The better is the good enemy

Michael665, 14.10.2017
Sorry for the platitude, but in this case it is true too. NI's MASCHINE is one of the manufacturer's products, which has continued to evolve over many years and for the better. I had MASCHINE Mk1, later Mk2 and me someday sometimes "notched", but then always missed something. Machine serves mainly for fast "jamming" with software / hardware including other grooveboxes (electron, modular, etc.)

After many software updates, it was actually time for a hardware revision, which I also found excellent. Actually, everything is better, the pads, two new high-resolution color displays, controls that feel good, a (well-used) touch strip and even an integrated audio interface.
I have Ableton's Push2 right next to it and you can already see what NI has geared up with, but at least for my taste, some things were better solved. The controls do not feel rubbery and have a more defined pressure point. The backlit lettering is clearly legible everywhere. There are always some weaknesses in Push2.
Incidentally, the case of MASCHINE Mk3 is mainly made of plastic (only base plate is made of sheet metal) - in contrast to Push2 where at least the upper side seems to be made of aluminum. There are no disadvantages.

Personally, I like the pads even better than the old machines, but opinions seem to diverge on that. I really like Push2 Pads a bit worse, but since it's 64, the utility as an alternative keyboard is much bigger. For audio interface, I can say nothing for lack of use, but take it with you.

The software is well known and shows its weaknesses mainly when one expects to sit at a DAW. Currently there are no conventional audio tracks, but there are rumors ... ;-) Here is Ableton Live with Push2, of course, much further.

One thing that strikes me again and again when it comes to machines is particularly positive. In fact, NI has managed to create a "hardware feel". I do not even know where I often run the screen saver or even the screen switches to energy saving mode, and I have no need to activate it again, because really everything s.Maschine directly feasible. IMHO still has the edge on NI with the machine here, because Push2 still feels like a controller to me somehow and seems to be more indirect.

Weaknesses with the MASCHINE software is unfortunately still the relatively cumbersome integration into a DAW, whereby with some updates clear improvements came. Incidentally, my new favorite feature is the Scene-Locks with which you can freeze different states of parameters incl. Mutes of all tracks / instruments on each on a Lock-Pad (altogether 64 Scenes!) And call again. Morphing from one scene to another is also possible. Since you have looked at a few ideas from another manufacturer of Grooveboxen and something further.

Last but not least: If you just look at MASCHINE MK3 as a complete package - Groovebox, incl. Audio / MIDI interface, incl. Various NI plugins (Massive, Prism, Monarch, The Gentlemen etc.) + huge library included + 25¤ voucher the price / performance ratio is unbeatable.
