    had the same problem today with the studio, tried everything, uninstall reinstall drivers, controller editor, update firmware etc etc.

    Then i deleted last nights windows updates and it fixed the problem.

    Does windows update automatically? Sounds like a recipe for disaster, turn auto updates off if that possible. Updating about a month after they roll out is always a good idea, you don't want to be the first to know it breaks something

    I wish I had seen this post before spending hours on uninstalling and installing again all Maschine drivers, USB hub drivers, etc, to finally try a system restore and going through all recent windows updates one by one.

    For Windows 7 the update that breaks the connection between Maschine Studio and PC appears to be KB4486563:

    uninstalled update KB4487044 and now everything works again (windows 10).

    can't seem to find a way to stop windows from automatically updating so I disabled the network adapter.
