    Not sure why reaktor has no love for true maschine integration. Running reaktor in maschine is an amazingly powerful combo, but interacting with maschine is downright awful. I know there is a block, but that block only works properly with the mk2 which was almost a decade ago now? A good solution would be adding control parameters and features to the already existing external hardware module. Pretty please?

    Inside the full version of Reaktor 6 is a building block 'Hardware Control'.
    Is that enough?

    sorry, took me a while to get to researching that macro and checking out. That module is only designed to interact with the light system of the S series keyboards (or A? the nicer ones with all the lights on it)...In the explanation of the module in the manual it states that this module will be updated to support control of more NI hardware, but alas, a promise unfulfilled thus far. Really unfortunate how NI makes these amazing, world leading (IMO) products like maschine and Reaktor et al. but then fails integrate them together. That's why people love their Macs and other similarly maintained ecosystems of inter-functionality and compatibility. I understand that some of this stuff is very niche though. ehh.

    Bump! Pad color support like the lightguide module for KK S-Keyboards would be a basic but welcome start. We have 8 great knobs we can interact with but no buttons outside of the 4x4 grid so being able to display colors there and possibly restrict notes or lock the keyboard mode would go along way to making interactive ensembles (think button inputs for effects plugins).

    Expanding on, or creating an alternative to, the Automation module would be the next most welcome addition. Adjusting the knob resolution here would be huge. Also multi-parameter lists to go along with the multi-parameter names and the select input.

    I know the midi communication portion is on their end but if you guys gave them some internal pressure that'd be great. ;)

    I request a Komplete Kontrol S-series block, and a Maschine+ block. I'm looking for modules to integrate those hardware controllers into my Reaktor blocks patches.
