    Check the "trutorials" series by NI on YouTube

    Check for "Lock states" and Lock modes on YouTube

    If you own Komplete Ultimate use "The Finger" to destroy your beats (send the audio to it). Traktor DJ FX in Guitar Rig can do the same.

    Do yourself a favour and browse the provided FX groups in Maschine. Many of them have automation patterns running on their parameters and are set up in very interesting ways.

    Again, Komplete owners can just slap on Molekular on everything and the movement never stops

    Audio Module sound sources can be played melodically! Just activate keyboard mode.

    You can stack perform FX if you send the overall signal from one group to another multiple times. Together with a Maschine Jam you can play 8 of them simultaneously (4 Fingers on each hand).

    If you have a pattern, just duplicate it and delete stuff for quick variations

    Use the choke button combination creatively while either fingerdrumming or during playback to selectively stop stuff

    But wait, there's more

    (Cue the others)

    Maschine's modulation/automation system, on the most basic level, is like the Electribe series' motion recording feature. The automation is recorded for that individual pattern, although with Maschine you can create a separate FX group and route things through it in order to create modulation data that extends beyond one or more patterns.
