I just purchased a Maschine last week, and am using it solely as a MIDI controller within Ableton (no Standalone).
The issue I'm having, is that Maschine will work for approx 10 mins - by this, I mean, the pads, knobs, everything will respond to my touch and correspond in Ableton. After this period, Maschine just stops. It's still switched on, lights still on, but the pads, knobs, etc won't respond at all.
I've already uninstalled the Maschine library, template files, everything and reinstalled it.
I'm using a Macbook Pro - OS X 10.5.8
Maschine is version 1.7.1 (but still shows up in the Service Update as requiring me to download this version - another story!)
And of course, I have the Maschine selected in Ableton's Control Surfaces, plus as an input and output.
Anyone have any ideas? I'm at my wit's end!
