We wanted a way to give our members a structured way to access some of the main ideas in one place. So we created the Maschine Course area. What you get is access to a course outline to help you move along in your Maschineability. (we like that word)
The course outline does not contain everything within the MT database, it is simply intended to give you a concise collection of some of the various topics throughout the site.
We suggest you use the topical category menus along the side of the website, the front page where all the newest tutorials will show up, as well as the search box at the top right corner, as a means of accessing more of the content we have within the community.
The main idea behind Maschine Tutorials is to provide a living, breathing, growing, “Machine Encyclopedia”, which allows you to access the content you need without having to go through a specific order. However, we know many do like to have an outline of topics, especially when getting started, so that’s what the course area is for.
As we are constantly creating and adding new tutorials to the site, we will mostly likely come up with more main ideas to group into a related “course” , in which case we would add that here. Remember, the “courses” are just organized outlines of some of the stuff that is already here on the site, presented in a list for quick access. These “courses” by no means represent the full amount of content and topics available on the site. They simply represent a group of related topics that compliment each other well for a specific skill level, concept, or purpose.
