iMASCHINE puts professional groove production in the palm of your hand.

"The subway just got way more fun." (GIZMODO)

"A brillliantly designed little app, far more flexible than beatboxes and more than the sketchpad it is billed as. Export to Maschine rounds off the package." (Music Tech, UK)

Create a beat on 16 pads. Add a melody with the keyboard. Spice up your track with a field recording or lay down vocals, and even sample directly from iTunes.

No matter which iOS device you use, iMASCHINE adapts to your screen size – a compact workflow for iPhone and an optimized iPad workflow for two-handed groove production.

iMASCHINE is based on MASCHINE – the renowned groove production system from Native Instruments. MASCHINE is available in three different hardware versions: MASCHINE STUDIO, MASCHINE, and MASCHINE MIKRO. All come with the same cutting-edge software including professional sound library, drum synths and melodic synthesizers, and effects. The software also features a cutting-edge sampler, mixer, clip-based arranger, and visual browser.

MASCHINE STUDIO is the flagship music production system with unprecedented physical control thanks to its generous control layout, jog wheel, and two big high res displays for ultimate visual feedback.

MASCHINE is the classic groove production system with straight forward hardware workflow, 8 display knobs for tweaking instruments and effect parameters plus dedicated groups button to switch sounds fast.

MASCHINE MIKRO has the same high-quality, touch-sensitive pads as MASCHINE STUDIO and MASCHINE in a more compact format. The perfect entry into the world of MASCHINE or a tactile addition to any production or performance setup.

Customer Reviews

A Work of Art But Not Komplete

This is my first ever review and this is a great app. I can't get over how I can take the power of beatmaking with me anywhere in my pocket. Ideas can happen anyplace at anytime and all I gotta do is sketch out a beat and upload it to Maschine later.

However, I would love if the Maschine hardware came with a serial number to unlock a version of a full Maschine for iOS. If you could register an iPad the same way you can register up to two computers for Maschine, this would be phenomenal. This wouldn't cut into the Maschine sales and might even improve it because you would have to buy the Maschine to get the full Maschine for iOS. I will continue to use this as a sketch pad, but I greatly anticipate a full version for iOS in the near future.

Thank you Native Instruments.

iMaschine Returns From The Dead

This is an app I've been having a love/hate relationship. I loved that NI brought a taste of Maschine to iOS and made it better with an assortment of expansion packs as IAPs to bring new beats to the app. The bad was that it had no way to integrate to other apps.

Now NI really stepped it up with IAA and Audiobus. iMaschine is ready now to become a great asset in anybody's iOS studio on a tablet.

NI, now that we know that you do hear our requests I have a couple for you. First, can we get the ability to drop files in using audio copy/paste? That will make your app free from connection to a PC to load files. My second request is that you build in the ability to make files conform to your wav file specs. For example, I want to drop a couple of files that are 24-bit 96K and I don't want to go to a separate app to convert them to 16-bit 44K. I think you should have folks that can add that to the app. Those requests would make this app even better.

Thank you NI for listening to your customers.
