Native Instruments announces new Maschine Mk3 & Komplete Kontrol Mk2 hardware

Native Instruments has announced the next generation of Maschine and Komplete Kontrol hardware. Unified by an all-new industrial design, both units have been re-engineered "to inspire and enable nonstop creativity, boasting more intuitive workflows, optimized layouts, vivid visual feedback, and deeper studio integration".

Maschine Mk3 delivers its best ever workflow for quickly sketching and capturing ideas. It adds two high-resolution color screens for easier sound browsing, editing, sample-slicing, and more. The new hardware also features more dedicated function buttons and larger, more responsive pads that retain the same ergonomic layout users know and love. For enhanced convenience and portability, Maschine now features a built-in 96kHz / 24-bit audio interface.

Komplete Kontrol Mk2 extends the original keyboard's workflow with 17 additional function buttons and two high-resolution color screens for browsing, previewing sounds, and more. And now – thanks to enhanced DAW and Maschine integration – it's possible to mix, navigate, and edit projects directly from the hardware. The Fatar keybeds and unique Light Guide are joined by new pitch and mod wheels, plus a horizontal touch strip for additional expression.
