How do I get started with Maschine?
Native Instruments make some stupidly wonderfully good pieces of production hardware and software. In fact, their ability to combine hardware and software for a seamless experience – think of djing with Traktor and its controllers – is perhaps second-to-none. If you’re keen to experience what Native Instruments can do for you production-wise and have picked up Native’s ‘Groove Production Studio’, you might be asking yourself “how do I get started with Maschine?”
Whether you decided that Maschine, Studio or Mikro was right for you, all are stupidly powerful and, while you can be up and running with them in no time, breaking the back of the learning curve can sometimes take a bit more time.
The how to get started with Maschine video playlist selection!
Fortunately for all of us Maschine users, Native Instruments are pretty handy with the ol’ YouTube malarkey.
Now, that’s not to say that they don’t know how to write a great product manual, but sometimes a quick video tutorial is a much nicer way to learn how to do those crafty sampling and sequencing things.
While all versions of Maschine use the same software, there are differences in how you interact with it, depending on which version of Maschine sits proudly on your desk.
If you’re a Mikro user, you’ll probably benefit from watching the Maschine videos to get a feel for the software, then looking at the Mikro videos to learn how the hardware integrates with the software.

As usual in this day and age, if what you want to know isn’t covered in the playlists, chances are it’s up there if you have a wee scout around.
Enjoy your Maschining!
