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

Show mini version of NI plugins on controller screen

    This would be especially handy with plugins like Supercharger, where you need to set the input at the correct level to use the plugin at its sweet spot.
    Currently this can only be seen on the computer screen with the plugin window open. A mini version of the plugin window on one of the controller screens would solve this.

    Indeed! Right now there is no way to see the amount of gain reduction on the controller screens.

    Yes, if we can use all the power of the mk3's nice screen to see the graph of the ADSR envelope or filter on the sampler for example. Or a cooler version of massive directly on hardware (not only the parameter value and the image with the plug in name). If we can have a real graphical view of the parameters (like on the push2 for example), it will be more immersive, and we will want to stay more on a controller than on the computer.

    +1. Some plugins really need more visual feedback than a list of numbers. This is especially true for those of us running Maschine+ in standalone mode. We don't even have the option to look at a computer screen for the plugin UI, since there is no computer.

    Maschine MK3 and Maschine+ (and also KK MK2) have these 2 beautiful screens which are perfect for showing a graphical interface for NI plugins, but instead all we see is a static image of a plugin and 8 controls with numerical values. This is such a waste :(

    Even Maschine MK1 and MK2 should be capable of showing a (more simplified and without colors) graphical interface for NI plugins.
