But will these keyboards have tight integration with Maschine's workflow?
I wonder this because I don't see Maschine mentioned in the bundle deals.
Every song that I make doesn't involve Komplete... but every song I make "does" involve Maschine. So I would get a lot more use out of a keyboard controller that was first geared toward integrating with Maschine... and then secondly also working with Komplete.
But the flip side of that is... there's probably a lot more people who use Komplete but don't use Maschine... so I guess it makes more sense for the Keyboard to be geared more toward Komplete instead of Maschine.
Yeah, at first I was thinking it was about the same as Live + Push, but there's only one version of Push, the price from there depends on which version of Live you want. And it can go from a 64-note "keybed" to a drum machine with a sequencer in a flash.
But hell, with the Maschine Studio, NI showed they weren't afraid of putting out expensive and flashy controllers. I'm hoping this will be more than a cheap-feeling keyboard with the NI logo on it.
if komplete 10 is $500, then S25 would be $500, S49 $600, S61 $700, seems quite expensive to me. I bought my SL61 MKII for $500. You can only get a 25 key kb for the same price if you go NI. I would be more interested in a controller only version without the keys.
