I'm not a beginner by any means, perhaps I just have a mental block, progress was slow. Thank you everyone for you support on the channel. I also think the tappiness is that a word? But I backed out literally a day before shipping.

The examples are excellent and really applies to all skill levels.
I am looking for an overview of everything: arrangement, chopping, effects, et. Very detailed and exercise oriented. I'm really impressed so far. It was made to rather easily sample many sources like perc hits or keyboard or guitar phrases instantly to pads. So I struggled to make full, pro quality sounding tracks on it, but again, used just for drums or glitchy bits and bobs, with 2 or more other bits of gear doing bass etc split out to a mixing desk, it was much better.

I used to be a drummer, but now I'm living in an apartment with neighbours and not much space. You've done an awesome job man. In April 2018, I started finger drumming Beats on Maschine. Please contact me with other resources that you produce! The fact that Andy updates it every time a new firmware update comes out is amazing. I'm a hands-on learner, so your tutorials were perfect for me.
Please be clear when offering help how well you understand the subject, and don't give lazy or bad advice if you can help it. First there was the Akai Mpc 500 , my first encounter with beatmaking and sampling music. Loved my old Octatrack, but the sound quality never really did it for me, so the Live is my preference at this point. I have found a good number of tutorials but most of them are pretty bad. It has allowed me to get going very quickly.
Someone said before this book is what Akai should be giving with every Live and X. It is so clear and sensible in its approach and instructions, especially compared to the user manual. With the included example tutorial data file to load in the mpc, to make it very easy to follow along. You are correct, it really is worth it. No problems following any of this at all. Posting a beat tape as a link to one long track will get it flagged and removed by the automod post as a text submission to avoid that. Adobe Reader, Mac Preview etc.

No machine is perfect of course, so it all comes down to whether one sees the negatives as deal breakers or outweighed by all the positives, and that comes down to personal preference as it often does with musical instruments. So I bought some drummachines. Older volumes can be found. Recurring Threads : Get feedback on your latest track, but make sure to give some too! Please try not to post more than one project a month.

Will read it again, maybe more than 2 times to get really everything, but the workflow-confusion-problem ends with the first finish reading the content of the Bible Tutorials. Never been so excited about the breakthroughs I'm making in my musical endeavors. You can send me a video of your mpc and ask me a question that you have about your mpc. So, I figured that this tutorial book was worth a try, and I'm really impressed as to the thought and care that has gone into it. Excellent hub of my variable live setup.
Beyond that, in my experience the tactile nature of the pads does influence the sound. This book will be so used - a true labour of love, if I may say so. I would happily recommend this book to beginners and experienced users alike as im sure there is something in this book everybody can pick up on. . I'm lucky to have it printed and bound for me as a favour, so I can refer to it on occasions when I'm not on top of a pc. Very well done, top notch!

I also found the sound processing extremely in depth and rewarding - the sample edit was an absolute joy I can remember sampling from a digitizer onto an Amiga a few years back!! Thank you for putting this together.
