About The Workshop

This workshop is designed to teach you how to build a song from scratch using Native Instrument's Maschine. Over the course of an afternoon, Jos Cornell will give you an essential look at how songs are made while demonstrating one of the easiest workflows created by Native Instruments. Starting with the fundamentals, which include a software and hardware overview and pad lay out, we will move into sequencing & arranging, creating a pattern, editing a drum kit, and effective processing.

Next we will advance into Synthesis & Composition, learning how to use the Massive synthesizer as a sound design tool to create your own synth. We will also discuss different approaches to polishing your tracks using compression, equalization & balancing.

Jos Cornell is a certified Maschine instructor, and has been teaching these courses for half a decade, helping local producers succeed in their production ambitions. This workshop will be beneficial to both the beginner and seasoned Maschine user.
