Native Instruments have just released a software update for our favorite beat-making device Maschine. The Maschine 2.2 software update allows for full and seamless integration with the recently reviewed
, touch sensitive controls for the
knobs, and new scale and Arpeggiator modes to open up new creative possibilities.
I've personally already tried using the Maschine Studio with the Komplete Kontrol S49 keyboard and I'm happy to report that it all works very easily and seamlessly. I'll complete a quick video showing you the possibilities and results of this integration very soon. The Maschine 2.2 update also takes the same (or very similar) Scale and Arpeggiator modes that we checked out on the Komplete Keyboards and applies them to the Maschine environment. The Maschine Studio also has the same touch sensitive knobs that is found on the Komplete Keyboards and now the new firmware also activates the touch sensitivity on the Studio so users can adjust certain sound attributes easily.
There's also a bunch of other fixes and updates in the 2.2 software which you can read about in the full Native Instruments press release below. Head on over to the Service Center or NI website for the update...
Stay tuned for our quick video of this cool new integration, but check out the review of the
Controllers to see the powerful production tools in action.
