Review: Native Instruments Maschine Mk2 and Maschine 1.8 Update | Music Technology | Scoop.it

Oh, Maschine. Are you the all-in-one music production hardware/software for the masses, the ultimate drum pad MIDI controller, a killer plug-in instrument, or just the prettiest multicolored light show on the music store shelf?

Zakk Froehlich's insight:

This music technology is helpful to DJ's and producers in creating drum tracks or just to have for an additional plug-in. It is a useful machine to have. Pro: It adds more possibilities to your creations. Con: It takes a lot of learning to understand.

The update has some pretty interesting and intense sounds. Aslo a wide variety of sounds and instruments to choose form.

 

Pro: More sounds mean more options and ideas for the imagination.

The colors make it easy to organize sounds and patterns

 

Con: If you're new to this product it takes a little time to learn the controls.

Even thought the more sounds you have the better, it can be an overwhelming amount of sounds in the library.

Rob Gallo's curator insight, October 8, 2013 11:29 AM

This article really interested me for a few reasons. I've never personally liked Beats headphones, but I can assure they are doing pretty well in the market place. After reading this, I have come to find out that beats will be opening their own radio streaming. Judging in today's society, I cannot really tell how well Beats Music will do in the industry.

Kyle Galligan's curator insight, November 10, 2013 11:40 PM

It seems that much of music distribution is becoming more adjusted to streaming because it is more convenient for consumers. Beats launching its on streaming service shows that this part of  industry is growing quickly.

Berlin-based developers Magix have been producing software since 1993, including the perennially popular Music Maker production tool for Windows.
Zakk Froehlich's insight:

Music Maker Jam is a basic music production software for beginners to get their foot in the door. It is not as detailed as ProTools or Logic but it is a great software to help you understand the basics of software and to see if you have an interest in creating music.

Zakk Froehlich's insight:

The Xbox music app will bring music to the gaming station for gamers to stream. It will have to step to the plate to out do stations such as Pandora and Spotify. I believe it will be successful because it opens gamers to being able to access music while they play their games.
