Introducing Native Instruments MASCHINE+. MASCHINE, but standalone!

Posted by Hannah Bruce 9/09/20

This week in very exciting Native Instruments news: we meet a new product highly anticipated by many. That’s right, standalone MASCHINE is finally here!  

We at Bop have over the years had so many customers asking when we think there will be a standalone version of the iconic Native Instruments product. To say this product release is a big deal would be an understatement! 

Free of the constraints of a computer but retaining the user-friendly format that Native fans will be familiar with, MASCHINE+ brings the best of both worlds in a rugged groovebox that would sit nicely at the heart of any set-up. Those already familiar with Maschine will know how quick and fun sampling, synthesis, sequencing and effects can be – the ease of getting ideas down has always been a crucial feature of Native products. MASCHINE+ takes this to a new level. Less time spent clicking your way around an arrangement screen means more time jamming out your ideas in real-time, more time with your hands on the instrument rather than on your mouse, more time honing and mixing your ideas into fully-fledged tunes. However, those who like producing with a computer (or who simply would like the choice) can also benefit from this brilliant bit of kit as it will also work in conjunction with a DAW.

MASCHINE+ is the ideal piece of gear for the studio and the stage. It will prove to be an absolute weapon in many a musician’s onstage arsenal (once live gigs finally make their sweet return to our lives!). In the meantime, it will make for a highly impressive live-stream performance if that is your bag, with expressive high-impact macros and in-depth tweaking the twist of a knob away!

Those who love a lot of bang for their buck when it comes to software will be pleased to know that MASCHINE+ comes with a wealth of industry-leading collection of instruments effects and sounds spanning across a variety of genres. MASCHINE+ Selection includes all the classics such as MASSIVE, MONARK, PRISM and FM8 along with the MASCHINE Factory Library, RAUM, PHASIS, and five Expansions, plus a voucher for two more. KOMPLETE fans take note: MASCHINE+ Selection qualifies the same as KOMPLETE Select in terms of upgrading to higher versions of KOMPLETE, which is great news for those who want to delve deeper into the glories of Native’s sound universe, for cheaper.

MASCHINE+ comes armed with a multitude of sounds and software to get cracking with off the bat. However, for those who want more: not only can expand your sound library with a vast array of Native Expansions, you can import your own samples via SD and USB storage. Under the hood, a quad core processor and 4 GB dual channel DDR3L RAM power fast, spontaneous creation, to deliver a huge amount of freedom and flexibility when making music. This machine truly is a music-making beast! 

This is already looking set to be huge so don’t delay, put your preorder in today!
