Now in version 2.
13, Native Instruments Maschine has seen improvements that have taken it from the humblest bnings when it comes to song arrangement, to a flexible and fully-featured line. Following on from the Complete Guide to Maschine MK3, which covered all of the basics of working with the software/hardware combo, Producertech Senior Tutor Rob Jones now returns to use the latest version to produce a Future Funk track from scratch.
Rob bs the course by building up the beats, which are created using a combination of step and 16-velocity modes, editing events and processing sounds with insert and send effects entirely from the hardware. He then works his way through all of the melodies, starting with the main chords progression, played with a Vintage Organs preset, and then adding pads, leads, arps and bass.
Percussion and Vocal samples are then sourced from Loopcloud to show how easily the free app integrates with Maschine, and how sounds can be imported and worked into patterns using Maschine's Audio device. All parts are then woven together into an arrangement, starting by creating scenes in ideas mode, before moving into song mode to lay them out into sections along the line.
Rob also shows how patterns can be converted into clips, the most recent big addition to Maschine, making arrag even more flexible and intuitive. The course finishes up with a look at the next steps, whether that's exporting audio to obtain a completed track or stems, or routing sounds into the DAW.
Signing up to the course provides immediate access to the streamed tutorials, as well as the project made along the way and even a bonus Maschine Kit made exclusively for the course. Check out the sample module before signing up for an example of the course style and content.
