Join JK Swopes for an in-depth discussion in this video Editing pattern events from the Maschine controller, part of Learning Maschine 2.
- If you're using a Maschine controller, you have full access to edit your note data directly from the hardware. Let me show you how to use the hardware controller to edit your events within your patterns. In order to get to "Event" mode, you wanna press "Select", and we'll pin the page using button number one. Next, we'll hit button number two to get to the events. You notice over here, you can select your events, the start and end point of all the events you want to select. You can use knob number four to select individual events. And over here you can select the position, length, pitch, and velocity.
You also have the option to select all events, or none. And you can move up and down between the separate pads. You can also use the cursor to move between the events. If I hit a pad, it will select all events on that pad.
Now we can move the position. Again, your position is based on your grid. Our step grid is set to 16. If we put it on 32 ... You can notice it moves in smaller increments. And we can choose the individual events. A lot of times when I'm using event mode, I'll put it all the way up to 128, or even turn it off.
(drum beat) You can also adjust the length, and the pitch. If you wanna see the pitch being adjusted, press "shift" in pad mode to get into keyboard view. You can also adjust the velocity.
If you don't see the velocity, or the modulation area on your software, press "navigate", and press the "mod" button. You can also access this directly in the software by using this button, here. As we adjust the velocity, we notice the lines moving up and down. All the way up means full velocity. (drum beat) You can also nudge your events.
If you press the "grid mode", you'll see that "nudge" is set to be half of whatever our grid is set to. So, if we have it set to 16, it'll move between half notes of the 16ths. So let's say I wanna nudge, maybe this kick. I can press "shift", I have two options for nudging forward or backwards. I can also change the octave and semitone by holding shift, pressing "octave up" and "octave down", or "semitone up" and "semitone down".
Again, if you wanna see where this is moving along the keyboard, press "shift" in pad mode. So as you can see, you can add your events very quickly directly from the Maschine controller. Even though you don't have the full visual feedback of the Maschine studio, you can still quickly edit and customize your patterns.
