MPD32 or MASCHINE

for live performance? probably for production too, but more for the former.

any thoughts? are they even the same thing? i feel like maschine would be the better route. but i want to do everything from it, efx, loops blah blah blah. i have an apc 40 i guess that could achieve stuff too. but i like the idea of pads. anyway.

tell me now

If you don't know what the difference is, you probably don't need either.

Re: MPD32 or MASCHINE

Scyn's got a point.
If you don't even know the difference between the 2, you don't need any of them.
Have you tried reading some reviews?

One is merely a controller, the other is almost a full daw.

Let's play a game, if you can tell me, after a bit of researches, which one is only a controller and which one is a production centre, I'll answer your question more nicely, but if you read at least the 2 articles above, yo won't need my answer anymore...

Re: MPD32 or MASCHINE

course I read reviews just seeing what some of the members here personally think. stop trying to be overly elitist it's incredibly exhausting. Idc about random reviewers, and have considered some blogs and write ups etc but I like this community and what some of the people think. sorry I didn't specify boiz

Re: MPD32 or MASCHINE

From this sentence it looked like you didn't know what you were talking about:
"are they even the same thing? i feel like maschine would be the better route. but i want to do everything from it, efx, loops"

If you want to do everything from it, only one of them will allow you to, as the other is just a pad controller, they are not the same thing at all...

Re: MPD32 or MASCHINE

If you just want to midi-map things in Ableton, stick with the MPD32, though it's not gonna add much more functionality than your APC40. If you really need/want pads, there's always cheaper options like a Korg PadKontrol or an MPD18. Maschine is overkill for straight-up midi mapping duties.

Re: MPD32 or MASCHINE

The maschine is really good nowadays.. after the 1.8 update things started working. I bought mine secondhand and after the update it stopped "hanging", which has been a big issue with the maschine..
It has an excellent way of controlling clips, but looking at the maschine software/plugin, you have an instrument which sounds like Native Instruments.. I've never tried the mpd32 but I have the mpd24, and always felt a bit limited by it.. but most experience and new ideas has come from trying different approaches through different hardware solutions, so if you feel like you haven't tried enough different solutions - try your way around. you can always sell it second hand and get it fairly priced that way. I don't know if I'm making sense, but for me there's just so many posts you can read, and so many opninions, but you need to make your own judgement at some point, since it's your money, it's your choice how many ambitions you put into the whole "making music".. I'd really wish the internet had another dimension.. being able to feel and touch, but until now.. go down to a store and check it. Don't get to caught up in the sales person. Find your needs, try different approaches (you can actually do quite a bit with a fair share of midi knowledge) and then decide.

Good luck!

every now and then i see people complain that the maschine had this really annoying problem that everybody had but its fixed now.... really they probably just had a computer that couldnt handle it properly

Re: MPD32 or MASCHINE

aah I see, hah!

Back to topic.. maybe you should consider Abletons "Push" solution when it's out instead of the maschine?
