Maschine 2 + Komplete 9 offer - buy now/worth it?

Post by muthafunka » Mon Mar 17, 2014 2:18 am

Maschine looks to be on my horizon and right now NI has Komplete 9 bundled for what seems a fantastic price....K9 on it's own isn't that much less than Maschine right?
Some of what's in there probably won't get installed but a fair bit is looking useful. Any reasons to hold off on this?

It all depends on how u plan on using Maschine. If u are a Live user, u might find a hard time integrating it in your setup.

That said it comes with a decent factory library and overall better drums than Suite.

Komplete is a no-brainer if u don't own it.

thnkas, yep, I don't have komplete but even counting th ecouple of things I do have it looks like a steal.
integration-wise I don't generally do anything too in-depth or fancy with my setup and being able to sketch things and bang ideas out, sampling, chopping with less mousing and Live interface is really appealing. I had a good look at Push but for various reasons Maschine was the one my hands gravitated too.

I might have bought this, it's a shame I already own Maschine Mikro :/

I'd be all over this if i didn't already own both products. maschine has been a great tool for creativity and the integration with komplete is unreal.

great bundle this is.
10.9 - Live 9.1/M4L - Studio One 2.6.2 - Komplete 9 ultimate - Maschine 2.0 MK2 plus random goodies and a ton of unused hardware.
