Manually Slice a Loop
Since version 2.4.5, Maschine has been capable of ‘live’ loop slicing, allowing users to manually assign parts of a sample to pads in real time. To do this, select a sample, open the sampling window, select Slice and make sure you’re set to Manual mode. The first of the 16 pads will blink – hit this to assign the first slice and begin playing your loop. As soon as one Slice is added to a pad, the next pad will begin to blink. Hitting these pads in order as the loop plays will assign consecutive slices across the duration of your sample in real time. A very handy little addition.
