the maschine is def a powerful tool...I won't be trading my gear in any time soon, but I may be copping something like this to use when traveling in combo with a laptop...that's the real power of it imo is that you can take the studio with you, but overall when I'm in the studio I don't see a need for an all in one solution...that's why you got a lab full of gear

had my eyes on the maschine for years since it came out. I don't doubt its capabilities. I wouldn't give up my standalone hardware for it though.
