Choosing between Maschine/Ableton (MK3/Push2)
However my upgraded software of 2. I get this is the nature of the tech but left me a little salty. Especially when I cannot buy a new MK3 controller only. Less wires and boxes. Then there is the Price difference between the two.
Both seem great in there own way. It is a tough decision. August 2, , The Push 2 is beautiful but to be real some key things are not very intuitive. Plus, browsing on the Push 2 is dreadful sometimes, depending on the type of sample. Live 10 has Collections now to make browisng easier but you still have to dig for them yourself then label accordingly. The Push 2 gives an impressive amount of control from the controller but can be cumbersome at times. With the MK3 browsing is a breeze and the stock sounds are quite impressive, and I absolutely do not touch or look at my computer at all while creating except for saving the file name.
Everything else can be accomplished right from the controller. The MK3 also makes a decent controller for Live as well, but the Jam is much more suitable for that. I can highly recommend the MK3 over the Push 2. The reason I went with the Mk3 is: I work on a computer, so when making music I prefer to stay away from a computer.
Mk3 is cheaper. Yeah, I was a part of the NI forum, but quickly got out of that place. A lot of negativity. Not sure how it is now. But I really like the Mk3.
If you want you can upgrade the firmware to have a grid sequencer like the push. In some ways I prefer the pads better on the Maschine and nicer new color screens. August 3, , Still too much dependency on the laptop 2 Likes August 3, , Using Mashine inside of Ableton was a inelegant experience for me. If you want to use Ableton, Push is where it is at. If you want to use Mashine software and you own Komplete Ultimate then Mashine could be a good time. Yes it is not as elegant but you can really focus composition in standalone and do sequencing in live.
You could also hold your breath and wait for 3.
We compare these two hardware/software hybrids directly
At that time I did not really know much about Ableton or DAWs in general, but now I see that most producers seem to be using Maschine more as a tool along. Ableton Push 2 VS Native Instruments Maschine MK3! We put the Ableton Push 2 up against the Native Instruments Maschine MK3 to see who. I can be disappointed about software but as a groovebox, maschine is pretty big. I have to accept it is not a daw like ableton or bitwig or Logic.
I mean Maschine’s simplicity is probably its greatest asset, but also its biggest downfall. NI is great at selling the “Maschine package”, with all the flashy marketing videos, vivid colors, etc Its hard to resist , especially if you are new to music production world. However, the problem for me at least is once you scratch the surface of the maschine software, its flaws and shortcomings become overwhelmingly apparent , to a point where it became a major roadblock in my creative process, particularly when trying to finish and polish my tracks. I did that for over two years in Maschine, making some 15 tracks and it really just got to be too much.
Maschine MK3 or Ableton Push 2?
Mon Jan 22, 1: Two different things.
Watch: Maschine mk3 Or push 2 – Other Gear – Elektronauts
At that time I did not really know much about Ableton or DAWs in general, but now I see that most producers seem to be using Maschine more as a tool along. NI Maschine or Ableton Push? It’s a tough choice for many producers. Yes, Push is optimised for Ableton Live and Maschine is multi-DAW. JK Swopes demonstrates how automate and modulate parameters in the MASCHINE plugin directly inside of Ableton Live 9.
