    I just got my Maschine MK3 but can't seem to get the Audio to work. I looked up a few guides online but nothing worked.
    If I set the audio to my regular output and plug my headphones into my PC I get some sound but really bad and stuttery. And if I try to use the inbuild Soundcard of the Maschine and plug my headphones into the Maschine with a Quarter inch adapter I get no sound at all.
    Am I missing a driver or something else ?
    I'm currently using the WASAPI (Shared Mode), Device: Maschine MK3 WDM Audio and Headphones L & R on Maschine Out 1 L & R

    No, you are missing NI's excellent manual.

    Press SETTINGS on the hardware,
    Select HARDWARE,
    And select + Phones with the sixth knob.

    Use the ASIO option for a start. And have you checked that the headphone output is turned up?

    That would have been my second advice and question.
    And the headphones must be in the MK3 and not in your PC.
    But you're ahead of me.:(

    Unfortunately that doesn't work either :/ And yeah the volume is turned up. I can get Audio out of it if I set it to my default audio device but it's reeeaally bad, lags and is super distorted. But other people say it also works for them and my Maschine is brand new and my PC is like 6 months old so idk.. Maybe I'll buy a new Quarter inch adapter and see if that'll fix it.

    Please post screenshots of your audio settings in Maschine software, also post your audio routings, and also post your buffer settings

    Does this happen when monitoring through the main outputs too?

    I have no audio from Maschine using headphones but can get audio through headphones plugged into Maschine from all other sources (iTunes / web browser etc.) Running macOS Catalina 10.15.4. Only sound that won't play through the headphones is all sound from Maschine...

    Yeah I just switched it and it's still crackling. Could it be that my Headphones are to bad or can't handle the audio Maschine puts out ?
