How to play chords in Maschine pad mode using Kontakt

Yo what’s good fam! In this tutorial I show you how to use Maschine’s pad mode to play any type of chords you want, directly from the pads, using Kontakt.

I know a lot of people want to be able to quickly play chords in Maschine and if you have Kontakt there’s definitely an easy way to do it that doesn’t involve midi routing at all.

I think it’s a feature many over look but it’s definitely something I suggest you dig into and experiment with.

It will allow you to play chords with ANY instrument you have loaded inside of Kontakt, it’s not tied to the instrument so you can change your instruments in the instance of Kontakt and still be able to play your chords

Heck, you could even start your recording with Kontakt sounds using the chords, and once you have that midi sequence data you can delete Kontakt and replace it with any other instrument or plugin you wish.

Lots of possibilities here, I just wanted to make sure you were aware as I usually don’t hear folks speak on it and when I mention it I get the deer in the headlights look
