It's just a controller and software, it doesn't have its own audio ins or outs so the sonic quality of what you sample in and play back is determined by your audio interface.

It does have filter emulations of vintage drum machines like an SP12 to impart some 12 bit character, plus a nice selection of FXs that can be assigned per sample.

Except that it's far more than "just a controller and software".

No...its a controller and software. Seriously awesome controller and software, that'll do a million things,but essentially - that is what it is.

At least that's all that came in my box...

Did I get gypped?

No, I mean that calling it "just a controller and software" can be misleading because there is no other "controller and software" that even comes close to what Maschine provides.

when I drag patterns from Maschine to Live as audio files, the original timing is gone..
and I really mean gone as in off by sometimes even a beat..

are there known issues or am I doing something wrong here?

cheers..

edit:
solved..

goto: File> Export Audio> have 'Loop Optimize' checked..

Try turning off the grid before you drag 'n drop. Grid button + pad#16
I read something at NI-forum, that it might affect even recording...so grid off there too, for real live feeling.

yep.. the 'Loop Optimize' option did the trick..

still don't understand why there are two possible rendered outcomes..?

Well, mine finally arrived but so far its not much of a success unfortunately..

It started with the DVD being not getting recognized. Turned out that my drive didn't grok the copy protection, but an old Linux box could read it. So well; ended up with imaging the entire DVD and using the image to install (brilliant copy protection scheme indeed :roll:).

Yet now it turns out that knob 4 has a live of its own. iow; when you try to raise or lower the pitchbend of a pad the value is extremely jittery and its impossible to turn this to the maximum value without the value shooting up and down.

Same applies when you're using it in the browser to select a subtype; its sometimes impossible to make a direct selection...


Has any of you ever had issues like this, or experienced oddities with the dials as well? So far the dials are the only part I don't fancy; they don't feel very solid for some reason..


Anyway, apart from the dial issues the device itself looks and feels very slick indeed, I already managed to setup a template which gives full control over a Live drumrack whenever you switch to midi mode which makes it really fun (and easy) to use both Maschine and Live.

And yes; the pads respond a lot better than those of my mpd24, man what an extreme difference that is..

Anyway, thanks for any insights you can provide me.

Hold down SHIFT when turning knobs for finer adjustments.

Thanks, but I was aware of this one already.

Its not so much fine grain control, its having any control at all ;)

Even with shift pressed I can turn dial 4 (pitch bend) clock wise and end up with a lower value. I don't think this is intended behavior (or at least I hope now).

if it's a hardware thing, return it..
I returned mine twice, got a new one each time.. :)
