    Hi all,

    Further to Charles' recent post about the sequencer, I just wanted to give you a quick update on what we are working on and what we plan to bring to Maschine in the closer future.

    A lot of people requested the unique Jam features for their 4x4 Maschine controllers and we are already close to finish those.

    LOCK will be available on Maschine Studio and Classic (MK1 and MK2) including Extended Lock with the ability to morph between your snapshots.

    VARIATION, Maschine's new randomize and humanize feature will come to all 4x4 controllers.

    On the other hand many Jam users requested the ability to edit existing note events.
    So we brought StepEdit to Jam. StepEdit gives you access the tune, velocity, note length and the position via the step sequencer, very much like on our 4x4 controllers.

    Another thing we will introduce is step modulation, allowing you to modulate any modulatable parameter per step via Jam.

    One request we had for a rather long time is the ability to send midi CC's to external gear.

    In the next update of Maschine you will be able to set up any Macro control as a midi CC.

    The nice thing is, you can just add your hardware environment to Maschine's browser by saving your configured Groups or Sounds. From then on, you can just load your HW synths like any other software instrument or sample right from the hardware browser.

    I hope you will enjoy these improvements,
    Steffen

    PS: Enjoy your last days of 2016 and have a great start to 2017

    This is great news - one question though: what about note length?

    Guten Rutsch!

    Great news for us non-Jam users getting Lock and Variation features. thats huge.
    the only major thing missing now (for me at least) is the wipe I/O routings on group load. Not sure where that one sits on the totem pole, but is a big one for me. Maybe by end of 2017 ?

    Regardless, thanks NI ! Nice little surprise before year end.

    It already is (and has been for as long as I remember). In step mode, just hold the pad corresponding to the step you want to record modulation for and turn the knob corresponding to the parameter you want to modulate.

    No, it looks like the permissions have not been set properly. They just show the image icon and and when clicking to view them it says:

    The images are not showing. On another note: Maschine is heading in the right direction. I wonder what features are on the drawing board for 2017 besides the sequencer?

    Ah See I don't use the step sequencer , but now I'm gonna have to investigate that ,mistook it for being able to edit modulation in the arranger window on the studio , like you can with note length, position, pitch , volume.
