1. Hi everyone,

    Apple just released Logic Pro 10.5 for MacOS 10.15. We found out that Crush Pack, Mod Pack, Replika, and Replika XT will crash.

    Our teams are currently working on a fix, and we hope to have this out to you as soon as we can!

    Best wishes, 
    The NI Team

    Create a tool to easily browse through patterns. Possibility to navigate by instrument (drum / bass / keyboard… patterns), by style (rock, reggae, hip hop, jazz), by sub-style (cool jazz, Jazz-funk, Bebop, …), by tempo...

    Ideally the pattern browser will include midi grooves from instruments such as Abbey Road Drummer or Drumlab.

    Maschine 1.x had Patterns in the browser. Now we have MIDI import/export, but no way to load just Patterns to a Group...

    Having Patterns as an option in the browser would be welcome. Even having the option to load Groups with Patterns only would be a step in the right direction though.

    people are buying/selling midi packs now. Theres websites with midi banks that have been around for decades. Its time we put these old patterns to use!

    Long-standing request (though the only thread I can find here is this).

    Thanks, I'll merge the threads.

    PS:
    +1 I would absolutely love to be able to just load Patterns or MIDI.

    I tend to make my own kits and use similar pad placement, so I could easily have a custom pattern library to experiment, save drum patterns, fills, melodies, etc...

    Yeah, it's always been a bit annoying and, frankly, stupid that Patterns were removed from the Browser between 1.x and 2.0.

    Bit clunky, but one workaround is to create and update a Patterns Group, load it in your project, and either copy/paste or drag/drop Patterns from it to new Groups. Alternatively, make a habit of starting new Groups with this Pattern Group (i.e., before creating/loading any Sounds).
