    Older change logs:

    2.13 - 2021-03-09

    • Ableton Live 11 integration from MASCHINE controllers is not officially supported yet. Official integration scripts will be released in a future update
    • ADDED Big Sur compatibility on Intel-based Macs. Please note the following:
    Using MASCHINE MK2, Studio or Mikro MK2 may cause CPU spikes which can lead to freezes. [Please follow this article for updates]

    MASCHINE is not yet supported on Apple Silicon based Macs. Even though it can be installed from Native Access on these computers, there is a small possibility of data loss within MASCHINE between sessions, meaning that Project settings, loaded Instruments & Parameters may intermittently be lost when re-opening a saved project in Logic. We are working with Apple to resolve the issue. [Please see this article for updates]

    2.11.0 - 2020-08-20

    Introducing background scanning for content Products

    Scanning of content products (Kontakt and Reaktor libraries, Expansions, Presets and Samples) now occurs in the background, allowing both applications to be used immediately when launched.
    A running scan is indicated by a spinning / loading icon on the library tabs as well as in the preference page. Manual re-scanning is also not possible while an automatic scan is in progress.

    • VST and AU scanning still requires a restart and present a scan dialogue
    • Some interactions such as editing tags or using the search bar may not be possible while a scan is running
    • CHANGED In the Song View, the default for the loop state was changed from "on" to "off"
    • IMPROVED Minor aesthetic changes to the info bar on the hardware color displays
    • FIXED Sampling mode not working as expected
    • FIXED Using MASCHINE as a plug-in with missing content creates a grey rectangle when loading a project in a host application
    • FIXED Files with "#" in the name can't be dragged and dropped
    • FIXED Incorrect behaviour of ERASE + PAD if the Pattern start is not 1:1:1
    • FIXED Copy / Paste not working as expected if the Pattern start is not 1:1:1
    • FIXED Piano Roll and note Length combinations on JAM causing the controller to become unresponsive
    • FIXED Mod Pack VST freezes Application
    • FIXED An issue where notes were placed at the 1:1:1 marker when having "Quantize" enabled and using Auto-Growing Patterns
    • FIXED An issue where the internal compressor of MASCHINE showed an unusual meter behaviour
    • FIXED An issue where the waveform color in the Sampling tab was not updated correctly when changing the color of a Sound

    2.10.1 - 2020-03-26

    • FIXED An issue where the first note was not quantized correctly when recording a pattern
    • FIXED An issue where Erase from hardware controllers did not work as expected when using Start-Offset
    • FIXED An issue where the LEDs on the Touchstrip would show the focussed scene instead of the scene played back
    • FIXED An issue where KOMPLETE KONTROL A-Series controllers would freeze when no group is focussed

    2.10.0 - 2020-03-11
    • ADDED Auto-Growing Patterns
      Upon creating a new Pattern, the length no longer needs to be defined in advance (still can be, but is optional). You can record into a Pattern as long as you like and after you are done recording, any silence at the end will automatically be trimmed to the nearest Bar (quantization can be adjusted via grid settings). After recording you can define the Start of your Pattern and Length, to pick the take or part of your recording that you liked best. This feature can be disabled in the preferences.
    • ADDED Pattern Start Position
      You can now define a Start-Offset for each Pattern. The above mentioned play range (set via Start and Length) can be freely moved throughout the Pattern via the Position marker from HW-Controllers or by dragging the loop range left and right in the Software.
    • ADDED Pattern Play Position indicated on the LED Touchstrip for MASCHINE MK3 and MASCHINE MIKRO MK3 (when Touchstrip is not used otherwise)
    • FIXED a problem where Multi-Outputs of MASCHINE 2 were not working correctly in Pro Tools
    • FIXED a crash when loading Meteoric Rise: Tomahawk Kit and creating a Pattern

