First off, I was referring to how you want Maschine to behave as if was designed to be a full blown audio editor and not what it actually is, and how how you don't want how it actually works for what it's supposed to do to get in the way of that (which you hilariously described as a "work around"). Secondly, if you were making a feature request for Maschine, why are you posting it here?starving student wrote:first off, in your post you told me repeatedly that the way I want to use maschine is not the way it's supposed to be used, in effect that my feature request are not appropriate.
It seems more like you just needed to say "I never understood folks wanting to get rid of their mpcs for maschine" and that "the mpc on the other hand is the greatest stand alone instrument of it's kind". That's all you needed to say instead of going on and on. We get your point.
Go back and read what I wrote. I never said anything about that. Look, no matter however you try to spin it, Maschine's workflow is FAR SUPERIOR to MPCs, period. It's just so much faster and there's no annoying things like having to constantly stop the sequencer to make changes.starving student wrote:why do you think you need to view more than one page for sequencing on the mpc, I know you're familiar with simply highlighting the sequence line and scrolling up or down, is that what you are calling a different page.....thats not a fair comparison.
You can have up to 128 samples per sound/pad in Maschine. Think about that for a second.starving student wrote:I would prefer 99 kits to 8 kits of 128 samples
Don't put words in my mouth. Who said "muting is perfect"? Or that it doesn't "need any improvements"? I said that it is "Much better than MPCs or APCs for being able to mute/solo by group and by sound instantly (crucial for live performance) from dedicated controls on the hardware." Sequencing mutes is a different matter and you can achieve the same thing if you understand how to work with different patterns and scenes. And of course it would be great if Maschine also got that feature eventually, which is very likely considering how active Maschine's development cycles have been and being mostly based on actual user feedback.starving student wrote:why are you telling me the muting is perfect and I don't need any improvements, as a matter of fact I need to be able to sequence my mutes,
What the hell are you talking about?starving student wrote:unless folks like you stop ni from developing it further for god knows what reason.
All you had to say was that you were a MPC fanboy and that it is the greatest thing ever and how you can't understand why anyone would ditch the MPC for Maschine.
The way it does freezing makes sense and it works for me. If they make it even better, easier, would I complain? Hell no. Too bad it's not good enough for you.starving student wrote:i would rather have maschine freeze samples right in place on the pads they're getting mangled on, just like every daw freezes tracks right in place on the specified track
Yup. Like I said, you can layer up to 128 samples per pad.starving student wrote:and what do you mean you can already use it as an editor, can you layer up a bunch of samples on a single pad and effect that pad and then simply export that pad? if so that's great!
