Native Instruments just released the iMASCHINE, a professional beat sketchpad based on the popular MASCHINE groove production studio …. and in our humble opinion this little hand-held production tool is a game-changer. Retailing for $4.99 / 3.99 € , iMASCHINE is immediately available via download from the iTunes App Store to your iPhone®, iPod touch® or iPad® device. “Play and record drums on the 16 pads, jam a melody on the keyboard, sing on top of your loops via the built-in audio recorder or create your own unique sample banks from any source”… The interface is highly intuitive and easy to learn. When you are finished creating your killer project you can finalize it on MASCHINE or MASCHINE MIKRO, and/or upload it to SoundCloud.com/ ……..SICKKKKK!!!!!
