Maschine Studio Preview featured on American Musical


Rise of the Maschine

When Native Instruments first introduced Maschine to the audio world a few years ago, it was a new concept that proved to be an instant hit. Since that initial introduction, Maschine has risen to become the premier hybrid music production tool for both studio and live performance.

Taking advantage of tactile hardware control and the flexibility of an ever evolving software platform, NI showed that a perfect blend of software and hardware provides the key to true creative expression.

So imagine your favorite tool got a massive amount of new features along with a sexy new sidekick to go with it. Thatโ€™s exactly what Native Instruments has decided to do with the Maschine 2.0 software and their brand new flagship controller, the Maschine Studio.

Just some of the exiting new features include:

  • color screens on the Maschine Studio
  • multi core support in the software
  • mixer view
  • sidechaining
  • drum synth
  • more flexible sample editing
  • internal midi/audio routing
  • import of user and third party presets for Komplete instruments

  1. I don’t know….. I might have to replace my REN with this. There’s too many features I would love to use this has that the REN doesn’t….I mean WOW!. Great job NI. Loved your review as well SJ!

    That was a dope Maschine Studio/2.0 review. Now I heard you say that as of 2.0 that NOW you can actually route multiple MIDI channels to 1 instance of a multitimbral plug-in. This is the thing that almost made me grab the MPC Ren if NI didn’t “get it together”. How exactly does the internal MIDI routing work on the new 2.0?

    • Thanks fam, it’s pretty easy to route, but honestly, I find myself just using multiple instances anyway. However, I do this in daws as well, as long as I have the ram and the cpu I’m good ๐Ÿ™‚
