Native Instruments Announce Maschine Mikro

Small AND powerful      05/09/11

Whats going on? Its a bit of a gear-fest right now, with way more hardware being released than one would expect at this time of year- Native Instruments have joined the fray with the all new MASCHINE MIKRO - a cut-down hardware companion for the full MASCHINE software production environment.  With an expected price of $399/€349, its a more affordable way to enter the MASCHINE ecosystem.

Simultaneously, 1.7 of the MASCHINE software has been announced to integrate with the instruments and effects of Komplete 8 and Komplete 8 Ultimate.

Enjoy this stellar performance from freak-fingered Jeremy Ellis while you read the  Offical word:

MASCHINE MIKRO is based on a highly portable controller that provides hands-on control of the central MASCHINE features at two-thirds of the size and weight of the full-sized hardware. Utilizing a single display and a dynamically assigned high-resolution master encoder to enable its compact footprint, the bus-powered MIKRO controller retains the distinctive full-sized 4x4 matrix of pressure-sensitive, dynamically backlit MASCHINE drum pads with their acclaimed response and feel.

 

Theres also news of a MASCHINE iOS app  that:

"brings intuitive groove creation to the iPhone and iPod touch platform. With four tracks, audio sampling, high-quality effects and an expandable arsenal of professional instruments and drum sounds from the regular MASCHINE library, iMASCHINE allows users to sketch grooves on the go, and later transfer them into the full MASCHINE software for detailed editing and arrangement. iMASCHINE is planned for release through the Apple App Store in October."


MASCHINE MIKRO will be available in October for a suggested retail price of $399 / 349 EUR.

Will my Toshiba I3 work? 2.1 ghz, 500GB hardrive, 4 gigs of RAM, I don't know yet how to find ASIO on it or load it if need be. I have been a mac guy for 15 years, except for work.
