Fantastic resource! A must for anyone new to Maschine!

For most DAW users the change to using Maschine for the first time can be very challenging, and difficult to understand the way that parts and patterns, and even a song is completed in Maschine if very different from the way that you would do it in a DAW. If you are having trouble trying to figure out how to put a song together with Maschine this tutorial is the answer to your problems!

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from 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.
