SKETCH-A-TRACK

MASCHINE JAM is the go-to instrument for building tracks with immediate, intuitive sequencing. Flesh out your ideas by constructing and re-constructing with patterns on the fly, and group them as scenes you can arrange from the ground up. When you’re done, you can quickly import audio from MASCHINE into your DAW for further refining.

NOTE SEQUENCING

Step sequencing not only works for rhythms, but also for melodies. Use MASCHINE JAM's powerful Piano Roll mode to program notes directly with the 8x8 click-pad matrix.

CREATIVE PERFORMANCE FEATURES

The latest MASCHINE software delivers cutting-edge features that make MASCHINE JAM a creative powerhouse. Define values like scale and note length, and edit inspirational sequences created by the Variation Engine.

INTUITIVE HARDWARE

MASCHINE JAM boasts a set of hardware features that were carefully designed to make track sketching a seamless creative experience.

SMART STRIPS

Eight dual-touch sensitive Smart Strips let you tweak up to eight parameters simultaneously. Play melodies and chords via note input, and shape sounds with Perform FX – all using two fingers per strip for unique results.

D-PAD AND TOUCH-SENSITIVE ENCODER

Find samples, instruments, and effects fast using the D-pad and touch-sensitive encoder to navigate advanced tag-based libraries in Browse mode. MASCHINE software reacts to the encoder when touched to instantly display key parameter overlays.

CLICK-PAD MATRIX

Trigger patterns and scenes with one-touch simplicity using the 8x8 click-pad matrix for instant jamming and arrangement sketching. You can also use the pads for step-sequencing or playing your sequences in Keyboard or Pad mode.

DEDICATED LED METERS

MASCHINE JAM’s Smart Strips are each fitted with multi-color LED level meters to show effect, volume, pan, aux, and layered Group macros parameters that you can map to the strips.

LOCKING

Quickly mutate sounds to create extraordinary build-ups using the Lock feature. Take a snapshot of the current parameters with the Lock button, mess with your sounds, and press Lock again to return to the snapshot. Save your ‘locks’ and recall them anytime.

JAM WITH A UNIVERSE OF SOUND

Thanks to the Native Kontrol Standard® extended plug-in format, MASCHINE JAM and the entire MASCHINE range interact seamlessly with the world of KOMPLETE and NKS-ready third party software. Browse and load presets instantly. And tweak key parameters pre-assigned to the Smart Strips for performance-ready sound shaping.