    2.8.0 — 2019-02-21

    • ADDED Sounds.com Integration
      Browse on Sounds.com, create your own collections of loops and one-shots, and sync the collections with MASCHINE. To make use of this feature, you must enable the "Download to All NI Apps" feature on the Sounds.com website. This can be found in your account settings, which can be accessed at this URL: https://sounds.com/account/overview
    • CHANGED There is now a single button for toggling the Browser between the Factory and User Libraries
    • CHANGED Samples are now cataloged in separate Loops and One-shots tabs in the Browser
      For this version, all User Samples will be located in the One-shots tab of the Browser, regardless of whether they're tagged as Loops or One Shots.
    • IMPROVED Instruments, Loops, and One-Shots in the Factory Library will have their tags updated to the new NKS 1.5 format
    • ADDED Previews of loops selected in the Browser will be played in sync with the current project
      When a loop is selected with Prehear turned on, it will begin playing immediately in-sync with the project if transport is running. If a loop preview starts part-way through the loop, the loop will play once more for its full length to ensure you get to hear the entire loop once in context with your project.
    • IMPROVED Filters and product selections will be remembered when switching between content types and Factory/User Libraries in the Browser
    • ADDED Browser content synchronization between multiple running instances
      When running multiple instances of MASCHINE, either as Standalone and/or as a plug-in, updates to the Library will be synced across the instances. For example, if you delete a sample from your User Library in one instance, the sample will no longer be present in the other instances. Similarly, if you save a preset in one instance, that preset will then be available in the other instances, too.
    • ADDED Setting of Sample Start and End points from MASCHINE MIKRO MK3
      Fine adjustments can be made by holding SHIFT while rotating the encoder.
    • ADDED When Browsing with A-Series keyboards, you can now jump quickly to the results list by holding SHIFT and pushing right on the 4D Encoder

      Sounds are muted in TRACK mode while Groups are muted in IDEAS.
    • ADDED Adjust Pattern Length with A-Series keyboards
      Press the 4D Encoder on a Pattern in IDEAS. Twist for 1 bar increments, or hold SHIFT and twist for finer increments. Press again to set.
    • ADDED Clear patterns from A-Series keyboards by holding SHIFT and pressing STOP
    • IMPROVED Authorization system upgraded to RAS3
      Existing RAS2 serial numbers will authenticate in the new RAS3 system automatically.

    • ADDED Support for KOMPLETE KONTROL A-Series hardware
    • ADDED MASCHINE MIKRO MK3: ability to set focused parameter from the software
    • ADDED Edit Tab to Audio plug-in
      Like the Sampler plug-in, you can now perform destructive audio edits to loops loaded into the Audio plug-in via the new Edit tab.
    • ADDED Usable Play Range for Audio plug-in
      In the Edit tab of the Audio plug-in, there are now Playable Range Start and End markers which can be used to isolate only a portion of the loaded audio file that you wish to loop. The timeline along the top of the waveform now shows musical units rather than samples.
    • ADDED Items can now be dragged from the Browser to external locations
    Fixed Issues:
    • FIXED Audio plug-in waveforms on the hardware Pattern screens didn't update when changing the Pattern Length
    • FIXED Edit tools could appear in the Sampler plug-in even with no sample loaded
    • FIXED When the Section page was pinned on MASCHINE MK3 or STUDIO, pressing and releasing DUPLICATE would incorrectly recall the Scene page

    Maschine Factory Library 1.3.2 - 2018-07-25
    • ADDED Previews for Kits and Sounds

    Maschine 2.7.7 - 2018-07-25
    • ADDED Previews for Group Kits and Sounds
      All Kits and Sounds in the MASCHINE Factory Library now have previews. In order to make them work, you will need to update your Factory Library to version 1.3.2 or newer via NATIVE ACCESS.
    • ADDED "Formant" engine to Audio plug-in
      When transposing the pitch of a loop in the Audio plug-in, the new "Formant" mode will attempt to preserve the formants which can help keep vocals sounding natural. It can help prevent the cartoonish sounds that can occur when transposing up or down.
    • IMPROVED Audio plug-in Loop recording workflow
      The Audio plug-in now stops any previous Take it was playing when recording to a new Take or new Pattern. This prevents hearing the previous Take playing back while trying to record the new Take.
    • IMPROVED Tempo embedded in Audio recordings
      MASCHINE now writes both the Tempo and Loop tags to recordings made with Loop mode. Tempo is written into recordings made in Sync mode. These recordings will therefore always be in sync with the project when loading them into an Audio plug-in.
    • IMPROVED Bouncing and Exporting of Audio
      When you drag a bounced audio file from the Pattern Editor dragger to a Sound Slot or Group, MASCHINE will now load this into an Audio plug-in instead of a Sampler. Additionally, when Bouncing or Exporting loop content from MASCHINE, the Loop tag and Project Tempo will now be written into the files. MASCHINE will read this tempo when later loading this file into the Audio plug-in.
    • CHANGED Pattern Editor workflows
      The number of tools available in the software for editing the Patterns has been reduced due to redundant functionality. Instead of an arrow, a pencil, and an eraser, there is now just a pencil tool which can be toggled on and off. When the pencil is off, the mouse will behave as it did when using the arrow tool (and the mouse will look like a normal arrow in this mode). When the pencil is on, this enables the same pencil/paint functionality as before (and the mouse will look like a pencil when in this mode).
    • IMPROVED Pattern Editor Keycommands
      -W = toggle between "Group View" and "Keyboard View"
      -S = toggle "Sampling View" on/off
      -E = toggle "Pencil/Paint" on/off
    • IMPROVED Count-in Recording
      Can now engage count-in recording from the software while the playhead is moving via Command + Shift + Space (Mac) or Ctrl + Shift + Space (Windows).
    • IMPROVED The "Always Use Latest Version of NI Plug-ins" preference now also applies to projects
      If a project was saved using older versions of plug-ins, such as older versions of REAKTOR or KONTAKT, the newest installed versions will be used when loading the project while this preference enabled. If the preference is off, MASCHINE will attempt to load using the versions originally used when creating the project. Additionally, if only newer versions of the required plug-ins are installed on the system, the newer versions will be used even if this preference is turned off.
    • CHANGED MIDI Change and Scene/Section Retrigger locations
      MIDI Change (where you assign MIDI messages for changing Scenes, Sections, and Locks) is now accessed through the Edit menu. Scene & Section Retrigger options are now found at the bottom of the the Perform Grid drop-down menu. The "gear" icon in the Global Header where these options used to be accessed has now been removed.
    • FIXED Cubase, and possibly some other hosts, could crash when unloading MASCHINE from a track or when quitting
    • FIXED Crash/hang when changing Audio Interface to ASIO and back to WASAPI
    • FIXED QuickBrowse is not working when pressing the magnifying glass button on the hardware

    • FIXED Enabling/Disabling MIDI Ports via MK3 Settings page didn't take effect until opening and closing the Preferences in the software
    • FIXED One of two MASCHINE instances crashing when turning on a connected MASCHINE MK3
    • FIXED Resizing a selection of multiple notes would depend on speed of mouse movement
    • FIXED Displaying the Sampling area would create an undo step
    • FIXED Mouse could sometimes freeze when deleting automation lines via double-click
    • FIXED Automation handles would sometimes freeze when dragging with the select tool
    • FIXED Selected type tags would overlap with the "Types" label when collapsed
    • FIXED When copying note events via Alt + mouse drag, the currently selected note event could sometimes appear behind overlapping notes
    • FIXED Contrast setting in software preferences for Maschine MK2/Mikro MK2 controller was broken
    • FIXED Exported audio loops would sometimes be slightly too long
    • FIXED Audio plug-in would sometimes stop playing when switching between Loop and Gate mode during playback, especially if the Pattern contains overlapping notes
    • FIXED On MASCHINE MK2, the "Browse" screen would look incorrect when pressing "Shift"

    2.7.6 - 2018-04-24
    The "+PATTERN" and "+ROUTING" toggle buttons are not available when loading Groups from the MASCHINE MK1 and MK2 controllers

    2.7.5 - 2018-04-20
    FIXED Re-pitch speed problem

    Fixed a bug where the Re-pitch engine plays at the wrong speed when there is a sample rate mis-match between the Audio Interface and the audio file loaded in the Audio plug-in

    2.7.4 - 2018-04-18
    ADDED “Target” parameter to the Loop recording mode of the Sampling Page

    This parameter determines what should be done with a new recording when the recording is complete. “Take” simply adds the new recording to the Take list of the current plug-in, “Sound” puts the new recording into an Audio plug-in in the next unoccupied Sound Slot (useful for layering the recording with whatever else is in the current Pattern, like a guitar looper pedal), and “Pattern” puts the new recording into an Audio plug-in in the next unoccupied Sound Slot AND additionally creates a new Pattern where only this loop is being played (useful for capturing different versions of a part and quickly reviewing them by switching Patterns).

