What’s New In Native Instruments Maschine 1.1

Native Instruments has released Maschine 1.1, a free software update for its groove production studio.

The new version optimizes the workflow and increases the creative potential of Maschine through new MIDI I/O capabilities, support for the REX loop format, enhanced controller interaction, and more.

To allow producers to easily incorporate external gear into their Maschine projects, the new version adds MIDI I/O functionality. Hardware synthesizers and similar devices can now be controlled from the Maschine sequencer both through polyphonic tracks and from individual monophonic sounds within a Group, while a special “Batch Setup” function makes it easy to set up MIDI input configurations in existing projects. Maschine 1.1 also adds support for REX files, enabling users to include pre-sliced loops in their projects that sync to tempo automatically. Any pattern in Maschine can also be directly exported as an audio file into a host sequencer or other audio software through a convenient drag-and-drop feature.

Further enhancements in Maschine version 1.1 include additional slicing options, advanced scene triggering, new metronome and record count-in options, extended controller integration for parameter adjustment and file saving, and a wide range of minor optimizations.

The 1.1 update is now available as free download for all owners of Maschine.

  1. OMFG. Finally! Running smooth and native on the iPad now!
    I know others will criticize it for not having IAA or Audiobus, but I don’t think it was ever meant to be used like that. Same thing applies to KORG Gadget.

    (one totally random feature I am happy to see. “Restore all purchases”. I spent probably 45 minutes entering my apple password over and over again the other day after I rebuilt my iphone. Also, it tells you which ones you own so you don’t have to gamble on it charging you when you install one)
