Native Instruments has introduced the latest all-in-one standalone production unit they're calling MASCHINE+. Operating without a computer, it’s the first standalone MASCHINE product since it was launched in 2011. MASCHINE+ features the usual Maschine MK3 form factor, with 16 pads, two screens, macro knobs, but now features instruments and effects onboard the hardware rather than controlling the software.
MASCHINE+ is a sampler, a drum machine, a synth, and an on-stage superpower. In short, it’s whatever you make it. Leave the laptop behind, jam with your other gear, and create beats in minutes with a wealth of on-board sounds, instruments, and effects. It’s the iconic MASCHINE workflow, with fewer strings attached.
Hammer out beats, sequence melodies, create variations, and experiment with new ideas. The MASCHINE workflow is all about developing your music quickly, and MASCHINE+ is no exception.
MASCHINE+ is powered by a 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor, 4GB of RAM and features 32GB of onboard storage, plus a 64GB SD card that comes with the unit to load your own sounds and samples. The unit also is WiFi-enabled and once you activate the device you can download your existing Maschine Expansions, alongside any other plugins and sounds, directly to the device without a computer. MASCHINE+ includes Reaktor, Monark, Prism, Massive and FM8 synths as well as the Maschine Factory Library and Raum, Phasis and more built-in FX. Five expansions also come with the unit.
