All labelling has been moved on to the pads themselves to facilitate this. The span between the centres of the pads has been kept the same, so it should feel completely natural moving from the earlier models.
Impressively, the response seems to be completely even across the whole area of each pad, so you can take full advantage of the new size. They are simply brilliant. While the KKS has returned to traditional wheels, it makes total sense to get performance control on to the pad controller via touch.
And this time the designers have really nailed it. The strip has several modes. By default, Performance FX are in Touch Enable mode, so you can drop in and add momentary interest then let go and return to the clean signal.
Screen Scene The most prominent new feature shared by the two new controllers is the dual display section.
The screens have the same size and resolution and functionality as those found on the Maschine Studio, but with increased brightness and colour saturation, despite the reduction in power consumption that allows you to work unplugged. All the screen functionality of my MkI is present and works the same way, but with more space and enhanced colour graphics. You can toggle between viewing Sections the high-level arrangement timeline and Patterns your clips and their individual notes.
In Section mode the left and right cursors select one section, or you use the pads to jump directly to any position. Switching to Pattern mode displays the pattern from the active Group in the current Section or Scene.
Design Of The Times It would seem that one of the goals of the new hardware is to expose and streamline features and workflows that have developed recently in Maschine. Another innovation that came with Jam was the Ideas view, which separates Maschine into two workspaces: Ideas, where you create Scenes from your pool of Patterns and Groups; and the Arranger, where you place Scenes into Sections.
On the MkIII you can work like you did in the past, but Shift-Scene toggles you between the two workspaces in the software.
The new hardware incorporates the latest Maschine features like Ideas View and Locks. Joy Division Both units feature the new 4-Directional Push Encoder design, that replaces the older pairing of encoder and directional buttons.
The encoder is also used in the mixer, where it can navigate between tracks, jump between the Groups and Sounds mixers, and set levels and pans. It also has the same dedicated mode buttons as the MkII. Maschine stand-alone has its own Cue system which lets you toggle mixer channels between the Master and Cue busses. Sample and patch preview, and the metronome, are also automatically routed to the Cue bus. It would have been useful to be able mirror the two pairs of output channels, and apparently this feature is in the works.
But what the screens bring to the table far outweighs this. Likewise, the chunky Mod and Pitch wheels might not look as neat as the previous touch strips, but the feel and playability are superior.
A notable design improvement is to the Light Guides. There is no doubt in my mind that if i were to somehow lose my maschine i would download another one as soon as possible. I have not used any other drum machines besides the maschine and i do not plan on ever doing so. It is very affordable and can be a great addition to your studio setup.
Even though this is rather newer unit from Native Instruments, I think they have worked out all of the kinks and bugs because I have not had a single issue with it. The drivers are stable, and the software and hardware integration are perfect.
All of the general functions of the Maschine Mikro 2 are easy to understand and use. The manual is pretty thick for this product, but it is in depth and will answer any questions or issues that you might be having. I have only been using it for a little more than 5 months now but I have had zero issues with it.
I use it almost every single day and even take it with me to different places. I needed a reliable system like the Maschine Mikro 2.
I was looking for something that I could take with me everywhere and it would work hassle free. I am very happy that I chose to download the Maschine Mikro 2. This is a great unit smaller brother of the maschine. It installs just as easy as the original maschine production center. Very easy to setup and configure.
I was a bit worried about the functions crossing over considering the Mikro Maschine doesn't have as much space or buttons as the bigger unit. Native Instruments compensated well those fitting everything in secondary screen options. The manual is easy to understand if you happen to download this unit second hand or simply don't enjoy reading the manual you can open youtube and find a lot tutorials there not to mention there are a lot of people online offering free tutorials for mschine so you should be able to catch on pretty fast to the workflow.
Now I've haven't been using this unit very long I'm use to using the main Maschine unit but the Mikro performs just as well, it's just as stable and just as fun to use as the original maschine. One thing I did notice is the pads feel a little bit better which is good. I hope they offer pad upgrades for both units in the future as I like the feel of the akai pads but I love the response of maschines pads I feel if they released this at the same time I would have gotten this unit because of the cheaper price but i do understand the business aspect of the release later rather than sooner It comes over around 6 gigs of quality sounds which is great.
Another thing I like about this unit is it use the same exact software which means project files are cross compatible no matter what size maschine you are using The installation is no problem!
Here's the default one! PDF For an expert like me, we found it very quickly, but there will still even a few shortcuts that will fetch it.
Because learning by switching to the pdf software it is crap! The software is absolutely beautiful and ultra clear and ultra-smooth. A small midi keyboard can be a practical side to compose melodies more complex, but not necessary, because the mode keyboard works perfectly. No weight does the opposite it in terms of production and especially sound. The sound is huge and the word is, if you pay or extension of sound, it is delirious, meat I speak in particular of extension which I reserve the name, because I'm the jealously guarded secret.
Extension costing 49 Euro, there are 7 your registration you receive an online voucher of 25 Euros so the first 24 Euros is a gift look at the demo on Youtube RSS. Rpport the money is more than excellent, No Latency, jump on Pattern Group kit sounds, mute it solo with ease.. Even for the Live is perfect you need just a little guy controlling alkai PD8 if you want to live tweeker effects Currently seen the arrival of the mk2 destock it was euros and at this price it is A Must!
I precise that the only novelty of the MK2 Maschine pads are color groups and it is not really something that I will miss for nomads like me, my maschine Mikro is perfect for a less nomadic big Maschine is even better, but except for the effects controllers, 2 maschines are Identical! I referrai this choice one million times! This is the default bullet Zero!
The installation is done it without problem? Yes, it installs the software and driver, and one branch is left! The general configuration is easy?
It takes a little time to adapt, to understand the principle of the Maschine software but it's not very complicated, being a beginner, I took an afternoon to throw me and it's good! Have you encountered any incompatibilities? The manual is clear and sufficient? Asrock GX extreme 3 Processor: Phenom II X4 3. The software runs he correctly on this configuration?
Yes, I is not no latency problem, loads of virtual instruments are fast etc. Beug Accun or blue screen, everything is very stable!
A bit expensive for me, but I am very very my investment, it was worth it!
