If you’re looking for a music-making machine that can do just about anything, then it’s worth taking a look at. . The company is slashing the price of its Maschine hardware by as much as $200 and throwing in a few free software add-ons for good measure. The pick of the bunch is the Maschine+, which is currently $200-$1,199. Even better, if you’re an existing customer, you might qualify for a bigger discount. You will know after logging in.
With the Maschine+, released in 2020, NI – you don’t need a PC to use the instrument. It combines a synth, a sampler, a sequencer and a drum machine.
We gave the Maschine+ a score of 83, finding it to be high-quality hardware with a respectable range of synth software. We liked that it could be used as a standalone device as well as a MIDI controller. However, we felt the input and output options were limited and some of the instruments looked dated.
Elsewhere, you can get $100 off the (now $599) or $50 off the (which is down to $219). If you buy one of these devices, be sure to register the serial number in the Native Access software or directly on Maschine+. You will receive an email with a voucher that will allow you to unlock up to eight extensions at no additional cost.
The sale and free software offer will continue until May 5th. Promo codes will expire if not used by June 1.
