Native Instruments has released the MASCHINE 2.2 software – a major update of the integrated hardware/software groove production system. New features include Smart Play, adding new melodic capabilities, unified sound browsing, full KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series keyboard integration, Light Guide synchronization, and more to the MASCHINE workflow. The MASCHINE 2.2 update is free for all MASCHINE 2 software owners. MASCHINE owners not currently using MASCHINE 2 can upgrade for 50% off the regular retail price until December 12th, 2014. Here's the details in NI's own words...

The MASCHINE 2.2 update adds a powerful new melodic dimension to the MASCHINE workflow. The Smart Play™ features include a new scale and chord engine, as well as a fully-functional arpeggiator. Producers can select from a range of popular musical scales and chords, and perform them into their productions directly on MASCHINE's 16 high-sensitivity pads. The arpeggiator allows precise control of direction, octave span, and subdivision – its output is also recorded directly into MASCHINE's Pattern Editor, providing easy post-performance editing of the note sequences. The update also unlocks MASCHINE STUDIO's touch-sensitive knobs for an even faster, touch-and-see workflow.

MASCHINE 2.2 also brings full KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series integration to MASCHINE. Producers can browse instruments and effects in the MASCHINE software directly from an S-Series keyboard. Once an instrument or effect is loaded key parameters automatically map to the display knobs on both pieces of hardware. The luxurious Fatar keybeds add a new level of fluid expression. Light Guide™ also synchronizes perfectly with MASCHINE's pads, giving producers the same level of feedback on both pieces of hardware when switching from beats to melodic playing.

Pricing and Availability:
The MASCHINE 2.2 update, as well as all future MASCHINE 2 updates, is free for all current MASCHINE 2 owners.
