Hammer out beats, sequence melodies, create variations, and experiment with new ideas. The MASCHINE workflow is all about developing your music quickly, and MASCHINE+ is no exception.
Big and in your face, but endlessly expressive – the MASCHINE+ pads are great for drumming up rhythms, working out melodies, and playing chords. Use them like a keyboard with real expression, fire up the step sequencer if that’s your thing, or slice samples across them to create custom kits in seconds.
Find the sounds you need. Choose a plug-in, add effects, chain and tweak them. Slice samples with surgical precision for custom chops. Arrange, monitor, and mix your music. Two hi-res screens keep the MASCHINE+ workflow fast, fluid, and versatile with visual, dynamic control when sketching ideas, fleshing them out, and mixing them down.
ONE-TOUCH WORKFLOWMenu-diving is never fun. MASCHINE+ keeps essential control at your fingertips. Once you’ve found the sounds you need, the rest is about creating quickly.
PAD INPUT MODES
Go from drumming patterns to playing melodies, sequencing synths, and one-touch chords in a snap.
Hit the lock button, go wild with effects, tweaks, and more, before hitting it again to reset your tweaks for dynamic transitions.
Touch a knob, assign your favorite parameter, and get tweaking.
Big, easy to find, and great for fills or arpeggios when sketching ideas or performing live.

Essential transport functions, as well as mute control are a click away.
THE TOUCH ENCODERS
Dial in effects and modulation, touch to browse tags when searching for the right sound, or get hands-on with macro controls when performing. Context-sensitive touch encoders keep tweaking quick, and sound sculpting hands-on.
THE SMART STRIP
Small but mighty, the Smart Strip can be used for the classic pitch modulation you’d find on a keyboard, as well as modulating other controls, an expressive way to use Perform FX, and to strum chords and samples like a guitar for both effective realism and left-field creations.
From crate-digging treasures to vocals and field recordings, sampling is ingrained in MASCHINE’s DNA. Hook up your sound source, enter the sampling mode, and stretch, chop, or loop audio in a matter of seconds.
Take ideas, mix them up, swap them about, and structure your tracks straight from MASCHINE+. Song Mode is great for building the final structure for a track, or for working out ways to progress a live set.
