To find sounds quickly, MASCHINE gives you
a powerful tag-based browser. It lets you to manage everything, from individual
samples to whole projects in one place. Let’s say you want to find a drum kit. First select “Groups”, then specify your search by selecting “Kits”. For a warm, textured drum kit – simply select “Vinyl” and you’ll see only kits matching this attribute. Clicking this speaker icon allows you to audition kits. On the hardware, simply hit the BROWSER button and use the encoder to scroll through
the current selection. Let’s load this one by clicking the encoder. You can tag your favourite sounds by pressing
SHIFT + ★ To find them again later, just hit the star
icon to make them show up again. This is really helpful when you explore the
vast MASCHINE library and want to build your own pool of sounds.
