MASCHINE+ is a sampler, a drum machine, a synth, and an on-stage superpower. In short, it’s whatever you make it. Leave the laptop behind, jam with your other gear, and create beats in minutes with a wealth of on-board sounds, instruments, and effects.

It’s the iconic MASCHINE workflow, with fewer strings attached.

DO IT STANDALONE
Standalone means more focus, more freedom, and more music making. Plug in, power up, and get creating straight away in the embedded MASCHINE+ production environment – from first ideas to finished tracks. Dial in effects to tweak your sounds, or sample audio and make it your own with an intuitive interface designed to keep the creative juices flowing. And if you want to bring your ideas into a DAW, copy them over, and boot up the MASCHINE software on your computer to pick up where you left off.

9 INSTRUMENTS, 35 EFFECTS, AND THOUSANDS OF SOUNDS ON BOARD
As well as its classic groovebox workflow, MASCHINE+ includes MASCHINE+ Selection: A dedicated package of nine synths and sampled instruments, 35 effects, and seven Expansions (including two of your own choosing) that work seamlessly in standalone mode.

It includes heavy-hitters like MASSIVE, FM8, MONARK, PRISM, the MASCHINE Factory Selection, RAUM, and PHASIS. That means its 16 pads can sound like a dusty vintage drumkit, a warped wavetable lead, or an organic modal synth – pretty much anything you can think of if you flex your sound design skills.

SAMPLE AND SEQUENCE EVERYTHING
Whether you’re digging records or ripping radio edits, record any sound into MASCHINE+ and quickly chop and stretch the results into your own custom kits. Or transform and twist them in real-time with the Audio plug-in. The same goes for guitars, vocals, drums, and anything else – more sounds means more creative ways to make music.

MADE TO BE PLAYED
Bring real expression to live performances with intuitive control over your music – tap out beats, run arpeggiators, or tweak synth melodies in real time. MASCHINE+ is an intuitive live sequencer, a fully-fledged groovebox, and a powerful performance synthesizer rolled into one.

INTRODUCING CLIPS
Clips let you arrange your ideas with even more freedom. Create transitions across scenes, add unique variation to patterns, record MIDI directly into the full arrangement, and freely add audio wherever you need it. Once you’ve fleshed out your ideas, you can use MASCHINE+ as a powerful tool to push tracks past the finish line.

CONNECT AND CONTROL YOUR SETUP
Play and sequence outboard gear and capture the results, or manipulate external audio in real time with effects. MASCHINE+ can control, mix, and manipulate the rest of your setup with MIDI, line, and mic inputs to bring everything together instantly. And if you want to work with a computer, it doubles up as a classic MASCHINE controller too.

SYNC AND ADD SOUNDS WIRELESSLY
MASCHINE+ is Wi-Fi enabled, which means you can install new sounds, instruments, and effects at the touch of a button, without a computer in sight. When it comes to jamming with others or playing out live, keep in sync with other music apps, DAWs, and compatible gear with Ableton Link.

ADD EVEN MORE WITH EXPANSIONS
Need more sounds? Expansions are great for giving MASCHINE+ some sonic love, with presets for its synths, one-shot samples, loops, and kits. The catalog is always expanding, and getting the latest sounds is quick and easy – just download and they’re ready to roll.


WORKFLOW


SPEED MASCHINE
Hammer out beats, sequence melodies, create variations, and experiment with new ideas. The MASCHINE workflow is all about developing your music quickly, and MASCHINE+ is no exception.

THE PADS
Big and in your face, but endlessly expressive – the MASCHINE+ pads are great for drumming up rhythms, working out melodies, and playing chords. Use them like a keyboard with real expression, fire up the step sequencer if that’s your thing, or slice samples across them to create custom kits in seconds.

THE SCREENS
Find the sounds you need. Choose a plug-in, add effects, chain and tweak them. Slice samples with surgical precision for custom chops. Arrange, monitor, and mix your music. Two hi-res screens keep the MASCHINE+ workflow fast, fluid, and versatile with visual, dynamic control when sketching ideas, fleshing them out, and mixing them down.

ONE-TOUCH WORKFLOW
Menu-diving is never fun. MASCHINE+ keeps essential control at your fingertips. Once you’ve found the sounds you need, the rest is about creating quickly.

PAD INPUT MODES
Go from drumming patterns to playing melodies, sequencing synths, and one-touch chords in a snap.

LOCK BUTTON
Hit the lock button, go wild with effects, tweaks, and more, before hitting it again to reset your tweaks for dynamic transitions.

MACRO BUTTON
Touch a knob, assign your favorite parameter, and get tweaking.

NOTE REPEAT
Big, easy to find, and great for fills or arpeggios when sketching ideas or performing live.

FIXED VELOCITY
Program accents and ghost notes quickly with 16 fixed velocity levels or get a smooth, constant volume when triggering samples.

TRANSPORT CONTROL
Essential transport functions, as well as mute control are a click away.

THE TOUCH ENCODERS
Dial in effects and modulation, touch to browse tags when searching for the right sound, or get hands-on with macro controls when performing. Context-sensitive touch encoders keep tweaking quick, and sound sculpting hands-on.

THE SMART STRIP
Small but mighty, the Smart Strip can be used for the classic pitch modulation you’d find on a keyboard, as well as modulating other controls, an expressive way to use Perform FX, and to strum chords and samples like a guitar for both effective realism and left-field creations.

SAMPLING
From crate-digging treasures to vocals and field recordings, sampling is ingrained in MASCHINE’s DNA. Hook up your sound source, enter the sampling mode, and stretch, chop, or loop audio in a matter of seconds.

SONG MODE
Take ideas, mix them up, swap them about, and structure your tracks straight from MASCHINE+. Song Mode is great for building the final structure for a track, or for working out ways to progress a live set.
