Sometimes I like to use my DAW for controlling everything but use my Maschine controller as input for some synths. I do this because as far as I know, S1 doesn’t support Maschine Hardware as a controller. You have to download something etc. ? So the easy way is this workaround if you don’t want to use the software and only the controller as input.
I have only the Maschine mk3 Mikro. Maybe bigger Maschine’s are better supported in S1.
I show you how to setup ANA 2 as an input instrument for any synth you want. Some synths don’t have an arpeggiator and if you already have ANA 2 you can use it this way.
Don’t get me wrong – of course, you can use ANA 2 alone for making music, it is a monster of synth and this shortcut is a bit of an overload. Anyway, have fun with it. Use the Arpeggiator and CMD module together for endless possibilities.
I made a short video about fxpansion Geist2 and how i use it to remix a loop to customize it for my use. This is the first video of more to come. There are already a lot of tutorials out there and i hope my videos will help nevertheless. Enjoy. 😊
Make sure you have “Slice” and “Auto Load” buttons enabled.
Browse to your loop which you want to slice.
Add or delete transient markers as you like.
Press “Done” and the loop will be sliced and mapped to the pads.
For easier modifying enable “Remix”. This will allow you only to create one step per pad. Of course you can disable it and play more then one pad/slice at once.
