Hi!
ok with the joke, ; )

but....

Do you really think you can control ableton better with maschine than apc?

Because...that the thing....

Or,...

Is maschine, in general, better than ableton?

I think, maschine is a good complement to ableton. But (again):

Whats THE device to control ableton ?????

For me, it's an APC40 with the nativeKONTROL scripts. The only thing I miss are motorfaders.

Never tried Maschine, seems to be a great thing for the beat-makers out there, but controller-wise, I can't imagine it could be anywhere near as sturdy and comfortable as my APC is right now.

APC40 is probablty the best off the shelf option there is still (for a practical single units - so I dont count combo of novation zero + lp as its a horrible on mess stage) - that doesnt mean I actually think its well thought out or couldnt have been tons better - especially for the silly money it costs (yes I have one).

Could you please explain nativeKontrol scripts, how it changes the performance of the APC and the benefits of those changes. Sorry, I'm a little out of the loop apparently. Thanks.

I'll try the google also :)

Not to diminish the joke, but the APC40 always worked perfectly for me. Is this not the case for everyone?

Maschine is definitely not about trying to compete with the APC40 as a Live controller.

The whole of Maschine itself is a viable alternative to Live's session view as a production and live performance tool. It has some key advantages in that you can actually record realtime automation to clips and do things like looping multiple scenes and having a completely mouse-free workflow. One thing it doesn't have yet is built-in timestretch but that has become less of an issue now that it hosts plugins.
