    Default I want to buy a maschine. but...

    I would reallly like to use one on its own and in traktor before i commit myself to another 300+ purchase. The apc40 was a half decent purchase for 290 but ive rarely used it. only making two songs so far purely form faffing about with loops, and thats in 5ish months

    There is currently nowhere around my area with a try before you buy music shop with MIDI instruments etc. so ill give a few questions to you guys,

    Now i have absolutely no experience with drum pads, all ive seen with machine is that guy in the advert pwning a drum solo, like i could manage that within a year? anyway, can you load your own sounds into maschine and padkontrol ( i dont just mean to use padkontrol as an example im meaning the whole range, MPD's etc) can you use the others as a midi device like maschine?

    Also, i know maschine has seperate modes for midi controller and the drumpad, but could i have half the pad as a sampler and half midi controlled?
    like the top 8 buttons for samples, and the bottom 8 for synch, loops FX on/off.

    NI has like 15 or so different videos on their youtube channel talking about all the things Maschine can do. Have you watched those?

    Its just not what machine does, it what it does that others dont do, why i sohuld fork out nearly double for a maschine rather than a MPD

    check the videos and have your questions answered. maschine is really about the software combo, it's much more than a pad controller.

    There's is nothing like a Maschine it may resemble regular old drum machine, but it's not. For one Maschine comes with 5 gigs of GOOD sounds. Seriously watch all of the tutorial videos and you should be able to begin to wrap your head around it.

    These guys are some pretty heavy hitters and they love it.

    Correct me if im wrong but the MPD24/APC40 are just MIDI controllers....where as the Maschine is a WHOLE new beast...

    To my knowledge it is the only one of its kind at the given moment. It's a seamless and beautiful sampling/drum machine fusion of hardware and software.

    O.o what? Yes you can load your own sounds into it, what does the padkontrol have anything to do with this? Honestly, like everyone said watch the videos and look up KnockSquared on youtube he makes some phat sh!t on using his Maschine. Truthfully I am really not sure if you fully understand what the Maschine is. Now i'm not trying to knock you just judging from your outlook on it thats what im getting
