  • I've been making music in Ableton, using my Casio PX-150 to do drums and synth, but it's getting uncomfortable, as I'm constantly moving between this big piano and computer screen.

    I wanted to buy an Akai MPD in order to do drums on my computer table near the screen without turning around all the time, and also I think that this controller allows to press record and play.

    Later I've watched some videos by Sandurz

    and he uses a Maschine controller, and as I can understand it's the one that allows to make music even without PC.

    Now I can afford one, so I looked up on the internet and find out that MK3 is basically standalone, and that I can make the whole beat their, and I only need to connect it to my computer for the software.

    MK3 Micro costs two times less, doesn't have some buttons and screens, and as I see from Youtube videos requires to switch between computer and controller.

    So considering that I've got used to Ableton Live, what do you think I should buy? Maybe you can advice me some other controllers with PADs. I think that I will probably burn out learning a new program and shortcuts with MK3, but MK3 Mikro doesn't have screen and some buttons.

    bro tbh none of that s*** matters. the controller wont make you make better music so just go with what you can afford tbh. getting caught up in what to buy will only slow you down from progressing. ye made beats on an mpc but he couldve did the same s*** on some cheap controller from today. just keep focusing on the music and whatever you need to get the job done

    Thank you bro, nice inspiration:D I almost bought mikro but then decided that it's probably better to work on my skills some more, and you're totally right, there are people with will to create who can do it without anything fancy, just because they are inspired, and there those who try to hide their laziness behind excuses.

    honestly if you were gonna use the maschine standalone i would recommend just saving up more and getting a Push 2

    i had the mk2 mikro and used it for like 2-3 years, made some nice beats on their but the song arrangement and abilities on it are so trash compared to ableton, ended up switching to ableton and just use a midi keyboard now

    if youre looking to use maschine as a plugin in ableton then it may be worth it, but its not as well integrated as a Push 2 for obvious reasons
