Note Length and Reversed Snare Sounds in MASCHINE
In this tutorial, learn how to use reversed snare sounds and manage note length with both one-shot and ADSR sounds.
This tutorial covers how to use reversed snare sounds and manage note length with both one-shot and ADSR sounds. Using reversed sounds with Maschine’s pattern-based sequencer presents some unusual challenges. Like some other aspects of the Maschine sequencer, note length can be deceiving. Just the way that groove effects will cause notes to play some time after they appear on the grid (or even before, at negative settings), a one-shot sound will play all the way through regardless of the length of the note in the sequencer.
However, along with a finer grid and some control of the length of notes, can control even reversed sounds that require precise timing using sounds in ADSR (as opposed to one-shot) mode. In the video, I demonstrate how to achieve different rhythms easily using this method with reversed snare sounds in ADSR mode. I also show the somewhat-clumsier way to achieve this same groove with multiple reverse snare sounds in one-shot mode.
