NIHalcyonSkyOK, so here’s another NI expansion for Maschine, specifically for Maschine 2.0, and it’s aimed at ambient, left-feild, downtempo-electro goodness

Think ambient electronica with some lofi grit sprinkled on top

If you like airy, gritty, ambient vibes, then you definitely will want to checkout this new expansion.

Comes with a bunch of kits, full of drums, chords, riffs, and percussion. They also included presets for the new drum synths, presets for Prism, Massive, as well as presets for the new plate reverb in Maschine 2.0

Don’t let the size fool you, there’s a ton of content in here….and it’s all covered with a hazy layer of chill.

    Yeah I had to go look at the Maschine Studion on NI.com because I though something looked different about yours. Nice. Where you get you accessories for that?

    Yo bro…the beat you did alone at the end sells this expansion itself !!! I am gonna say this.,.I can hear Beyonce on that beat…LOL..no lie. This expansion is definitely going in the arsenal…and before watching I said to myself I aint really into Ambient sounds all that much…but the way you made the track kinda let me see its definitely dope and I think i can really experiment. Dope review as always SJ.

    They should break down every expansion like this. I love the way they have it for all genres of music. This is a must have.

    First just want to say thank you for all the reviews and tutorials you put out, I just bought my Maschine MK2 last month, my main instrument is the guitar so I’m pretty new to all of this. But after seeing some of the possibilities for live and studio applications I decided to break out into new territory. I’ve bought a few of the expansion packs and this one is NICE. Once again, I appreciate your work.

    1:33 Please tell me how I can make the Rim Artcore sound at 1:33 without buying this. Ive tried finding Rimshots and samples adding reverb and manipulating them but cant seem to make it sound as good as the one in this expansion.Any help would be appreciated. Great Video BTW…As always… Any help would be appreciated.

    Can you tell me how you got your maschine’s macros to work while playing on the midi keyboard? Mine only respond when playing maschine’s pads. Great vid btw.

    When you download NI Maschine packs are the .wav files unpacked? I have
    Battery but do not own MASCHINE and I would LOVE this pack.

    really nice. I love that “Left” stuff.

    Dang, nice comp at the end. I have this pack and I’ve struggled to get it
    to sound good, but I really like what you did with the quick track you
    built. Great job and thanks again!
