Native-instruments MASCHINE MIKRO MK3
The black Native Instruments MASCHINE MIKRO MK3 Groove Production Studio is a professional production and performance system, designed for both Mac and Windows. This combination hardware controller and integrated software offers a classic groove-box workflow, with a fast and intuitive interface that is designed to boost your speed and increase your focus. With the ability to act as a sequencer, sampler, VST/AU plug-in host, and multi-effects unit, the MASCHINE MIKRO MK3 supports beat-making, live performance, and more—all with the benefit of collaborative computer software. The software is stocked with a 1.6GB MASCHINE Essentials sample library that includes drum kits, synth sounds, loops, and more. Once registered, three KOMPLETE plug-ins are available for download including, MASSIVE, MONARK, and REAKTOR PRISM.
The MIKRO chassis is a more portable version of MASCHINE that scales back the screen capabilities and size while still offering 16 large, multi-colored, illuminated pads that are velocity-sensitive—making it easy to sequence drum patterns, bass lines, loops, etc. Plus, with color-coding, you can assign certain colors to certain instruments so you'll always know what's what without having to test it. Additional features include a compact display, a push encoder, a dual-touch Smart Strip, and dedicated buttons for navigation, scene, pattern, events variation, duplicate, select, solo, mute, and transport controls.
The MASCHINE MIKRO MK3 provides the flexibility of computer-based music production with straightforward, two-handed control for composing, performing, browsing, sampling, slicing, sound-shaping, and tweaking effects. Expand your sound with the optional 8GB MASCHINE factory library and KOMPLETE SELECT with 25GB of instruments and effects. What's more, there is the ever-expanding library of optional MASCHINE Expansions available. The Native Instruments MASCHINE MIKRO MK3 is powered via USB and a cable is included.
