Here is a short video showing some info on the new features of Maschine 2
Time For Another Maschine 2 Preview!
I have been using Maschine 2.0 for a good bit now and am very familiar with it’s workflow and changes.
With Maschine 2.0 and the Studio controller about to hit the store shelves any day now. We have all heard about the great new 32 bit floating point sound engine, but I thought it might be nice to discuss some of the changes to workflow that you can expect.
Lets get right into it by talking about the sampler section
The first thing of note is now we are not limited to using only stereo inputs. This means we can sample mono sources with out having to convert later. On the studio controller we are given input selection buttons to allow us to directly select our source right from the hardware.
The four tabs in the left hand hardware screen are Record, Edit, Slice and Zone.
Under the Edit tab we are also given a new “Selection Range” this is a great feature in that it allows us to select a portion of the sample separate from the start and end points and loop points and apply functions such as time stretching or normalization to just that selection. you can pre hear the selection range from the software by clicking play icon next to the file name. very good for checking selections without screwing up your start and end points.
Maschine 2.0 and The Maschine Studio
A short preview and initial thoughts
October first 2013 Native Instruments dropped a bomb on the heads of the beat creation world.
With the first announcement video, a very slick video HERE that got the forums and social media drooling for more.
What was this? A new maschine hardware unit, and a rewritten software engine to the beloved Maschine software.
The first thing that is instantly noticeable about the new hardware is the luscious new screens. Hi-res screens that look similar to smart phone screens with gorgeous graphical displays allowing us to now see everything from the arranger, to the sample editing, to mapping etc.
These screens providea significant improvement over the previous MK2 hardware screens. Now sample editing is gorgeous with beautiful looking waveform displays and zooming that is highly detailed. No desire to look up to your monitor at all.
Play heads scroll quickly across the screen with no trails or signs of low quality refresh rates. I noticed no color bleeding or other issues common to low quality screens.
After a anxious wait, Maschine 2.0 has finally be announced!
Along with a new Software update. A new controller has come on the scene as well! the Maschine studio!
Here are some pics to wet your thirsty eyes!
