        If you think that Komplete Ultimate is impressive then wait until you see the collectors edition... Oh my!!

      Best way to learn Maschine? Hook it up, start the -standalone- program and just experiment and go wild! Tip: shift-record!

        I love this... this evening I managed to record my first beat using the Maschine VST (in Live) and it made me realize the above. Learn Maschine (software + hardware) first, then focus on the VST some more.

      Had issues with my Maschine going on & off, replaced the USB cable: perfect! I _love_ how Maschine tells you what to do to make it "work"!

        "Please start MASCHINE, CONTROL EDITOR or press SHIFT + CHANNEL for MIDI mode.". I _love_ it!

        In fact... I'm even seriously considering to upgrade my whole home studio to the next level with Komplete Audio 6.

      My Maschine Mikro is on its way back to Germany (return product) but my new Machine is on its way to me. So will they cross their paths? ;)

      Awww.... My Maschine is expected to arrive on Monday, so I'll have to wait a whole week before I can play with it. Oh well :)

        Unfortunately I don't have much time during the week to spend on my synths, so I was hoping that it might arrive today. Well, at least I got something to look forward to :)

      When the boys in Berlin tell you about an "Ultimate" edition of their product then they're not kidding :D

    I'm your classic Synth geek :)

    Around 2010 I had made up my mind: I was going to get a Synth. Of course at that time a synthesizer in my idea was a keyboard with dozens of knobs. As I always do I studied before purchasing and decided that I really liked the idea of having a soft synth vs. hardware.

    I bought into Ableton Live 'suite' (because of the instruments), an APC40 midi controller and even though I had no clue what it could do I also bought Max for Live as well. Then I learned the issue of sound engines and that made me decide that I should add another engine to my setup for expansion purposes. The general consensus in the Ableton 'camp' was to go Komplete but because I never focus on "commonly done" stuff I decided to go with Reason 4 instead.

    Of course that's not saying that I didn't recognize the potential that Native Instruments had to offer, heck no, and it didn't take long before I bought into Komplete Elements 7, long before it got nerfed (from 5 or 7 Gb library to 3 iirc). I still have the box today but I'm too lazy to check :)

    This setup did wonders for me.

    Fast forward to 2019...

    I did a few upgrades over time, I got to appreciate the NI players and then I had a nice break which allowed me to upgrade all my stuff. I replaced the APC40 with Ableton Push, I upgraded all my major setups (Ableton 10, Reason 10 & Max 8) and then Reason 11 happened....

    Reason 11 drops ReWire support (which is a huge part of my setup) and instead provides the "Rack VST" which you can use in other DAWs. Just too bad that it doesn't come close to providing the common Reason workflow (at the time of writing, 15/10/2019).

    That made me decide to look into alternatives which would be more reliable in the future.

    And then I remembered N.I. & Komplete....

    I bought into Komplete 12 to expand on both my Live & Reason setup and consider me impressed. I then replaced my MPD24 with the Maschine Mk3 and also upgraded Komplete to Ultimate. And to top things off my gear will be using the Komplete Audio 6 as of today.

    And that's where I am.. Ableton 10 Suite (this includes Max for Live), Max 8, Reason 10 and my latest stuff: the Maschine Mk3 backed by Komplete 12 Ultimate.

    It took me (nearly) 10 years but now I'm a true believer. This stuff is huge.

    Signature

    With kind regards, Peter
