Best hobby for a developer
jed1knyt, 27.09.2020
I spend half my day on the computer as a software developer.
Maschine has been my way to escape work. With just the imagination, I can create music. Somehow the finger fidgeting comes very "handy" here, with the beats and all.

Initially, expansions that can be purchased and downloaded from NI-website to bring inspiration. Different genres of beats will give you templates of what's possible.
Eventually other inputs can be incorporated, like real instruments (guitar, keyboard), even organic sounds/noises can be sampled - finger snaps, footstomp, voice, even scratching surfaces.
This devices is amazing.
I'm not a professional music producer, but I feel anyone that's in to music can find this awesome and interesting.
In fact, my 6 & 12 year old daughters love this as well!
I have no issues so far, its perfect for me.
I'm saving up to get the Komplete Kontrol S88 or S61, but for now, I will be purchasing an M32 next.
The guide I used to get started is just the user-manual (downloaded), and Youtube.
If you need a new hobby, get this. Its really fun and the amount of music you can create is endless.
You won't regret this purchase.

Excellent tool for creativity
Marc D. 534, 10.10.2020
This machine is a killer when it comes to creativity. Not only can you play drum beats, but you can add sounds from other plugins, synths, ... The workflow is easy to master, the pads are very good, and the instrument itself is built to survive long beatmaking sessions.

The application Maschine 2 is very easy to use, and you'll find creating complex stuff in now time. Gone are the days of creating beats with my mouse ! I now have a monster beat machine on my desk !

Oh, and you can of course use it to control Komplete straight from the box itself.

Only drawback - only a few DAWs have the Komplete Kontrol fully integrated, so forget using the Maschine for this task in applications like Reaper :/

bought it as a toy and it became part of my main arsenal
Bram7, 24.05.2020
i initially bought it as a 'toy' to mess around with but quickly incorporated it into my songwriting and it's now part of my main arsenal for writing and producing. i absolutely love it. there's so much to explore i've been using it for a few months now and have only discovered the tip of the iceberg yet. my only complained would be that the integration with other DAW's could be smoother as there's a lot of routing to be done here, but i know Native Instruments updates frequently so i bet this will get smoother in the next few updates. love Native Instruments, Love my Maschine

Awesome
saivajr, 30.03.2020
This is the second time I buy this product. Only reason being the first time I bought it with some friends and after I moved abroad I had to leave without it. A few months and I couldn't take it anymore.

Very nice build quality, looks and feels very professional.
My only other experience with drum pads are from a cheap midi controller. There is no comparison between the two. Using the Maschine is satisfying and there are plenty of options in the Maschine software to adjust the sensitivity and scaling.
I would not recommend it to anyone not wanting to use the Maschine software as I am sure there are cheaper alternatives to use with your preferred DAW.

With little to no experience, one can get very quickly into making beats or instrumentals in general. Comes with a nice library but most people might want to expand on it, depending on the type of music they make.

Thomann handled everything perfect as usual.
