Expandable Memory 

MASCHINE+ ships with a 64 GB SD card for storing your own content. For the sampling aficionados with larger libraries, it’s possible to expand this up to 1 TB, or even more with a hard drive via USB.* *Coming soon via update.

One Touch Control

Less menu diving and more music making. MASCHINE+ is designed to make switching pad modes, note repeats, adding groups, and other workflow essentials as easy as hitting a button.

Power Under The Hood 

MASCHINE+ packs a quad-core processor and 4 GB dual channel DDR3L RAM. That means more tracks, more sounds, and more effects – soak your sounds in reverb, or leave them dripping with delay as much as you need.

Smart Strip

Strum notes, crank up Perform FX, pitchbend, and modulate sounds for intuitive expression. The Smart Strip also shows you the relative position in a clip when laying down a new pattern.

Expressive Pads

Ultra-sensitive and fun to play, this is where the magic happens. For finger drumming that sounds like a real kit, nuanced keys, or strummed sounds, they’re capable of all kinds of articulation.

High Resolution Displays 

Find sounds, slice samples, chain up effects, edit notes, and arrange tracks. The MASCHINE+ displays pick up where muscle memory drops off, for deeper tweaks and changes to your project.

Do It Standalone 

Standalone means more focus, more freedom, and more music making. Plug in, power up, and get creating straight away in the embedded MASCHINE+ production environment – from first ideas to finished tracks. Dial in effects to tweak your sounds, or sample audio and make it your own with an intuitive interface designed to keep the creative juices flowing. And if you want to bring your ideas into a DAW, copy them over, and boot up the MASCHINE software on your computer to pick up where you left off.

Sample And Sequence Everything 

Whether you’re digging records or ripping radio edits, record any sound into MASCHINE+ and quickly chop and stretch the results into your own custom kits. Or transform and twist them in real-time with the Audio plug-in. The same goes for guitars, vocals, drums, and anything else – more sounds means more creative ways to make music.

Made To Be Played 

Bring real expression to live performances with intuitive control over your music – tap out beats, run arpeggiators, or tweak synth melodies in real time. MASCHINE+ is an intuitive live sequencer, a fully-fledged groovebox, and a powerful performance synthesizer rolled into one.

Introducing Clips 

Clips let you arrange your ideas with even more freedom. Create transitions across scenes, add unique variation to patterns, record MIDI directly into the full arrangement, and freely add audio wherever you need it. Once you’ve fleshed out your ideas, you can use MASCHINE+ as a powerful tool to push tracks past the finish line.

Connect And Control Your Setup 

Play and sequence outboard gear and capture the results, or manipulate external audio in real time with effects. MASCHINE+ can control, mix, and manipulate the rest of your setup with MIDI, line, and mic inputs to bring everything together instantly. And if you want to work with a computer, it doubles up as a classic MASCHINE controller too.

Synch And Add Sounds Wirelessly 

MASCHINE+ is Wi-Fi enabled, which means you can install new sounds, instruments, and effects at the touch of a button, without a computer in sight. When it comes to jamming with others or playing out live, keep in sync with other music apps, DAWs, and compatible gear with Ableton Link.

The Pads 

Big and in your face, but endlessly expressive – the MASCHINE+ pads are great for drumming up rhythms, working out melodies, and playing chords. Use them like a keyboard with real expression, fire up the step sequencer if that’s your thing, or slice samples across them to create custom kits in seconds.

The Screens 

Find the sounds you need. Choose a plug-in, add effects, chain and tweak them. Slice samples with surgical precision for custom chops. Arrange, monitor, and mix your music. Two hi-res screens keep the MASCHINE+ workflow fast, fluid, and versatile with visual, dynamic control when sketching ideas, fleshing them out, and mixing them down.

One Touch Workflow 

Pad Input Modes

Go from drumming patterns to playing melodies, sequencing synths, and one-touch chords in a snap.

Lock Button 

Hit the lock button, go wild with effects, tweaks, and more, before hitting it again to reset your tweaks for dynamic transitions.

Macro Button 

Touch a knob, assign your favorite parameter, and get tweaking.

Note Repeat 

Big, easy to find, and great for fills or arpeggios when sketching ideas or performing live.

Fixed Velocity 

Program accents and ghost notes quickly with 16 fixed velocity levels or get a smooth, constant volume when triggering samples.

Transport Control 

Essential transport functions, as well as mute control are a click away.

The Touch Encoders 

Dial in effects and modulation, touch to browse tags when searching for the right sound, or get hands-on with macro controls when performing. Context-sensitive touch encoders keep tweaking quick, and sound sculpting hands-on.

The Smart Strip 

Small but mighty, the Smart Strip can be used for the classic pitch modulation you’d find on a keyboard, as well as modulating other controls, an expressive way to use Perform FX, and to strum chords and samples like a guitar for both effective realism and left-field creations.

Sampling 

From crate-digging treasures to vocals and field recordings, sampling is ingrained in MASCHINE’s DNA. Hook up your sound source, enter the sampling mode, and stretch, chop, or loop audio in a matter of seconds.

Song Mode 

Take ideas, mix them up, swap them about, and structure your tracks straight from MASCHINE+. Song Mode is great for building the final structure for a track, or for working out ways to progress a live set.

A curated selection of legendary synths, sampled instruments, studio effects, and Expansions that bring the noise to MASCHINE+. 

The Synths 

Think up a sound and dial it in. As well as the MASCHINE Factory Library, MASCHINE+ includes four additional synths that cover everything you’d ever need. From subby bass to acid leads, expansive pads, funky low-end, and organic textures, these four sonic playgrounds have you covered.

