Native Instruments Maschine Mk2

Native Instruments takes the original maschine controller, sticks it in a boxing ring with the Traktor Kontrol F1 and watches as they pulverise each other into a multicoloured lovechild that is Maschine Mk2!

Native Insturments Maschine Mk2 comes in Original and Mikro varieties and not only do you now have multicoloured pads, there is also the option of a white unit.

There’s also the long awaited V1.8 software which finally adds timestretch functionality inside the maschine software. In fact, it seems to inherit Kontakt’s valve and tape saturators and Transient Master effects too.

This drum machine/controller tool needs no introduction and since it’s launch has become a bit of a classic already.

Native Instruments Maschine Mikro

 Maschine Mikro


The baby brother of the family still offers the same great sounds as the bigger model but cuts down the number of dials available to the end user. In real terms you keep much of the same great functionality but have to use various short cuts to get around. This makes the Mikro more suitable for the studio producers than the more live friendly Maschine, but is still guarenteed to rock your setup.


Available now for £199
