Suggestion for the the maschine developers

dunego Member Posts: 17 Member

Guys, you would murder the competition if you come up with a new maschine software that actually has a SOUND. Like for real, the last try was not good, with these mpc and SP ****** emulations, with all due respect. Design a real way to get this thing to have a sound, like real quality sample rate reduction, not that trash that is on every beat making daw, it is not just you. Get a sample rate reduction option to sound like the roland s-770, s-760, s-550, akai s3000, s950, or any digital hi-end hardware sampler before 96 or so (the hi-end "lo-fi"), the 12 bit reduction to sound like an mpc 60 (but for real this time), an 8 bit like the ensoniq mirage, pitching up or pitching down like the old machines or develop a convincing sound of your own. Give this thang a sound.

    Hmmm, so you want it to sound bad? 😁

    FYI there's an Akai S900 just a few feet away from me, and I had a Casio SK-1 back in the day too. I'd rather have 2024 quality than 80s or 90s thanks!

    I guess it would be for the same reason why lofi has become so popular or the reason so many people buy Roland 404's and such...

    I wouldn't mind some better emulations but there are so many plugs out there for that purpose already... Decimort is 50% off right now.

    I'm also not sure emulation is NI's strong suit. Back in the day I see them going for this, when everyone was discussing this sort of thing but Maschine's newer audience doesn't seem to care much about things more tied towards the beatmaking world.

    @anzbert I don’t think the request was related to the M+ but Maschine in general. However NIs answer to that sort of request are actually surprisingly good.

    meh, just use the old hardware and record its outputs to Maschine. Best sound, no emulation gimmicks required

    Modern samplers capture 100% of all nuances and character of the original sound source, warts and all. Use it to capture all the various instruments and sounds out there. Emulation will always be a moving target, getting incrementally closer to the original but never quite reaching it

    Alternatively, start learning DSP and implement your own emulations in Reaktor running in M+

    I am sorry if my previous comment overstepped whats allowed to be openly mentioned in the forum. I wasn't aware that I am not allowed to talk about certain details. I was being a bit naive and uninformed.

    My bad and won't happen again. 🙏
