Hey what’s good fam. If you haven’t downloaded the latest Maschine update you can grab it from Native Access.
The update is 2.6.5 and one of the main new features is a change to the arranger, specifically, the addition of “Ideas” view.
Basically, it looks like a software version of Maschine Jam, it lets you quickly try out various combinations of patterns within a scene before you actually commit to the timeline.
It’s definitely a move in the right direction and allows you to test out different combinations without thinking about how your song will be laid out. Honestly, this way of working as been a major reason I’ve used Ableton Live for so long (and more recently Bitwig) as I dig the ability to just come up with ideas without thinking in a linear fashion.
Anyway, if you have any specific questions about this or the latest update feel free to ask or request a vid.
Have you tried it out yet? If so, let us know what you think below!
