Then you took my statement completely out of context from another forum and brought it here. I am sure this forum doesn't need drama from another forum.

Stop worrying about me. Do you even own any of the products we discuss here? Focus further comments on these products.

* Note - anyone spending all their time talking about products they don't own looks silly.
As much B.S. as jah talk, he has managed to stay pretty diplomatic about shit, so i give him that.

I've recently been moving towards using electronic drums in my band. I've got a korg nano pad that we've been using to play drum samples, but feel it's time we upgraded. As we're pretty keen about it, we're looking to skip any in between stages - akai mpd 26 etc. - and go straight to something with more functionality. I have looked into the Akai mpd 32, and compared it against the Apc40, but felt the former lacked the looping/controller functions of the latter (given the lit pads if anything). The Apc, on the other hand, lacked the drum pads as it's 'own discreet instrument' element, serving primarily as a controller, and for studio production. I felt a middle ground would be ideal, which is where MASCHINE came in.

I suppose my question is which of the multiple versions of MASCHINE would suit me best? I noticed there doesn't seem to have been any mention on the thread of the Mikro versions?

Money is a factor; I aim to spend ideally less than £200 (on ebay), but am willing to be persuaded I needn't spend as much, or the opposite. Essentially, if you'll excuse the rather mundane example, I'd like to achieve a Jamie xx style performance (of the band The xx), but with greater live loop making functionality. If that makes sense. Note also that, I am new to production in general, and really a shoegazer-pedal-lover with a desire to venture into a more electronic sound. I've started a three-piece with the nano pads, guitar/vocals, and a synth. Any help would be massively appreciated. The MASCHINE looks great, I'm pretty bloody excited.

1.8.2 update now available

The free MASCHINE 1.8.2 update is now available for download. The update contains a number of improvements that make working with MASCHINE even more straightforward and intuitive, including:

Optimized sample start and sample end editing
‘Duplicate’ function now identical in MASCHINE MIKRO and MASCHINE controllers
The 1.5.3 update for the Controller Editor, improving the stability of all MASCHINE templates for TRAKTOR PRO, Mackie Control, and Ableton Live 8. Caution:

dude I'm honest don#t think that the Ren is a bad tool or anything like that it's very nice that there are 2 Products than can be compared so both Ni and Akai need to keep their stuff fresh.
but i compared alot Maschine/Battery, different MPCs/Maschine and Battery or just as audio file in the daw. and it was all the time the same or verynear to each other...

I seriously don't know what is going on in this thread. It is like it was run over by bunch of a teenager girls bashing each other K-pop idols. Why do other people give so much crap if someone is using Maschine or MPC?

If money is objection then Mikro is perfectly fine and frankly pretty amazing deal if you can get the first version without the christmas lights ~ 200 bucks.
The software is exactly the same in all versions and the controllers are basically two way USB "midi" pad controllers. So every version will be able to do exactly the same.
With full version of controller you don't have to touch mouse almost at all - everything can be clearly done from the controller.
With Mikro you would need to use the mouse - while most functions can be also accessed from mikro, it is far more elaborate with multiple key pushes. Not to mention that you have to remember how to do it in first place. The full maschine controller is self explanatory.

Does anybody know how the swing works in Maschine? There's 3 spots to add swing, Master, Group, and Sound.

My question is are they cumulative meaning if master 13%/group 7%/sound 5% = 25% total swing (This is what i think is going on) or does it default to the highest setting (using the same example above) = 13% total swing.

Great Question!!! I was actually thinking the same thing recently. Is it really cumulative or does it just default to the highest setting?! Anyone care to shed some light on the topic?!

ive been using maschine for a bit now, and im wondering if i am ever going to turn my mpc on again. ive heard people say this before, and now i'm saying it.... so!.... it guilts me a bit because i love my mpc, but the cohesion of all my softsynths with maschine really is incredible. and for someone who works all in the box like my self it is the perfect piece of kit hands down. as far as mk1 vs mk2 go's, i think mk2 blows mk1 out of the water. ive had both. mk2 color coding is super nice. until your actually using it you dont realize how nice it is to have. screen has better build/components. buttons, and pads have a better feel to them. more solid usb connection. love the one big knob. ok i guess im finished.

Not possible, although it would be a great feature. I guess NI figures that you should be sequencing in Maschine so no need to export slices.

No sir, before I sold my mpc I was in need of this option because I despise chopping on an mpc.

I actually just spent a half hour trying to figure this out on the Maschine, but theres no way. Your just gonna have to throw them into Audacity or whatever pre-Maschine program you use and just make the cuts by ear and with visuals. Then Export each one individually with the export selection option. It seems tedious but in actuality it doesn't take very long at all.

Remember, the better and more efficient the set up is. The easier the arrangement and mixing will be.
