Native Instruments Maschine Studio Released
October 1st 2013 by the VIP SOUNDLAB
Greetings Fellow VIP Members, as you know Native Instruments has released the new Maschine Studio and its new 2.0 software. It has some long awaited features I know I have been waiting for such as the Multi-core support. The Multi-core support is a feature that was badly needed and thanks to the software that has been completely rewritten from the ground up, all native instruments users can now benefit from the multi-core support.
With that being said I personally have never had any lag or latency with maschine in the past as my Laptop has had enough speed to process the software. I have seen forums where users were wanting the multi-core support as well a nice list of features that were needed but i think native instruments has fullfilled those requests very well in my opinion with the new 2.0 software.
Beneath MASCHINE STUDIO’s advanced hardware is all-new software – exploding with cutting-edge technology.
MASCHINE 2.0 delivers a spectacular, tag-based visual browser, unlimited groups and insert effects, sidechaining, and a sleek, intuitive mixer – all directly accessible from the hardware. MASCHINE 2.0 hosts any VST or AU plug-in and perfectly integrates into any studio setup as a plug-in in all major DAWs. The software also boasts full multi-core support for ultra-fast performance.
The new Flagships controller now sports two brand new dual displays that gives us a unique heads-up views of the waveforms and other editing features. You can zoom in to sample-accurate pictures of the waves, while retaining the overview on the left. With the shift button now removed from the hardware controller the work flows will be alot faster thanks to its new jog wheel that has alot of commands literally at your finger tips. The enormous jog wheel has an integrated click button you can use it to call up and edit samples, navigate patterns and arrangements and because the jog is beat-quantized, you could also use it in performance views as well.
Shipping with a big 8 GB library of production-ready sounds. Producers can create their own drums with sonically-outstanding drum synths – a broad sweet spot makes it super-easy to dial in just the sound you’re looking for. Modulate 24 pro-quality studio effects directly from the hardware. Plus you get full versions of MASSIVE, PRISM, SCARBEE MARK I, and the SOLID BUS COMP.and incredible new features such as unprecedented physical control and visual feed back Sampler, arranger, mixer, effects, and more. Includes MASCHINE 2.0 software, instruments, and a new drum synth. Eight display knobs, edit buttons, and a jog wheel with LED indicator provide complete tactile control of MASCHINE’s sequencer, instruments and effects. A dedicated level section delivers clear metering and monitoring. And a built-in stand delivers the perfect performance angle.
MASCHINE STUDIO redefines hands-on control with out a doubt , the Big high-res color screens show waveforms, patterns, scenes, NI product visuals , the new mixer and meter levels in full detail. Multi-color pads provide ultimate feel in the thick of the beat. The New Flagship still does not have any audio I/O's which is unfortunate but does have 3 midi outputs and a foot switch.There’s also a new master meter LED on the controller to make watching levels a snap with you are not looking at the computer screen. - VIP SOUNDLAB
