      The MKB offers 16 touch pads that can be assigned different colors. Making it easy to know what was assign to them. Includes the Maschine 2.0 software so other than a computer there is nothing more you would need to get started. I'm a Staff reviewer at Sam Ash Music.

      Comments about Native Instruments MASCHINE MK2:

      I come from the world of MPC's. Over the last few years, I've tried moving over to or at least tried incorperating software into my workflow, but I always came back to my trusty old piece of hardware. The software route seemed to distract me from actual music production; I was too busy tweaking or setting up midi between my sampler, my computer, controllers etc.

      Then I gave the maschine a try. Now all I use is software! Theres obvious comparisons between Maschine and the MPC's or Roland MV's (16 pads, lots of buttons) but the most important of them all is the workflow. What I loved about my MPC was that I could use it with my eyes closed. If I had an idea in my head, I could translate it over to music quick and efficiently. And now I've found that in a software based controller.

      Aside from that, Maschine comes loaded with 8 gigs worth of sounds and a few KOMPLETE plug-ins. Speaking of KOMPLETE, if you add that to the arsenal, it seamlessly integrates with maschine so you can control all the parameters and play all the instruments directly off the pads.

      If you're looking to step your production game up, Native Instruments Maschine is Definatley a huge Upgrade for anyone who doesnt already own it.

        Comments about Native Instruments MASCHINE MK2:

        Being a guitar player myself, electronic music can be intimidating to get into. DAW's can be complex. Maschine makes it easy to create and improvise. You can load up individual sounds or entire kits. You can even load in VSTs/AUs, like the included Massive Synth, or even third-party VSTs/AUs. It's flexible and the possibilities are limitless.

          Comments about Native Instruments MASCHINE MK2:

          I was into making electronic music before they started calling it EDM, but I so wish it was as easy as it is today. I used to have multiple keyboards, drum machines and other devices just to make all the sounds and beats that this has built in! It's not fair! Gotta love technology! Now I can carry my "studio" in a laptop bag and take it wherever I wish. Definitely recommend to anyone who wants to start making music or even the seasoned veteran.
