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

    anyone ever try to use Glovepie, etc to control Maschine?
    I can't find a way to send midi control messages to the Maschine software. Is there a way to do that?

    What are you trying to control? You can make macros and control them with external CC.

    e.g. automatically set the pattern duration to a specific length without using the mouse, only external midi messages.

    Don't think it's possible. The Maschine controller doesn't communicate with the software by MIDI, and there's no consistent area of the screen that you might click on with the mouse!

    bummer

    this slows-down the Maschine workflow

    What kind of protocol does it use then?

    Yeah pushing the pattern button on Maschine really slows down the whole process :p

    what about changing the setting of a newly recorded sample (polyphony to 2, One Shot) ?

    You got me there. The Mikro can do it from the hardware but it's way easier/ faster on its big brother.
