Native Instruments seem to almost release products fortnightly. There is now another Maschine Expansion in the pipeline and we have a couple of sound clips for you to drool over. No doubt this expansion makes full use of Maschine’s new version 2.0 software with things like the new drum synths, or the fact that you are no longer limited by the amount of groups in a Project, allowing you to produce even more complex rhythm patterns with oodles of nuances.

While you are waiting with complete restraint, why not try my expansion for Maschine called the FILTA REVOLUTION.

The FILTA REVOLUTION brings the energy and power of industrial, retro and techno sounds to your Native Instruments Maschine and features special kits designed to bring out your song-writing creativity. Listen to demo and get full details HERE.

Native Instruments New Maschine Studio in Action with Jeremy Ellis with Version 2.0 Software


You cannot fault the talents of Jeremy Ellis. His fast finger drumming technique comparable with a concert pianist can make any 16 pad groove machine stand out in the crowd but when you put him with Native Instruments new flagship Maschine called the Maschine Studio you have an explosive match.

As soon as you watch this You Tube clip, it makes you want to go and buy one. A little expensive – yes, but its a killer machine, the Maschine Studio. Its bigger, its brighter, its faster and it is awesome and colourful but above all it is total creative fun and can make musicians out of us all.

I find it interesting that with all the reviews and training you tube clips that are out there, no one has mentioned a significant change in Native Instruments Maschine 2.0 software over version 1.8 when it comes to dealing with Patterns. In fact it is completely different and so are the file names.

Here are the Maschine 2.0 Browser icons from left to right showing; Projects, Groups, Sounds, Instruments, Effects, Samples, Native Instrument Files and User Files:-

Well its the 1 November 2013 and you can download the new Native Instruments Maschine Software Version 2.0. I know there is also a new lovely looking Maschine hardware controller called the Maschine Studio but my bet is there are more folk out there (like me) who have decided to pay the $99 / 99 Euro upgrade price to upgrade to version 2.0 using their existing controller.

Getting to grips with the new software is always a worry and the installation is large and time-consuming but hopefully at the end of it, we all have something very special. I will be making another page to collect some useful You Tube clips to help you and I get started with this beasty. Check the ‘Free Stuff’ menu under ‘Maschine World’ shortly for some great clips, sounds, kits and patterns.
