This thread provides information about upcoming patches for Maschine. It will be updated whenever new information becomes available. --------- The currently available software version is 2.7.2 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) --------- 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 2.6.11 - 2017-11-28 MK3 - Phones and Line Output routing options, adjusting HW preferences directly from the hardware and pad performance optimisation (Requires FW 1.4.1). ADDED Route the Line Outputs to the Headphones from within the software or from the hardware ADDED Increased pad sensitivity ADDED Adjust screen, button and pad brightness directly from the hardware ADDED Adjust audio interface and MIDI settings directly from the hardware ADDED Adjust pad sensitivity control directly from the hardware FIXED Velocity issues when hitting multiple pads at a time (Requires FW 1.4.1) FIXED Multiple events for one hit on the pads (Requires FW 1.4.1) IMPORTANT: 2.6.11 has been pulled from NA, it will be merged into one big update together with 2.7. Spoiler: Previous Versions Version 2.6.10 - 2017-10-25 Hotfix update ADDED Ableton Live template scripts FIXED Group input and MIDI routing errors FIXED General stability for MASCHINE MK3 and KOMPLETE Version 2.6.9 - 2017-09-28 ADDED Support for the new MASCHINE MK3 Hardware Support for KOMPLETE KONTROL S49 and S61 MK2 hardware Revised User Interface for MASCHINE STUDIO and MASCHINE MK3 FIXED Bass Synth user presets are now written with the correct tag for browsing Switching to midi mode on MASCHINE JAM while using the Smart Strip could lead to hanging notes Navigation to the "+" in the plug-in chain is now possible via the pads on MASCHINE MIKRO In some cases the Randomizer didn't fully respect the set scale Audio level meters were incorrectly being shown on the Duplicate page of MASCHINE STUDIO A potential freeze which could sometimes occur when trying to delete Scene Bank 1 A crash which could occur when repeatedly right-clicking on the “+” button in the Mixer view On STUDIO, it was possible to navigate to Page Bank 0 which caused cosmetic issues An issue where some new MASCHINE Expansion Packs would not respect their activation when MASCHINE was running in 32-bit mode On Windows, there was an issue syncing the time signature between the MASCHINE plug-in and its host application 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. KNOWN ISSUE 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.
