Native Instruments' Maschine is both a live performance controller and a powerful studio creative instrument. This course lasers in on how to build a complete studio track from start to finish using the amazing Maschine.
Mo Volans is world class musician, writer and music software professional whose creative contributions include original music for TV, film and recordings. His insightful writing is featured in many of the top music technology and pro audio magazines around the world.
First, you get updated on Maschine's latest hardware and software features. Mo then takes you step by step as he gathers his raw materials to begin building custom kits and patterns. Then, exploiting Maschine's seamless integration with Massive, you see how to design and incorporate a massively nasty bass part! Soon you're off to deploying Maschine's effects with a deep focus on distortion, dynamics, reverb, delay and EQ, to add clarity and depth to your overall production.
OK... it's time to build the arrangement. In this collection of tutorials you really get deep into Patterns and Scenes and uncover cool ways to expand and develop the various sections of your track.
In the last section of the course, you learn how to move your Maschine tracks to your DAW of choice (Mo uses Logic). This is where you expand the arrangement, automate, mix, and make your final tweaks before mastering your track.
Be sure to check out all of our world-class Maschine courses designed to get you quickly producing and performing your music using this incredibly powerful instrument!
This video series give you a good overview of a workflow in NI machine. It is a bit dated now since he is using Machine 1.8, and a lot of the things he is complaining about have been altered in newer versions of the software. Since a specific version of the hardware is mentioned in the title, I was hoping for a more hardware focused workflow, but he is mousing to much for my tastes.

Absolutely amazing course! It was 177 minutes, but I wish there was more.

This is probably one of the best courses I've had. Everything's covered, and by the end of it I already had 2 other track ideas layed down in Maschine. Explanations, follow-through, etc. is top notch.

Good for understanding Maschine's interface options in your DAW, but Mo does review a lot of basic material already covered in other vids, & I would have liked to see more on actual track structure.

Nice to see a project from start to finish. I skipped ahead more than usual b/c sometimes Mo got off topic. Glossed over some potentially confusing steps. Overall useful tutorial and nice presenter.

Awesome couse. Got me started on my Mk2 faster than I expected! I saw the Maschine Quick Start prior to this one, and I can say that this course is far more hands on. You won't regret watching this!

Easy and very well laid out course, goes over pretty much everything including earlier Maschine stuff. Thank you Mo Volans, another excellent tutorial :D

Very straight forward. Learned quite a bit. Even though they use Logic with Maschine, the techniques are easily applied to other DAWs. ( I use Live 9, personally.) Gratitude.
