Native Instruments' music production line has taken a huge step with the introduction of their Maschine Jam controller. The Jam unlocks rapid song arrangement, step sequencing, unique instrument modes and much more. In today's hands-on video, NI product specialist Brian Kullas demonstrates the core features of the new Maschine controller.
Today is an exciting day for button pushers as the Maschine Jam is officially available in stores. Earlier this month we reported on the new controller from Native Instruments and all that new things Maschine Jam brings to the table. This new controller combines a lot of elements of past controllers and OddKidOut highlights the new features in his routine:
We’re excited to share a new routine straight out of Native Instruments' Tokyo artist lounge featuring GENRE BNDR, which includes, DJ Rafik (2007 DMC World Championship Champion), Kireek (2007-2011 DMC World Championship Team Champion), and DJ Yuto (2016 DMC World Championship Champion). This three-person routine incorporates live turntablism, controllerism, and finger-drumming all into one routine – a clever synchronized dance between four DJs.

The original version of iMaschine was a fun beat-making app, but a lot of the advanced production features that users of the Maschine software were used to never quite made it into the app. Native Instruments is today launching a brand new app, iMaschine 2, that adds an Arranger, Step Mode, and Smart Play functionality. There's a whole host of features that make this app less like a toy and more like a mobile version of Maschine's production software on desktops - keep reading for the full details.
OS X DJs and producers beware! Native Instruments has announced that by upgrading to OS X 10.11, (aka El Capitan), users will lose primary functionality of multiple DJ controllers, software plug-ins, and access to audio outputs on legacy hardware. With any big upgrade there are bound to be a few hiccups, but they are rarely caught this quickly.