Massive  

Genre-defining wavetable synth that’s great for bass, lead, and pad duties – from creamy analog sounds to unashamedly digital edge.

FM8

The brilliant, intricate sound of FM synthesis in an easy-to-use instrument with innovative advanced features when it’s time to dive deeper.

Prism

Unique modal synth and FX module capable of percussive keys, bells and plucks, as well as hard basses, piercing leads, and organic atmospherics.

Monark 

The kind of analog monosynths with a streamlined interface and infinite sweet spot. Perfect for rich, organic basses and full leads.

Reaktor And Kontakt Factory Selection 

Two collections full to the brim with innovative, cutting-edge sound that work seamlessly in standalone mode. REAKTOR Factory Selection packs innovative synths born in our DSP lab, including SPACE DRONE, NEWSCOOL, and LAZERBASS. KONTAKT Factory Selection includes a huge variety of sampled instruments that span a wide range of genres, styles and sounds.

Retro Machines 

16 definitive analog synths and keyboards, covering the classic, the idiosyncratic, and the exotic. Lovingly sampled, easy to play, and with advanced custom control.

The Effects

Do-it-all, high-fidelity reverb capable of everything from subtle space to complex, transformative sound design.

Phasis 

Add movement, character, and creative magic to input signals for both classic phasing sounds and previously-unheard effects.

Drum Synth Plug-Ins

Create your own perfectly-tuned electronic and acoustic drum sounds in truly peerless quality. Six monophonic drum plug-ins built exclusively for MASCHINE 2 give you any percussive sound you need. All fully tweakable, automatable from the hardware and built with NI's acclaimed DSP expertise:

KICK:

Nine engines deliver powerful low end. Four are based on classic analog machines - fat, puchy, deep, dusty and everything in between. The other five deliver some of the most realistic acoustic-sounding kicks you've ever heard. And a broad sweet spot means you get pro sound no matter what you dial in.

SNARE:

Thick, harsh, bold, deep, filtered – create any electronic snare imaginable. Or create breathtaking acoustic snare sounds and tweak with the total control that a real snare can’t give you. Nine engines to choose from, plus a dedicated clap engine for both electronic and acoustic claps.

HI-HATS:

No samples here. Three different engines produce the full range of hi-hat sounds, from classic analog hi-hats, digital, robotic sounds, or thick, crunchy sounds from a new, grain-based oscillator. And a few quick tweaks take you beyond simple hi-hat sounds, and deep into creative territory.

TOMS

Three engines let you 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 advanced parameters give you total flexibility. All on the hardware, and super intuitive.

PERCUSSION

Three engines, no limits. The fractal engine delivers electronic percussion, from bell-like and metallic to sub-heavy and twisted. The shaker engine gives you acoustic shakers and maracas, and the kettle engine offers rich, resonant timpani. All sounds are mapped across the keyboard for pitched percussion and melodic accents.

CYMBAL

The Crash engine delivers everything from a 909-like crash to more acoustic-sounding cymbals. The Ride engine can be adjusted to sound as if the cymbal is being struck on its edge or bell.

 

 

Bass Synth Plug-in 

Create rich bass tones with this monophonic bass synth, exclusive to MASCHINE. Design and shape with intuitive, fun, and fully-automatable controls, including filter, mod envelope, decay, drive, and glide time, directly from the hardware. Morph seamlessly between waveforms – from sine to saw to square – to create your own unique sounds, with no synth programming knowledge required. Or load any of the pro-designed presets to get studio-ready bass for any genre, from booming subs to dripping acid.

PERFORM FX

Enliven your sounds with MASCHINE 2.5 software's advanced Perform FX. Designed for spontaneous, tactile control in recording or live performance, these eight complex multi-effects alter motion, space, dynamics and more for added expression.

Filter
An analog-modeled High, Low, and Band-pass filter capable of yielding raw, natural-sounding results using saturation and resonance. Roll off the highs for a thick, murky veil, or use the resonance to create sounds that float into self-oscillation infinity.

Flanger
A comb filter effect with more than a few tricks up its sleeve. Get performance-ready flanger or phaser effects, or expose its wild side – setting higher decay and frequency values unleashes ping-pong delay-like flutter effects.

Burst Echo
A warm, versatile echo with plenty of character, designed for spontaneous splashes of echo. Strong, responsive attacks that taper off into hazy trails are perfect for dub and can also be tweaked for more extreme sound design.

Reso Echo
A complex resonant echo with advanced feedback and saturation that verge on psychedelic tendencies. Echoes range from a tight, punchy resonant hum to ambiguous howling sounds from another dimension.

Ring
Built on a carefully selected bank of ring modulators, Ring adds a bell-like quality to melodic sound sources. Using the additional plate reverb, tweak a knob or Smart Strip to hand-pick individual notes and keep them ringing into the stratosphere.

Stutter
Turn the intensity up, and down again with Stutter. This beat-mangling effect adds creative dynamics like glitches, fills, and expressive pitch-bending crescendos to drum patterns and more. 


Tremolo
A no-frills tremolo and vibrato effect that’s perfect for creating motion and wobble on the fly. Instantly add expression with multiple modes, Rate, and Depth ranges, and use the Stereo knob to create auto-pan motion effects.

 

Scratcher
Scratcher warps your sounds with turntable motion effects that can get other-worldly. Apply a ‘brake’ to a sound, then scratch with it – just like on vinyl. Or use the pitch shifter delay to thicken the sound and create alien-sounding sweeps.
