Maschine Expansion Packs - Opinions?

Hey Guys,

I'd like to know your Opinions about the Sound Quality of Maschine 2 and all the Expansion Packs.

I have a few of them. But to me they often sounds either really flat or overprocessed or simply just the same. Do you think they're any good? I'm just wondering if top Producers like Timbo, Pharell, JD, Rodney, Scott etc. would use them for Productions. Any Ideas?

i know exactly what you mean. the kits dont do the actual samples justice. they put so much processing on the kicks and snares that it makes them frequently sound underwhelming.

i get the most out of the exp packs by loading drum samples manually. the other type samples are fine to work with in the kits tho.

I like the kits the are open to your injects and tuning. They usually hide some socks samples behind preset loop settings. They work effortlessly and format well. And with the 25$ off they are a good value.

I actually only use Maschine for the expasnsions/lib.
I think they are quite excellent, tho different packs can sound totally different. Some very (over) produced, some very clean.
Overall not much to complain about for $25, specially for hiphop.

ok so which Expansion Packs from NI other 3.Party are your Favorites here? I find the Goldbaby One's (not from NI) are really hig Quality! They really fits nice into a Mix.
