Native Instruments Maschine Mikro MK2 Groove Production Studio Features:

The new color-coding lets you ‘see’ your sounds, and it will turbo-charge your workflow.
Simply assign colors to the groups, sounds, patterns, and scenes, and see the pads on the hardware light up in the same colors. Make your kick drums red, for example, and you’ll always know which pads play your kicks. Add some color to your performances!
And with the increased sensitivity of the new pads, you also have a new level of precision at your fingertips.

When MASCHINE 2.6 is released, all MASCHINE users will get the full version of the modern legend MASSIVE – the synth that gave birth to the earth-shuddering bass tones and speaker-troubling leads that have defined the bass music genre.
This monster synth contains 1,300 ready-to-go sounds, all instantly browseable via the MASCHINE MIKRO hardware.

The MASCHINE 2.6 software includes time-stretch and pitch shift capability. Stretch smoothly from one BPM to another, aided by the automatic BPM detection. Or stretch your audio to a specific length – to fit one sample to the same length as another, for example. 
What’s more, make your beats match harmonically, by tuning your samples with the pitch shift function.

The latest free software update includes new effects, specially selected for beat production. TRANSIENT MASTER, NI’s hugely popular dynamics and mixing effect, has now been fully integrated in the MASCHINE 2.6 software. Ideal for positioning drums and percussion, it lets you mix from front to back, giving each sample exactly the right amount of space.
New Tube, Tape Saturator and Tube Saturator effects bring the secrets of analog warmth and natural, harmonic compression to MASCHINE MIKRO, for even greater sound coloring potential.
