Essential piece of the studio. Gotta have it.
I love this thing it's very easy to create ideas and songs with..
Great tool for producing great staff as well
With its technological advancement, music has never been much easier with thousands of sounds right on the fingertips.
I started out with a Mikro 2 as an introduction to Native Instruments then moved up to this beast. I was definitely not disappointed. Tons of great sounds, even TR808 patches! Still learning everything it can do, I'll be breaking into sampler mode soon (yes, Sampler!). All in all I'm happy with it, my only fear is that they'll come out with a new one before I master those one! 😆😎
I own both the Mk2 and the new Mk3. I have to say it's a really nice upgrade from the previous controller that I loved. I am coupling this with Ableton live as my DAW. You can really work out some nice stuff with the built-in sampler and slicers and the playback of the slices is delicious with these big pads. I love the Lock button that helps to try any knob and be creative with your sounds and be able to roll back to the default sound with one click. The new touchstrip is also a fun addition to add some random variations in your patterns, and the fact that there is a dedicated chords button is great for people like me who are not trained pianists. Price point is great as this is coupled with Maschine 2 software which is really a great tool to create music and the library of sounds it comes with is pretty amazing.
Its a great way to start creating music without having to think too much. You can start a song in less than a minute. Machine is absolutely a must !!
The MK3 Groove Production Studio is a must have for any producer. This unique controller gives you the ability to easily lay down tracks, make beats, design your mix, and make the music you have in your head! It's 16 velocity and touch sensitive pads can be used to loop, sample, and build your ideas out in an interactive and fun way. The MK3 GPS comes with a huge library of sounds to play and incorporate into your mix. The software it comes with, MASSIVE, can also be incorporated into other DAWs as a plug-in, which gives you even more room to add your own creativity. This controller was easy to set up and is intuitive and user friendly. It took me around 4 or 5 days to get familiar with it in its entirety. All in all a great product and definitely something worth purchasing!
