The MASCHINE JAM hardware works in perfect unison with the acclaimed MASCHINE software. Swiftly bring your ideas to life with a versatile workflow fueled by software that’s always evolving. Start by creating something new with the immediacy of tactile control. Then easily store, recall, and develop your tracks with the flexibility of software in a digitally unified production environment.

And whatever your setup, MASCHINE JAM works through the software as a plug-in inside your DAW, or as an advanced MIDI controller for popular platforms.

Pattern Jamming

Keyboard Mode
Explore melodies and harmonies with the click-pads using MASCHINE's Keyboard mode. Just select your scale and chord values to start playing. The Arpeggiator can turn simple melodies into intricate melodic patterns.

MASCHINE JAM is the go-to instrument for building tracks with immediate, intuitive sequencing. Flesh out your ideas by constructing and re-constructing with patterns on the fly, and group them as scenes you can arrange from the ground up. When you’re done, you can quickly import audio from MASCHINE into your DAW for further refining.

Note Sequencing
Step sequencing not only works for rhythms, but also for melodies. Use MASCHINE JAM's powerful Piano Roll mode to program notes directly with the 8x8 click-pad matrix.

Creative Performance Features
The latest MASCHINE software delivers cutting-edge features that make MASCHINE JAM a creative powerhouse. Define values like scale and note length, and edit inspirational sequences created by the Variation Engine. Combine multiple instrument or effect parameters to control with the Smart Strips using built-in macros.

And add depth and complexity to sounds using advanced motion-sensitive Perform FX with the Smart Strips to uncover all new sonic dimensions.

Smart Strips
Eight dual-touch sensitive Smart Strips let you tweak up to eight parameters simultaneously. Play melodies and chords via note input, and shape sounds with Perform FX – all using two fingers per strip for unique results.

D-Pad and Touch-Sensitive Encoder
Find samples, instruments, and effects fast using the D-pad and touch-sensitive encoder to navigate advanced tag-based libraries in Browse mode. MASCHINE software reacts to the encoder when touched to instantly display key parameter overlays.

Click-Pad Matrix
Trigger patterns and scenes with one-touch simplicity using the 8x8 click-pad matrix for instant jamming and arrangement sketching. You can also use the pads for step-sequencing or playing your sequences in Keyboard or Pad mode.

Dedicated LED Meters
MASCHINE JAM’s Smart Strips are each fitted with multi-color LED level meters to show effect, volume, pan, aux, and layered Group macros parameters that you can map to the strips.

Quickly mutate sounds to create extraordinary build-ups using the Lock feature. Take a snapshot of the current parameters with the Lock button, mess with your sounds, and press Lock again to return to the snapshot. Save your ‘locks’ and recall them anytime.

Jam with a Universe of Sound
Thanks to the Native Kontrol Standard® extended plug-in format, MASCHINE JAM and the entire MASCHINE range interact seamlessly with the world of KOMPLETE and NKS-ready third party software. Browse and load presets instantly. And tweak key parameters pre-assigned to the Smart Strips for performance-ready sound shaping.

MASCHINE JAM uses MASCHINE software to seamlessly integrate into any DAW and fit right in with your studio setup – standalone or as a plug-in. And in MIDI mode, you can easily map MASCHINE JAM to your favorite software.

MASCHINE JAM also includes an advanced template for Ableton Live that lets you sequence and launch clips from the pad matrix, or play notes and control send levels with the powerful Smart Strips.

Fun live, also enhances my workflow along with the Studio
What is your opinion of this product?
I think this product is great for me, however I own a Maschine Studio as well. If you do not own a Maschine already this may not be the right starting place for you if you want to produce. The pads are not velocity sensitive, no big deal if you have a maschine. The bright spots for me are when I load something I made and "performing" with the Jam, switching between different patterns and pattern combinations, and then dropping one of the patterns out and creating something new on the fly to replace it in real-time, and switching back. It makes the production process a little more fun. It also simplifies creating a new blank pattern to a single button which is also great. The touch strips are cool, several ways to use them, I like "strumming" the most, but I find it best to select your own notes/chords, you also should mess around with the polyphony settings a bit for whatever instrument or sample you're working with because one strum holds all the notes, not always a good thing

I wasn't a believer until I tried it
What is your opinion of this product?
I just plugged it in and didn't look for YouTube tutorials albeit I did glance at the introduction video during the announcement and I'm familiar with the Maschine software. I pretty much just went at it to see what I can do. Arranging patterns, groups, etc is obviously faster. The fx performance/chord smart strip thing is amazing and nothing like the touch strips on the KK keyboard. They made this device really easy to pick up and current Maschine users will instantly know where everything is. It has a browser similar to Komplete Kontrol and it took me a few seconds to figure out how to select my sound. I was in the dark and couldn't find the select button but noticed that alternatively you can press down on the selector knob (nice). Again, I've only be using it for a short time but so far I like it. I'll say that it integrates well with other NI hardware. I had no problem going back and forth between the Jam and Studio when arranging patterns and browsing for sounds. I noticed that my Komplete Kontrol keyboard would light up accordingly when using the Jam browser and the keyboard can play the sounds that the Jam selects. I don't regret the purchase.
