MASCHINE STUDIO is the ultimate instrument for blazing-fast groove production.  Start working on the hardware and the ultra-intuitive workflow quickly becomes part of your muscle memory.  Devote all your time to making the music you want to make, not learning the tools you use to make it.

MASCHINE STUDIO's luxurious layout lets you control the software functions from the hardware with dedicated controls– no switching menus or navigating complex key commands.  This is full-time creative flow.

ADVANCED PROCESSING

MASCHINE 2.0 makes you faster.  A top-of-the-line audio engine saves resources while delivering the highest audio quality possible.  32-bit float internal summing gives your tracks a shine you'll instantly notice.  Advanced multi-core technology runs multiple processes in parallel, dividing complex tasks between your computer's cores.  Run more plug-ins.  Mix with ease.  Load up even more sounds on unlimited groups, and so much more.

The result is the most responsive, fluid, and musical MASCHINE software ever.

WORKING IN MASCHINE

BROWSING

MASCHINE STUDIO's ultra-fast browsing gives your creativity no time to slow down.  Do all your browsing directly on MASCHINE STUDIO's two high-resolution color screens – any project, group, sound, instrument, effect or sample at your fingertips without ever thinking about the computer.

Find your sounds fast with MASCHINE 2.0's tag-based attribute browser.  Load KOMPLETE Instruments and Effects with ultra-clear product icon views from MASCHINE STUDIO's screens.  And when you're head-deep in sound design, MASCHINE lets you tag your own sounds and samples for lightning-fast retrieval later – fast, complete immersion in your personal sound world.

THE MIXER

Polish your tracks to perfection with the professional audio mixer in MASCHINE 2.0.  Tweak volume, pan, solo or mute with ultimate ease.  See group and individual track levels clearly on meters complete with peak level indicators.  Adjust levels on any group of sounds with one knob – simply select the desired channels, then turn the knob under the displays to adjust.

MASCHINE 2.0 delivers a new paradigm in signal routing.  Unlimited sound groups let you manage even the most demanding projects.  Two aux sends per channel let you freely route sounds anywhere in your project.  Send them to a simple effect or route them to multiple effect chains across several channels.  Best of all, you see plug-ins and insert effects directly on the hardware.

ARRANGING

MASCHINE adapts to your workflow.  16 ultra-sensitive pads deliver classic groovebox feel with tons of power on tap.  Get full velocity control, pad link, advanced note repeat, plus swing controls for sounds, groups, and the global project.  Color-code your sounds and see your entire sonic palette at a glance.

A clip-based pattern sequencer with full visual feedback means your ideas come together fast.  See the full pattern in MASCHINE's left display while the right display follows your work with precision detail.  Edit patterns, nudge notes, change velocity, and more with 8 display knobs, dedicated edit buttons, and MASCHINE STUDIO's jog wheel without ever looking at a computer screen.

An ultra-powerful step sequencer gives you another way to sculpt your grooves to perfection.  Drop in sounds precisely where you want them and automate pitch, volume, LFO or any other parameter per step for incredibly intricate and musical results in record time.

SAMPLING IN MASCHINE

SAMPLE

MASCHINE STUDIO's two high-resolution color displays give you all you need for ultra-accurate sampling.  The left screen always gives you a full overview of the sample you're editing.  The right screen shows you the detailed view.  Parameter knobs directly under the waveform mean you never break your editing focus by having to look at the computer.

Sample any source no matter the size – length and number of samples are only limited by your computer's RAM.  Get up to 64 voice polyphony for each sound, plus choke, legato, and glide control.  Vintage MPC 60 and SP1200 sampling modes deliver the feel of classic drum machines with all the advantages of modern software.  And new 8-point sample interpolation is twice as accurate as MASCHINE 1, delivering incredible sample quality.

SLICE

Slice your samples with laser-like precision.  Find the flavor that fits you best with four different modes.

