I was wondering, is anyone using it with Pro Tools? If so, what is your workflow? It seems like you lose a lot of the functionality of Maschine when you use it as a plug-in. The whole flow of the program seems lost to me when you are forced to use the Pro Tools transport....
Make sure your audio routing/sample rate settings are set up properly.

Make sure you use it as an input on an instrument track and route audio from there. Also, you can make stuff in standalone (drums, parts of a track or whole tracks even) save the project and open it up in pro tools afterwards thats what I usually do, and add external stuff afterwards via pro tools.

1 more request for maschine: kinda wish the controller had more buttons and less pages to scroll thru. And maybe a dedicated drum mapping mode where you woundnt have to keep moving the root note to the sound.

Ok bye!!

A push and maschine combo would be deadly

Make the main beat with maschine as a plug in and use push for its scale pad function, finish the rest in live.

Mike Gao "Notice the Maschine in front of my couch instead of my computer. It really allows you to separate yourself from the computer, and it’s great to leave your computer and relax on the couch while still making beats. I may be biased, because this summer, I worked on some new features for the Maschine as part of the Native Instruments R&D team. I don’t want to say anything and get in trouble, but the Maschine MkII update is only the tip of the iceberg of all the cool shit that Native is plotting for the Maschine.

The pads and velocity mapping are some of the best I’ve felt, and I can pretty much guarantee anyone who gets an MPC Renaissance instead will regret it after they see the kind of stuff that Native is cooking up." DJ TechTools

Interesting....

Sold my maschine after a few months, got the ren last week. Much more happy , instant progress , inspiration and sound improvement. I was originally an mpc user before going itb though. No hate on the maschine just not for me. It's not the tools anyway it's the user...

I think the tough think with maschine is that so many people know the mpc workflow. Why learn this when i already know that. That said im still undecided.

This is interesting....as I have spent the past year doing the same thing but with Akai working on the Ren. The things I have seen Akai cooking up...I certainly don't think any Ren user will regret their purchase. I won't go as far to guarantee anything as it isn't necessary. Maschine has to release an update to address Multitrack sequencing, MIDI capabilities, automation, mixing...to match what Akai has done with the Ren. Plus the Ren's controller is light years ahead of MKII controller.

I hate to predict doom as competition is always healthy...but with the Ren/Studio and now Live 9 with the Push controller (built by Akai)...Maschine is being attached from all sides.

thank you Jahrome for helping me with my therapy.. and imo i think the only thing akai had to do with abelton push was the pads .. and the only good thing about the ren is the sequencer from 1980s .. with that being said . this is a ni maschine thread . so i will not respond to you any more unless you have something helpful to add .. its pretty said that the only thing i have ever learned from you is how not to be a troll like you .. smdh

That doesn't even load all formats yet, maybe after more updates.

No product on the planet loads all Akai MPC formats. The Ren is the most capable MPC (or any drum machine) in this regard. You will see another update soon which improves upon this.

On another note, I tried out Maschine's MKII controller for the first time. I am curious to see how those pads will hold up now that they have MPC styled tact-switches. One of the tact switches on the display model 'sounded' as if it was wearing out already. I don't feel the MKII controller is worth it if you already own the MKI. I won't be upgrading my MKI until an MKIII controller is released.

Ableton Push controller looks very similar to Maschine. I see Push attracting a lot of actual and potential Maschine user's.

Cubase/Maschine Related.. Can you help a bro out?

I figured out how to get the MIDI from the maschine into cubase using it as a vst via sound batch midi setup... I got two questions/problems if you can help a bro out.

1. After I record my drums in a midi track in cubase, and have the midi registering/all the above in cubase, how do I transfer the exact loop/drum track and sounds/samples to audio so I can burn it to a cd?

2. In the same mode.. (Maschine/Cubase -MIDI).. When I enter "PAD MODE" and "KEYBOARD" to play different pitches with a snare, or a kick, it doesnt play back the different pitches I recorded, it only plays the "original/stock" sample, or the "not pitched/ not alterd sample".. How do I get the (keyboard/pad mode) to record as midi, and playback the samples in "pad/keyboard" mode, as midi..?


Thanks brothers.

I wouldn't call a new Midi Controller a upgrade the software changes are for all users so i don't think any MKI owner needs to get a MKII

It doesn't load MPC 2500 Akai OS produced songs. Hopefully Akai gets that worked out.

Atleast maschine was a new exiting idea,

Push and the Ren are based on old shit... What's really that new?

As a maschine user I'm really interested in what push can add to my workflow. I have no intentions of replacing maschine just add to it

There are plenty of products that are new ideas. Doesn't mean I want to make music with them.

I would much rather have a modernized, legendary old idea.

Akai is working on ensuring the Ren can load legacy MPC formats. MPC Tutor's review indicates MPC 1000, 2500, and 5000 files load properly in the Ren.

Aight, I am running maschine in 64bit mode and I am getting a weird sound coming from maschine. It sounds like digital clipping an the CPU in maschine spikes but doesn't peak when it happens. Does anyone know if this annoying issue is a windows problem? Any remedies? I have a MacBook that I could use instead but due to a space issue I would rather not. Thanks for any help.

Wrong part of the forum Jahrome. Do you know how to DJ or spin records? You check their new mixer the Z1 Kontrol mixer. How do you think akai's audio interfaces compare to NI's jahrome? Don't hear any complaints about Maschine 1.8 crashing.

I have no need for an NI or Akai audio interface. I currently use a UAD interface and will perhaps splurge on an Apogee interface.

I don't need to look for user review of 1.8 as I actually own Maschine..but I don't use it that much as it still doesn't have the features I need. There are plenty of Maschine users that feel the same way. Look no further than the Feature Suggestion threads in the NI Forum.

You in the wrong thread son! I noticed you been staying out the akai mpc ren thread ever since they put you on blast for dissing a mpc ren user in the other forum. Stop it five, you ain't fooling nobody.

Staying out of the MPC Ren thread has nothing to do with someone putting me on blast silly. Look again...I still post there. The rules of this forum limit what we can discuss or display...so I post less frequently. I still post in the MPC Forums where I diss that 'MPC Ren' user you are referring to whenever I get a chance.

Getting back to Maschine....1.8 and the MKII controller...they are not being met with the excitement NI anticipated. MKIII controller and 2.0 next?

Isn't the MPC Ren and big flop?
