How does Maschine Studio compare to the OT in terms of sequencing?
It’s suppose to parameter lock like the OT. But what exactly can you p-lock? And how does it work?
And how does nudging work? Let’s say I tap in a drumbeat, can I then switch to step sequencer, select the pad with the kick drum, hold the second 8th note, press NUDGE, and turn the jog wheel? Release the pad/step. And in what kind of resolution does it nudge? 1/16th notes or can you nudge in smaller increments like on the Octatrack?
Also, and I’ve looked into the manual which is written by stoners with a very specific audience in mind, how does looping work? Does it have the ability to insert loop points independent from the start/end point of a sample? What about crossfade looping and alternate looping? I also have the impression that you can only enable looping if the sample is set to ADSR playback. So having it set to one shot disables the looping. I’m not sure, because again, the manual is written in a way that you don’t really know what is actually possible and not possible with this machine. It is both written in a dumb and very smart way.
I’ve used Machine mk1 in 2010 or something but it was very limited back then, and the hardware felt like a complete and utter toy.
I can prob try to ask these questions on the machine forum, but most of the machine users have no idea what parameter lock means as you guys do.
