Organize Drum Breaks Library in Maschine

    Hi all

    My Maschine has been collecting dust for some time, but I want to bring it back (even if Maschine still hasn't add stereo to mono playback options, which my 2003 MPC does :mad:)

    I want to sample, chop and save my drum breaks collection in a way I can load them from the maschine hardware. What's the best way to keep a library of samples in Maschine to use it within the Maschine environment? Can I store the samples in a dedicated folder and tag them?

    That's what I did with my sample collection, so yes you can.
    Just filter by user content to access it quicker.

    You can use a free mono vst plugin to make your track mono. Which is not ideal. Especially considering some dumb idiot at NI decided to have the mixer before the plugins in the signal. So now if you start panning, it doesnt do anything because the last part in your signal is the mono plugin. Rookie design choice.
    Only valid solution is to use external audio editor or resample through a stereo tool.

    As for tagging, you can tag all you want! No problems there. You will be tagging for hours. You also kind of have to as you can’t browse folders from the hardware.
    Let’s hope now with the addition of Maschine+, Ni will finally come to their senses by implementing a normal everyday folder browsing option. I would go completely bananas if I’d have to tag a 32GB SD card filled with samples on the Plus

    Just add the folder with your samples to Preferences > Library > User, your samples will show up under it's own (blank) icon in the User Browser, then you can tag them to your heart's content. Sub folders work as Banks.
