What’s next for Mas­chine?

Future Music - - PRO­DUCER’S GUIDE TO -

While it might have be­gun life as an MPC-alike sam­pling beat maker, there’s lit­tle doubt that Mas­chine has now grown into an ex­cep­tion­ally deep tool for sound de­sign, ar­range­ment and even mix­ing. So where can we ex­pect it to go next? Na­tive In­stru­ments have been pretty open on their fo­rums in re­cent months about the fact that they’re look­ing to add au­dio into Mas­chine in some way. While there’s no con­fir­ma­tion on ex­actly how this would be im­ple­mented, it looks likely that it will first ar­rive in the form of a loop record­ing/play­back sys­tem, that will al­low Scenes of full au­dio to be added to the Ar­ranger or Ideas View. This would seem like a sen­si­ble place to start – al­low­ing sim­ple au­dio record­ing to be added to the plat­form with­out hav­ing to al­ter the struc­ture of the cur­rent ap­pli­ca­tion. NI have also men­tioned the pos­si­bil­ity of adding real-time timestretch­ing to the sam­pler into a fu­ture up­date. All of which will bring Mas­chine closer than ever to be­ing able to func­tion as a stand­alone DAW.
