Maschine 1.1 update adds MIDI I/O, pattern export

updated 01:40 pm EST, Wed November 11, 2009

Sequencer gains expanded functionality

Native Instruments has released Maschine 1.1, an update to the sequencer half of its hardware/software bundle of the same name. Users are able to generate pattern-based music tracks, founded either on custom samples or those taken from a 5GB library. Effects options include beatmashers, dynamic processors and mastering tools.

The v1.1 upgrade adds MIDI I/O support, allowing control of devices other than the Maschine groove box; polyphonic tracks as well as individual monophonic sounds are supported, and configurations can be set up using a batch process. Also new is drag-and-drop pattern export to outside software, and REX file compatibility, enabling pre-sliced loops automatically synced to tempo. Miscellaneous improvements include new slicing, count-in and scene-triggering options, as well as better controller integration.

The Maschine bundle costs $669 and requires Mac OS X 10.4, a 2GHz Core Duo and 2GB of RAM. Software updates are currently free.
