Native Instruments announces MASCHINE 2.6 update
With MASCHINE 2.6 software, MASCHINE JAM has the same note editing capabilities as your favorite MASCHINE. Now you can change a note’s pitch, velocity, length, swing, and position directly from the hardware via the step sequencer. You can also modulate parameters on each step. And now you have 16 fixed velocity levels for fast programming in step mode via a grid in the lower left-hand corner.
With new MIDI CC capabilities, you can control your MIDI-capable external instruments, like your favorite Roland groovebox or Korg synth, as if they were plugins. Simply load the controller template for your device in your MASCHINE software, hookup an external MIDI interface, and play with any MIDI-enabled parameters, like tweaking a filter or adjusting a sound’s attack, directly from MASCHINE’s ultra-responsive pads and knobs. To get you started, we’ve built a library of presets for popular devices, which you can find on their Downloads page–and if you can’t find a preset for your favorite synth, it’s easy to build your own.
