MASCHINE+ FAQ

We will support MASCHINE Jam's basic functions very soon.
This really depends on which instruments and effects, how you use them, polyphony, voices, and so on. MASCHINE+ is designed to handle many instances at a time, and in typical use you shouldn’t max out the CPU. In general, we recommend deleting any unused instruments and effects anyway to ensure you stay in safe CPU limits.

Our priority is to provide a seamless experience when using MASCHINE+, so we’re currently focusing on our own products for now. However, it is something we may consider in the future.
MASCHINE+ takes its workflow from the popular MK3, which means we can develop future features for both models simultaneously and release them either at the same time or within a few days of one another.
