Native Instruments has released the latest free update for their MASCHINE family of production tools. The MASCHINE 2.4.5 software provides a new set of features for working with samples within the MASCHINE software. Additional improvements include new ways to work within the Scene paradigm in MASCHINE, new options for audio export, default plug-in settings and more. Here's more details in NI's own words...

MASCHINE's latest update includes a new option for working with samples in Manual slicing mode. Users can now insert slice points on MASCHINE's pads while the sample is playing – a fast and intuitive way to begin the process of turning a sampled piece of audio into an original composition. A new Variable Scene Length feature allows Scene lengths to be set independent of the length of patterns, making polyrhythms easier to create and freeing producers from extending a pattern just to fit the scene it resides in. Internal plug-in settings are now savable as defaults, accelerating workflow by instantly loading with popular settings defined by the user.

In addition to these primary improvements, MASCHINE 2.4.5 also features the ability to export Scenes as audio, to export audio as lossless .AIFF files and browsing by product groups – especially useful when searching for third-party plug-ins using the Native Kontrol Standard® (NKS) file format.

Also new in 2.4.5

  • Export audio in AIFF format
  • Scene Export: Split by Scenes lets you export individual scenes for use as audio loops
  • Automatically export the entire song range without setting a loop range first
  • Eraser Tool now deletes a divider between slices instead of merging two slices

  • Added a field in preferences for custom names for export
  • "Slice" Button renamed to "Split" and turns into "Slice" when a slice is played back
  • Added a Loop control to the Transport in the software to enable and disable Loop playback
  • Browse directly from KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series keyboard using the new Hardware Browse mode
