Maschine Weekend


This weekend crash-course on Native Instruments' stunning Maschine controller will kickstart your abilities as a live performer. The hands-on interface of Maschine allows you to interact with your music and play it like an instrument. It connects to the Komplete Kontrol libraries we install on all of our workstations. With anecdotes and demonstrations from some of our respected producer friends, this class helps you make the most of an amazing tool in a short space of time. Maschine is a great way of segueing into the live performance of your music. To find out more about the Ableton Production Weekend at Point Blank Los Angeles, call an Admissions Officer now at 323.282.7660 or contact us via this form to guide you through the enrollment process.

When should I enroll?

Book early to avoid disappointment, as our class sizes are small. There are six to sixteen places available for each class (depending on which studio the class takes place in) and they fill up quickly prior to each term.
