"Maschine remains, as before, a refreshing and uncluttered alternative to making music with a DAW. Once I was done colouring in my drums, I wrote two songs in as many evenings, which is unusually productive (for me) these days!" - Sound on Sound
"Maschine´s pads have always been supremely playable, and Maschine mkII is even more so. With the velocity sensitivity cranked up, even the lightest of touches are effective, yet there´s never any crosstalk or double triggering - it plays beautifully[...]You´d be hard pushed to argue that this isn´t the best version yet" - Future Music
"A hybrid of software and hardware that makes the learning curve and workflow of the Maschine’s drum station a breeze[..]Being able to crossover seamlessly lets you tailor the way you make music yourself without feeling trapped in the confines of an external piece of hardware"- EarMilk
