The MASCHINE 2.2 update adds a powerful new melodic dimension to the MASCHINE workflow. The Smart Playâ„¢ features include a new scale and chord engine, as well as a fully-functional arpeggiator. Producers can select from a range of popular musical scales and chords, and perform them into their productions directly on MASCHINE's 16 high-sensitivity pads. The arpeggiator allows precise control of direction, octave span, and subdivision '" its output is also recorded directly into MASCHINE's Pattern Editor, providing easy post-performance editing of the note sequences. The update also unlocks MASCHINE STUDIO's touch-sensitive knobs for an even faster, touch-and-see workflow.

MASCHINE 2.2 also brings full KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series integration to MASCHINE. Producers can browse instruments and effects in the MASCHINE software directly from an S-Series keyboard.

Light Guideâ„¢ also synchronizes perfectly with MASCHINE's pads, giving producers the same level of feedback on both pieces of hardware when switching from beats to melodic playing.
