Have you had any better luck with your Maschine? I saw your post, the one about giving it another go but not ending well. It is counter-intuitive. I had Launchpad Pro and Ableton Push for a few minutes and was jamming. Maschine has never worked well. A fresh Windows install was a nightmare. A troubleshooting and upgrade simulator, no music. Just ranting a bit. You are not alone with Maschine issues.
