In this video Rsonist talks to Dubspot Instructor Shareef Islam about his creative process and how he produced the hit single “Dipset Anthem“. Like a ton of other producers who came from an MPC background he often struggled with the Maschine. He explains not really having the patience to learn it so he ultimately abandoned the Maschine. But from watching this, I noticed that when he began to get the information from Islam on how to operate the Maschine he became more engaged. This only confirms that we as humans find comfort in familiar territory. All of the new “Hybrid” machines coming out pretty much do the same thing, so it all boils down to workflow. Once you learn how to navigate around any piece of gear, it becomes that much easier to get your creative thoughts out.
In closing, if you own a Maschine and have not spent the amount of time necessary to learn it, you will most likely end up in this same boat. This can be said for any other equipment as well. If you are the type that learn better from watching others in action, there are plenty of tutorial sites available for you. MaschineMasters.com would be a great place to start!
