the workflow and increases the creative potential of MASCHINE through new MIDI I/O capabilities, support for the REX loop format, enhanced controller interaction, and more.
Here's more details directly from the NI press release...
To allow producers to easily incorporate external gear into their MASCHINE projects, the new version adds MIDI I/O functionality. Hardware synthesizers and similar devices can now be controlled from the MASCHINE sequencer both through polyphonic tracks and from individual monophonic sounds within a Group, while a special "Batch Setup" function makes it easy to set up MIDI input configurations in existing projects. MASCHINE 1.1 also adds support for REX files, enabling users to include pre-sliced loops in their projects that sync to tempo automatically. Any pattern in MASCHINE can also be directly exported as an audio file into a host sequencer or other audio software through a convenient drag-and-drop feature.
Further enhancements in MASCHINE version 1.1 include additional slicing options, advanced scene triggering, new metronome and record count-in options, extended controller integration for parameter adjustment and file saving, and a wide range of minor optimizations.
Pricing and Availability:
The 1.1 update is now available as free download for all owners of MASCHINE. More information:
