Using Massive with Maschine in MIDI Mode
This incredibly helpful begins by explaining the different between the two main modes of operation that Maschine offers. Typically, most users will spend the bulk of their time working ion the standard Maschine mode. However, now that Maschine includes Massive, there may be a lot more people looking to learn about the other mode, MIDI mode. Running in MIDI mode allows you to access and create templates to be used with various synths, plugins or any other software that uses MIDI. Using Maschine in MIDI mode can be a much more intuitive approach to sound design with a synth and can actually improve your workflow depending on how you use Maschine in the studio and in live performance situations.
After Maschine has turned on, it gives you the option of launching the Maschine software to use it in its default mode or press Shift+Control to switch to MIDI mode. Once in MIDI mode you can choose from several templates for commonly used synths, or you can create your own. Since we are working in Massive with Maschine in MIDI mode, the Massive template is loaded and the general navigation is explained.
Using the template editor, you can easily assign parameters to pads, rearrange the way notes are laid out for more comfortable or convenient access, etc. It is a very quick process and simple to understand. You can even set up groups to be slightly different from each other in the template to gain even more control and provide even more flexibility in your sessions. It is also possible to change how sounds are triggered, so literally any kind of control you need is available to you in this mode.
