I have learned how to use the fruity formula controller to control parameters in different plugins at the same time. Ive also come up with creative uses of the fruity limiter.

Re: Learning new things about your DAW

too much to mention, but i feel like i should add this to the thread...

regularly have a flick through your manual and learn something new about your DAW. even if its just one thing a week, all the little tips you learn add up and improve workflow and flexibility hugely.

I totally agree with this one. Even when I'm at work (dayjob...away from my studio) I might pull up the manual's pdf online and read through procedure I already am familiar with. Every once in a while there's a new shortcut or a different workflow that I didn't notice the first time. Then, I'm excited to get home and try it out.

I learnt some really cool things about massive recently and also just got Logic Pro 9 and a Mac after about 10 years of deciding to get one and loving it now!

Re: Learning new things about your DAW

A decent control surface for panning and volume, muting and soloing, can completely change your workflow. Even a cheap Korg Nanokontrol can open up all sorts of new possibilities. Having the ability to move 8 faders at once, and record the automation on the fly is pretty great.

I just learned how to route audio back and forth between Live and Maschine, it's such a great fun.

Re: Learning new things about your DAW

I learned something cool about the EXS24 in Logic to get a really wide, great sounding instrument. Take a plucked string sound for example. Next, copy the track, adjust the pitch +6 or more, and then adjust the tune -6 or more (for however much you raise the pitch, make sure you lower the tune by the same amount). detune this lower by about 5 cents. High pass at around 750hz and pan hard left. Next, copy the original track again, and do the opposite - adjust the pitch -6 or more, and then adjust the tune +6 or more. Detune up at about 5 cents, high pass around 750hz, then hard pan right. Play all 3 tracks at once and your ears will thank you.

I have also taken this idea and used it similarly with other Logic instruments. Works great for clavs.

How are you liking the maschine? For the price tag in your opinion?

A while back, I was deciding between maschine, the s2 dj controller or monitors...I got the s2 and I'm ready to sell the thing...I chose poorly.

Re: Learning new things about your DAW

Reaverb loads impulse response files. I was using voxengo boogex for years until I read about this. and Reaverb is slightly more accurate/dynamic in doing so.
