Berlin, November 11th, 2009 - Native Instruments today released
MASCHINE 1.1, a free software update for its innovative groove
production studio. The new version further optimizes the workflow and
increases the creative potential of MASCHINE through new MIDI I/O
capabilities, support for the REX loop format, enhanced controller
interaction, and much more.
To allow producers to easily incorporate external gear into their
MASCHINE projects, the new version adds MIDI I/O functionality.
Hardware synthesizers and similar devices can now be controlled from
the MASCHINE sequencer both through polyphonic tracks and from
individual monophonic sounds within a Group, while a special “Batch
Setup” function makes it easy to set up MIDI input configurations in
existing projects. MASCHINE 1.1 also adds support for REX files,
enabling users to include pre-sliced loops in their projects that sync to
tempo automatically. Any pattern in MASCHINE can also be directly
exported as an audio file into a host sequencer or other audio software
through a convenient drag-and-drop feature.
Further enhancements in MASCHINE version 1.1 include additional
slicing options, advanced scene triggering, new metronome and record
count-in options, extended controller integration for parameter
adjustment and file saving, and a wide range of minor optimizations.
The 1.1 update is now available as free download for all owners of
