Simple... Ability to Import / Export in MP3 format. Possibly other popular formats too, like Flac. Spoiler: Original post Every cheese freeware out there allows us to import MP3-samples via drag & drop. No need to convert into WAV with another programm. Since you're allways talking about "lost in the flow", MP3 import is very essential. Imagine people rippin' vocals and speeches from YouTube movies, webradioshows, and so on. It really sucks that we have to open another programm first to convert MP3 to WAV and then import to Maschine. That's completely killing the workflow. And now if you're talking about "Vintage Sound" like MPC60 and SP12in Maschine Ver. 1.5, every noobie who allways wants to tell me something about bad soundquality of MP3s, please shut up. Just accept that not everybody is producing Minimal Techno, and not everyone wants clean digital sounds. At least older people like myself who still now what it feels like to sample from cassette-tapes and other stuff, don't care about HiFi-samples. We sample everything and what counts is the final song you produce and THERE'S DEFINITLY NO NEED TO ONLY USE WAV SAMPLES! So please Native Instruments add MP3 sample support.
