Native Instruments MASCHINE MIKRO Mk2 overview

  • 1Description

Packaged together by B&H for your convenience, the Native Instruments KOMPLETE 11 and MASCHINE MIKRO MK2 Kit bundles a MASCHINE MIKRO MK2 sequencer, sampler, and multi-effects unit with an upgrade edition of KOMPLETE 11 software. The software provides creative effects and virtual instruments for music production. The controller, compared to the MASCHINE MK3, is relatively compact and more portable than its larger sibling. It offers a way to play virtual instruments and implement KOMPLETE effects over MIDI, one that's suited to both production and live performance. The MASCHINE MIKRO MK2 comes with KOMPLETE software that can be further enhanced by the upgrade available in this bundle.

  • Native Instruments MASCHINE MIKRO MK2 Groove Production Studio (Black)

    The black Native Instruments MASCHINE MIKRO MK2 Groove Production Studio is designed for both Mac and Windows. The hardware interface features USB 2.0, 16 multi-color illuminated pads with velocity and aftertouch, 28 back-lit buttons, one endless encoder (30 steps) and one high-contrast, 128 x 64 pixel black-and-white display. MASCHINE MIKRO MK2 also supports several interfaces including stand-alone interfaces, VST, audio units, RTAS (Pro Tools 9 or higher), ASIO, CoreAudio and WASAPI.

    With the ability to act as a sequencer, sampler, VST/AU plug-in host and multi-effect unit, the MASCHINE MIKRO MK2 supports beat making, performance and more - all with the benefit of collaborative computer software. The software is stocked with a 6GB sample library that includes drum kits, synth sounds, loops and more. The touch sensitive pads make it easy to sequence drum patterns, bass lines, loops, etc. Plus, with color-coding, you can assign certain colors to certain instruments so you'll always know what's what without having to test it.

    The MASCHINE MIKRO MK2 provides the flexibility of computer-based music production with straightforward control for composing, performing, browsing, sampling, slicing, sound-shaping and tweaking effects. You can easily load your samples, effects and plug-ins through the software, and then control them with the pads. And, you can always expand your sounds with MASCHINE EXPANSIONS (sold separately).

    Key Updated Features

    Pads
    16 multi-colored, highly-sensitive back-lit, pads with velocity and after-touch
    Color Assignment
    Assign color coding throughout the library for 'visual tagging' which is also displayed on the pads. Make your kick drums red, for example, and you'll always know which pads play your kicks
    MASSIVE Synth
    Full version of the MASSIVE synth plug-in is included and it's parameters can be automated within the MASCHINE 1.8 software
    Multi-Function Master Push Encoder
    New multi-function master push encoder allows for easier control of volume, tempo and swing
    Time Stretch & Pitch Shift
    The MASCHINE 1.8 software includes time stretch and pitch shift features. Automatically detect the BPM of a sample and stretch from one tempo to another. Or stretch your audio to a specific length to fit a sample to the same length as another sample. Plus, make your beats match harmonically, by tuning your samples with the pitch shift function
    Updated Effects
    Download the latest free software update that includes more effects, specially selected for beat production. TRANSIENT MASTER has been fully integrated in the MASCHINE 1.8 software as well. This is ideal for positioning drums and percussion; it lets you mix from front to back, giving each sample exactly the right amount of space. New Tube, Tape Saturator and Tube Saturator effects bring the secrets of analog warmth and natural, harmonic compression to MASCHINE 1.8, for even greater sound coloring potential

    One high-contrast, 128 x 64 pixel black-and-white display to quickly find the information you need in the studio or on stage

    Sampler

    Sample-length and number of samples only limited by your computer's RAM capacity
    Polyphony up to 32 voices for each sound, with choke, legato and glide options

    Convenient import of own samples, REX2 files and MPC programs
    Vintage Sampling Modes emulating the sound of the MPC60 and SP1200
