SPEED MASCHINE

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.

THE PADS

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.

THE SCREENS

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 WORKFLOW

Menu-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.

TRANSPORT CONTROL

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.

SAMPLING

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.

SONG MODE

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.
