    Default FINAL: PRE maschine post

    A while back i had a thread questioning about purchasing the maschine because i wanted to get into producing....many told me to stick to a DAW with just a computer & mouse...

    I ended up doing that and making a couple songs but never finished them about 1/2 done with most..now my question is I think its time to move on and get the maschine cause i feel that it would make my production life easier & better

    what do you think should i get the maschine ?????
    (btw, I can get it at GC for $415, new, non-educational )

    I always see these threads "should I buy this" "is it a good idea", just because your asking about it tells me you want it. People are going to have mixed opinions about items and your probably going to get mixed opinions. And if you really want it get it, dont like it? Take it back at 415$ who are you trying to convince us or yourself the machine is a great piece of kit and you probably won't be disappointed.

    Maschine is great, hands on, allows you to put beats together quickly. The next version will host VSTs too.

    What it currently isn't brilliant for is finishing tunes due to the sequencer. I find myself tracking the channels out into a DAW eventually.

    People on here told you not to get a Maschine for production? Maschine is a great production tool, get it.

    well they recommended to get it, but they said its not the beginners way into production...so they said first just do everything with keyboard & mouse with your DAW of choice then get the maschine

    but just the fact that maschine has 5gb of sounds and it seems user-friendly is selling me right there... I'm probably going to pick one up today

    Is that update going to be at no cost to those who already have the Maschine? Is there a link to what this update is going to include?
