When using KKMK2 with Maschine MK3 as a plugin in a DAW, transport on KKMK2 does not work!

    Hi all,

    If you frequent the Komplete Kontrol S-Series sub-forum on here then you might be aware of the lack of MCU and thus the Host Transport Control not working as expected in DAWs that lack Advanced Host Integration, and instead rely on MCU on KK MK1: https://www.native-instruments.com/...ol-mk2-due-to-ni-removing-mcu-support.329081/

    Bafflingly, the transport on the Maschine MK3 works relatively alright when used as a VST in Studio One (or any DAW that doesn't have Advanced Host Integration but supports MCU)-- so why can we not feed button presses from the KKMK2 to the Maschine plugin to then control the DAW's transport via MCU? Seems completely backwards to me, especially when the KKMK2 directly integrates with the Maschine VST, and subsequently doesn't even need the Komplete Kontrol VST to be running.

    Perhaps a dev can shine some light on why this cannot or isn't yet being done?
