Great tool!Alexander on 21.01.2019
Although there are some definitely lacks in usability vs Maschine MK3, but overall it's just a great tool, especially in combo with some Komplete Kontrol AXX (which provides you all the knobs you may need).
I was a bit confused with feedback of pads (that was kind of first pads i used), and although I believe they are pretty good, i was expecting some sensitive feedback like from physical button (and here it's just hard to say if that's pressed or not, well, w/o sound). But I've used to it in 1-2 hours of usage.

Not a Midi ControllerUser on 21.10.2018
The description to this product is WRONG. The Machine Mikro MK3 can only control it's own software and cannot control any external DAW via MIDI whatsoever. This is officially stated by the NI website. They claim to be working on MIDI Control in a future release. The MK2 Mikro does have the Midi controller capability. Also, you only get 1.6 gigs of samples and not 6 gigs. All in all, this is a nice little controller if you don't mind being tied to the Maschine software that it comes with.
