Native Instruments Maschine Mikro MK3
The Maschine Mikro is the perfect compact companion for making music hands on with a laptop. Its flexibility allows you to easily tap out beats, play melodies, and build up tracks with its fast and fun work flow. Bundled with everything you need to get started right away from instruments, sounds and effects, to powerful tools like sampling and drum synths, allowing you to focus on being creative.
Equipped with everything you need to get creating, Maschine Mikro works both on its own or as a VST or Audio Unit plug-in in any compatible DAW. Use it to start building up loops, then work with them in your DAW to further your ideas into full tracks.
MIKRO gives you four different ways of getting hands-on with your music using the 16 pads. Drum beats in Pad mode, with color 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 MASCHINE software.
