Man, I am so tempted. These look so fun to play with. Thoughts?

Well, I am probably gonna get the Maschine MK3. I like the big screens in the small form factor. I wish the buttons didn't look so much like Push.

Yeah cool stuff.. I'm not in a rush to upgrade from my MKI though.. pretty much does everything I need to.

I'm not that impressed with the Komplete Kontrol though. The old version looks much nicer to me. This seems bulky and still really focused around that browser which I hate (hate it in Maschine too). Also not sure what the new killer feature on this is supposed to be. The best thing about it is that I might be able to snag up an old model for cheap now

I'm unsure about the Maschine upgrade. The 3D Rotary encoder looks like it's really useful and the control strip could come in hand for live use. Much would depend on the pads and whether they indeed are such an upgrade as claimed. The Kontrol upgrade seems much more interesting, as the workflow now looks much close to that in Maschine. Not sure that's a big selling point if you already use Maschine controllers with an add on Kontrol keyboard.

I'll wait until more is known about the Maschine MK3 pads.

The one feature I would like to see is being able to draw linear or curved automation curves manually and the ability to handle audio tracks. That would make Maschine a full fledged DAW. I'd ditch Logic in a heartbeat.

Techno starts with a capital 'T', as in TB-303 and TR-808.

Ive got a sneaky feeling we are going to see Maschine 3 software soon...no?
Really hoping for something special on the sequencing side.
The new hardware looks great and the larger pads which appear to be improved are very appealing. Built in soundcard, headphone sockets, direct audio in. Winner!

I agree, the whole thing looks killer.
But as always we will need to see real world reviews. That said it's a well established system so they can screw it up too badly can they?
