Re: To maschine or not to maschine

I have had some GAS on this for a while, but havent really got myself around to buy it yet!
I have seen many people using it live, but is it as good to use in studioproductions as using it live on stage? And also..its basically just a midi controller right!? You cant sit in the sofa with ONLY the Maschine and make beats!? You need a computer plugged into it as well?

Re: To maschine or not to maschine

Its been really helpful and the sounds are top quality, check the dubstop site they show how to integrate Maschine/ableton and maschine/traktor together. Routing is simple, specially in Mac.

If you want to make beats while sitting on the sofa you just need two pillows

Re: To maschine or not to maschine

For anyone considering buying a Maschine, first ask yourself if the ability to import midi is important to you... [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]

Re: To maschine or not to maschine

Another question about Maschine... the front and back of the box says "Komplete Elements free download after registration" but I've registered and it's nowhere to be seen. Anyone know where I might find it?

That's what I would have thought too, but still no email after almost two weeks. No response to my ticket enquiry through their website either. Hopefully will hear back soon...

Other than that seems like your getting fucking in the ass, mine was pretty much instant

Korg Padkontrol & Nerve Drum Set is pretty good, but I think the Maschine is better overall... even if it does cost more

Well, that's not entirely true. You can't directly import MIDI into Maschine. You can however send MIDI data from a host program to Maschine. I often import the MIDI data into Live and then send it to a Group or Sound as required.

Really? That's odd. I usually get a reply from Native Instruments within 24 hours. However, I know there have been some issues with their back-end this year so it might have gotten lost. I would recommend putting in another ticket for registrations AND sales (as, essentially, this is a sales enquiry).

If you don't hear by next week, PM with the email you contacted them under, I'll see if I can get in touch with someone

Hmm, I haven't heard anything about issues with synching. Can you be more specific? The only time I have had issues with synching is with when running as standalone and synching with another application (Like Traktor) or another laptop. But that's not a problem exclusive to Maschine.

I can't recommend Maschine highly enough. I'm a technical producer, but I prefer more traditional workflows, centred around recording as opposed to programming. From a creative perspective, Maschine was great because it took me back to my early sequencing days - where the MPC would just run in the corner and you'd move between instruments creating sounds and storing them.

It's very easy to use out of the box. However, to really harness its power, there is a significant learning curve. This is particularly true if you have had no experience with MIDI hardware in the past. However, once you get the hang of it, it's an extremely powerful tool for controlling your entire studio. That being said, I would like to see each group get its on MIDI i/o in a future version as opposed to one global MIDI i/o as is the case at present.

Thanks Jaded. Will wait and see if I've heard back from them by next week. Otherwise if not I might also follow up with someone from [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]
(the Australia distributor) and see if they can pull some strings. They've helped me out with a couple of enquiries before and been quick and friendly.

Ta for pointing out the midi work-around too. Yeah I need to spend a bit of time working out the Maschine-Logic integration. I have Logic but have never spent the time to work out how to use all the midi and automation features (which I know are powerful but there's a fairly steep learning curve that I haven't had the tenacity to see through yet).

I was hoping to be able to mainly use Maschine as a stand alone, but to really unlock its full potential as a remixing tool it seems like using it in conjunction with Logic is the way to go.

I must say I'm liking the Maschine overall though.
