Maschine MK2 Video Tutorial – Using Transient Master for Mixing w/ Dubspot’s Matt Cellitti

In this video tutorial, Dubspot instructor and Maschine specialist Matt Cellitti shows us how to use a powerful new effect included in Native Instruments’ latest Maschine update (1.8): Transient Master. Here Matt demonstrates how it can be used on synth and effects tracks to help all your parts sit together better in the mix.

The Transient Master effect showed up in Maschine as part of the free 1.8 update recently, and has already proven itself to be a very powerful tool for mixing.  Its most common use is to make drum sounds and loops tighter and punchier, adding snap to your snares and punch to your kicks. However, it is easy to overlook how helpful it can be to cleaning up your overall mix as well. As we continue to add more tracks and effects to a song, the mix can get very full, with essential frequencies being used up and the headroom sucked away. In this tutorial I show you a few ways you can use Transient Master to tighten up your mixes by applying it to synths and effects. Got a delay or reverb that seems to just hang on forever? Try Transient Master on it. Got a big synth pad that is too loose and sloppy? Try Transient Master on it to make it sit nice. The effect can also be subtle and yet extremely useful. – Matt Cellitti
