A glimpse into an unknown world.


First project using MASCHINE 2. I was hoping to learn more about MASCHINE to be able to one day set up some live sets, but I also need to keep up with my WeeklyBeats songs too. I'm still getting familiar with things and don't have all of my typical presets either, so things might be a little more boring for now as I figure things out.


Tuesday, August 16, 21:35 - 22:25. Starting to (re)learn MASCHINE software from the hardware side of things and get more used to live playing and entry. Those of you who've been reading my notes may recall that I do have a MASCHINE, but recently I upgraded to the V2 version which means that I have to relearn many aspects of the software.

What a great time to make some cheesy, loop-based electronica with this pattern-based hardware!

Chords: C Em Fadd9 Gsus4 to G

Wed Aug 17, 21:15 - 22:40.

Switching the chords to minor:

Cm Gm Fmi Eb Bb (what exactly is this chord progression, like G minor (iv i vii VI-V) I think?

Transition to Major

C G F Em Bb

A lot of noodling around and making mistakes and not really making an awesome sound, but I am learning my way around Maschine and getting the hang of a more dynamic form of songwriting.

Sunday, Aug 18, 18:15 - 19:00. Scramble to finish.


Total time: 3h 25m.