Detect Mode detects your sample's transients and creates slices based on sensitivity settings.  With automatic zero-point detection, MASCHINE 2.0 positions markers at the point where the sound wave crosses the zero axis so every slice is pop- and click-free.

Grid Mode slices your samples according to grid divisions you select.  The slices are then cut on the grid itself.

Split Mode slices the sample into equal parts.  Select from 4, 8, 16 or 32 slices per sample.

Manual Mode lets you add slices anywhere in the sample.  Set any amount of slice markers per sample – great for easily adding slice markers to an entire song and not just a defined region.

MASCHINE makes it easy to demo your slices by automatically assigning each slice to one of MASCHINE's 16 high-sensitivity pads.  Quickly cycle through them and make adjustments on the fly on 8 display knobs.

A new feature in MASCHINE 2.0 is the ability to adjust start and end markers of a slice without affecting the markers of adjacent slices – a powerful addition with massive creative potential.

EDIT

Import REX2 and MPC® sample formats or import your personal sample library.  MASCHINE STUDIO handles it all easily.  Get creative with a full toolbox of destructive editing features including truncate, normalize, reverse, cut, copy, paste, fade-in, fade-out, silence, DC correct, and duplicate. MASCHINE's acclaimed offline timestretching and pitchbending with automatic beat detection deliver unrivaled sample quality.

DRUM SYNTH

MASCHINE 2.0 sets a new benchmark in software drum synthesis.  Create your own perfectly-tuned electronic and acoustic drum sounds in truly peerless sound quality.  Five monophonic drum plug-ins built exclusively for MASCHINE 2.0, each with several unique algorithms give you any percussive sound you need.  All fully tweakable, automatable from the hardware, and perfectly integrated into MASCHINE STUDIO – with the quality that comes from NI's acclaimed DSP expertise.
 
KICK PLUG-IN

Each of the kick plug-in’s eight sound engines delivers unique, powerful low end.  Three engines are based on classic analog machines made famous over thirty years of electronic music.  They deliver sounds fat and punchy to deep and dusty, and everything in between.

The other five go far beyond electronic sounds to deliver some of the most realistic acoustic-sounding kicks you've ever heard.  A broad sweet spot means you get pro sound no matter what you dial in.
 
SNARE PLUG-IN

The snare plug-in features nine different sound engines.  Create any imaginable electronic snare – the snare plug-in does thin, harsh, bold, deep, and filtered with equal ease.  Acoustic-like sounds are the sonic wonders of this plug-in – recreate not only the sound of real snare drums, but also completely change their character and tuning with the turn of a knob.

The snare plug-in also features a clap mode for adding this staple sound of electronic music to your tracks in peerless quality.
 
HI-HAT PLUG-IN

The hi-hat plug-in delivers the full range of hi-hat sounds from three different engines.

Get classic analog hi-hats, digital, robotic sounds from a complex oscillator, or ultra-modern synthesis from Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) data of analyzed and reconstructed hi-hat samples.  This data gives you ultra-powerful synthesis without having to use samples at any stage of sound production.  And quick tweaks deliver other percussion possibilities outside the range of simple hi-hat sounds for endless versatility.
 
TOM PLUG-IN

Three tom engines let you intuitively craft a full set of toms fast.  Digital sounds from percussive to bell-like to completely alien.  And acoustic sounds so warm and fat you won’t believe they're not samples.

Added control over pitch bend and mute parameters give you a flexible set of sounds that are ultra-intuitive to create.
 
PERCUSSION PLUG-IN

The percussion plug-in features three sound engines and a world of possibility.  Design any additional percussion your project needs from bell-like and metallic to sub-like and twisted with one engine.  A second engine is dedicated to shaker and maraca sounds.  The third is capable of rich, orchestral timpani sounds ready to add big symphonic percussion to any production.

The sounds are intended to be played across the keyboard for incredible pitched percussion and unique melodic textures.
