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.

Be warned of the NI After Care and bugs in Maschine Software
MSEURO, 24.02.2020
Be warned that whilst the Maschine MK3 is in fact a nice looking bit of kit and can be an nice beat making hardware/software combination, the huge downside is the software. The process to install the huge amounts of data for software, plugins and samples etc is painful. The main software Maschine is very buggy and tends to crash. You will only find this out after you have purchased and installed Native Access installer and created your online accounts with NI...and when you begin to see in forums that many people have to wait over a week for support and are experiencing software crashes. I dont think i would invest in NI equipment again based on experience of customer care which is my most important part of buying any product even if it costs 1euro or 1000euros.

I like it!
K.A., 23.10.2018
As a Cubase and Native instruments user I am totally satisfied of that product. It's my first dedicated pad I own and I have a sense that is something more than a simple pad. It integrates perfectly with NI and Steinberg Vst plug-ins.

As I wasn't a machine user before I feel I have to learn a lot of stuff before I can use it at it's full potentials but that's the magic of creativity!

The build quality seems to be quite satisfying and gives a great sense on my fingers (knobs and buttons). The pads are also very sensitive which makes it an awesome product! I am really happy I've got it!