    ADDED "Looper" workflow to MASCHINE JAM
    This feature automates the use of the new Target parameter for fast sampling and layering. Holding the IN 1 button enables this new Loop Recording mode (it’s also helpful to pin this mode on by holding IN 1 and pressing the SONG button). While this new Loop Recording mode is active, pressing an existing Pattern will trigger a recording of a new loop which is then added as a new Sound in the existing Pattern; doing this repeatedly allows you to quickly layer recordings on top of each other. Alternatively, pressing an empty Pattern button will trigger a recording and will then place that recording in a new Sound Slot AND a new Pattern will be created where only the new loop is playing back. When pressing the IN 1 button, External Input 1 is selected as the source for the recording. Pressing GRP while in the Loop Recording mode will select the focused Group as the source. Pressing MST will select MASCHINE’s Master output as the source (for resampling what is currently playing).

    ADDED Footswitch control of Sampling
    When in the Sampling page or when the Loop Recording mode is enabled on MASCHINE JAM, a connected footswitch can be used to control recording. Pressing the footswitch will arm a recording according to the current settings. Pressing the footswitch again before recording has actually started will cancel the recording. If recording is in progress, pressing the footswitch once will stop the recording—double-pressing will abort the recording (any recorded audio to that point will be discarded). If the recording is complete, holding the footswitch down for a few moments will trigger Undo so you can try another take.

    IMPROVED Automatic tempo detection of the Audio plug-in
    The algorithm now chooses a tempo that’s closest to your current project tempo. For example, if your project tempo is 170 BPM and you load a loop which should be 174 BPM, MASCHINE will now set the Source Tempo as 174 BPM instead of 87 BPM as it did previously.

    ADDED “Re-pitch” engine mode to the Audio plug-in
    This engine simply retunes/repitches the loop (like speeding up or slowing down a record) to make it conform to the Project tempo. This mode requires significantly less CPU power than the default mode, but you will not be able to retune the loop at all (any pitches programmed in Gate mode will be ignored—only the timing of the programmed notes will be used to gate the playing audio).

    ADDED Ableton Live DAW Integration for MASCHINE MK3
    Mixer and basic DAW Control. Access Ableton Live Mixer via MASCHINE MK3 hardware: Volume, Pan, Mute / Solo / Arm states are visible on screens. Also access essential controls: Play / Stop / Record / Session record, Clip Navigation, Launch & Record, Quantize, Undo / Redo, Automation Toggle, Tap Tempo, and Loop Toggle.

    IMPROVED Recorded Takes are now saved and recalled as part of the Project

    ADDED Automatic external audio recording latency compensation
    This compensation will be in effect when recording from an External Input and with the Monitoring parameter turned Off. The system currently works based upon the overall latency reported by the selected audio interface.

    REMOVED Right-click removal of Events in the Pattern Editor
    In this version, the normal context menu is now opened on right-click. Events can still be deleted using a double-click as well as using the "Paint" and "Erase" tools.

    CHANGED Right-click behavior in the Arranger
    In this version, right-click no longer removes Patterns from Scenes. It now opens a context menu with many useful options for arranging.

    IMPROVED Behavior and cursor icons for resizing Events in the Pattern Editor
    The active area for resizing Events is also increased.

    FIXED Prelisten controls would disappear on the Samples tab of the User Library

    FIXED It wasn’t possible to Quick Edit notes on the MASCHINE JAM

    FIXED Recording Settings would remain disabled if you cancel the recording during the waiting period before recording actually starts

    FIXED The BPM and Swing values in the header would not update their values when loading a new Project

    FIXED Duplicate would actually duplicate note events even if none were selected

    Version 2.7.3 - 2018-04-05
    Audio Plug-in Improvements.

    • ADDED The ability to enable and disable Audio plug-in playback per Pattern when in LOOP mode. Double-clicking the waveform will toggle playback for the selected Pattern. Alternatively, the loops can be enabled or disabled via the STEP page on the hardware controllers
    • ADDED A LOOP recording mode to the Record tab, and the Record tab is now available for both Sampler and Audio plug-ins. When choosing the new LOOP mode, the start of recording will be quantized to the start of the Pattern. Furthermore, when the recording is complete, the loop will automatically be loaded into an Audio plug-in and will immediately begin playback

    MASCHINE MK3 Improvements.

