Yo, I've mapped out my maschine to dj with ableton but I need more knobs for what I want to do so I was just going to buy an Akai LPD8 but as I've been playing at times my Maschine has been freezing so it's seeming unreliable as a controller :/
Was thinking maybe I just buy an Akai APC40? Hmmm
Maschine freezing / freezes / locks up as a controller
This is a known issue. Please submit a ticket so they have as many of these issues on file as possible and know to prioritize it. APC's work fine and it's what I'm having to use until they find a fix for Maschine, but the Maschine hardware is much higher quality IMHO, the software/firmware is just buggy right now when using it as a controller.
