Primed for Efficient Mobile Production
With its streamlined interface and compact size, the Native Instruments Maschine Mikro Mk3 is optimized for making music on your laptop. You'll find all of your most-used controls right at your fingertips. Play in your sounds with the 16 performance pads, now larger for more enjoyable playability. Use the Smart Strip to strum and bend sounds, or get creative with Maschine's Perform FX. Complete with full versions of Massive, Monark, and Reaktor Prism, the Native Instruments Maschine Mikro production package is primed for mobile music making.
Unbelievably flexible music-creation software environment
Looping, slicing, step sequencing, MPC-style recording, scene sequencing — it's all possible with Native Instruments' Maschine environment! Run Maschine as a plug-in in your favorite DAW, or run it in standalone mode and use it to host your favorite VST and AU plug-ins. What's more, Maschine Mikro Mk3 comes loaded with the same amazing content library that comes with Maschine, including three acclaimed Native Instruments synthesizer plug-ins.
Powerful hands-on hardware controller
Maschine's claim to fame extends beyond its powerhouse sampling and sequencing software. Tight hardware integration makes using Maschine an incredible tactile experience. Maschine Mikro Mk3 gives you much of this same hardware integration as Maschine, but in a smaller, more streamlined format. What's great is that Native Instruments gave Maschine Mikro Mk3 a complete set of navigation and function controls, as well as a large-sized set of velocity-sensitive, color-coded pads, so even though it's smaller than the original Maschine controller, you still get an amazing hands-on experience.
The ever-evolving world of Maschine
Whether they're software-based or standalone hardware, most music creation systems remain largely unchanged once they've been released — but not Maschine! Since the launch of Maschine, Native Instruments has released several major upgrades, including advanced sampling functions, VST and AU plug-in hosting, and NIS sound format browsing. With the jump to Machine 2.x, you get even more production power than ever before, including multicore support, effects sidechaining, a DAW-style mixer, and much more.
