This week, Native Instruments, the brains behind hardware such as Maschine & Kontrol and production software, Reason, are hosting two events across England and Ireland to celebrate the release of their Maschine Mk3 and Komplete Kontrol Keyboard Mk2.
This Thursday (5th October) you’ll get to have a play around with the new gadgets in a store local to you (list below) where there will also be a NI Ambassador present to demo the gear and answer any questions you have.
Then on Saturday or Sunday (depending where you are) if you make music or have friends who do, NI are hosting a meet-up which is a free day of workshops, collaboration, tips and tricks. A great way to learn and also network(!)
List and sign up links are below, be quick though, there are limited spaces! And let us know how you get on!

“Bass does something to me. I absolutely immersed myself in Drum & Bass during my teens and early twenties, and when Dubstep came along I was thrown into that love once again, not just the music, but the whole community surrounding it.
Working in the industry has been a dream for me, and being involved in such a vibrant scene means that I constantly come across incredibly talented individuals who I just want to shout about and that’s what I use the UKBM platform for, to promote talent whether known or new.”