    • ADDED Event Editing on MASCHINE MK3 with 4-Directional Encoder. Select, nudge, pitch-shift and change the length of notes with the 4-Directional Encoder in the events window (on hardware screens)
    • ADDED Apple Logic DAW Integration for MASCHINE MK3 - Mixer and basic DAW Control. Access Logic Mixer via MASCHINE MK3 hardware (Volume, Pan, Mute / Solo states are visible on screens). Access Essential Controls: Play / Stop / Record, Quantize, Undo / Redo, Automation Toggle, Tap Tempo, and Loop Toggle

    • CHANGED Clear Auto now removes Automation Events from the focus Pattern rather than Automation Parameters
    • CHANGED KOMPLETE KONTROL MK2: Pressing CLEAR also removes Automation Events (PATTERN page)

    Version 2.7.2 - 2017-12-21

    • Fixed an issue on the KOMPLETE KONTROL MK2 where the screens could become unresponsive after adjusting the Source parameters of an Audio plug-in.
    Version 2.7.1 - 2017-12-18
    • Fixed an issue where PATTERN+DUPLICATE and SCENE+DUPLICATE on MASCHINE MK3 would duplicate Sounds rather than the intended Patterns or Scenes

    • Fixed an issue that could cause the KOMPLETE KONTROL MK2 screens to respond slowly to user input

    • Fixed an issue which had unintentionally blocked the operability of Instrument previews in the User Library
    Version 2.7.0 - 2017-12-14

    “Audio” plug-in:

    This new plug-in is used for synchronized playback of an audio loop in a Pattern. It will apply time-stretching in real-time to ensure that the loop plays in sync with your Project, even if you change the Project Tempo while playing. Each Audio plug-in can play only one audio loop at a time, but multiple Audio plug-ins can be loaded in order to layer multiple loops together.

    Attempting to load a sample into an empty Sound Slot will result in that sample being loaded into an Audio plug-in if that sample has been tagged with "Loops". You can also select the Audio plug-in directly, then load any sample file into it. It is also possible to change the Sampler to an Audio plug-in and vice versa -- the audio sample will remain in the Sound Slot even as you change the plug-in type.

    Upon loading into the Audio plug-in, MASCHINE will attempt to determine the length and tempo of the audio loop by assuming that the loop is cut to a proper length (like 4 bars long). If needed, the detected length and tempo can be edited so the audio loop plays properly in sync.

    The Audio plug-in has two modes:
    LOOP is the default setting where the loaded loop will play continuously whenever there is an active Pattern in the Group. You can see the audio waveform in the Pattern Editor to understand how the loop aligns with the Pattern.

    GATE is similar to the LOOP mode where the loaded loop will play continuously. However, the loop will only be audible in locations where you place Notes in the Pattern. Furthermore, the pitch of the loop will be transposed based on the Note's pitch (e.g. Note C3 will play the sample at its original pitch, while C4 plays the sample one octave higher than normal).

    MASCHINE MK3 Improvements (Requires FW 1.4.1):
    • Route the Line Outputs to the Headphones from within the software or from the hardware
    • Increased pad sensitivity
    • Adjust screen, button and pad brightness directly from the hardware
    • Adjust audio interface and MIDI settings directly from the hardware
    • Adjust pad sensitivity control directly from the hardware
    • Fixed a velocity issue that could occur when hitting multiple pads at a time (Requires FW 1.4.1)
    • Fixed an issue where multiple events would be generated for one hit on the pads (Requires FW 1.4.1)

    Additional improvements and fixes:
    • The File > Export menu option now allows exporting Scenes from the Ideas View

    • You can now perform a “vertical zoom” on the contents of the Pattern editor, essentially doubling the height of the lanes for each Sound Slot or Note, by double-clicking on the vertical scroll bar in the Pattern Editor or by turning knob 7 when viewing the Pattern Editor on MASCHINE STUDIO and MK3 controllers. The zoom is independent between software and hardware. You can also set the default Sound Lane Height in the preferences.

