Native Instruments Maschine Mikro MK3 Compact Groove Production Studio
Meet Maschine Mikro, your flexible, compact companion for making music with a laptop. Use it to tap out beats, play melodies, and build up tracks – fast, fun, and hands-on. Want to start creating right away? Native Instruments have thrown in everything you need including instruments, sounds, effects, and powerful tools like sampling and drum synths.
Mikro gives you four different ways of getting hands-on with your music using the 16 pads. Drum beats in Pad mode, with colour coding for kicks, snares, and other sounds. Switch to Keyboard mode to play melodies with the pads. In Chord mode, it’s easy to lay down inspiring chord progressions. And in Step mode, program beats and patterns visually in a classic step-sequencer style on the 16 pads – get exciting musical results quickly.
Find, audition, and swap sounds without stopping the music. Browse through your favorite instruments, and load samples, projects and kits. A compact screen guides the multi-function encoder so you know exactly what you’re controlling, while staying in the creative flow.
Found a great sample? Hit the Sample button to quickly load it into your project from the software. Record from your audio interface to capture from vinyl, play in a guitar, or grab any other sound into your track. Shape and refine your samples using the powerful editing tools in the Machine software.
Add creative flourishes to your beats and melodies with the Smart Strip. Slide your fingers to bend sounds, strum instruments, or go wild with Perform FX like Stutter and Echo. Get creating and keep going – from one step to the next. Fast. The Maschine software comes with powerful tools for realising your ideas. You’ll find inspiration using the selection of premium sounds, samples, instruments, and FX included with Maschine Mikro. Plus it comes with full versions the popular synths Massive, Monark, and Reaktor Prism.
