SAMPLE. SLICE. EDIT.
MASCHINE STUDIO makes sampling fluid and simple – grab audio, slice it, and shape it. The hardware gives you total control and the hi-res displays let you see exactly what you’re doing at all times. Then kick out a groove with your new sounds on super-responsive pads.
Overview on the left screen, details on the right, parameter knobs directly below – never lose your editing focus. Get up to 64 voice polyphony for each sound, plus choke, legato, and glide control. And experienced beatheads will love the vintage sampling modes.
Slice your samples with laser-like precision. Choose the technique that fits you best with four different modes: Detect, Grid, Split, and Manual. Assign slices to the pads automatically and play them just like you would a drum groove or melody.
Get creative with a toolbox of destructive editing features including truncate, normalize, reverse, cut, copy, paste, fade-in, fade-out, silence, DC correct, and duplicate. Timestretching and pitchbending with automatic beat detection deliver highest possible sound quality.
MASCHINE adapts to your workflow. Get full velocity control, pad link, advanced note repeat, plus swing controls for sounds, groups, and the global project. Color-code your sounds and see your entire sonic palette at a glance.
An ultra-powerful step sequencer gives you another way to sculpt your grooves to perfection. Drop in sounds precisely where you want them and automate pitch, volume, LFO or any other parameter step by step for incredibly intricate and musical results in record time.
Build or sketch entire tracks with scenes. A scene is a flexible collection of groups and patterns. Scenes let you structure a track easily, and are essential for live performance. Create scenes for intro, outro, main groove, variation groove, and breakdown, then trigger scenes live as required.
A clip-based pattern sequencer means your ideas come together fast. Edit patterns, nudge notes, change velocity, record modulation, and more with 8 display knobs, dedicated edit buttons, and MASCHINE STUDIO’s jog wheel. All without ever looking at the computer screen.
