Outstanding workflow! I’ve been playing with drum machines and groove boxes since the first SR16 to several of my MPCs. I have a DSI Tempest (love it!) and have worked a fair amount with Ableton Live. That said if I lost everything and had to start over there would be no question where I would start: Maschine. It’s so well thought out, infinitely expandable and almost a full blown DAW. For six bones you get what would have cost tens of thousands back when everything was dedicated hardware. I would also highly recommend taking the Maschine course at Dubspot. All of the above are money well spent!

Raul Ceja says:

Starting with Music I wanted to do music as hobby for a long time. I went and did a lot of research into the messy and complex world of electronic computer music generation. I decided for Maschine over all other similar consoles and I have started using it. At this time one month after buying it I can say I have zero problems and zero disappointments. My level of excitement continues to rise with this product and the possibilities to make music are very high. I was planning to buy a DAW but I haven’t yet because at this moment, and several months to come, I will keep my music adventures only to Maschine. So bottom line as a beginner in the beginning days I am very very pleased.

Words cannot describe how useful this thing is Let’s be honest; music creation is intimidating to get into. DAWs are complex and it seems like you need a PhD in audio engineering to even get started. That’s where Maschine shines. Maschine lets you create and improvise with ease. You can load up individual sounds or entire kits in one of the most intuitive browsers I’ve used in any audio-related software. You can even load in VSTs/AUs, like the included Massive Synth, or even third-party ones. Don’t like the compressor that comes with Maschine? Use what you use in your DAW! Maschine comes with all the effects you’d really need (bare-bones wise) but being able to customize is really nice. The best thing about Maschine though? You can access just about anything in the program from the controller, and you get almost all of the feedback you need from the controller itself. This makes Maschine feel more like an instrument than a clumsy midi controller. Its integration with the software is second to none. But you want to control your DAW too when you use Maschine in plugin mode? No problem. Shift+Control brings up midi mode. With preset mappings for Live, Logic, and other major DAWs, you can have an excellent midi controller with LED feedback ON TOP of an excellent controller for the Maschine plugin. Just one layer toggle away. The pads are incredible and offer great control over even synths. The color-coding on the mk2 is a godsend as well, making it easy to mentally connect each pad with a sound. The ergonomics and intuitiveness of the entire controller and software program as a whole were just inviting. Everything Maschine has to offer COMBINED with the fact that you get several gigs of sample content bundled with the package, AND you get Massive, one of the best synths out there right now… Just for the difference in ease of workflow, this was worth the money twice over. It’s THAT good.
