  2. how can you play the entire track with all scenes together?

    philipzebulon10, 1 year ago

  3. the little grey bar directly under scene name.. drag the right arrow across to the end of your last scene and that should do it! thanks for watching!

  12. the Massive was emailed to you. whatever email account you registered with NI, you should have an email with Massive and your serial.

  13. Can you put two paterns of the same group in the same scene, so they play back at the same time?

    calminprogress, 1 year ago

  14. no you can’t, you can only do 1 pattern per group in a single scene. Example, You can’t have patterns 1 & 2 from group A on scene 1.

    James Jaxin, 1 year ago

  15. Nice tutorial! But how do you do the snare and hi-hat symbol roll to work in machine?

    FLAWLESS603, 1 year ago

  16. How can u get maschine to do the hi-hat and snare roll?

  17. will be posting more tutorials for requests on maschine masters dot com the site launched tomorrow!

    Maschine Masters, 1 year ago

  18. Hi! I have to thank you so much for the tips that you give in these videos, they are wonderful and much useful. I would like to know how to solve a specific problem that I have found using Maschine: When I have to make up the group for my samples (chops) and my drums I have noticed that in certain cases you cannot use the same space in the chromatic scale of the midi if some group has assignied alredy that space, this would make the sound overlap, but in certain cases this doesn’t happen, why?

    Fides GROOVISIONARY, 1 year ago

  19. kinda like ableton style , but great work, only problem with maschine is rate and sample rate latency, its really strong ..

    Jayjae Martinez, 1 year ago

  20. That sample is fire bro!

    Jihad Baracus, 1 year ago

  21. great stuff. how do you edit a scene without playing it if other scenes are already playing? also, what does the retrig option do?

    Alexander Copp, 1 year ago

  22. How can I use transitions sounds from pattern to pattern. Like beam sounds or cymbal rolls?

    TheHubbyboy, 1 year ago

  26. thanks for the video! I still have questions about scenes how do a I create a new scene once all my group a-h are used. I not sure what the scenes actually do? Im little lost can you help me out?

  27. johnny biggs

    this song/scene mode whatever to me is so damn garbage, maybe once i get used to it and get my own lil way on how i’ll work it then i’ll start to like it, but as of right now i’m missing my mpc song mode

    johnny biggs, 1 year ago

    • MaschineMasters

      I know your frustration bro.. but like you said once you get use to it the workflow is much faster in my opinion. Thanks for checking us out!

      MaschineMasters, 1 year ago

      • johnny biggs

        the ony thing that bothers me is i cant copy a squence and then mute out sounds and have that only for that sequence, it mutes the pad for the whole group

        i have to go into each pattern and delete the sounds out manually which is a hassle, maybe theres a way to do what i’m tryin, if there is i havent figured it out yet

        johnny biggs, 1 year ago

  28. Avatar of robloc

    im new to maschine an was only use to making beats on a triton, ok i made two beats on maschine but everything is on scene one how do i move things aorund by the way im using maschine mikro mk2?

    robloc, 1 year ago

    • MaschineMasters

      Need a lil more detail as far as what you are trying to move.. trying to add more scenes? change patterns? etc.

      MaschineMasters, 1 year ago

  29. im a new user to machine but when i put the scenes together theres a break there before it plays through.. only thing i can’t seem to get right. the timing!

    kevo, 1 year ago

    • MaschineMasters

      Sounds like when you recorded it started at the end of bar instead of beginning.. check to see if midi notes are at the beginning if not quantize them or drag them over.. hope this helps

      MaschineMasters, 1 year ago

  30. I can not find my click on maschine

    SideWayzEntLLc, 1 year ago

  31. Hold Duplicate, press the pad you want to duplicate then press the pad you want do duplicate it to.

    James Jaxin, 1 year ago

  32. Hold down pattern, on the left screen you will see the amount of bars to make the pattern, turn the knob below it.

    James Jaxin, 1 year ago

  33. scenes are how you create a whole song within maschine. even you’ve used all your groups you can still arrange the scenes how ever you see fit. to just to another scene eitehr click the scene, or hold the scene button and press the corresponding pad.

    James Jaxin, 1 year ago

  34. Hold shift, then press play

    James Jaxin, 1 year ago

  35. still not 100% on that I must be truthful!

    James Jaxin, 1 year ago

  36. place em how you see fit. Usually those sounds are at bar 4, so just go ahead and record them in at that point.

    James Jaxin, 1 year ago

  37. Yeah boi!!!! And I didn’t play this at the battle…. smh….. should have. oh well

    James Jaxin, 1 year ago

  38. I’m not sure I understand the question.

    James Jaxin, 1 year ago

  39. I only have a Maschine Mikro and I have the same problem
    How do I change the bars without copy pasting?

    Rudy Levassor, 1 year ago

  40. Are you talking about your Polyphony settings? If you don’t want certain sounds to overlap then change your polyphony group to 1 and your Choke group to 1 on the sounds that you don’t want to overlap, each pad will trigger off after you hit another pad. But also change the Pitch/Gate to Oneshot or ADSR. Not sure if this is going to help or if you already knew this..maybe you were talkin about something else? Hoping I got it right! (:

    TLil21, 1 year ago

  41. You know that first 4bar scene for your intro, then it transitions to your second 4bar scene? Those 2 scenes are identical right? Do they sound different because you changed the Pitch?

