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

    Would be great to use the touch strip as a locator control, As the track is playing. Like the scrub wheel on my mixing desk, that can pause, scrub. In song mode and ideas. I automatically did go for it when the recent new feature was released thinking it would do this.

    The first time I tried I also a similar impression, if it shows the pattern to position it could be used to change that same pattern position AKA controlling the playhead within boundaries of the pattern only tho.

    I think this would be critical, as the physical space and perhaps resolution is just not there on the touchstrip for anything more than an 8 bar Pattern (16 tops).

    That's what I am thinking.
    Well... It could function as a scrubber in the sense of the more you hold your finger towards outside of the midpoint the faster it scrubs thru the arrangement, but this would be too awkward to use IMO.

    I think so too, but a forward/back x number of beats (user-defined) when swiping left/right could be useful.

    that would be cool, but would probably mean needing to push another button which for many would be too difficult or inconvenient! :D;)

    Peace,

    If you mean to differentiate between tapping to change playhead position within a Pattern and swiping to nudge playback forward/back, a shift/modifier wouldn't be necessary.

    It was a "Workflow" Joke...

    After having the Maschine a few weeks, this feature does feel like its missing, especially with the led's indicating the position.
