Native Instruments updates Maschine to v2.1. Maschine is one of the best and popular groove production software.
The beat goes on with the MASCHINE 2.1 software update. Discover the new Grit kick engine, shaker performer mode, group MIDI export, and more. This update is entirely free for anyone using the MASCHINE 2 software.
Changes in Maschine v2.1:
- Grit engine in Kick Drum Synth – The Grit kick is a modern, versatile electronic kick drum. Tuned loose, it’s deep, open, boomy, and airy. Tightened up, it adds punch and heft. At high tunings, it can become gritty and bitcrushed – great for IDM and electro styles.
- New shaker Performer mode in Percussion Drum Synth – Hold down a note, and the highly innovative Performer creates natural-sounding shaker patterns automatically. Tweak the feel of the groove in real time, and add fills and syncopated riffs, with adjustable swing, shuffle, and groove. Incredibly powerful for live performances.
