Up and Running with Maschine 2 Video Course


“This is the first course I created with Lynda.com, the purpose of this course is to provide a thorough introduction to using Native Instruments Maschine 2.

It’s aimed at those who are brand new to Maschine, or those that want a full run-down of Maschine from start to finish. The movies in this course cover the basics from setting up preferences to actually recording your first patterns.  The only requirements for this course are a general understanding of audio and MIDI connectivity.”

Maschine bridges the gap between controller and DAW, combining hardware and software in one connected package. In this course, JK “saintjoe” Swopes—the producer, educator, and man behind MaschineTutorials.com—shows you how to get started creating your own beats, hooks, and harmonies with Maschine. JK demonstrates how to set up Maschine and its many plugins and preferences, and then load the sounds, samples, and instruments you’ll use to make your music. Next, he explores creating and recording patterns, using the mixer, and applying effects to sounds, groups, and the master bus. The course wraps up with a look at arranging, saving, and exporting your songs.

  • Configuring Maschine’s preferences and settings
  • Loading sounds
