Native Instruments MASCHINE

Native Instruments has released version 1.6 public beta of Maschine, the groove production studio.

If you are a Maschine owner, you can download a fully functional 1.6 beta version, and submit eventual bug findings to the Maschine team over a special “bug tracker” web page.

The public beta version has already been tested extensively by our internal testing team, but for general reasons it should still be used with caution in performance-critical environments.
