Using the Maschine MK3 in Logic Pro


Now I’ll be the first to say this: the Maschine is a beast! But, whilst in its natural habitat. If you want to get the most out of your Maschine, learn the Maschine stand-alone software. It’s incredible.

However, as a long-time Logic Pro X user, I know there are times when you will want to work exclusively inside Logic. So it would be nice if your Maschine worked well inside of Logic Pro X too right? The way the Komplete Kontrol MK2 does.

So in this post, I will teach you how to use your Maschine inside Logic Pro X. (Well at least, how I use my Maschine inside of Logic Pro X). We will take a look at two integrations – basic and advanced.

MIDI first

In the first video, we look at a basic implementation. One that allows us to program sounds from Maschine straight to Logic’s arrange window. This is advantageous if you like to use Maschine’s drum sounds and don’t own Battery. If you own Battery, I’d suggest using Battery instead, it’ll make your life so much easier. Or Logic’s new Drum Machine Designer, which is also very good now.

If you need to control Logic’s transport functions too, then check out this video here.
