Hey Hey…have you heard about Native Instruments Maschine newness? Wow this caught me off guard lol. It’s some of the same features with even better additions like color coded pads which match the colors on the scenes. One of the most sought additions is time-stretch and pitch shift. When I first saw the picture I thought” Ummn… I’m not going to upgrade it looks kinda too colorful”. Now I know that the colors have a very cool purpose.
Here are some of the new things included from the Native Instruments website:
Perform In Color
The new color-coding lets you ‘see’ your sounds, and it will turbo-charge your workflow.
Simply assign colors to the groups, sounds, patterns, and scenes, and see the pads and group buttons on the hardware light up in the same colors. Make your kick drums red, for example, and you’ll always know which pads play your kicks. Add some color to your performances!
And with the increased sensitivity of the new pads, you also have a new level of precision at your fingertips.
New Master Section
The Master section has been redesigned. Control volume, tempo and swing with the new multifunction master push encoder – select modes with the new toggle buttons and accurately click through values without having to look at the screen or display.
Navigating and scrubbing are much easier, and changing note pitch and detailed tweaking becomes extra-precise thanks to the encoder’s superb physical response.
Now with 47 white, backlit click-buttons and colored transport controls, the Mk2 hardware provides a wealth of physical and visual excitement for intuitive beat making.

This is really interesting! I am hoping Maschine owners are able to purchase the new controller separately with a little discount :). There are many new things to check out about Maschine including Os update, build, and effects:
Happy Beat Making To All!
