MASCHINE just launched their new 2.7 software update. New features like real-time time stretching, on the fly hot swapping and innovative creative ways to play with loops. This all to give the end-users an even faster workflow.
MASCHINE users now get real-time time stretching, meaning pre-cut loops are always in time on their project. Users simply drop in a loop and it automatically adjusts to the project tempo.
Hot swap loops
MASCHINE 2.7 adds the ability to hot swap loops. New loops are auditioned in the context of the project, including any effects chains, so users hear them exactly as they’ll sound in their track – building and swapping loops without ever stopping the music.
The new update also includes Gate mode, this is an innovative new way of playing your loops. The loops keep playing when the users hit the pads, or they can 'chop' the loop by drumming where they want to hear and place it. Gate mode also lets users change the melody of the loop by playing the pads up and down the scale. The pitch shifts where midi notes are played – producing new melodies and opening up endless creative possibilities.
MASCHINE 2.7 is the first in a series of updates which, in the coming months, will integrate audio into MASCHINE’s workflow.
MASCHINE MK3 owners also get new firmware that allows them to adjust hardware preferences directly from the MK3. This includes: Pad, screen and button brightness; audio and midi routing; pad sensitivity; headphone and main out routing. Plus, choice of a range of velocity curves for controlling pad responsiveness.
