    So apparently on Amazona.de they put this article up but then it was taken down. I guess someone messed up. I found the cache version:

    "Native Instruments today introduced a new version of its machine controller. Native Instruments MK3 will be available from 05 October. Here is the most important information about the third generation of the controller:

    The modern production and performance system Native Instruments machine MK3 has a new design in the now third generation. The first point of view is two new high-resolution color displays, which the manufacturer has already placed in the upper right corner as in the previous ones. In this case, the search for sounds, the editing of notes or the slicing of samples is now easier and faster. Overall, the layout of the controls as well as the texture of the buttons were changed, according to Native Instruments, this was optimized on the basis of customer and artist surveys. Also new is the 4-dimensional Push Encoder, which is designed to simplify browsing within the sounds and navigating. Many new dedicated buttons for frequently used functions like Note Input Mode,

    An important component of the new Native Instruments machine MK3 is a 24 bit / 96 kHz audio interface with stereo and microphone inputs as well as line and headphone outputs. This increases the application area very clearly and makes the machine a bit more a "Production and Performance System". The power supply should be continued via USB, alternatively via the included power supply.

    New is also the so-called "Smart Strip", which is to offer a completely new playing feeling: chords like play on the guitar or machine Perform FX control should be possible.

    Available is Native Instruments machine MK3 from the 05. October 2017, the price is as well as the MK2 version at 599, - US dollar / euro.

    • 599, - US Dollar / Euro"
    From what I'm reading - it's going to have a built-in audio interface???

    It definitely looks dope, however, a lot of users are asking for version 3.0 of the software to fix bugs and bring in long-awaited features. There's no word on that yet though.

    That's the thing. It's the bling of the MK3. NI is very good at marketing lol. But I'm still undecided. What's your reason @thedreampolice ?

    Apparently they didn't put holes at the bottom so it won't fit the Maschine stand from the MK1 and MK2. :mad:
    The audio interface is a nice addition but I don't know how many people will have a use for it since most people have an interface already.

    It somehow feels like a hybrid model. It's like they've put out a new controller that is tied to a computer but has some standalone features.

    @Fade maybe that's their whole idea to imitate a standalone controller. We already saw with the MK1 and 2 that their tryna the mouse and keyboard as useless as possible. Their probably jus adding hardware features now

    Yeah that's what it looks like. I mean, they have to compete with others companies like Akai with their new standalone units.

    I currently don't have any Maschine's as I got rid of my MKI a while back and was waiting to buy MKIII when it came out. Now that Reason has VST support and Maschine has such a great workflow I am pretty happy these days.

    the only thing i don't like about it is that you can't sample internally (from the computer), although you can use the interface to play things internally. for instance, you can play youtube through the interface, but can't sample from youtube directly into machine (without the usual workarounds). other than that, i think it's a beast.

    Im an absolute NI Fan Boy. I would love to get my hands on. But I`ll stick with my Maschine Studio until I beat the shit out of it and break it. But what I would love is an Update, so that the Maschine software is more like an regular DAW. It coasts me too much time to bounce all tracks out of the Maschine and rearrange it in Studio One to mix it.
