The Maschine sound files are comprised from sampled synthesizer one shots, micro cycle loops, single cycle wave forms and a few field recordings. The samples range from a single oscillator square wave, a combined saw and square, to sampled one shots. The samples were recorded from multiple tone generators, several older (cheaper Casio, Yamaha) keyboards and a couple of field recordings. With the recent addition of Massive to the Maschine family over fifty massive patches are also included. Many of these patches are also mapped to macro knobs so the patches can be played and automated in Maschine or your preferred DAW.
