The Native Instruments Maschine JAM Bundle with Komplete 11 SELECT to STANDARD Upgrade and MIKRO provides an excellent saving for those interested in getting a comprehensive Maschine rig up and running quickly. The JAM works seamlessly and in tandem with all the other Maschine hardware, each model providing unique functionality in any audio workflow. With Komplete 11 the true power of these devices is unlocked, to open a world of exceptional virtual instruments, synths and sound processing. This bundle contains an upgrade from Komplete 11 SELECT (231207) to Komplete 11 STANDARD (231206).
The NI Maschine JAM Production and Performance System offers intuitive sequencing and track building in an ultra-modern design. The Maschine JAM allows users to create and manipulate drum sequencing and digital audio using an 8x8 multicolour click-pad matrix and 8 dual-touch Smart Strips, presenting a more pleasing and natural alternative to mouse and keyboard. As it can also be engaged as an advanced DAW controller, this “hands on” approach can be carried over into production and post-production activities.
The 8x8 Click-Pad Matrix is an extremely versatile tool, able to generate drum-patterns and arrangements with ease. Melodies and Chords can also be played on the Matrix, acting in a similar capacity as a standard keyboard. One-Touch access to patterns and scenes can also be applied with the pads of the Matrix.
Looking for a fresh way to create music? The LED-Guided Dual-Touch Smart Strips can be used to play notes and sounds, or adjust up to 8 parameters simultaneously with two hands for unique composition and design possibilities.
The unified hardware and software in the JAM (and, indeed, all Maschine controllers) means that performance of the unit is seamless and therefore never distracting from productivity. Included with the Maschine JAM is the MASCHINE 2.5 software (cutting-edge Drum Synths and a 9GB sound library) and Komplete 11 SELECT (featuring MASSIVE, REAKTOR PRISM, MONARK, THE GENTLEMAN, DRUMLAB, RETRO MACHINES MK2, VINTAGE ORGANS, DISCOVERY SERIES: WEST AFRICA, SCARBEE MARK 1, SOLID BUS COMP & REPLIKA), as well as a choice of 2 MASCHINE Expansions from the Native Instruments web site once the JAM has been registered. This totals an incredible 34GB of data straight out of the box.
Fully compatible with the entire KOMPLETE and MASCHINE ranges and 3rd party plug-ins with NKS support, the JAM can also be used as a controller for virtually any DAW software. This coupled with the fact that the ever growing range of MASCHINE Expansion sets available online guarantee years of inspiration whatever kind of music you are involved with makes this release an enticing proposition for any musician.

The Native Instruments KOMPLETE KONTROL S25 is a semi-weighted, 25-key keyboard that opens up the full potential of KOMPLETE. Feel the world's most advanced software instruments come to life under your fingertips – more intuitive, expressive and inspirational than ever before.
Browse and load sounds with the push of a button – KOMPLETE KONTROL manages the entire KOMPLETE universe in a single plug-in, thanks to the tag-based browsing system. Dig deep into thousands of sounds with ease, thanks to the unified browsing workflow of KOMPLETE KONTROL – limitless inspiration in a single plug-in. Search for sounds across all KOMPLETE Instruments using musical tags and keywords. Just press the Browse button, turn the push encoder to select your instrument, choose a sound, and go. The keyboard and all its features remain fully functional even when in Browse mode – never stop performing.
Don’t lose time mapping parameters to the keyboard. Native Map technology automakeratically maps all key parameters for each KOMPLETE Instrument to the touch-sensitive controller knobs. Everything you need to sculpt your sound – at your fingers and ready for your creativity. Native Map technology guarantees you don't need to worry about mapping KOMPLETE Instrument parameters ever again. Each KOMPLETE Instrument was mapped in-house by Native Instruments’ sound designers. All essential parameter names and values load instantly on the Clear View display, and are intuitively grouped into pages. The result: You see exactly what you’re editing directly on the hardware, whether it’s EQ in kHz or the exact frequency of a filter cutoff – without any setup time.
The innovative Light Guide shows you key switches, zones and more in full colour, depending on the instrument – key colour corresponds to cell colour in BATTERY 4, for example. The lights also provide performance feedback – see scales, chords, and arpeggios light up across the keyboard. Use the Light Guide to identify drum cells, key switches, phrases, and more at a glance – play every KOMPLETE Instrument in full colour. In scale mode, notes in the scale light up on the keyboard, with the root lit even brighter – perfect if you aren't a trained keyboard player. In chord or arpeggiator mode, all triggered notes light up when you press a key, so you always know exactly what’s happening.
Play chords with single keys or map the entire keyboard to musical scales. Activate chord mode and create a rich harmonic performance by playing single keys. Map chords simply by selecting mode and inversion, or by loading up a chord set – ready-to-play progressions to inspire and augment your own compositions.
Create melodies at the touch of a button with the advanced arpeggiator – optimised for hands-on performance. And bend, warp and automate sounds like never before with the highly flexible touch strips. Use KOMPLETE KONTROL’s arpeggiator to turn one note into a full musical performance – directly from the hardware and independent of the instrument. The eight controller knobs manage parameters such as direction, rate, rhythm, patterns, and variations.
Deliver dynamic performances with two ultra-sensitive touch strips. They can mimic the behaviour of pitch and mod wheels, and physical objects like springs and bouncing balls for interesting modulation curves. Or create instant shifts with different stepped settings.
The integrated scale mapping features give you instant access to a world of melody. See notes of the currently selected scale lit on the Light Guide, and set virtually any musical scale to the white keys. It will even re-map ‘wrong’ notes so you’re always in tune.
KOMPLETE KONTROL keyboards also feature extensive MIDI control for third-party instruments with the included Controller Editor software. Adjust touch strip behaviour, configure keyboard splits with Light Guide visual feedback, and create custom templates. When you use KOMPLETE Instruments and third-party instruments together in a session, KOMPLETE KONTROL automatically switches between MIDI mode and KOMPLETE KONTROL software when you select a track – uninterrupted workflow.
