make use of modulation
Maschine’s sampler modules have a lot of handy modulation options. The sample amp envelope is in One Shot mode by default, but can be changed to make use of either an AHD or ADSR envelope generator for more precise control over shape and level of the sample playback. There’s also an additional AHD envelope generator and multi-shape LFO, which can be routed simultaneously to pitch, filter cutoff, drive and pan. Final modulation options allow for velocity and mod wheel signals to be routed to the same destinations. A little movement can make a basic sample kit more pro-sounding.
