Native Instruments has announced Maschine Studio and Maschine 2.0, updates of the company’s flagship groove production studio and next generation of Maschine software.

Considerably bigger than the original hardware, Maschine Studio provides expanded tactile control and new high resolution color displays. As with the Maschine and Maschine Mikro Maschine Studio is an integrated solution combining the latest software technology with a hardware-based workflow.

Maschine 2.0 features such enhancements as a new mixer page and dynamic drum synth plug-ins. They’re designed to deliver more power and speed to all three Maschine production studios.

Maschine Studio (US$999) will be available at the NI Online Shop starting Nov. 1. Maschine 2.0 is included with Maschine Studio and all Maschine and Maschine Mikro products shipping on or after Nov. 1. For more info go to .
