Very clear basic introduction

I have used MASCHINE off and on over the past few years. As a hobbyist I don't play often enough to remember all the little details and features. This series of videos did a great job of reminding me of how to run my Maschine and I learned quite a few things I never knew.

The best of all the Maschine videos I've seen

I've been all over YouTube and other tutorial sites checking out their Maschine videos, but this was more clearly presented and thorough than any of them. The order of topics was natural and logical, and the insights to the otherwise possibly overlooked use cases of many of the features were invaluable additions. I cannot recommend this highly enough to new users of Maschine. Maschine Jam users would benefit as well, even though not all of the buttons of Maschine correspond exactly -- it is the presentation of the concepts that is so well done as to make it worth viewing for "Jam" users.

Comprehensive Mashine course at the right pace

Course was well paced and comprehensive. I have used Maschine for over a year now and was surprised the amount of new things I learnt such as Grid mode and Select modes.
