    I'd feel like an absolute bellend playing a live set using samples from a loopmasters sample cd but coming across to the crowd like they were samples I had hunted for and chopped up. People are so lazy these days. They want everything readymade.

    I checked out my settings in File/Preferences/Hardware..I have the sensitivety set all the way up and the velocity setting is soft 3…you'll probably just have to experiment with the settings until you find the ones that work best for you.

    From what im reading in NI forums, you might need a audio interface to be able to do it…
    its not allowing me to post a link here,but if you Google "Run Maschine and youtube tutorials at the same time?" it should bring up the link for the forum thread…check it out and see what you think.

    when you choose the ASIO driver,what options does it give you in the next box (device)? when you choose the shared mode,what options does it give you to choose from in the (device) box?

    your pc uses the Integrated•Audio Codec: Realtek ALC888S,you may have to tinker with the windows sound settings or the realtek sound settings.

    I use a Allen&Heath mixer,which plugs in to my pc via usb and it allows me to listen to software and internet audio. a usb audio interface might fix your problem.

    so i got a maschine mk1, and my pc is an hp touchsmart 6001150a , its a built in pc so i'm not sure if i can add a soundcard or not. when i'm using the software, the other audio on my pc doesn't work, internet, itunes, noting. When i checked on the audio and midi settings, it says i use an asio driver (asio4all) or something and i have to change to wasapi (shared mode) which allows me to play music on itunes again (while maschine is running), but maschine audio doesn't work. how do i fix this?

    Yes..I pre-made a beat on group A and I pre-made the melody/bassline on group C. at the beginning of the routine I press play/restart,which starts the beat and melody on A and C and play the vocal samples on group B.

    you can check out my channel for other live Maschine routines ive done using this same method.

    are you just playing the vocal samples through out? with the drum n baselines already recorded? and are u switching between scenes/patterns as u go? cuz i cant see this happening :s ure doin the vocals only right?

    everything in this routine was done inside of Maschine. I first programmed a beat on group A to run the entire length of the song. then programmed a melody on group C that also runs the entire length of the track.then just played the loops on group B over top of them. if you watch closely at the beginning,I press play with my left hand to start the beat while triggering loops with my right hand.my next vid will show how you can live loop and use the sequencer to make beats and melodies live.

    if you have an audio interface or mixer,that plugs in USB. you can route the audio output from your Maschine (in the audio/midi settings) to run thru your interface or mixer (soundcard). from there,I run the sound out of my mixer (via RCA splitter to 1/8" jack) and plug that into one of my other laptops (via the 1/8" mic input) and then just record the incoming audio,into my DAW (Presonus Studio One). there are other ways of routing the audio to run from Maschine,into your daw for recording.

    No there isnt a time limit the only issue would be if you were recording a full set the amount of time youd have to keep your finger pressed to export all the sound from that one pad as audio.

    Awesome Performance, Just one question: are you playing the main track (drums, melody, etc.) all in maschine? or putting that part together in another DAW, then just playing the live parts over it on the maschine? or maybe running another instance of maschine in the daw? this is one part that I have been trying to figure out which works best for this sort of performance.

    Thnx man..sometimes I play the beat live for 2 to 4 bars,while recording and then let it loop while I add other stuff over top. in the next vid I'm gonna do live looping using the rec,solo,and mute functions and also program a live beat that will play in the background using the step sequencer.

    it depends alot on the venue/club..dance tracks are alot easier to play and loop live because most dance tracks use a standard 4 on the floor kick as a foundation.then just build around that as u go.
