    Maschine is really straightforward. Go for it!

    I have got to beh onest, I totally underestimated Maschine. Mainly use it for the Step Sequencer & midi-mapping capabilities now. Wish I had the dedication to get the best out of it, though.

    Maschine is fucking AMAZING. I literally make all my beats and everything in Maschine then drag and drop it into Ableton to complete tracks. It does take a while to get used to it though, it has so many cool & crazy intricacies, and it's awesome that you can run most VST's in it as well. The only thing I don't really like about it is when you use Maschine as a VST inside Ableton, it lacks a lot of the original control & functionality that you can use when you use it as a stand alone. And to mess with vocals / edit vocals in it, it's not the best, this is where a DAW really exceeds. But i'll NEVER not have a Maschine for production.

    I'm actually selling mine to upgrade to the MK II right now (I like pwetty colors!)

    do the right thing and ship it to South Africa, hahah. if you dj with traktor you could have a ton of fun loading samples into each pad which means you will have 16 pads*8 groups= alota fun, plus each pad has it's own effects which means (16 pads*2 effects)*8 groups=Even more alota fun, plus you can sequence hit's by using the 16 pads which means ((1 hit*16pads)16pads*2effects)*8 groups =double the even more alota fun, which ends up being a noise but hey alota fun.

    I only really use mine when playing Techno, I'm running the same setup as Richie Hawtin, Dubfire etc.
