Hardware


By combining the full-featured MASCHINE software with a streamlined and compact controller, MASCHINE MIKRO makes the acclaimed tactile and intuitive music creation approach of MASCHINE available at a significantly reduced physical footprint and price. At the same time, the new 1.7 software version provides advanced integration with the instruments and effects in the KOMPLETE 8 and KOMPLETE 8 ULTIMATE bundle both for MASCHINE and MASCHINE MIKRO users.

MASCHINE MIKRO is based on a highly portable controller that provides hands-on control of the central MASCHINE features at two-thirds of the size and weight of the full-sized hardware. Utilizing a single display and a dynamically assigned high-resolution master encoder to enable its compact footprint, the bus-powered MIKRO controller retains the distinctive full-sized 4x4 matrix of pressure-sensitive, dynamically backlit MASCHINE drum pads with their acclaimed response and feel.

MASCHINE MIKRO includes the full-featured MASCHINE software with its versatile pattern-based live and step sequencing, VST and AU plug-in hosting, real-time audio recording, sample editing and advanced multi-effects. The MIKRO version also contains the full 6 GB MASCHINE sound library, expandable with the series of MASCHINE EXPANSIONS, as well as the free KOMPLETE ELEMENTS sound collection. With the new 1.7 software version, both MASCHINE and MASCHINE MIKRO now also benefit from advanced integration with KOMPLETE 8 and KOMPLETE 8 ULTIMATE, providing advanced sound browsing and parameter mapping for all instruments and effects contained in the bundle.

One assumes that the cost of one of these for people who already have Maschine and want an extra travel version would be less, since you've already bougth the software, etc.

I just got Maschine not too long ago, but this looks right up my alley since I'm only using it for quick sequencing in Cubase.

If anyone wants an almost new Big Bro with matching white overlay protector, let me know.

Yeah, having a second maschine is always a good idea. The more the better

I think the controller only option will be a great idea for those who already have the big brother.

Firewire????

I think NI should introduce Firewire connection to the Machine Mikro

Why? It's just a midi controller.

One smart move I'd expect from NI is if they made a knobs controller section only at this point. Making Maschine being modular.
Would be very useful for the ones who formerly used Kore as a plugin hub.
Controller section only without pads.

This would be for traveling professionals only, I imagine. Can't imagine it would have much appeal for anyone else.

seems like this will cannibalize their product a lot. I know desk space is at a premium in my setup, seems like this is a good deal. I have plenty of other midi controllers for knobs and what not.

I guess the question is: Were you going to buy a Maschine before and this just saved you some money? Or were you not going to buy the Maschine before because it was too large and too expensive?

If you were already set to buy a larger Maschine and then bought this one instead 'cause it's smaller and cheaper, then that could be called cannibalization.

If not, then they have you as a new customer because of this design.

...which is their hope, of course.

The guy must have a macbook pro 15" and he's stuck with ridiculous input options , he thought he bought a pro laptop ...

If not that ....why this ridiculous question ....

To go back on the subject this will be portability VS control (knob controllling of plugins , parameters , presets filtering ect ...) great addition i think ...
But under than that i really hope they ugraded the quality of their USB connector ....fo real !!!

Oh maybe that's why the guy asked for firewire ?...

Hi,

I checked the crossgrade from the mikro to komplete with native. It is a no goer. Shame.

Cheers
