    Default Maschine or Maschine Jam

    Hi,

    Im trying to figure out which piece of equipment is best suitable in my situation. Hope to find some answers here.

    What do i have
    I have a Kontrol S4 on my Win10 pc. I also have a Kontrol F1 for samleshots/remixdecks. Recently i bought myself a Roland TR09 ryhtm composer and a Fostex 450 (analogue) mixer. The last two together are used to create an overdrive distortion because i simply love the 90's gabberkick. The masteroutput of the Fostex goes into a livedeck so i can live play with any song/sample/etc and combine it with a gabbersound and twea that gabberkick on the Fostex 450.

    What do i want
    I want to expand my posibilities with creating/composing. I want to be able to manually place a kick/snare/synth/etc and tweak the EQ live.

    What do i need
    The Jam seems to do that trick, right? If im correct you can tweak the eq with the strips on the jam. Then again, i also want to be able to make complete songs. As far as i know now you can combine patterns which create a song. Can that be done on a Jam as well? And if so, for what purpose is a Maschine controller? The pricetag difference is quite large, so there must be an obvious difference.

    Thanks in advance. And sorry if my english isnt correct.

    The Maschine Jam is designed to be used together with standard Maschine and due to more available buttons it is basically giving you insta access to some functions that you would have to usually use a combination of buttons in the standard Maschine work flow. Their functions are very much the same thing and both can also be used effectively as individual units.

    I was in a same boots and I picked Maschine Jam because of the touch strips (which are some of the best you can get for the money) and it's very potential MIDI Mode capabilities.

    So it is still possible to record a sample into the Maschine software while using the Jam-controller? Or is the best way to record the sample on the S4 and bring it into the Maschine-software?

    And how about the TR 09 rythm composer, it has midi in and out. The Jam doesnt have a midi in or out..... in what way can i connect it to the Maschin software?
