"The colour-coding certainly qualifies mkII as a significant upgrade over mkI" - Future Music
"The Maschine MkII makes concrete improvements to an already solid, flexible music production platform. This should entice novice producers with its all-in-oneness and tempt initiated music makers to incorporate it into a larger setup." - DJ Tech Tools
