Using Maschine w/ Logic Pro Pt 2: Plug-in Mode – ‘Secret Knowledge’ w/ Matt Shadetek

Dubspot instructor and Logic Pro course designer Matt Shadetek returns with a new video tutorial series titled Secret Knowledge. In the second installment of Secret Knowledge, Shadetek explains how to use Native Instruments’ Maschine as a plug-in inside of Apple’s Logic Pro.

In our last tutorial we looked at using Maschine in standalone mode in conjunction with Logic. In this tutorial we will look at the more typical scenario, loading it as a plug-in inside of Logic instead.  One advantage of this approach is that we can run multiple outputs out of Maschine and apply Logic’s effects directly to the Maschine outputs.  We can also overcome the synchronization issues that we saw with the standalone approach. The decision to use standalone or plug-in mode is really a question of personal preference as each has its pros and cons. I recommend you try both and discover what works for you. – Matt Shadetek


For further exploration of Logic check out Dubspot’s six-level Logic Pro Producer program, designed by Matt Shadetek.  In this course (whether at our online school or our physical school in New York City), students will learn to create a four-track EP, starting with a set of musical sketches and developing them over the course of six levels, refining their craft as they advance.

Master Logic with our complete program of courses. In addition to achieving a complete overview of the composition process in Logic you’ll also earn the Dubspot Producer’s Certificate in Logic Pro.
