Many people have asked for ways to use Maschine as an audio editor.
Meaning they want to sample and chop, but export the chops, not the full wave file.
The way Maschine handles chops, it just sets the start and end point in the full file, so when you save a kit in maschine from a sample you created, it’s all referencing one file, just with different start and end point on each pad.
In this tutorial I show you how to create individual wav samples for each slice/chop you have, so that you can export them for use in other programs or for creating kits that you can share with others.
Some prefer to chop in Maschine but sequence with Exs or other programs, or load their chops into Reason, etc.
Everyone uses Maschine differently, there is no right and wrong way, just do what works for you!

yo, how do ppl make their own drums. like u know how traumah does it? i kno maschine isnt really tht friendly when it comes to tht
stack, layer, eq, record random sounds, put them together, synths, many different ways
wat program tho? like which program wud u use
Any program, you can do it in maschine, flstudio, cubase, reaper, whatever you want.
Loving that method SJ I would never have found how to do that myself, thanks fella
Glad to help!
Thanks learn something new everyday.
word fam, have fun
Yeah I Knew That! LOL..Good tip I definitely will put this into my workflow..Once Again Thanks, Bro!
hahahaha, no doubt fam lol, enjoy
No doubt family
Thanks for the knowledge fam!
No doubt my dude!
Dope stuff SJ
Thanks fam, glad to help
Good info Joe….very nice. Thnx.
No doubt fam, glad to help! This works if you’re building kits from various folders too and you want to move everything into it’s own folder for sharing, etc.
Great Tip & Info.
SJ is a beast.
Thanks fam, glad you like it!
nice one 😉
hey sj when u made this new group with ur chops ect… when u pres apply does it automaticly a make pattern like urs did in this video? im sayin this becuz mines doesnt do that when i press apply wondering if theres a setting somewhere for that
anytime you hit apply, maschine creates a pattern for your chops. I used my own pattern for exporting chops I don’t use the built in pattern maschine creates.
so basically u have a save pattern specifically for chops like this ? thats dope becuz thats kinda like time stretchin ur breaks with that one pattern… any way u can give that pattern setting for us.. lol that would be great… im currently choppin all my breaks ive colloected over the years and savin them in maschine
maschine by default creates the pattern, it’s automatic, nothing I did. The pattern I used to export slices is my custom pattern, it’s the Slice Export Tool I put at the end of the post. Open this on any group you have your slices in and you can export the slices.
Hey SJ, I believe this video link is bust up!
Got it bro, thanks for finding them man, it really helps lol, man we have so many videos on here dude lol
is there a video like this but for maschine 2?
The process is the same in maschine 2 as well.
Is there a way to do this direct from the Maschine+ hardware? And would you also be able to share a video of how to do this on newer Maschine software as the format of things seems to have changed?
Hey Sam, in Maschine 2 it is much easier, this was actually a workaround before we were able to save groups with samples. In the current software you would truncate your chops how you want them on the pads, then save that group with samples. All the chops would be in your sample folder. If you’re using Maschine+ in standalone mode then you would do the same then, save the group specifically with samples. I’ll work on a video showing the process in the current version of Maschine software but we no longer have to go through this like we… Read more »
Thanks for the quick reply saintjoe
At the moment though when I follow the above steps and include samples when saving a group, it still only saves the longer recording from which my one-shots were edited, it doesn’t export the edited slices. Is there a step I’m missing somehow?
Hey Sam, you’ll want to truncate the chops. Since Maschine is non destructive by default, the chops just reference the sample until you truncate them.
I had some time this morning to put together a quick video showing the process, hopefully you find this helpful.
