Thomas Cochran delivers in-depth video tutorials on advanced note sequencing with MASCHINE MK3. See the basics and more advanced ways to handle MIDI notes in MASCHINE, and get helpful tips for creating your own musical parts and ideas.

Thomas begins with a brief introduction, and then goes over the goals of the course and what will be covered. You’ll then get a quick overview of MASCHINE’s sequencer interface, including the difference between patterns and scenes, as well as their functions.

Next, you’ll see how to sequence rhythmic patterns on the MK3 controller and edit note values in the sequencer via the menus, and screens on the controller hardware.

Advance drum programing is then shown, including how to add subtle variation to patterns with velocity automation, swing, and how to sequence “off the note grid” to create a more natural feel and or shuffle groove.

Thomas then reveals how to program melodic elements on the MK3 controller, as well as how to setup and adjust scales and chords on the hardware, plus how to enter in pitch automation to make for a more exciting lead pattern.

Then go deeper and learn how MASCHINE’s pad shift functions can be used to modify patterns in the sequencer, as well as how to automate instruments and effects with the MK3 hardware for complete sonic control.

Wrapping it up, Thomas puts everything you’ve learnt in the series into a creative video, showing how to program parts quickly and easily, but most of all, interestingly!

If you have Native Instrument’s MASCHINE MK3, knowing your way around the note sequencer is a must. Get comfortable with sequencing MIDI data on MASCHINE, speed up your workflow, and produce and write songs quicker… Watch “MASCHINE MK3: Advanced Note Sequencing” today.

Thomas Cochran electronic musician and multi instrumentalist from Austin Texas, who now lives in Los Angeles. He focuses on creating electronic music that features both ambient and classical influences.

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I started playing music at a young age, starting with classical guitar. This started my love for music and eventually expanded into learning other instruments as well. To date, I have had over ten years of classical experience and training as well as additional instrumental experience.

2. What training have you had?

I grew up studying classical guitar and composition and eventually started applying my classical knowledge to learning other instruments as well, ranging from violin, cello, keys, and drums.

3. When did you get intro recording?

I got into recording out of necessity when me and some friends started a band back in high school and couldn't afford studio time. Through this, I learned about music production and recording and haven't looked back since.

4. Why are you so good at training people?

I love learning about the technical aspects of music production, this helps me understand the how music production works under the hood. I have also worked for several years creating music production tutorials online.