    • Fixed an issue where the Flanger did not save/restore Source setting

    Version 2.6.8 - 2017-08-21
    New in Maschine 2.6.8:
    • Bass Synth for MASCHINE
    • This is MASCHINE's first internal synthesizer. You can find all the important parameters for shaping your sound on the first parameter page. On the 2nd page, you can find the glide parameter, which works especially well if you modulate it.
    • On MASCHINE JAM, the upper row of the PIANO ROLL is where you program glides similar to a well known bass synthesizer with internal sequencer. This only works for the Bass Synth.
    • Isomorphic keyboard layout for MASCHINE JAM
    • MASCHINE JAM now offers an alternative layout to play melodies. It is more intuitive and can be learned easily. Simply touch the encoder while in KEYBOARD mode to expose the on-screen overlay and set the PAD LAYOUT parameter to "ISOMORPH”.

    Fixed Issues:
    • MASCHINE crashed in rare cases while saving a project
    • MASCHINE JAM could freeze when switching instances while using the smart strips
    • MASCHINE JAM PERFORM FX potentially stayed engaged when changing group focus while using PERFORM FX
    • In some cases the Randomizer did not respect the set scale

    Version 2.6.7 Hotfix - 2017-07-19
    • FIXED an issue where, when loading a project, it was possible that not all samples would load and no error message about the missing samples would be shown.

    Version 2.6.6 - 2017-07-03

    Ideas View Improvements Release.
    • ADDED Drag-to-Reorder/Duplicate Scenes in Ideas View
      You can drag Scenes left or right to re-order them at the top of the Ideas View. This is purely a visual feature which does not affect the current Arrangement. You can also hold ALT (or CTRL on PC) to perform a drag-and-duplicate to quickly make new instances of Scenes before experimenting with new Pattern combinations.
    • ADDED Drag-to-Reorder/Duplicate Groups in Ideas View
      As in the Arranger view, it's now possible to drag the Groups left and right in the Ideas view to re-order them. Furthermore, by holding ALT (or CTRL on PC), you can drag-and-duplicate Groups to quickly make additional layers or secondary Groups for sound experimentation.
    • ADDED Drag-and-drop content onto Groups in Ideas View
      As in the Arranger view, it's now possible to load new content from the Browser onto Groups in the Ideas View. Simply drag the content onto the Group name at the bottom of the Ideas View.
    • ADDED Set Macro in Software
      Simply right-click on the name of a control (the text below the knob, switch, or menu) and choose 'Create Master/Group/Sound Macro' to add a Macro control to the Master, Group, or Sound level, or choose 'Remove Master/Group/Sound Macro' to remove the control from the current Macro list.
    • ADDED 'Manage Products…' option in the File menu
      Use this to launch Native Access in order to install a new KONTAKT NKS library or instrument. After authorization and installation, the new product will be available for use in MASCHINE's Browser.
    • FIXED Pressing up on keyboard while focused on an empty cell in the top row of the Ideas view would create a Pattern
    • FIXED When pinning the DUPLICATE or AUTO page on JAM, this would also cause the view to toggle between Ideas and Arranger
    • FIXED SHIFT+SCENE did not toggle Ideas/Arranger views when the Duplicate page was pinned on
    • FIXED Dragging MIDI export from the Pattern Editor into a new Pattern
    • FIXED Playhead would not always wrap to beginning of Scene until host playback was started
    • FIXED Scale Type was not retained when dragging an Instrument/Sound/Sample to the '+' in the Arranger View
    • FIXED Events erased via ERASE+GROUP were still being played back
    • FIXED The wrong sample would sometimes be loaded when dragging in new samples from the Files tab of the Browser
    • KNOWN ISSUE Loading items with ENTER in the Browser Results List
      When MASCHINE is hosted as a plug-in, it is not possible to load items from the Browser Results List using ENTER on the computer keyboard.
    • KNOWN ISSUE The focus-follow is broken when mixing 32/64bit plugins
      MASCHINE and KOMPLETE KONTROL focus-follow features do not support combined 32bit/64bit plug-ins in a session. Both MASCHINE and KOMPLETE KONTROL plug-in instances must be 64bit for the focus-follow features to work correctly.
    • KNOWN ISSUE Resizing issues on dual screen
      REAKTOR window cannot be resized if MASCHINE is being used in a dual screen setup where the primary window is larger than the secondary window.
