The Native Instruments Maschine JAM Bundle with Komplete 11 SELECT to ULTIMATE Upgrade and MKII provides an excellent saving for those interested in getting a comprehensive Maschine rig up and running quickly. The JAM works seamlessly and in tandem with all the other Maschine hardware, each model providing unique functionality in any audio workflow. With Komplete 11 the true power of these devices is unlocked, to open a world of exceptional virtual instruments, synths and sound processing. This bundle contains an upgrade from Komplete 11 SELECT (231207) to Komplete 11 ULTIMATE (231208).
The NI Maschine JAM Production and Performance System offers intuitive sequencing and track building in an ultra-modern design. The Maschine JAM allows users to create and manipulate drum sequencing and digital audio using an 8x8 multicolour click-pad matrix and 8 dual-touch Smart Strips, presenting a more pleasing and natural alternative to mouse and keyboard. As it can also be engaged as an advanced DAW controller, this “hands on” approach can be carried over into production and post-production activities.
The 8x8 Click-Pad Matrix is an extremely versatile tool, able to generate drum-patterns and arrangements with ease. Melodies and Chords can also be played on the Matrix, acting in a similar capacity as a standard keyboard. One-Touch access to patterns and scenes can also be applied with the pads of the Matrix.
Looking for a fresh way to create music? The LED-Guided Dual-Touch Smart Strips can be used to play notes and sounds, or adjust up to 8 parameters simultaneously with two hands for unique composition and design possibilities.
The unified hardware and software in the JAM (and, indeed, all Maschine controllers) means that performance of the unit is seamless and therefore never distracting from productivity. Included with the Maschine JAM is the MASCHINE 2.5 software (cutting-edge Drum Synths and a 9GB sound library) and Komplete 11 SELECT (featuring MASSIVE, REAKTOR PRISM, MONARK, THE GENTLEMAN, DRUMLAB, RETRO MACHINES MK2, VINTAGE ORGANS, DISCOVERY SERIES: WEST AFRICA, SCARBEE MARK 1, SOLID BUS COMP & REPLIKA), as well as a choice of 2 MASCHINE Expansions from the Native Instruments web site once the JAM has been registered. This totals an incredible 34GB of data straight out of the box.
Fully compatible with the entire KOMPLETE and MASCHINE ranges and 3rd party plug-ins with NKS support, the JAM can also be used as a controller for virtually any DAW software. This coupled with the fact that the ever growing range of MASCHINE Expansion sets available online guarantee years of inspiration whatever kind of music you are involved with makes this release an enticing proposition for any musician.

Native Instruments Maschine MK2 is the sequel to the combined hardware/software sequencer and sampler that has been acclaimed by top artists, producers and arrangers across the world. It allows you to harness the power of your computer while still benefitting from the natural work flow that a hardware groovebox brings.
Maschine MK2 acts as several things at once sequencer, sampler, effects generator and plug-in host. Offering you the ability to manipulate sounds and sequences both on screen and via the touch-sensitive pads, which in the new version are now freely assignable to different colours for easy recognition. Calling up and hitting the right sounds can be done at a glance whether in the studio or on stage.
There are a total of 47 buttons alongside eight control knobs and a push encoder, more than enough to access multiple samples, parameters and effects. The Maschine MK2 has been built with both studio and live performance in mind, and are suitably rugged to the touch whilst remaining sensitive. These controls will now automatically map to any plug-ins you’re using within the software as well as offering DAW control. Speaking of attention to live detail, even the faceplate of the hardware is now removable, allowing you to snap on magnetic custom kits to change the units colour.
Studio quality effects are also included with Maschine MK2, with transient master and tape saturators included. Comprehensive pitch shifting and time stretching tools are available for sample manipulation, which can be used on the extensive 6GB sound library. The entire setup connects by MIDI, and can therefore also be used to trigger other MIDI hardware for the producer or performer who is keen to make sequencing an art form within their live sets and studio creations.