    TLil21, 1 year ago

  42. Thank you For the reply Much appreciated I’ve solved it Yo!!!! ;))

    Fides GROOVISIONARY, 1 year ago

  43. I have 38 patterns on one bank.. Is this some sort of maschine glitch? Looks like I can make unlimited patterns.. Is this normal?

    DkdcOfficialChannel, 1 year ago

  44. you can actually make 64 patterns per group.

    James Jaxin, 1 year ago

  45. those are 2 different scenes. I chopped the same sample 2 different ways. And placed the 2 different patterns on scenes 1 and 2

    James Jaxin, 1 year ago

  46. The layout of maschine sucks I like reason way better….. But good beat by the way

    sazkwatch, 1 year ago

  47. I thought I was the only one with videos like this – 5*z

    hiphopsamplez, 1 year ago

  48. Every system accomplishes the same thing, creativity. There are just different ways to get there. Reason is an awesome program and I use it myself along with Maschine! Thanks for watching and thanks for the compliments on the track! Keep Rawking!

    James Jaxin, 1 year ago

  49. What about automation in patterns? I’m having hard time differentiating automation from pattern 1 to 2.. any comments sir?

    rushikesh vyas, 1 year ago

  50. you could just record the automation all at one time. select all scenes and just go from there

    James Jaxin, 1 year ago

  51. What trying to achieve is this: Group bassline1: Scene1: Patt.1 – automation on cutoff Freq.(low to high) at one certain freq. I want to continue same notes in scene 2: patt. 2, I copied patt1 and pasted in patt 2. deleted the automation which also deleted automation in patt.1, am I doing anything wrong or that’s how it is?? thank you, really appreciate your comments…

    rushikesh vyas, 1 year ago

  52. In other words, is automation a global parameter applied to all patterns or you can have individual automation painted out for each pattern you create, thanks again::)) cheers..

    rushikesh vyas, 1 year ago

  53. AAAA, as far as I know, its all invidual. I’d have to look into it deeper

    James Jaxin, 1 year ago

  54. after you make a pattern….how do you loop make it repeat

    EarlxOFmusic, 1 year ago

  55. I have a question, if your pattern is aleady at longest 4 bars and you want it to be 16 for a verse how do you do that?

    andrewmast60, 1 year ago

    james kaso, 1 year ago

  62. gotcha! dope stuff thanks

    TLil21, 1 year ago

  63. great tutorial bro. just have one question: how do you copy a pattern? thx

    4ChristJesus, 1 year ago

  64. Hold down duplicate and pattern, select the pattern you want to dupicate, then select the patter number you want to duplicate it too.

    James Jaxin, 1 year ago

  65. 3:40 they won’t play ”simultaneously”, but sequentially

    good break down nonetheless

    juanxxxtwoxxxthree, 1 year ago

  66. you can do it with the micro…what he said^^^^^^ press& hold dwn the pattern button and and on the screen you will see double dubl 4 short if on the micro.. press F1 right above it..

    Jorge Villalobos, 10 months ago

  73. Lets say you made all your patterns in scene 1 but you want to move some of them over to scene 2 or 3 how do you move them over????

  87. set the sample polyphony to 1, and create a pattern of only 1 bar and trigger the sample on the 1,2,3, and 4. Make that your first scene, then on scene 2, have your normal beat come in!! join Maschine Masters dot com

  95. Hey I got the Maschine Mikro yesterday but I can’t figure out how to change
    how many bars are in a patter, any advice?

    MattValentinee, 8 months ago

  96. Hello James, thanks for your video! I’ve had a Maschine Studio (first
    Maschine ever) for just a few days and can’t find any instructions on how
    to copy a pattern (I’m used to calling them regions) into the same scene on
    a different instrument. I can copy to other scenes no problem. I think it
    has to do with the pads but my navigation of the hardware just isn’t there
    yet. I’m used to right clicking on regions and getting lots of options but
    instead the pattern dissappears. ha! Thanks for any suggestions.

    Michele Bunker, 7 months ago

  97. After making different patterns in my groups, how do I place them to play
    in scenes?

    Richard Gibbs, 7 months ago

  98. Ok I just subscribed. GREAT video. Very clear. The only thing I would have
    liked to see was the actual assigning of scenes. I didn’t want to see you
    play the patterns (which you didn’t, thank you), but seeing you create the
    arrangement would have made this perfect. Thanks!

    Zack Corley, 6 months ago

  99. Great video, very helpful. I noticed how when I try to switch between
    scenes using the pads, they switch write away and ive seen videos where the
    scene doesnt switch until the end of the measure, does anyone know how I
    can change that?

  103. I’m sure this is a really simple question but how do you play the whole
    track through from beginning to end? I always just hit each scene as I
    reach them otherwise they loop. It says in the video that you hit both
    scenes together, but unless I missed it, how does the whole track play

    jonv0305, 3 weeks ago

  110. Ok, so i get scenes now, but I still have 1 issue. When I put my
    sound/sample into a scene perfectly, (say, scene 1) and I duplicate it
    into scene 2, and 3 and so on, it does not sound right when playing
    together. Instead of sounding like smooth looping, it sounds as if it is
    stopping quickly, and playing again. How do i get my scenes to play
    together smoothly? Thank you. -Chris

    Chris Charleston, 1 week ago

  111. What if you don’t want it to loop back? For example, if you want a drum
    pattern to go 4 instead of 8 bars.
