Native Instruments updates Reaktor to v6.2.0 and Maschine to v2.6.8
30th August 2017

Native Instruments has updated Reaktor and the free Reaktor Player to v6.2.0 and Maschine to v2.6.8.

Maschine 2.6.8, a free update for Maschine 2 owners, introduces a monophonic bass synth and an isomorphic keyboard.

The new Maschine bass synth lets users design and shape rich bass tones with intuitive, fun, and fully-automatable controls directly from the hardware. Users will be able to morph seamlessly from sine to saw to square -- and all spots in between – to create their own unique sounds. They can also load presets designed by professional sound designers to get bass tones for any genre, including booming sub-bass or dripping acid. Maschine Jam users can also program the signature glides and accents of classic acid directly from the hardware.

Maschine 2.6.8 also introduces an isomorphic keyboard mode to easily play harmonies and melodies on the Maschine Jam 8x8 grid. In this mode, the notes on the keyboard are only the notes from the scale. Additionally, each chord has its own hand shape – regardless of key – so users don't need to know musical theory to play with perfect pitch. Plus, it's easier to learn and play than on a traditional piano. Users can easily learn the shape for a chord in one key, and use the same shape in another. A chord guide is available as a free, downloadable PDF to help kickstart the learning process.
