Welp, Maschine MK3 has been announced. I was invited to NYC a few weeks ago to get an exclusive demo, as well as spend some time with Maschine Product Manager Chris LaPietra.
We talked about the development of the new Maschine MK3 and some of the features he is most excited about.
It’s always cool to get a peek into the mind of those that are created the tools we use, I hope you dig the video!
Let me know what you think about the Maschine MK3, what do you like what do you not like, what questions do you have?
More coverage to come of course, so stay tuned.
