    The request is just to allow the browser to see the local files from the hardware, just like you only need to click "files" to see them in the plugin.

    The MPC touch also has this ability with no scanning or library required


    There is life outside of the maschine libraries. I have many samples and it would be very good to browse them from the controller, especially with the new one coming out soon.

    You can add folders to your User Library, turn on "User Browsing" and scroll thru anything that is not from Native.
    You can add folder by using the Library tab on the preferences or use the browser, right click folder and select "Add to library"

    Why did you mark this as denied? It's still a feature request to browse from the hardware without having to add to the library.

    You didn't specify it so I naturally assumed you were unaware that folders can be added and browsed if added to the library.
    Maschine has to scan folders in order to display and organize what are samples, projects, groups, sounds, instruments, tags, etc...
    What you are requesting would mean your whole hard drive would have to be scanned at every startup, that would take a really long time... It doesn't make much sense, but hey.. it's your request.

    Denied tag removed.

    Hum... I guess if it displays everything contained in folders bunched together it wouldn't need a scan and could be useful.
    I edited the OP a bit to make your suggestion more clear. :thumbsup:

    This would require some new navigational method to change folders though.
