Description

The Maschine Jam from Native Instruments is a modern production and performance system for intuitive sequencing and track building. Utilizing the 8×8 multi-color click-pad matrix, producers can sketch patterns with advanced multitrack step-sequencing, input notes and chords, or pattern-sequence on the fly. The eight dual-touch sensitive Smart Strips let you tweak up to eight parameters simultaneously and offer the ability to play melodies, chords, and input notes. These integrated performance FX allow for cutting-edge ways to shape sounds in new ways.

The included Maschine software comes loaded with an 8GB sound library with over 8000 samples, 445 full drum kits, 380 multi-sampled instruments, 400 sliced loops, 1200 patterns, and 38 projects. Included within the Maschine library are the Drum Synth plug-ins, which include Kick, Snare, Hi-Hats, Toms, Percussion, and Cymbal. Each drum synth offers multiple sound engines to deliver a broad pallet of sounds, from classic electronic drum machines to ultra-realistic acoustic modeling.

Also included are Performance FX including Filter, Flanger, Burst Echo, Reso Echo, Ring, Stutter, Tremolo, and Scratcher. And if that’s not enough, Maschine ships with its own creative suite of 24 effects including compressors, tape and tube saturations, a transient designer, reverb, EQs, and more. All effects can be chained or combined with VST/AU plug-ins to further expand the sonic pallet. Also included with Maschine Jam is the NI Komplete 11 Select, a software suite of 11 premium instruments and effects with over 25GB of sounds. Maschine Jam ships with a USB cable, mounting stand, and a $25 e-voucher good for purchases from the NI Online Shop.
