I absolutely have the fact that I'm asking this question, but I've been stumped for YEARS now trying to figure out the sound. Chopping up samples and laying down breaks has never been the issue, it's been the part of taking a crispy clean sample and making it "sound lofi." I don't have a lot in the way of plug ins, still using Maschine 1.8.2 (using 10.9 OS X still on my laptop), and needless to say it's hard to make things work with these limitations and lack of knowledge. I've attempted to get around this issue by recording my samples on cassette tape, but I rather not have to go through such a lengthy process to create that sounds. I'll probably have to do so in the end, but it doesn't cover the other issue I'm having. The other issue is I'm trying to get a better handle on side channeling after I learned how to do that through FL Studio. It honestly blew my mind away hearing my kicks sort of push down the sounds of the samples so the drums came through more. I have absolutely no idea how to make that work with Maschine 1.8.2. Yes, I've watched the videos on youtube, and no they didn't help all too much, hence why I'm on here now asking. I'm hoping people on here are willing to share some tips on the matter. Ultimately I want to better understand how to get that lofi sound, under stand it better in terms of production and sampling, and most of all have it be something I can make work in Maschine 1.8.2 (R247).
