Intro to Beat Making with the Native Instruments Maschine

Learn Native Instruments Maschine in a professional recording studio in Chelsea, Manhattan. We'll begin by getting a general overview of all of the features of Maschine followed by creating a simple beat. The second class goes more in depth into song structure and arranging. The next week we will discuss mixing and plug ins, depending on student interest we will learn about the different types of audio processing and how to best harness them. The fourth and final week we will finish your song and bounce a completed mix.

The intermediate class will go on to cover creation of sound banks, live performance, and using maschine as a soft sampler.

Advanced courses are independent study and aim to integrate Maschine into your home studio set up as well as create complete productions that are professional sounding and consistent.

Owning Maschine is not necessary - but it helps!

Michael Flannery

Mike Flannery is a music composer, producer, engineer, and children’s recording artist in New York City.  Whether composing custom music for a national TV campaign or overseeing pre-production with an aspiring singer-songwriter, he brings his unique blend of passion, dedication and skill to the process of music creation.

Mike was classically trained at an early age and later forged his rock aesthetic in the furnace of the NJ underground scene in the 90′s. After making his major label debut as a producer on the pop charts in the early 2000′s and touring alongside global acts such as Outkast, My Morning Jacket, LL Cool J and Ludacris, Mike launched a successful studio in Maine, where he would go on to perfect his engineering and mixing skills for the next seven years.

Recognizing a need in the advertising space for original composition, Mike then extended his musical jurisdiction into the brand world, generating custom music for a number of high-profile national campaigns.  Creating music of any genre to the specifications of the client is Mike’s expertise, and his musical range is wide-reaching.  At the top of 2012, Mike returned to his New York roots, opening a new studio just east of the High Line in Chelsea that is now available for booking.   He continues to compose for brands, and is also available for speaking engagements.
