Maschine with Komplete Kontrol
Dec 19th, 2020, 09:22
It's really nice that NI gives you a version of Maschine (2.12.1) along with the Komplete Kontrol keyboards. The only issue is a lack of educational material tailored to using the software with that controller. I find myself repeatedly going through the lessons here picking and choosing, making decisions about what applies and what doesn't. A web search for articles and videos isn't very revealing either. I know my learning style is way too plodding with software since I have to always fit things into a context and I have to practice while I'm watching (I suck at applying compartmentalized data), but this makes it harder to grasp basics. NI could help things by putting a specific guide or cheat sheet in the manual for it. I'm not sure if technical writers are people or bad AI. I don't think it requires another course, but maybe an addendum chapter or two using just the keyboard might be helpful. Maybe someone else has these troubles too and really wants to get the most out of the package and pull less of their hair out.
