Native Instruments Maschine Mk3

The classic groovebox workflow faster, more intuitive, and packed with new features
MFR# 24756

Product Description

The Native Instruments Maschine Mk3 takes the classic groovebox workflow and makes it faster and more intuitive. Optimized based on customer research, it’s packed with new features to boost your speed and increase your focus – all without breaking the workflow you love.

BIGGER PADS

Big, bold, and in your face, the larger pads create more room for complex moves like flams and rolls. New technological updates make the pads more sensitive to lighter touches, for more expressive playing. And since the center-to-center distance is exactly the same, your muscle memory and workflow don’t have to change.

FULL COLOR, HI RES SCREENS

With two full-color displays and the four-directional push encoder, you can browse sounds, FXs, plug-ins, and instruments with a tactile, one-handed, completely visual workflow – simply find the thumbnail and load directly from the hardware. Plus, the high-res screens let you get more precise with your mixing, see an overview of your arrangement, or zoom in on waveforms to slice samples like a surgeon.

STUDIO-GRADE AUDIO INTERFACE

MASCHINE now comes with a studio-grade, 96 kHz / 24-bit audio interface for pristine sound. Simply patch in a synth or add a dynamic mic for quick recording and sampling. Stereo line and MIDI ports make it a perfect centerpiece for any studio. Plus, it’s USB-powered, so you can record anywhere with your laptop – or plug in the included power supply unit for brighter pads.

8 TOUCH SENSITIVE KNOBS

Go beyond tweaking with eight touch-sensitive knobs. Touch once to activate special contextual menus, such as tag clouds, sound settings, and FX parameters. You can also map your most frequently used FX, instruments, or plug-in parameters to macros with the touch of a button.

SMART STRIP FOR NEW WAYS TO PLAY

The Smart Strip opens up MASCHINE to whole new ways of playing. Use it like a keyboard wheel to pitch-bend and modulate sounds. Add new sonic textures, builds, or transitions with advanced performance FX like stutter and scratch. Or strum samples, synths, and drums like a guitar.

DEAS VIEW

With MASCHINE 2.6.5, Ideas view was added to make sketching and arranging tracks more intuitive. Record alternate musical phrases or play different beats nonstop. Then mix and match until you find a groove you like.

PARAMETER SNAPSHOT MORPHING

Lock lets you freeze your current settings, tweak a sound, change an envelope, and return back to your initial settings at the press of a button. Combine it with the new Morph function to discover new transitions or add improvisation during a performance.

VARIATION ENGINE

The new Variation Engine is perfect for adding texture to a track or sparking new ideas. Use Randomize to create new patterns and melodies on the fly. Or add a little swing to your drums with Humanize.

FASTER WORKFLOW

The new hardware layout cuts through the clutter to help you stay focused and get your ideas out fast. Instead of being hidden behind a shift-function button, some of the most-used features and functions can now be accessed directly with one touch.

  • PAD INPUT MODE BUTTONS: Drum rhythms, program patterns, or play melodies and chords, switching easily with the click of a button
  • LOCK BUTTON: Take parameter snapshots, tweak settings, and return back to the original settings to discover new transitions
  • MACRO BUTTON: Simply touch a knob to assign your favorite parameters to macros and start tweaking
  • NOTE REPEAT BUTTON: Play fills and arps during a performance with a larger, easier-to-find button
  • UPDATED TRANSPORT SECTION: Transport buttons now include deeper integration with most DAWs and direct access to Follow and Tempo Tap
  • FIXED VELOCITY BUTTON: Program accents and ghost notes quickly with 16 fixed velocity levels or get a smooth, constant volume when triggering samples
  • UPDATED FILE MANAGEMENT: Open a recent project, make changes, and save it as a new file without ever touching the mouse with new Save and Open buttons
  • EXPANDED CONTROL SECTION: Quickly jump between views with one-touch access to the Arranger, Mixer, Sound Browser or Sampler

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
