Free Maschine 2.2 Update Coming in November
By now we know that Native Instruments likes to introduce new product around this time of the year. 2014 will be no different. With the announcement of Komplete 10 and Komplete Kontrol S-Series Keyboard, they are following up with a free Maschine 2.2 update for current Maschine 2 owners.
Maschine 1.x owners won’t be left out either. Those who register Komplete 10, Komplete 10 Ultimate or Kontrol S-Series Keyboard will also get the Maschine 2.2 update for free. Here is what we have to look forward to.
MASCHINE 2.2 unlocks MASCHINE STUDIO’s touch-sensitive knobs. For example, when browsing, touching a knob automatically takes you to the tag cloud on the hardware display. Depending on which control knob you touch, you’ll see all available options and functions in a pop-up list. For instance, routing options for sounds and groups. Absolutely no menu diving – a turbocharged workflow.
SCALES AND CHORDS
MASCHINE 2.2 extends Keyboard Mode with a new scale and chord engine – fully integrated into the MASCHINE workflow. Simply select your scale and start playing melodies on MASCHINE’s 16 ultra-sensitive pads that are always in key. Engage Chord Mode and play chords directly into your compositions.
MASCHINE 2.2 extends Note Repeat into a fully-functional arpeggiator. Play any number of notes and let MASCHINE turn them into a melodic pattern. Use the arpeggiator in combination with Scale and Chord Modes and get polyphonic performances from just one key – always in tune. What’s more, the output of the arpeggiator is recorded into the Pattern Editor – perfect for post-performance editing.
MASCHINE 2.2 gives you full keyboard functionality within the MASCHINE environment. Press browse on your KOMPLETE KONTROL keyboard and the KOMPLETE Browser pops up on your computer screen, letting you select and load a sound directly into a sound slot in MASCHINE. Watch scales, chords, and arpeggios light up across KOMPLETE KONTROL’s Light Guide™, see the color of your sounds in MASCHINE directly on the keyboards, and get perfectly-mapped parameters instantly with Native Map™.
