    Hi there!

    I'm going to buy a maschine, but I'm between MK3 or Mikro.
    I'm already using a S61MK2 keyboard, so, I was wondering that maybe I can use the screens and rotary knobs of the keyboard... the rest is the same as MK3 isnt it? (I know... Mikro doenst have soundcard, but I already use a Claret one...).

    To say it short: Taking away the soundcard and the screens, does MAshine Mikro has same function than MK3?

    Thanks once more guys!

    If you don't mind working with the mouse too, i think the Mikro is an excellent addition.

    It could be argued that a Mikro Mk2 might be less frustrating.o_O

    ! The knobs of the KK don't control all parameters of the Maschine software like the knobs of the Maschine controller.

    They certainly don't and there isn't seemingly any real rhyme or reason in how they might work well with each other not to mention the KK not having anywhere near the functionality something resembling common sense might say it should have. Welcome to the Future Of Sound ..It's so bright a High Vis jacket might be recommened.

    Possibly more the frustration of someone aware that certain things have a lot more potential than they are currently exhibiting.................;)

    my understanding, the MK3 and Mikro 3, the pads are same. Just no screens on the mikro and less knobs.

    FWIW, my own setup is Mikro + Jam + mouse and keyboard. I didn't get the Mikro because I already have a Komplete 6 so didnt need the audio. I still might pickup a studio on the used market.
