Editor’s note: Each week, Cory Perla of The Public asks a local musician to tell us why they love their favorite piece of gear.

JeffRepeater is a local DJ and electronic music producer. He opens for the funk band, Lettuce, at the Tralf Music Hall tonight, Wednesday, Nov. 12.

“Native Instruments Maschine is a software and hardware hybrid which provides for a flexible creative audio environment. The MIDI and sampling capabilities allow me to keep innovating creatively. It is also usable in the studio with the Maschine software for producing and also to trigger cue points and FX in the Traktor DJ software to play live, or any other MIDI capabilities for that matter.” – JeffRepeater
