DESCRIPTION

The MASCHINE Sequencer Block is an eight-channel trigger sequencer designed to control Blocks patches directly from your MASCHINE MK2 controller. Each channel has independent controls for the attributes DIVISION, DIRECTION, LENGTH, and START, making it easy to quickly create complex polyrhythmic patterns. The eight pattern slots allow you to store and recall patterns in their entirety. Patterns can be copied and pasted between slots by using the COPY and PASTE buttons.

Additionally, the MASCHINE Sequencer features a Euclidean pattern generator that can be used to populate a channel with an algorithmically generated sequence.

Although designed to be used in conjunction with the MASCHINE MK2 controller, all parameters are available in the software panel, allowing you to use the MASCHINE Sequencer without a MASCHINE MK2 controller.



The MASCHINE Sequencer works perfectly with the Niji Drums, an example patch is included with the download file. Download here:
http://www.native-instruments.com/en/reaktor-community/reaktor-user-library/entry/show/10151/

Please note: The MASCHINE Sequencer requires a specific controller configuration that you need to load onto your MASCHINE MK2 controller utilizing the Controller Editor software. Be aware that loading a new configuration will overwrite any unsaved changes made to your current controller configuration.

If you wish to keep the current state of your controller configuration, save your current configuration before loading the configuration required by the MASCHINE Sequencer.

How to setup the MASCHINE Sequencer for use with your MASCHINE MK2 controller:

1. Launch the Native Instruments Controller Editor application, go to File > Open Configuration and open the "Reaktor Blocks - Maschine Mk2.ncc" template.

2. Switch your MASCHINE MK2 controller to MIDI mode by pressing [SHIFT] + [CONTROL] on the controller.

3. Open the Audio and MIDI Settings in REAKTOR and go to the MIDI tab. In the Inputs pane, set the "Maschine MK2 Virtual Input" (OS X) / "Maschine Mk2 In" (Win) entry to "On". In the Outputs pane, set the "Maschine MK2 Virtual Output" (OS X) / "Maschine Mk2 Out" (Win) entry to "On".

You can now use your MASCHINE MK2 controller to play and program the MASCHINE Sequencer in Blocks.

!!STEP ONE IS A TYPE-O!! You must select OPEN TEMPLATE, not config. Took me 20 minutes to figure that out, hopefully I save you that time.

Here's my version for Maschine MK1, works fine except for the lights. Just copied all settings from the Mk2 template in Controller Editor and had to shift some knobs: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B6-PLu3Gh1moelJqc3IyNXI5UmM

Trying to follow the directions below... {"Reaktor Blocks - Maschine Mk2.ncc" } this file is not located inside the Maschine Sequencer download folder. {*Reaktor Blocks - Maschine Mk2.ncm2} is inside the Maschine Sequencer download folder. Where do we find the "Reaktor Blocks - Maschine Mk2.ncc" that's in your step #1 ? Thank you.

Does this one only work in standalone mode? the Kontrol F1 mod has an issue in Ableton. If this one works in Ableton then there's hope for the F1 version :)

Sussed it. Correct setup in Cont Editor is: 1. Launch the Native Instruments Controller Editor application, select "Open" from the "Edit" drop down menu in the "Template" pane, and open the "Reaktor Blocks - Maschine Mk2.ncm2" (MASCHINE Mk2) / "Reaktor Blocks - Maschine Studio" (MASCHINE STUDIO) template.

Mapping appears wrong in mk11. I also needed to rename the configuration file to .ncc before it would open.

It would be awesome if the division function supported odd numbers: 1/3, 1/5, 1/7. I haven't looked at its guts but is that possible?

hey Matt Cellitti, it's viktor. in less its been fixed, If your using Maschine 2 inside of a daw like Live 9, there was an issue specific to Reaktor plugins with-in {Maschine plugin(midi ch1)}. Were Reaktor would not reset its midi channel and was stuck on midi channel 1. Had to manually change the midi channel in reaktor on both levels. maybe something similar to what your experiencing.

I followed the install directions and also updated all NI programs Machine Studio does not reflect what the Machine Sequencer is doing in Reaktor. Has anyone else gotten it to work?

Some real issues with certain steps transmitting other MIDI/Note data...for instance, I began tweaking the example ensemble to have (2) MIX 4's instead of the "add" module. Now every time I hit Step 15 on the controller it automatically makes Ch 1 of the Mix 4 drop to zero. Any ideas? Big issues if you try to add a Note In block for triggering other Osc's as well....

Make sure that you backup your existing Maschine Mk2 Templates in Controller Editor (FILE > SAVE CONFIGURATION), before opening the "Reaktor Blocks - Maschine Mk2.ncc". Otherwise you will wipe out all of your existing templates...

I don't think it will work with the MK1 because, you need to load Maschine Mk2.ncc into the Controller Editor App,
