Most of our readers probably know Deviant Noise are huge fans of everything Native Instruments. Now the German-based company has just released a new update to the software of their flagship MIDI controller Maschine.
The new Maschine 2.6.5 software update is free to all hardware owners and brings users some new features. The new Ideas View is similar to Maschine JAM’s independent pattern/timeline feature. There is also new plug-in integration to trigger scenes and real-time group loading.
In a press release the company stated:
Native Instruments today releases the MASCHINE 2.6.5 software update, available free for all MASCHINE 2 customers. The update introduces Ideas View, a new layout that lets users build Scenes by mixing and matching patterns independent of the timeline. MASCHINE users can now experiment with new beats, vamps, and fills, or audition melodies and alternate between elements to find combinations they like. The update also features enhanced plug-in integration to trigger Scenes, making it easier than ever to try out ideas and find cool arrangements directly from the DAW via MIDI.
Additionally, in MASCHINE 2.6.5 users can load new Groups on the fly while audio and MIDI routings remain intact. Since every sound plays on its own previously mapped channel, users are now able to audition sounds for patterns or record alternate takes into a DAW, without losing settings.
