Honestly, the only thing you really need to get started is a computer and a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation...that's going to be things like Logic Pro and Ableton)
Having a Maschine is nice (I have one), but is by no means necessary when you're just starting out.

If you're really looking to own a piece of gear like that, the Maschine Mikro will do just fine for you. You could also look into getting something like an MPD24, which is significantly cheaper and serves a similar function.

Maschine is great because it comes with an awesome sample library (also has it's own software), but you can find tons of great sample libraries for free all over the internet.

The gear you use isn't going to have a huge impact on your music right now. If you're really just getting started I'd say maybe try to save up some money and just spend your time getting as proficient as you can in whatever DAW you've chosen.

I'd also maybe recommend a midi keyboard as a good starting piece of gear...but if all else fails you can just use the keyboard on your computer to punch stuff in.

Try not to get too caught up in the equipment you have right now, it's easy to get distracted by whatever piece of gear you don't have, but as long as you've got a computer and DAW, you're able to get stuff goin well enough for you to get accustomed to the software and even make some solid music!
