  • A setting that only turns the metronome on when the Record button is enabled
  • Real time group erase function.
  • Shift functions allow fast scroll browsing.
  • Play quantize option –notes played live on the pads are quantized in real time
  • Control software views from the navigate page on MASCHINE and MASCHINE STUDIO controllers
  • Instantiating the first plug-in on an empty sound updates the name of that sound to the plug-in name
  • Sound, group volume & pan knobs are only displayed on hover
