This thread provides information about upcoming patches for Maschine. It will be updated whenever new information becomes available. --------- The currently available software version is 2.6.5. Please make sure that your installation is up to date. System Requirements: MacOS 10.11 or 10.12 (latest update), Intel Core i5, 2 GB RAM (4 GB recommended) Windows 7, 8, or 10 (latest Service Pack, 32/64-bit), Intel Core i5 or equivalent CPU, 2 GB RAM (4 GB recommended) --------- New in Maschine 2.6.5: “+Routing” button added to Group Browser. When active, Audio and MIDI routings saved in the Group will be loaded with the Group. When deactivated, Audio and MIDI routings will not be loaded (thus preserving any existing Audio and MIDI routings set by the user). Ideas View has been added to MASCHINE which provides an overview of the Patterns and Scenes in the current Project similar to the grid layout of the MASCHINE JAM controller. Scenes and Patterns can be created and combined in this view without affecting the current arrangement. Select the Scene to edit by clicking a Scene button at the top of the grid, then click Patterns in the grid to assign them to the Scene (assigned Patterns are brightly lit). To un-assign an assigned Pattern, simply click on it. To create new Patterns in this view, double-click in an empty grid cell. A new button has been added for toggling between Ideas and Arranger Views. Keyboard shortcuts of CMD+1 and CMD+2 allow for switching to Ideas View and Arranger View, respectively. From the JAM controller, pressing the SONG button will toggle between Ideas and Arranger Views. On the 4x4 pad controllers, Ideas and Arranger Views can be accessed via the NAVIGATE screen or quickly toggled by pressing SHIFT+SCENE. In Arranger View, arrangements are created by making Sections and selecting a Scene to use in each of the Sections. This allows for the same Scene to be used multiple times in the arrangement, each with their own independent lengths. It’s also possible to assign no Scene to the Section (for silence). From the hardware controllers, the SCENE buttons are used to access Sections when Arranger View is active. When creating a new Section in the Arranger View, it will be empty (no Scene) by default. Scenes can be assigned by right-clicking on the Section and choosing a Scene from the “Select >” menu. On the Classic MASCHINE and STUDIO controllers, Scene assignment, Section Position and Length can be set using the knobs below the screens. From the JAM controller, simply hold a SCENE button (referring to the Section you want to edit) and rotate the Encoder to select a Scene for the Section. (NOTE: Because of this change, adjusting the Loop Range from JAM is now done by pushing down on the Encoder and turning it while holding a SCENE button). In the Ideas View, right-clicking on a Scene and selecting “Append to Arrangement” will create a new Section at the end of the arrangement and will assign the Scene to it. You can mute Groups in the Ideas View by left-clicking, or solo by right-clicking, on the Group Names (e.g. “A1”, “B1”, etc.) And improvement has also been made where Expansion Packs which use REAKTOR 5 will now be automatically loaded into REAKTOR 6 if only REAKTOR 6 or REAKTOR 6 PLAYER is installed. Added a preference for the JAM hardware which enables a second illumination mode where selected Patterns are shown in white and unselected Patterns are shown in a bright color. This can improve the visibility of the Pattern Matrix in certain lighting situations. Fixed Issues: Fixed a bug where very short loop ranges could lead to a crash. Fixed an issue where the audio export of a Pattern would be the incorrect length if the containing Scene was longer than the Pattern’s length. MIKRO: Fixed an issue where Scenes with 2-digit names would be unnecessary truncated on the display. WINDOWS: Fixed an issue where knob values would jump when adjusting them with the mouse when the screen magnification was greater than 100%. Fixed an issue where Group input side chain settings were not being recalled when reloading a Project. Fixed an issue for the MIDI CC controls where the minimum and maximum ranges were different between the software and hardware controls. Fixed an issue with the Beatdelay effect where setting 0% feedback would cause a feedback loop. Fixed an issue where clipping/loud feedback could occur when the Compressor's sidechain width is 100% and gain is 1.00. Fixed an issue where MASCHINE would quit after clicking “Cancel” during a Save-on-Quit. Fixed an issue where MASCHINE could crash after undoing and redoing Chord settings. Fixed an issue where Bluecataudio Patchwork would crash MASCHINE. JAM: Fixed an issue where changing QuickEdit mode while holding the Encoder in QuickEdit mode results in undefined mode. JAM: Group Bank now follows Group Focus in the software. Save Project with Samples now remembers the last folder used. STUDIO: Fixed an issue on the Events page where, when holding ERASE + rotating the Jog Wheel to delete events, one too many events would sometimes be erased. Fixed an issue where the mouse cursor would sometimes disappear after dragging a knob when using MASCHINE as a plug-in in Pro Tools under Windows. Known Issues 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. 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. 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. MASCHINE cannot be installed on case-sensitive file systems. --------- Patch status explanation specification - the changes to the software are defined, including details of new features and the list of fixes. in development - the code of the software is being worked on by the developers. beta testing - the new version is checked by a testing group for functionality, stability and compatibility. final testing - the update goes through a final series of standardized tests prior to release.
