Helpful to get you going

I enjoyed this series and think its good for a beginner. One thing to note is that he demos everything on a Maschine Studio, so if you are using a different controller your workflow could be slightly different.

Perfect for a beginner!

For a long time now I've been trying to find someone and/or a tutorial to show me how to build a song. This course provided exactly what I was looking for. I'll watch it a few more times for practice before trying to make one on my own. Good stuff!

Extremely helpful to get you up and running in no time.

I've been working with different DAW's throughout my career but Maschine was a new toy I really wanted to try. I knew it would take some time but with the videos from Groove3, a few hours were more than enough to understand everything I needed to know. Great stuff.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from just what I needed! This tutorial is great for getting started with a GOOD WORKFLOW for Maschine! I´ve been building beats in Logic the "traditional way" before, and wanted to get over to Maschine, to get an "instrument" so to speak. I started out by myself with the manual etc, and quickly realized the huge potential of Maschine, and its fast workflow, but also how it depended on doing things "the right way", and keeping sort of a "tidy" flow. You can easily get lost in all its functions, and end up with groups and patterns all over the place, and a huge mess of a project where its hard to put it all together. This tutorial got me started in a more systematic workflow, growing good habits for building my beats. I also got some new tips on things you can do, which was great inspiration for me as an semi-beginner. I watched the entire series in quick succession first, then worked myself through it following each step. Worked wonders!

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Very helpful Just got my Machine a month or so back. I've gone through this tutorial twice just to hammer these things into my head. I feel very good about my ability to put together a song now. The only thing I think it's missing is that it doesn't go into putting patterns together into scenes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Finally Un-Maschined !! Bought my Maschine years ago ( 'cause NI product demo video made it look like anyone can create a hit song in minutes). I got totally turned off after realizing ... it was far from the truth ;(. Too many buttons, hidden menus, complicated steps made it worse. The manual didn't help that much either. Finally, Groove3's Mic Thomas brought my faith back. His easy to follow, step by step instructions made it really simple to understand Maschine as I never thought be possible. Now, I can go 'head and make music as I always wanted. Honestly, his 'Guru' title is definitely well deserved. Cheers !!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Excellent! This is subperb. This is perfect for fresh beginners. Could there be more series exactly like this one with different beats, in the future? This would be a tremendous help if different video series were made showcasing different styles of beats and different techniques. Excellent, thanks again.
