This course is a guide for beginners who are not familiar

with the Maschine software and would like to make music

without being limited by their lack of knowledge on the software.

Also, I will teach you how to work with the Maschine Mikro.

Many tutorials online are about the Maschine Studio or the regular

Mk2 and none really cover how to use the Mikro.

In the first section of this course, we will see learn the Maschine

software interface. Once the learning of the software is done, you

can move on to learning to Maschine Mikro.

I recommend this course if you want to learn the essentials of the

Maschine Software and would like to save time by directly controlling

most of the interface on your Maschine Mikro.

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is meant for people who are just starting to use the Maschine software and would like to have a reference guide. It's also for folks who have been struggling with the Maschine Mikro interface and would like to produce music without being stuck to the software all the time.
