Questions for Maschine Mikro MK3 owners!

    I'm considering to purchase a Maschine Mikro Mk3, but have read about some limitations and am not sure if they have addressed these out with new updates, here are some questions for those of you that own one:
    • is it finally possible to map the each pad to custom notes in MIDI mode?
    • will this device be supported in Control Editor in the future?
    • is there any way to transpose notes / octaves?
    • is it possible to change colors of the pads in MIDI mode?
    • do the transport buttons work with any DAW (eg. Cubase)?
    Thanks in advance :)

    All that is kind of the same question, not yet, should be available in the next update so all that will be possible soon, CE support, colors, etc...
    Yes, they send normal MIDI with Host Transport enabled in Controller Editor. (Setting it up in Cubase is still required though, it's not plug-and-play)
    As in a button that automatically transposes the pads notes up/down in MIDI Mode? No. You can, however, create a bunch of Pad Pages each triggering a different range of notes.

    Thanks D-One!

    Glad to hear most of those things could be fixed in the next update! I will keep an eye on the development then :)
