Get started with MASCHINE MK3 now! MASCHINE wiz Sami Rabia takes you from newbie to power user in no time, covering everything you need to know to get started using MASCHINE MK3 and make beats and productions.

Sami welcomes you and then goes over the basic layout of MASCHINE’s software user interface, highlighting its main features and functions, then walks you through setting up configuring its Preferences and Options.

MASCHINE’s powerful Browser is then looked at in-detail, allowing you to look for and save sounds and presets, as well as how to import your own personal samples and use them inside of MASCHINE, giving you a truly endless world of sound to use in your songs and beats.

Plug-ins are next, and you’ll see how to load and manage them inside of MASCHINE, including both NKS formatted plug-ins and regular plug-ins, as well as routing them and your audio and effects.

MASCHINE’s powerful Pattern Editor is then revealed and explained, allowing you start making cool sequences and laying down ideas right away. Then it’s on to MASCHINE’s hardware controller, and after watching, you’ll know how to browse, load and edit sounds all from the hardware, as well as use the transport control for playback and record, and other functions.

Last but not least, Sami teaches you all about the Keyboard and Chords modes, and the Step Edit function and Touch Strip, which are great compositional tools, making programming parts fun and inspirational.

really hard to follow for a beginner.

I'm kinda muddling my way through this and trying to follow along and notice that it goes WAY too fast and I get frustrated that what's happening in the video doesn't match what's going on in my copy of maschine and notice he's clicked something or done something that he hasn't mentioned and I have to rewind the video and look for what he's done five, six times. Not the best. I'm in the third video and I'm lost already. Way too much information way too quickly for a total beginner.

Beautiful for the basics

Great course for the very basics of Maschine when just getting started. Much easier to learn Maschine when you know the layout and how to navigate the hardware and software before you get into its many capabilities.
