MASCHINE combines powerful software with a hardware-based workflow inspired by classic grooveboxes. 16 multi-color pads, a master push encoder, and eight display knobs provide intuitive control of all software features with tactile immediacy. MASCHINE 2 software delivers a pattern-based sequencer, high-performance sampler, and professional studio instruments and effects. The software also features five exclusive drum synth plug-ins capable of a wide range of sounds – all fully-adjustable and automatable directly from MASCHINE's hardware. A new 8+ GB sound library of professional, production-ready sounds adds even more sound for beat makers to explore. MASCHINE 2 software's tag-based browser and product icon display allow at-a-glance browsing of all KOMPLETE 9 Instruments and Effects.
KOMPLETE 9 is a comprehensive creative production suite with 33 products, 12,000 sounds, and 120 GB of sampled content for both studio and stage. Among its 33 award-winning instruments and effects are samplers such as KONTAKT 5 and BATTERY 4. The flagship modular synthesizer REAKTOR 5, which also hosts the dynamic MONARK, PRISM, and SPARK instruments, and renowned synths MASSIVE, FM8, and ABSYNTH 5 are also included. The updated SOLID MIX SERIES gives users a complete studio effects suite for creating polished, release-ready productions. And GUITAR RIG 5 PRO provides a wealth of amps and effects for use on guitar and bass or for creative sound design. When loading a KOMPLETE 9 Instrument or Effect in MASCHINE, key parameters automap to MASCHINE's eight display knobs for immediate, hands-on sound adjustment.
