    are you using usb hub?happens to me....go to
    Audio MIDI Setup and check how many maschine you have.....if you have 2 maschine delete one of them...ableton exit and reenter......sorry for my english

    This issue has been ongoing since Maschine 1.5 (I think according to other posts...search for the threads...I've even posted as well)...I have a similar setup as yours....Mac Pro, Snow Leopard 10.6.8, Ableton Live 8.2.7, Maschine 1.7.2 and every update fixes a few things but this....many Mac users have complained about this and the only workaround is sadly to just use a MIDI template with Maschine Controller Editor and use Maschine with Ableton's MIDI Remote and assign pads and knobs to your layout like you would any other standard MIDI controller.
    And it has nothing to do with Audio MIDI setup because I only have one Maschine listed....Hopefully NI gets on the ball with fixing this.

    BTW, you didn't do anything wrong....it's a bug. :)

    Yeah this has been an ongoing bug reported by many NI users here that still hasn't been fixed. The workaround is just to create your own template in the Controller editor (or use the default template in the controller editor) and assign all your clips, parameters, etc. in Live to your pads and knobs via Live's MIDI Remote. Make sure you remove the Maschine Controller and the ports in Live's MIDI preferences at the top....just assign the Maschine MIDI IN and OUT ports at the bottom along with REMOTE so you can still use Maschine as a MIDI controller and thyen you can assign your clips and parameters to your pads and knobs to your likeness. It's not the same as the video tutorial as we both tried to do as the pads will not blink with feedback but it's the only reliable solution until this bug gets acknowledged or fixed by NI. For the record, mine is hooked on my Mac Pro's USB port and not a hub so the hub theory is out. Hope my info was helpful man. ;)
    ---
    Forgot to mention, reinstalling Ableton will not fix this....that's not the issue.

    Hi

    Could you help me please?

    I updated my Maschine
    Now , when I choose a voice from a Bank / Type / Subtype , and check the voice by pressing the pad , I can’t change it with the Next button , because it doesn't exist anymore inside of that subtype . . . (in Display)
    It dropped out of the bank I was working on…
    What can I do ?


    many tanks

    I can not speak English well...ask oldgit,he understood what I mean and it works
    when it attacks maschine a second time
    in the "Mac audio MIDI setup" Mac instead of a finds two maschine
    go to audio MIDI setup and delete one maschine
    ableton live exit e reenter

    I understood Tony but ihavequestions and I do not have two Maschines listed in our Mac Audio MIDI Setup window....only one Maschine is listed in my Mac Audio MIDI Setup window and I assume the same for ihavequestions...I don't use a USB hub and ihavequestions said he tried it without the hub with the same problems...oldgit, are you on a Mac Pro? In any case I already filed a report to NI like so many other Mac Pro users did to address this issue and still await to see if they will resolve it.

    i have a solution for ya - something i figured out a couple of months ago. it is something i have to do on my mac book pro to get maschine to work in midi mode:

    drum roll... :D

    0. turn maschine on to midi mode, shift > control
    1. go to your mac audio midi setup
    2. go to window > show midi window (if you are still on leopard or earlier, midi will be a tab)
    3. go to the configuration drop down and make a new one, i called mine maschine, but the name doesn't matter.
    4. switch from one config to a diff config and all your midi devices get refreshed, and midi mode now works perfectly!
    5. ?
    6. Profit!

    let me know if that works for you dudes who are having trouble getting maschine into midi mode.

    Sorry buddy....that solution doesn't work either....pads stop blinking after 10-20 minutes and it goes back to the same problem everyone has posted about before....no profit for you :D

    But worth the try. I think NI seriously has to look into it as I suspect it's a MIDI bug and I know they're reworking the MIDI Out for a future update so hopefully that reworking fixes issues with this.

    ahh sorry to hear that didn't work for you guys! we have a seattle meet up group and we were able to get our maschines working in ableton using that trick :/

    the only differences with my set up is that i'm now running lion, but i was able to get it to work with leopard.

    and, for the template i'm using mackie control with ableschine and a user remote script inside ableton.

    Hey dudes,

    Do you know if they ever fixed that bug w/ Ableton and Maschine w/ the pads not blinking when clips are launched?

    Thanks,

    Ollie
