Best piece of hardware I own
The MK3 is a joy to have. I previously owned the MK2 and I was extremely happy with it but ever since I've started working with the MK3 it just makes my workflow faster, sampling a tad bit easier, composing is amazing, and it makes finger drumming a lot easier as well. The performance strip is a Godsend purposed for performers and finger drummers. I highly advise anyone that is looking for a piece of hardware to get the Maschine MK3. You won't be disappointed.
A good alternative to the Ableton Push, at 1/2 the cost
I was torn between this and the Push, until I looked at the total cost to get it up and running. Maschine Mk3 comes with a generous selection of sounds with Komplete 12 Select. The upgrade to the full version went on sale shortly after I bought the unit. Another $259 and now so much to pick from. Sounds, drum loops, orchestration, piano...you name it, it’s there. Not totally intuitive software and workflow but worth the effort.
I needed some drum pads to compliment my Komplete Kontrol S49 keyboard and this looked like the best option. I am still learning (steep learning curve and not exactly 100% intuitive like the keyboards) but slowly every day I fall more in love with this machine. My only complaint is that it doesn't integrate well with Reason, at least yet. (works ok as a VST but no transport control or deeper integration. I hope this will change
Creative tool for all work cases.
Wonderful piece of gear and it works on so much more than just laying down hip hop beats. I use it for film score compositions, epic trailer cues, cinematic ambient pieces and funny game music cues. It's so inspirational and quick to work with. Just you and the music!
