How to Use Maschine Jam in Ableton Live with a Controller Template

Maschine fast became the go-to beat machine of millions of producers worldwide when it was launched back in 2009. Since, it’s seen some updates to its hardware and software via Maschine 2.0 and the landmark Maschine Studio controller. For many, it was a studio tool, used to produce and create ideas and beats, but more and more artists were taking the popular beat maker on the road. Now NI have catered for live performers with a brand new hardware release: Maschine Jam.

In our second video focusing on this exciting new controller, PB instructor Paul Ressel (Lana Del Rey, Faithless) demonstrates how Maschine Jam can be used to build and arrange a track in Ableton Live using a controller template. Watch the full video above and subscribe to our YouTube channel so you never miss another free tutorial or live event.
