Maschine 2.6 update
The new Maschine 2.6 update brings with it a range of new enhancements and upgrades designed to optimise your workflow and give you added control over your sounds. One of the most prominent upgrade is the Variation Engine. The Variation Engine helps to add variety to your tracks for all Maschine 4x4 controllers, utilising the Randomizer and Humanizer in conjunction, giving you a new way to spark your creativity and conjure up new ideas. Maschine Jam's snapshot features I now accessible too (MK1, MK2 and Studio only), allowing you to experiment with different ideas without losing your original sound.
Perfect for production and performance
Native Instruments Maschine Jam combines modern innovations with classic functionality to produce this powerhouse of a production and performance system. The ergonomic layout ensures you have optimal access to all your controls and parameters, improving your workflow and performance value. The Maschine Jam will minimise the time you spend on the computer, giving everything you need right at your fingertips to both produce and perform live.
Designed for integration, the Maschine Jam will work seamlessly with your favourite DAW as well as the Maschine and Komplete product ranges for added versatility. With its 8x8 multicolour click-pad matrix and new LED-guided Smart Strips you can control, play, edit and shape your sounds as your desire. Maschine Jam also features a new sequencing control development, allowing you to control Maschine Software much like you would a classic step sequencer. This sequencing approach provides simple, effective access to a wide range of fundamental controls for enhanced workflow and maximised productivity.
The Maschine Jam features a comprehensive range of controls, buttons and parameters that allow you to take your productions and live performances to the next level. One of the most unique additions to the Maschine Jam is the LED-guided Smart Strips. The Smart strips act as XY pads and give you added control of tweakable sounds and parameters, for example, being able to make changes to automation live by swiping your finger down the strip. This gives you an added sense of interaction with your production, allowing you to physically shape sounds and input changes to automation in a new and innovative way.
8x8 matrix pad
The 8x8 multi-colour click-pad matrix gives you everything you need to create drum patterns, melodies, chords and sequences with ease. The click-pads themselves are soft and rubberised for comfort and durability, with the same feel as classic drum pads. Use the 8x8 click-pad matrix for pattern jamming, note input and step-sequencing to achieve seamless integration and optimal control over your sounds and productions.
Advanced one-touch control
One of the most useful features on the Maschine Jam is the one-touch access to patterns and scenes, which allows you to recall patterns instantly without the need for tedious navigation between parameters and patterns. The touch-sensitive encoder also prompts the software to display the corresponding parameter for added convenience. The advanced multi-track step-sequencer allows you to use up to 8 sounds simultaneously for more versatile performance and production options. You can tweak up to 8 parameters at once with two hands utilising the dual-touch Smart Strips.
Portable design with free software
The Maschine Jam is compact and lightweight in its design, making it perfect for taking to the studio and to gigs. The multi-colour click-pad matrix allows you to organise your sounds with ease thanks to the built-in array of LED colours, as well as being ideal for low light environments such as studios and nightclubs. The controls and parameters have been meticulously selected and positioned, delivering an ergonomic configuration that lays everything out in an intuitive user interface.
The Maschine Jam comes complete with free software including Maschine 2 and a 9GB sound library to get you started. Also included is Komplete 12 Select. You can also choose two of the Maschine Expansions from the 20 available, free with hardware registration for existing Maschine 2 software owners. It also features support for external VST and includes mappings for Ableton Live and more. The Maschine Jam comes supplied with a stand that can be mounted to the hardware for improved ergonomics, or for live performance.
