1. We're currently conducting systematic tests with the release version of macOS 11 (Big Sur) in order to offer full compatibility of our products as soon as possible. You can find our latest compatibility status - here

    Please note that although announced at the same time as macOS Big Sur, Apple Silicon processors are an independent release with separate compatibility concerns for NI products. Compatibility with macOS Big Sur will not yet ensure compatibility with Apple Silicon processors. At the moment, Native Instruments products are not supported on computers with Apple Silicon processors. Read more - here

Can I use the QWERTY keyboard as a midi controller for the Maschine software?

    Maschine doesn't have these kind of options, which seem normal in other DAWs and even some standalone Synthesizer. Maschine is an intentionally closed system that doesn't play well with other stuff.

    I have opened my maschine as a plugin within Logic Pro and used it.
    make sure to change the batch setting to output to mid channels and not midi notes .

    Huh, that seems strange that Maschine doesn't offer that functionality. I really have such a strange relationship with this .. "machine" - I really enjoy working on it, and will even feel like it's helping me be more creative but I keep hitting this brick wall whenever I want to go from "play" mode to serious production mode.

    as maschine sw is made to be used together with maschine controller i'm not surprised that there's no qwerty-support in it. and what's a keyboard mode to do with "serious production mode"? ;-)
