The black Maschine Studio from Native Instruments is a groove production system for Mac and Windows that combines hardware and software to provide a hands-on music making experience. Part sequencer, part sampler and part multi-effect unit, the Maschine Studio is equipped with 16 multi-color backlit trigger pads and dual high-resolution color displays, allowing for full control of all functions without ever having to touch your keyboard or mouse.
The Maschine Studio’s dual 480 x 272 pixel displays allow you to view important information in full color while you’re creating. These displays will show the sampler, mixer, pattern editor, arranger and channel strip screens, all of which can be viewed via the Maschine software as well.
Further aiding Maschine Studio’s hands-on music creation workflow are the 16 multi-color trigger pads. Backlit using true-white LEDs, the pads are each velocity-sensitive to help you program realistic drum patterns. Plus, they also feature MIDI aftertouch for modulating soft-synth parameters by applying varying degrees of pressure to the pads. Maschine Studio also features a bevy of other physical controls including eight display knobs, a master section, dedicated group buttons and transport controls
