Native Instruments’ Maschine is a perfect fusion of hardware and software. See how this amazing hybrid instrument will change the way you make music...
In this first of a series of tutorials by Native Instruments Product Specialist, Matt Cellitti takes you through everything you need to know to get started with Maschine. You’ll get a grand tour of Maschine’s hardware and software interfaces. Here you’ll learn how to set it up, get around and begin making music. This tutorial displays both the software interface and the Maschine controller at the same time so that you get a complete look at how these two integrated pieces work as a unit!
First, Matt explains the software’s different workspaces: the Browser, Arranger, Control and Pattern Editor. You’ll learn how you can efficiently use these software tools to maximize your creativity and workflow. Next he explores the hardware. You’ll learn all the controls on this dynamic desktop instrument and how to perform advanced editing functions and make music using Maschine’s menus, controllers and pads.
Now it’s time to record. You’ll soon understand the ins and outs of recording and performing masterful MIDI patterns in Machine’s unique production interface. Matt goes on to explain the different quantizing algorithms and cool overdubbing techniques.
What about arranging? Matt takes you there in the next section as he shows you all of Maschine’s thoughtfully implemented tools for quickly creating complex arrangements. There’s even a bonus section on automation and creating fills.
If you want to learn about Maschine, then learn it from the best “Maschinist” on the planet! Join Matt Cellitti in this first of a 3-part series, “Maschine Quickstart” and
master this hardware/software hybrid monster in no time flat!

Good start for maschine. I got mikroMaschine for months, but it helped me to overrun some bad habits: I was using the controller only to play and the software interface for the rest. I forced myself to find how to do the same with mikroMaschine as in the video. It speeds up the workflow in many cases.
Just got my NI Maschine and wasn't quite sure about the purchase until I started the Quick Start course. Only halfway and I'm already thumping on the pads like some pro. Good course...
Great tutorials, easy to follow in simple step by step guidance. Highly recommended! Looking forward to the masterclass. 5 Stars *****
Good overview of the interface for Maschine - software and hardware. Covers sounds, groups, scenes, sequencing, etc. I don't even own one - I just wanted to figure out what this thing does!
The BEST and when I say the BEST it really is! Need a foundational knowledge of the both the software and hardware controls and controller? This is the BEST series ever! Matt Cellitti whom I a fan of explains every detail clearly and precise. If you're not the type to read manuals (in which the Maschine actually comes with on how to use the DAW and Hardware), then this is the PERFECT video series and pretty much all you'll ever need for foundation! Bravo for a PERFECT instructional series! It is absolutely the BEST! And btw did I tell you that it is the BEST?!!!!!
this is by far one of the best on line courses I've ever taken this course really helped me understand machine
Excellent course to go through even if you have some know how in Maschine. There are some tips and shortcuts I didn't know that sped up my workflow. Matt is an excellent instructor.
Great quick start guide. I watched it right after I connected Maschine to my Mac Pro for the first time. I like the pace of this tutorial as well as the other two Maschine tutorials from Matt Cellitti. This tutorial suffices if you want to learn quickly how to use the features provided by Maschine. There is a lot of knowledge shared over the three tutorials, which I will definitely revisit while experimenting with Maschine, Komplete 8, Ableton Suite 8 and other software and hardware that I own. I wish all the product specialists out there would have the depth and knowledge of their products like Matt does. Thank you Matt and macProVideo.com!
the chapter titles do not match, recording, for an example said one thing, but when you go to it, it's has a diffrent name, for some reason
Need a better support section for streaming video. Randomly, I can't get lessons to load. If there is already a page developed in support of this matter, then it needs to be easier to find. Otherwise, I love the lessons and would happily rate with 5 stars!! Keep up the good work.
Matt does a great job of communicating what would otherwise be retty dry and technical material. It would be a good idea to provide some digital highlighting to some of the mouse/cursur movments. Also it would be helpful to include any required shortcut for Mikro users.
This class was well taught though i found the organization a bit disjointed. The course was also rather short, though it was titled "quick start". Of the four main sections of the course two were spent as a verbal walkthrough of the SW and HWand two were spent actually doing exercises. The most effective courses for me spend very little time telling and more time showing and doing through exercises. Overall a good introduction.
This is an excellent tutorial for both Maschine beginners and people who've already had experience with Maschine. I know my way around software and hardware, but there's no better way to learn than this tutorial. At first I knew absolutely nothing about Maschine, yet by the end of the tutorials I could operate Maschine intuitively without a mouse. Great job Matt Cellitti!
I just got Machine and was kinda intimidated by the manual, so I checked out Mac pro video and found the Machine mega bundle tutorials. I have finished the quick start lessons and have two more to go. I have a good foundation from the quick start tutorials and can't wait to get in to the next videos. Matt's hands on demonstration really helps get the concepts across. thanks
I bought this tutorial because I had just purchased the Maschine Mikro and found that there was very little info available about the basic principles, workflow & how to make best use of this unit. The tutorial was very good but I felt it was just a little rushed in some areas. Not a major criticism as the tutorial served it's purpose which was to give me a basic understanding of how to use this great device. I would recommend this tutorial to anyone new to Maschine /Maschine Mikro. It revealed a lot of under the hood stuff that you wouldn't find just by playing.
Having recently decided I'm gonna purchase Maschine in a few weeks time, I decided it would be great to learn this product b4 I actually get it. Beat based production isn't something I've really done b4 via a MPC type of device, but can see the benefits of adding this capability to my studio. Watching Matts videos has enabled me to be even more excited about getting my Maschine & feel already I'll be able to get going as soon as I get it out of the box. Thanks Matt 4 the excellent videos. Also love the fact you left in a few bloopers! Please do more toots ;)
Excellent quikstart. In just an hour and a half Matt will have the beginner recording beats on the groovebox. Great resource for anyone starting out with the Maschine. Thanks Matt!!
Excellent tutorial! This was very clear and the information was not overly technical. It is perfect for beginners and some intermediate users. I have had Maschine since Dec 2010 and although I have made tracks on it, there were workflow things that I did not know until I purchased and viewed this video. I am looking forward to the next videos in this series!!!
This covers the basics very detailed and thoroughly. I'm an advanced user so I am actually waiting to dig in to the masterclass release so that I can check out anything new that I may have overlooked or haven't tried yet. Great job Matt Cellitti
