One of the main uses of Maschine is the sampling, chopping, and manipulation of various types of audio data. These tutorials cover all the different ways you can manipulate and work with audio samples in Maschine.

Focusrite loopback sampling setup for Youtube, iTunes, Windows Media, and System Audio

I use the Focusrite Saffire pro 24, and it seems to be getting popular among Maschine users. Well I’d say Focusrite in general, because of their flexible routing and good sound. The first question I usually get is how to set it up to sample from youtube, computer audio, etc. So this is a quick […]

How to export slices and chops as individual wave files

Sample playback and pad cutoff options

Timestretching in realtime using UVI Workstation or Kontakt 4

How to apply fx when sampling into maschine
