Touch-sensitive pads, encoders and smart strip
The 16 RGB illuminated, touch-sensitive pads are ideal for finger-drumming and playing virtual instruments. The pads can be used for a wide range of applications from triggering samples on the fly during live performances to providing a real-time, natural-sounding way to input drums in music production software. As well as large pads, the Maschine MK3 also boasts 8 touch-sensitive knobs that allow you to control your parameters and settings with extreme precision.
A smart strip is also included for added expression when playing sounds and instruments. The smart strip allows you to run your finger across the strip, reacting accordingly. This is ideal for pitch bending, strumming notes, performing with FX and more. There is also a four-directional push encoder for browsing through settings, navigating sounds, adjusting levels and balance.
Built-in audio interface and seamless integration
One of the most unique features of the Maschine MKIII is the integrated, professional-grade 96kHz/24-bit audio interface. The premium-grade audio interface ensures exceptional audio fidelity and performance. The interface can be used for capturing studio-grade recordings while playing virtual instruments or for routing external equipment such as microphones, and line-level instruments.
The Maschine MK3 also provides seamless integration with popular DAW software, as well as the Komplete series from Native Instruments. The plug and play functionality means you can get setup and started within minutes, allowing you to focus on your production and/or live performance sets.
