It's never going to happen
It’s possible that they are not ignoring the possibility, but occupied with critical priorities. What seems like a simple change in code, is really not. I wish they were more open, but nobody likes to put their fit in mouths, especially in business.
This is the kind of niche feature (along with microtuning) that nerds online make a lot of noise about.. 95% of musicians should be pretty happy with the large selection of existing musical scales and what they have to offer... Maschine is not conceived as a tool for experimental music making for academics or avant garde music... I would suggest to such people to look elsewhere!
This is a total waste of time for the developers IMO. There are a lot more serious things that need fixing and adding than custom scales....
I'm sad to see this is a sticky....
This is neither a helpful, nor accurate assessment of the feature request.
Custom scales I do not need, but i accept and appreciate some users may desire them.. fwiw what i would not do is assume that just because I do not need custom scales that NI should not bother to provide them.
Custom chords on the other hand represents a monumental oversight of sheer boneheadedness on behalf of NI..
With a 64 pad Push 2 with a sustain input you are able to play chords, inversions over several octaves, with sustain, in real time.. The ONLY POSSIBLE way for Maschine to accomplish this would be to allow a grid of 16 custom chords and allow the switch jack input to support sustain.. until then, playing Maschine like an instrument is a joke.
it is pretty clear from the level of support for these features that your views are the outlier, not the representation of what users desire....just sayin
My assessment is that the vast majority of Maschine users absolutely do not need custom scales for their EDM productions
A few loud voices on internet forums are not representative.
It is not about whether *I* need them or not. I have spent some time using Maschine and looking at feature requests for Maschine and there are a lot more pressing matters... From essential GUI stuff like tooltips and zoom buttons to plugin delay compensation, etc etc.
Despite the marketing hype, neither Push nor Maschine are musical instruments for melodic playing. They are pad controllers mainly designed for triggering percussive sounds and samples. I would suggest that the fancy musical stuff be added to the NI keyboards instead.
We're talking about software that doesn't even do auto-backup yet....
1. Not everyone does EDM on Maschine
2. adding custom scales when there are already scales is trivial
3. You need some better understanding of Push.. like seriously. It is perfectly possible to play melodies and chords on Push.
but tooltips?.. rtfm
There are donationware (which is essentially freeware because it's basically "name your price") that are relatively simple...like Insert Piz Here's Midichords...
It allows you to select a chord from a list, any inversion, or create your own and store them to any key for single press chords.
I'm not going to be pretentious and act like I know how easy it would be for the devs to implement this....but I can't believe it would take any major overhaul of the code. But what do I know
Maybe it's also worth noting that VST's that generate chords via midi out is not a viable option with Maschine due to internal midi routing also being a feature not available..but also requested for years.
I'm also growing very tired of NI and their indifference towards their consumer base. It really does feel like Maschine is going the abandoned route.
Scale quantize function: the ability to make a pattern in the major scale and with the click of a button, change the pattern to the minor scale. Shouldn't be too difficult to create
I'd like to see a strummed chord and humanise chord function. It takes a long time adjusting the start point and velocity for every note.
Hi I stat new suggestion for costume Chords as a last big feature in this version of Maschine, to be honest we are at the end of version 2 and on Maschine 3 we will have a plenty of new features so I suggested for costume Chords to be last big improvement but I agree that there are a lot that we need...I'm waiting for permition for posting and I hope that it will pass and...I would be so happy if we get this feature
