Modulation Envelopes in Maschine
In this tutorial, learn how to use the Maschine sampler modulation envelopes.
This tutorial covers how to use the sampler’s modulation envelopes for pitch and filter modulation. Using a very simple sampled synth sound, filter and pitch modulation is explored. We also compare panning effects achieved by the modulation envelope to those made with the LFO. Some effects like extreme panning modulation using the LFO are just more practical than those accomplished with the modulation envelopes. Using the Maschine sampler’s built-in LFO for pitch modulation was covered in last week’s tutorial.
It’s easy to just load sounds onto a pad, and never dive in to the sampler’s many parameters, such as the modulation envelopes. By the same notion, it’s easy to leave the attack parameter at full counterclockwise, but lots of interesting sounds, such as fake reverses and wonderful filter modulation, can be achieved with playing with the attack parameter of the sampler’s built-in modulation envelopes. I recommend finding one setting for the destination encoders and exploring the three modulation envelope encoders – the attack, hold and release parameters – for nice sweet spots.
