MASCHINE JAM is the modern digital instrument - your shortest avenue from inspiration to reality. Capture ideas and create tracks in an intuitive production ecosystem.
Sequence and arrange on the fly with an 8x8 multicolor click-pad matrix. Shape and perform sounds in inspiring ways using eight dual-touch Smart Strips. And bring it all together with the power of the included MASCHINE software.
Explore melodies and harmonies with the click-pads using MASCHINE's Keyboard mode. Just select your scale and chord values to start playing. The Arpeggiator can turn simple melodies into intricate melodic patterns.
MASCHINE JAM is the go-to instrument for building tracks with immediate, intuitive sequencing. Flesh out your ideas by constructing and re-constructing with patterns on the fly, and group them as scenes you can arrange from the ground up. When you're done, you can quickly import audio from MASCHINE into your DAW for further refining.
Step sequencing not only works for rhythms, but also for melodies. Use MASCHINE JAM's powerful Piano Roll mode to program notes directly with the 8x8 click-pad matrix.
