Gear List

The standalone MASCHINE + is a Wifi-enabled sampler, a drum machine, a synth, and an on-stage superpower. Leave the laptop behind, jam with your other gear, and create beats in minutes with a wealth of on-board sounds, instruments, and effects.

Maschine MK2 & MK3

The MASCHINE MK2 & MK3 are sequencers, samplers, VST/AU plug-in hosts and multi-effect units used for beat-making and performance.

Ableton Push 1 & 2

Ableton Push is an instrument for song creation that provides hands-on control of melody and harmony, beats, sounds, and song structure. In the studio, Push allows you to quickly create clips that populate Live's Session View as you work entirely from the hardware.

Venice f24 Mixer

Vf24 is much more than a compact live audio console. The DIGI-LOG VF24 is the platform for a completely integrated audio mixing, recording and signal processing - thanks to its FireWire digital audio interface which is capable of supporting up to 24 x 24 channels of high-quality, 24-bit audio.
