"Maschine 2.0 is the bomb with any controller, but if you can afford it, Maschine Studio is the one to go for." - Computer Music
"The build quality is very impressive—it feels very substantial, and that´s important for drum pad gear (which generally takes more of a beating than other types of gear). Its larger size and an integrated stand provide excellent ergonomics and make it a good choice for the spot behind a keyboard and mouse" - Resident Advisor
"Beautiful dual color screens. Loads of hands-on control. Easy visibility of arrangements and waveforms in color. Three MIDI out ports[...] Makes powerful beat-making faster than ever [..] Unparalleled bundled sound value" - KeyboardMag
"A hardware and software combination that feels like hardware. The screens and larger range of dedicated operation buttons seriously improve workflow and the new features of Maschine 2.0 make this a promising new era for the Maschine family"- Music Tech
"NI has really outdone itself with Maschine Studio. It manages that trickiest of things: to add features and functionality while maintaining ease of use. The hardware is beautifully laid out with no compromises and of excellent build quality. The software is slick and powerful and the communication between the two is seamless" - Ask Audio Mag
