Alright so first of all I realize this thread isn't exactly about basses so if this needs to get moved I understand. I've got a Native Instruments Maschine. I bought it when I was on a music production kick back in the summer. If you don't know, essentially its a "groove production studio" in a midi controller that still resembles a drum machine. It can't run independently without a computer. Here's the website: NATIVE INSTRUMENTS : HOME | HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE FOR MUSICIANS, PRODUCERS, DJS, GUITAR AND BASS PLAYERS I'm either going to get rid of it or use it as a practice tool (New Year's resolution-use the gear I got or sell it). Do any of you guys use something this crazy or a drum machine in general? Think Id be better off with something more simple? Thoughts?
