New production computer.

So I've been using macs for years. My latest being the 2011 MacBook Pro. 2.2 i7, 8gb. Of course I love macs. Everything about them. From the hardware to the os. I'm starting to have issues with my pro though and feeling like it's time to get a new computer. I really don't have thousands to spend on ...

Re: Need a new computer for production

Im really not interested in the newest Pros with the touch strip. Mailnly because of the lack of connections. Oh yeah? OWC DEC .

Re: Need a new computer for production

Mine is the 2011 15 inch quad core 2.2 ghz. Ive never had any issues at all with it but it is recently starting to run a little slower than normal. Im running Live 9, Komplete 11, Serum, Maschine, etc. Its def doable and not crazy slow but I want to upgrade soon. Im really not interested in the newe...

Need a new computer for production

So, I know people have different view on this subject but Im asking anyway. I have a 2011 Macbook Pro. 2.2 gHz. Intel i7. 8 GB. RAM running 10.9.5 Its still working quite well but I do have occasional issues. First off, is it cool to update to Sierra? I use Live 9, Maschine 2.6, Komplete 11, Serum, ...

Re: What's Your Workflow using Maschine and Ableton

Drag and drop. Ive tried everything to use Maschine as a Plug-in in Live but it never works out well. I love Maschine stand-alone!
Plus I use Push so..........

Re: 128s

Yes. 128's are amazing. They've become key to my work-flow.
Time consuming but totally worth it!

Re: I have Push 1 - should I upgrade to 2 -?- worth it,?

You all are right. I've pretty much decided already that I'm getting it. I have OG PUSH and Maschine Studio. The Maschine is nearly perfect but as we all know, the arrangement capabilities are lacking. The Live/Maschine work-flow has never been great for me either. I just run both stand alone then I...

Re: Ableton Live 9 and Machine 2

I'll continue to use Maschine as a writing/inspiration/jamming tool. I've accepted awhile ago that it is what it is and I either use it or ditch it. I can't ditch it. I love the workflow too much. Of course I'll continue to hope that NI will improve it but if not its whatever. I upgraded from the mk...

Re: Ableton Live 9 and Machine 2

That's a cool performance technique but it doesn't really address the problems I have. My problem is the limitations of the arrangement when making tracks. Like the auto doubling of bars. I hate that. I wish the automation was lanes that are drawn instead of the lines at the bottom. That's just two ...

Re: Ableton Live 9 and Machine 2

I also got a KOMPLETE KONTROL S49. As much as I like it, it really just adds another layer of bullshit to everything. Plus it's redundant if you have Maschine. I think I'll probably sell it. NI marketing gets me every time I swear. Anyway, does ANYONE out there have an elegant or at least usable Mas...

Re: Ableton Live 9 and Machine 2

I do love Maschine and basically use it as a (ridiculously expensive) sketch pad. I play guitar and consider myself a "musician" so I value the ability to play an instrument. That's why I love Maschine so much! It feels like an instrument. It's something that I get better at the more I practice. Ths...

Re: Ableton Live 9 and Machine 2

@BeatsME- I totally agree. I have been trying for years now to use Maschine in my workflow. It's just always seemed like I was forcing it. I don't understand why NI can't make it easier to use Maschine inside a DAW, or sync w/ Traktor, or just function as a drum kit on 1 track in a DAW. I want to LO...
