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

    Does anyone know the best way to transfer a track made in Maschine + or MK3 to Akai force into the arrangement view? If so how do you do it?

    I believe the best way would be to first open up your Maschine project in VST mode in Ableton (if you have it), route all audio/midi into ableton tracks/clips, export the Ableton live set as ALS, and open the ALS file in the Akai Force.

    With a bit of work, you should be able to convert your drum groups manually into ableton drum racks or impulse instances. If you manage to do this, then these should be correctly imported by Akai Force as well, which supposedly converts drum racks and impulse presets into Akai Drum Programs.

    I have also read there is a new conversion app which converts maschine extensions into Akai format (for MPC live/X/One & Force). Check the Akai force thread on gear slutz

    Nope, that's the old one. This one is donationware IIRC and was just released. Win only I think.
