1. We're currently conducting systematic tests with the release version of macOS 11 (Big Sur) in order to offer full compatibility of our products as soon as possible. You can find our latest compatibility status - here


    Please note that although announced at the same time as macOS Big Sur, Apple Silicon processors are an independent release with separate compatibility concerns for NI products. Compatibility with macOS Big Sur will not yet ensure compatibility with Apple Silicon processors. At the moment, Native Instruments products are not supported on computers with Apple Silicon processors. Read more - here

should there be a Maschine+ specific sub forum?

    Working in standalone mode is quite different, and doesn't follow the same rules as when connected to a computer. I'm here looking for M+ specific posts, and in my opinion it'd be more convenient if they were in their own sub-forum.

    Hum... It might make sense but with a very small userbase if the MK3 users that are used to doing it all from the HW don't hang there then there wont be many people to help out.

    You can use the forum search function

    If you search maschine+ Or maschine + , this does bring up maschine + threads , but is not 100% accurate.
    You don’t get any search results for searching + , which would narrow the results down

    Since I‘m not very active within this forum the last months (sorry for that), I‘m a bit overwhelmed with all the different threads. There are already lots of M+ related topics (likely growing) and I think this should be reason enough to provide a specific area for M+ . The new M+ subforum should also have „sticky threads“ to pin fundamental information regarding M+. ✌

    Another suggestion:
    Maybe it's possible to have a M+ ribbon/tag for this forum...

    yea, it's difficult to keep track of new M+ threads

    It does seem a tiny bit unfair for owners of other devices tho, a new Mikro Mk3 user might also want to see only threads that relate to his controller for example. IMO to add a M+ tag we would have to add tags for all Controllers too. It's normal for the forum to get flooded with questions about whatever the latest hardware is and M+ getting preferential treatment is a bit odd.

    Apart from that detail I am OK with either one, a tag or a new subforum but this is not my decision to make, I don't even have that sort of forum management permissions.

    Of course I thought about the other controllers but initially I didn't mention it.
    What about tags for all controllers and even major software versions? When there is a particular related content, then tags could/should be used. This would keep the already existing structure and should be more easily for the moderator and a subform is obsolete. ;)

    I would consider this more as forum improvement.
    Based on this, a more specific search is possible by use of the mentioned tags.

    The only thing is, that we have to deal with more than "a tag". :cool:

    What do you guys think?
