D/B Tech Feature: Maschine Mikro

Hot on the heels of recent software updates which have brought exciting new features such as plugin hosting, Native Instruments’ groove sequencer Maschine takes another giant leap forward with the new Mikro controller.

Ideal for newcomers to Maschine or experienced users looking for an additional device with more portability, this highly versatile controller and its integrated application are the ideal tool for all serious beat producers.

MASCHINE MIKRO is the perfect entry into the world of MASCHINE, giving you tactile, hands-on control for beat production, sampling and performance. This latest addition to the family has the same powerful software and 6 GB+ sample library as its big brother, as well as the same responsive pads on a more compact and portable controller.

Jeremy Ellis on Maschine Mikro

MASCHINE MIKRO makes a perfect addition for any production setup – get hands-on with your rhythms and grooves both in the studio and on the stage. Besides the seemless integration of Maschine’s hardware and software components, the “MaMi” is a fully functional midi controller in its own right, so all 16 pads can bee freely assigned to a programme of your choice.
