MASCHINE 2.6.8 WITH NEW BASS SYNTH

MASCHINE 2.6.8 introduces a monophonic, internal bass synth exclusive to MASCHINE.

MASCHINE 2.6.8 introduces a new monophonic bass synth plug-in. Design and shape rich bass tones with intuitive, fun, and fully-automatable controls directly from the hardware. Morph seamlessly from sine to saw to square – and all spots in between – to create your own unique sound. Or load any of the presets to get bass tones for any genre, including booming sub-bass or dripping acid. Unleash the full power of the bass synth with MASCHINE JAM to program classic acid glides directly from the hardware.

PLAY HARMONIES ON JAM IN ISOMORPHIC KEYBOARD MODE

MASCHINE 2.6.8 also introduces an isomorphic keyboard mode to easily play harmonies and melodies on the MASCHINE JAM 8x8 grid. In this mode, the notes on the keyboard are only the notes from the scale. Each chord also has its own hand shape – regardless of key – so you don’t need to know musical theory to play with perfect pitch. Plus, it’s easier to learn and play than on a traditional piano. Learn the shape for a chord in one key, and use the same shape in another.

NOTE EDITING AND MODULATION DIRECT FROM THE HARDWARE

With MASCHINE 2.6 software, MASCHINE JAM has the same note editing capabilities as your favorite MASCHINE. Now you can change a note’s pitch, velocity, length, swing, and position directly from the hardware via the step sequencer. You can also modulate parameters on each step. And now you have 16 fixed velocity levels for fast programming in step mode via a grid in the lower left-hand corner.

TAKE CONTROL WITH MIDI

With new MIDI CC capabilities, you can control your MIDI-capable external instruments, like your favorite Roland groovebox or Korg synth, as if they were plugins. Simply load the controller template for your device in your MASCHINE software, hookup an external MIDI interface, and play with any MIDI-enabled parameters, like tweaking a filter or adjusting a sound’s attack, directly from MASCHINE’s ultra-responsive pads and knobs. To get you started, we’ve built a library of presets for popular devices, which you can find on our Downloads page–and if you can’t find a preset for your favorite synth, it’s easy to build your own.

NEW UPDATE AVAILABLE NOW
