    so i tried this today and i was able to play maschines different pads automatically when i loaded it as an insert. I didn't need to do this and i'm still unsure as to what this function does.

    Note: this relates to macOS

    This is not specific to Maschine but I've been having a lot of fun with it nonetheless.

    Recently I have been using my iPad to use Logic Remote to control Logic, so I've had my iPad connected to my Mac a lot more. I didn't realize that if you go to the Audio MIDI setup in macOS you can enable iPad I/O very easily.

    So I made an aggregate device with my Apollo and iPad and set the 4th input pair in Maschine to the iPad.

    Now I run Spotify on my iPad on a stand at my desk and use it to output audio to sample into Maschine and cut up.

    I'm sure this is obvious to some of you but as a recent macOS convert this kind of blew my mind and I'm loving it.

    On my windows machine I used to do stuff with loopback devices but I also hate running things in other windows outside the DAW.

    A better Live 10 host integration
    Although Maschine isn't necessarily a Live controller it can be set up as one. This will allow you to control some parts of Live from behind the Maschine controller whenever Live is running (and the VST isn't loaded). So, for example, you can control the volume for each track, the transport control will control Live, you can select different active tracks, etc.

    See also this N.I. support article. Basically, all you need to do is to copy the _NativeInstruments folder and the one which corresponds to your Maschine version, these can normally be found in "\Program Files\Common Files\Native Instruments\Host Integration\Ableton Live".

    But there's a catch.... every time you upgrade Live it will get re-installed. In other words: the Live program folder gets removed and the new Live setup gets installed. Effectively resulting in you having to re-install these controller scripts. But no more if you're using Live 10.1.13 and up!

    Live 10.1.13: A new remote script location!

    From Live 10.1.13 and up you can now create a folder called "Remote Scripts" right in your Live user library. The default location for this user library is: This PC => Documents => Ableton => User Library. But you can also create this folder in Live itself:


    If you place the previously mentioned remote scripts in this new folder (see also my screenshot above for an example) then you will never have to bother yourself with this after you upgraded Live. Simply because a Live upgrade will never mess with your user library.

    For me this really is a live safer because Live doesn't exactly upgrade very often and thus I always forget the right location for these script folders. Eventually I'll find them by digging around in Program Files but it's always quite a hassle. Well.... not anymore!

    I know it's been a while since 10.1.13 got released (February 2020) but I never immediately upgrade just to make sure I don't run into weird glitches. Still hope this can be useful for some of you!

    Once you have selected a scene from the keyboard, you can press Shift-Button 2 (Unlabeled) to return to Arranger mode in the software.
