Greetings Maschine users and moderators... I have several questions about the Maschine (I don't have one, yet): 1. Is it possible to step record sliced material? 2. Is there an octave switch for playing melodic material, or do you have to adjust the root key? 3. Since it is possible to use multiple instances of the Maschine software within a DAW, does each instance have separate access to 8 outs? 4. Do effects sustain when switching patterns? Thanks!
