I have Maschine Mikro. I don’t have a need need for the full-sized unit, because I’m linking to my DAW and not performing live. I’m not a “drum-box composer.” I don’t do much programming in the unit at all. I mostly drag loops into DP and go from there. That said, if club music was my thing, I’d love it.
What I like about it it, is that unlike RMX, you can transfer separate midi files for each sound, which is very good. It opens up a lot of creative possibilities.
Most of the the shows that I write for are aimed at teenagers, and the editors use a lot of hip hop and dance based music. But, they even use those tracks in the sports shows that are for an older audience. I bought Maschine because it seemed like a necessary part of the toolkit for that work.
So…if you’re looking to broaden your catalog into the hip hop / dance / dub step zone, it’s a good buy.
